  1. Hi Popeye, Incredible... I take a break, then I see a new and beautiful ship when I re-enter the site ... Your productivity is unbelievable... Fine work as always...
  2. Hi, Thank you for the nice comment. For the frame, I used the strips that I cut from a credit or similar card. I don't know from which material the credit card is made, I just used it because it was easily accessible. The thickness is ideal and uniform. It takes shape very easily in hot air with hair dryer and keeps its shape when cooled. I provided the semicircular form by wrapping it around a pencil and giving it hot air then waiting for it to cool. I made decorations by glued some small pieces. Very strong when glued with CA... Then I painted the whole frame in gold wi
  3. Hi, Nowadays I work on lantern. I want to learn how the lanterns had been illuminated in 1600's... Candles or oil lamps or... ?
  4. Hi Dirk, Excellent as always, The rigging of the buoy is different. Do the orange ropes not have to pass under the surrounding rope like the opposite side? I just want to learn if there are many way to rig the buoy. The photos are from La Créole 1827 by archjofo - Scale 1/48 - French corvette.
  5. Thank you for your comments and "likes"... Finally, the process of fixing the blocks to the yards is over. It's now on the queue sewing sails... No stage is easy...
  6. Thank you very much for all this information, guiding illustrations and your interest...
  7. Thank you Allan and popeye2sea, I am referring to the Frigate Berlin 1674. I thought that to fix a yard to a mast that holds a sail inflated by a strong wind to drive a heavy ship at sea is case important. Is its halyard enough to do this? Will I make a mistake if I add parrels to topsails yards? Or have I to follow the kit plan...
  8. Hi, Please let me know which yards have to be fitted to the masts by parrels... At my kit plan only main, fore, lateen and spritsail yards have parrels... There aren't any parrels on topsail, topgallant and bowsprit yards... I want to know if the kit plan is accurate... Thank you...
  9. Hi Michael, It had been written as size, 10 mm and 6 mm. Do those sizes belong to parrel beads or spacers? I need this info because I am looking for them of 2 mm of diameter. And are they wooden spacers? Thank you...
  10. In fact, I do not believe in the historical accuracy of many kits. Except for scratch builds, it's a separate category. Even in a popular ship like Wasa, where the original exists today, where there are examples in the museum, different companies produce different Wasa kits. So if you decided to go with the kit, in my opinion it is enough to get close to the historical accuracy without waiting for it to match entirely...
