As I mentioned before, I broke the top of the mast because there wasn't enough wood as I had built a sheave in it.

The repaired mast. Got rid of the sheave, molded wood putty in the hole and wrapped it with roping. This roping is all along the mast so it doesn't look that awkward.

I read a long time ago that you can use clear nail polish on the ratlines and I have used it on every ship I've built that had ratlines. The clove hitch doesn't come apart and it is virtually invisible to the eye.

Standing rigging is complete.

I finished the topsail with the clew lines and the lines (that I don't have a name for). They are tied as half moon shapes on each side of the top sail.

The directions only show one side on how it integrates with the rigging. I went to the Frisian maritime museum http://www.friesscheepvaartmuseum.nl/ and looked at there ship models as well as there paintings. Also I came upon a model where it clearly shows how it is rigged.

Looking good Marc,  How are you going to prevent a repeat?  That area looks very fragile.

Thanks, Dave. I am trying to be very careful. So if I need something on my table and it is behind the boat, I need to STOP, Think, Look around, move ship, get item, bring ship forward and work on it.

I am working on the running rigging and attaching the sails to the roping and masts. Adding more rope where needed as I go.

Just a close-up from the standing & running rigging.


Attached File  RDYM598.JPG   251.5KB   0 downloads

I use toothpicks to keep the ropes taught and this is temporary. I tighten here and there so it is just a matter of removing the toothpick, pull the rope a bit and put the toothpick back. I will do this until everything is taught, even and looks good. Then the roping will become permanent.

For dgbot - First picture, lower right corner - I broke off the flagstaff. I'll just wait till I finish the rigging and start on the flags.

After seeing "egkb" serving jig, I decided to make one as well. For this idea to materialize I give ALL the credit to him. :)

All items except the LEGO gears I already had in my collection or scavenged from other items and all pictures give measurements and descriptions.

Attached File  01-LEGO gears.jpg   272.89KB   0 downloads
Purchased 2 sets of LEGO gears from eBay. I did 2 sets in case I made mistakes with enlarging the hole for pulling the rods through (and I did make mistakes). I used 4 - 40 tooth gears for connecting the rod and tubing together and 2 - 16 tooth gears to act as nuts on the brass tubing.


Attached File  02-Frame.jpg   176.89KB   0 downloads
The brass tubing is from my R/C pile and the metal rod is from an old cloth hanger. Basswood is used for this jig.


Attached File  03-Gears with rods.jpg   182.8KB   0 downloads
Attached LEGO gears. Top gear has a brass tube for serving rope and the bottom gear holds the metal rod. Same setup on the opposite side of the jig.


Attached File  04-Brass sleeve.jpg   144.86KB   0 downloads
I cut up 2 - 1/2" brass tubing to act as a sleeve for the metal rod. This was hammered into the 2 holes where the rod goes through for a tight fit. The metal rod turns smoothly.


Attached File  05-Serving rope.jpg   248.24KB   0 downloads
For serving roping can be pulled through the brass tubing. This is essential if the rope is longer than 12" inches.

Optional alligator clip attached to a rod which fits into the brass sleeve for serving blocks, etc.

Looks great!  Gotta love those Technics gears.  I use them once in a while for breadboards at work-- What costs $200 @ Stock Drive Products costs $40 @ the toy store. :)

This time I decided to omit the flags that come with the kits because, a. - they are one sided print and b. - they never fall correctly.

I am doing it from a handout from Gus Augustin - Equipment needed to make flags.
You make them from paper, fold them, wet them to take memory out, paint them with acrylic, fold them and you have a flag.

I make more than one so I can chose the best one and as the brochure says, it is cheap as you use paper and you get better at making them over time.

Thanks. It is difficult to get straight lines but then if I fold them correctly you may not see that. Kurt mentioned that if I keep practicing they will get better over time. That is why I made several this time.
Some people air brush the flags, I can't figure out how they do that.

Speaking of airbrushing, Kurt gave a workshop on that. Are you getting the pdf's on that? What ever you need, let me know.

Thank you Nigel. I enjoyed building the model. The Mary is a practice yacht towards my next build, the Staten Jacht - Utrecht. My 1st scratch.

The cat (Boomer, 21 lbs, and thinks he is a small dog). Wants to be everywhere I am and in the hobby room he has a basket right next to the wood. When these pictures were taken he has to be there, and will always stare at me, because he knows that if he paws the rigging and I notice it, his ears go back, jumps on the floor and hides.

Marc,

 

This yacht you build is very nice!  I like this type of ship particularly because it was the first wooden model I made (being eleven years old).  My parents were a bit doubful at that time, and I broke a lot of saws on it - but I did it.

 

And the model still excists (though it neads some repair now - ca. 40 years later)..
