  1. If the lower yard for either the fore or mainmast had to be lowered for repair or replacement, wouldn't a great deal of purchase be required to lift the yard back up the mast into position?
  2. Marcus, see the below link. This is great wire for stropping blocks. The only problem is that it only comes in 24 and 28 GA. https://www.dickblick.com/products/ook-dark-annealed-specialty-wire/?clickTracking=true&wmcp=pla&wmcid=items&wmckw=33418-1024&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-4j26sbp8wIVJGpvBB2EXgJrEAQYAyABEgI9S_D_BwE
  3. I wish ours were bare, we still have about 50% of the leaves left in the trees. We'll be racking and mulching till Thanksgiving if snow doesn't stop us first.
  4. Roger, nice detail on the subassembly. The hull is really starting to come together. Did you lose some fruit trees out back this year?
  5. Mark, don't know if you've seen the link below. I came across it last night doing research and thought it would interest you, http://navalwarcollegemuseum.blogspot.com/2014/04/artifact-spotlight-ship-model-of-uss.html
  6. Eberhard, everything is so beautifully executed but the forecastle decking is especially stunning and all at 1:160.
  7. Adam, I admire your determination. Keep up the good fight, you'll get there.
  8. Adam, welcome to MSW. Good to have you aboard and it's neat that you're discovered your passion for galleons.
  9. Lynn, if you have a small stiff brush (a toothbrush will kinda work though it's really not stiff enough) you'll want to occasionally clean the fiber build up between file's teeth so as not to impede the cutting process.
