When to attach sails to a model

Recommended Posts

I've started to rig my model of Scottish Maid and am thinking of putting sails on her. What is the best stage for doing this? Do I do all the standing rigging first? Should I attach the sails to the yards before rigging the yards? It seems to me that if I put too much rigging on the vessel then I will find lines getting in the way when I try to rig the sails.

I do all my standing rigging then a yard at a time starting with the lowers. I go fore, main, mizzenmast. Then the next yard up. Gets kinda tight as you go up but it allows you nice runs. Have lots of tweezers and rigging tools on hand plus a bucketful of patience. Have fun.
