Thank you for pointing it out.

Morning Per,

 

My mistake….. I see the date at 4 March…early in the morning maybe?

And then an other thing ( If you don't mind)

Under your name there is something written in bright green…..

I can not read it, maybe you can change the colour?

Sjors, thank you for pointing it out, I liked the green color because it didn't stand out to much.

It reads "Denial is futile, MSW 2.0 is here to stay."

I will change the color.

  Hi Per,

 

If you like that colour,don't change it!

I was just curious what was written there.

Now I know it  :D

I am the stage of rigging and sewing the sails.

I used the patterns on a much finer cloth than provided from Constructo, then a fabric fusion (permanent) to shorten and get something to sew into.

This way it wont fray on me.post-967-0-66501200-1376280836_thumb.jpg

Jib is done the main started.

Hi Per,

 

I have to look twice to see that the sails are on the plans and not on the ship.

That looks great!

Are you making everything in advance before you place it on the ship?

Thank you Sjors,

 

I am going to try to make as much as possible before placing it on her.

Can see potentials of damages while setting sails. Besides mast rings
is to be sewn into the sails, and that means sails has to be in place before masts go in place.

Unless someone has come up with some ingenious idea how to it afterwards.

 

Thank you

Went shopping today,

 

One item that our household is truly missing. First of all it will be used for the sails. Then for the curtains and drapes.

This one is also intended to do the upholstery in my convertible.

It's a sewing machine.

Commencing sewing tomorrow.

This picture is directly related to my build as I am working out the tweaks with the new sewing machine.

The fabric shown is the one to be used as sails, I have used a natural thread and a brown one.

In my opinion the natural blends into the fabric to much while the brown stands out more.

Next time I am passing JoAnns by I will pick up more colored threads.

Meanwhile any inputs of thread color for sails?post-967-0-46495400-1377116365_thumb.jpg
I also experimented with length, no 2 little narrow and 4 little to far apart. Probably going with no 3.

Will look at the plans for consultation.

The V-cut box idea is ingenious. I shall be using that for my next build as I don't have a whole lot of spare wood lying around.

Hmm, I haven't been paying attention to this amazing yacht in a  long time. So bizarre I haven't done the finishing things.

It's more about all the lines that is need to o be attached. Don't know why it bother me so much :(
I guess I have at most some 10 hours of working to finalize S/Y America......

Your "V" box is very clever an cost effective. I made a more elaborate stand so I can hold various size models over time.

Kevin,

I only have rigging left, and this is where all manufacturer fails, giving good instructions of how-to.

But someday I will have three ships that will its rigging done.

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.
