  1. I just don't rig canons as personally I prefer it that way. I still do all the other rigging.
  2. I rather agree with you. I never rig cannons as, when I have tried the ropes etc never look to scale and do detract from other deck detail. Each to his/her own of course.
  3. Thank you, that is very kind. I have done the masts according to the given measurements rather than take them off the plan but I may ask you about the yards when I get to them.
  4. As a matter of interest, are you taking measurements from the plans consistently ? My reason for asking is that I am making up the masts. The plan has measurements on it but the drawing which is supposed to be 1:1 is very different. The measurements given are considerably longer. It may be something for you to bear in mind. What do you think ?
  5. You are quite right, I know my computer needs changing!! Sorry and your doors look very fine.
  6. Thank you my friend, I ordered some of the gold paint you recommended and it arrived today. I have to say it is the best gold paint I have ever used and believe me, I have tried a lot!
  7. Thank you very much I shall order some. Your build is coming along beautifully, I too am building one and I am at the same stage as you are. I shall keep watching with interest.
  8. Have you repainted your cast pieces and if so what with ? Your brass straps look amazing, I am having a real struggle with them.

  10. I didn't do the hasegawa sopwith because I am not keen on all the plastic parts. If money is no object try the Curtiss Jenny. Not cheap but if you like rigging it is definitely for you!
