the long rigging road has started to be travelled.

Even the longest most arduous journey begins with the first step - she's looking fine so far mate.

right about time I got some rigging done.....the rugby world cup has ended badly for England so time to get the ropes out......for the rigging of course.

Yes, sad thing really after their stellar performance against New Zealand!

Hi Harlequin, 

I'm building Bellona and am following your work with interest. I took a decision to stray from the instructions and sort of start from the inside out. To complete everything on the main deck with both poop & quarter deck in place seemed illogical to me. So now I'm just finishing off the quarter deck pillars and belaying rack so here's question.. As far as I can see the instructions & plans call for a single hole to be drilled in both fore and aft post for future rigging but your photo seems to show 2 in forward port & Starboard post (I can't quite make out your aft posts). Am I missing something or is this your innovation & does it apply to all bits calling for double rigging?

All the best Gan

well after several false starts ….some main mast horse stirrups to start things off...….I have spliced the rope to form the loop and used a tiny drop of glue to hold in place.

Just thought I’d let you know of an error in the placing of the pillars near the binnacle and under the poop deck for anyone doing corels Bellona. The first pic is where I had them originally and the second pic is the correct positioning with one single pillar in front of the binnacle and the other two further under the poop deck.

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.
