  7. Denis my friend... I allready did the knight. Its the rigging of the knight that I dont know how to do. Tegards Christos
  8. Thank you Dave and popey2sea. You have been very helpfull indeed.Now its very clear to me what is a "knight" and what it does. As I wrote to Andy my kit plans dont include the knight into the the rigging. It just sits there, witout any rigging. But I want to include it in the ships rigging in someway... maybe just to riggied it. Do you have any pictures I could look at. Thx again.for your help guys Christos
  9. Hi Andy. Thank you for the quick response and the wide and round explanations! Great help! That was very kind of you. I am my self an engineer so it wasnt hard to get the full picture. The only thing is that my kit doesnt use that part in its rigging. It just sits there without any rigging. After your explanation I came to the idea to place it into the rigging of my ship. That would be interesting I think. Could you please be again so kind, if you have available any pictures, to send me some picture to see how it can be done? Thank you again Andy... you ve been very helpfull Christos
