  1. probably while this doesn’t look like normal rigged deadeyes, there seems to be some strap over them. Besides: all other stays visible in the pics are rigged with some sort of turnbuckle-like construction. Jan
  2. They do not show a considerable amount of detail, but in the Dutch Rijksmuseum collection, there are a couple of pics of Loreley. I took screenshots, and copied the link https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/NL/collectie/RP-F-F01148-M https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/collectie/RP-F-F01148-I https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/zoeken/objecten?q=S.m.s.+Loreley&p=1&ps=12&st=Objects&ii=0#/RP-F-F01148-Y,0 This one is frustrating: it shows the channels, but not the deadeyes. https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/zoeken/objecten?q=S.m.s.+Lore
  3. And in your second picture they look more like "normal deadeyes". I have once seen (and I blame myself for not remembering where) a nice illustration of the systems that have been invented in the rather short period between the mid-1850's when wooden deadeyes were standard, and the early 1900's, when steel turnbuckles were the standard. I thought it was on segelschiffsmodellbau, but the man I thought that posted denied doing so.... Still thinking and searching ….. Jan
  4. That is really a close call. Both look great. As you say: choice depends on the actual part you are looking at. I prefer the Eduards-version because of the breachlock does look a bot more detailed. But taking the handwheels as your main part, the other one is (marginally) better, at least in the pics. I guess that placed on the model both will be looking fantastic..... Jan
  5. Sounds like you have a nice organ. I try to find my way on a small, not so nice, early 20th century one. Bach doens't quite fit to something like that, and Mendelsohn is above my league I like the 'Psalmbewerkingen in Noord-Duitse stijl' van Sietze de Vries (also not fit for my instrument, but at least I can play them ) I'll folow your upcoming build. Not quite a plastic/small scale myself (actually, almost no modelbuilding left in my sparese time) but I am surprised at the precision of those smale-scale models. Jan
  6. And another welcome. There are some 1/350 builders active here in the forum. Enough to share experiences (btw Bach or something more modern?) Jan
  7. I tried to fi d some pics of the war-time planes that flew those missions to Norway. Didn't found them. however, while searching I did wonder: does the registration signs fit the time and type of plane? I could only find a couple of Spitfires of the 121th with AV marked on the fuselage. Jan
  8. Hi, Danny's work (both in wood and in paper) is fantastic, and inspired quite a lot of us. However, Danny will not read your praise, he died earlier this year. Jan
  9. Hi Doris, Your rigging looks absolutely wonderful. (do you make the rope yourself, or do you have a source for that?) The only thing I do not quite understand is the rigging of your top-rope: you used a sheeve rather high in foot of the topmast, I would have expected a sheeve somewhere further down the heel of the topmast (like in Andersons book pages 176/177). Rigging it through a lower sheeve would enable lifting the mast above the level of the cross trees. [edit, 10 sept]. And looking again, I realized that the set-up is exactly as in Anderson
  10. Hi Doris, Thanks for the update! Stunning quality as ever.... Jan Dirk
  11. Interesting to see that they rigged the lanyards 'upside down' in Kampen: the stopperknot is in the lower deadeye, not the upper one. Jan
