Hi Dirk,outstanding workmanship throughout your build,wonderful stuff. However,I think your Boom rests require rotating 90°,the boom could not rest in them as fitted.

The orientation of the boom crutches were just for better comparison with the original draft, sure they are rotated 😉

 

cheers

Merry Christmas my friends!! 🙂

 

Link is fixed. Scale is 1:64.

 

More work on the anchors ... I like to show both anchors in different conditions.

Lovely work, but the crutches should surely be turned so the boom could rest in them? The plan shows them parallel to the keel simply for clarity.

This is something very difficult to find information about: The Binnacle. There is one paper from the "Society for Nautical research" saying there is only ONE Model showing a cutter with a binnacle also surely all (?) had one.

 

Anyway the following is my interpretation as I like to show one on board.

I will do finalization tomorrow when the paint dried 🙂

As on starboard there is no anchor rope the hawse hole needs to be closed. I don't know if this is exactly right but it tells the story.

AAAH! The BINNACLE! I knew I'd forgotten something!

 

As all the others have said, you continue with great stuff, Dirk, very inspiring. Thanks for all the excellent close-up details.

 

Just one question of minor interest. It's only now I notice the lack of a hooded companionway. Was there a particular reason for that?

As far as I remember (it's a while) because of no companionway on my original plan 🙂

Thanks so much for your kind comments, captain_hook, John, Chris, David, Jean-Paul, Eamonn, Tony & all the likes. Really appreciated and always good to read such positive comments 🙂

 

One of the last parts to do is the buoy. Started with a simple variant ended with layered pear wood. Guess that is the way to go 🙂

Where did you get that binnacle diagram from, Dirk? Normally a binnacle has a central light and a compass  (glazed in) on each side - not the other way around. No criticism of your workmanship, though.

Diagram was Mondfeldt and on Chucks Syren it is the same... mmm ... seems I need to build a new one ...hmpf....

Well, there is always a room for improvement. For example a pipe with a protective cone (or just a cone) instead of holes, so water would not pour in.

Something like that:

Dirk,

 

Brilliant indeed - My mobile phone has been pinging almost continuously these last few days hahaha with your updates - stunning work :imNotWorthy:

 

PS: There was an earlier comment about your grid frames poss. running in the wrong direction. This got me curious - been looking through several books of 

period built model ships - photos have grid frames running in either direction. Hmmm??

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
