    While searching for info on the masts for my 1:96 MS  Phantom build, specifically the mast trucks, I came across this mast truck in an antique shop shown below that gave me some idea of its construction.


    While searching further I found this picture in Doris's Royal Caroline build.


I made this comment in her current build of the Royal Katherine:

     "You really pay attention to the smallest details, as can be seen by the flag at the stern of the Royal Caroline where you even detailed the truck on the flag pole.  Now, that is one detail that I have very seldom seen realistically addressed in such a small scale!"


    After seeing this photo, I thought that I should be able to make something similar for the upper masts on my build.  I haven't made anything in clay yet, but after seeing her version I'll give it a try.  (I'm assuming that hers was made from clay)
