  1. Hello, I got a little further again. I have now finished the ratlines at the Foremast The next task were all the backstay's on the foremast And finally all the stay's. So the foremast with the standing rigging is almost finished Now I will finally fix the standing rigging Then I will start with the main mast. Cheers Helli
  2. Hello, We have the same fate. The victory is my first ship. It's a big challenge. But you grow with the tasks. And when I look at your work like that, I can only take my hat off to this perfection. Helli
  3. Hello, Now I have finished the shrouds on the fore mast. For a change I started with the ratlines. Cheers Helli
  4. Hello, Of course I have been following your construction report since the beginning. There were also a lot of things I took over.👍 It would be a pleasure for me if you would take over some of my ideas. The rigging is already a difficult task. After I removed the old one like it was so smeared with glue, I am making very slow progress. The most important thing for me is not to use any glue at all. But this is not so easy as it is a very tricky job. You always have to sew the thread back. Sometimes you need several different needles and especially four hands.☺️ But it's fun a
  5. Hello, Congratulations! A wonderful model. Will now probably get a place of honour! Helli
  6. Hello, For the shrouds on the mast I use a simple takling and for the deadeyes I use a seizing I can recommend two books. In my opinion, these are great works I hope I helped you with that. Helli
  7. Hello, Great!!! I will definitely follow up on the report. I'm looking forward to it. Helli
  8. Hello, Now I have a small update again. I have now finished the futtock stave and the futtock shrouds on the foremast. I decided to use the alternative method according to the book "The Anatomy of Nelson's Ship". Then I continued with the fore topmast shrouds. I made myself a helpstay so that I can adjust the tension of the shrouds before the shrouds are ready. It is quite tedious and progresses only slowly. But I'll keep you posted on the progress.
  9. Hello, First of all, thanks for the likes and comments. Clearway No actually it did not hurt because I did not like the result. Of course it's not perfect now either. When I see other projects here in the forum I can only marvel and try to orientate myself on this level. But in the end I must like the result. I think if I want to build scale, such a project is primarily about building and then the result should be as you imagine it. Helli
  10. Hello, Again a little further. I've got all the stays in place. Here fore preventer stay and fore stay with snaking Here main preventer stay and main stay with snaking And here mizzen stay Helli
  11. Hi, Now i am finished with the shrouds at the lower masts. I have mounted an auxiliary stay, because otherwise the mast would be pulled too much backwards when setting the shrouds. This would have the consequence that when the stay is mounted the front shrouds would be looser than the rear ones and when the deadeyes are tightened the deadeyes would be at different heights. Cheers Helli
  12. Hello, Got a little further now. I think it was right to remove the old rigging. Compared to the new one. Now I make all shrouds on the lower masts and then I work my way up. I will report further. Helli
  13. Hello, Will gladly follow the construction report Helli
  14. Hello, Now I have finished rigging the bowsprit. I left all the ropes open so that I can tighten everything at the end. With the shrouds I have now also started. I made the wooden rail so that I can get the deadeye all in one height. I have seen it in a forum and find it a very good idea. So that's it again. Helli
  15. Hi, After i was satisfied with the samples i began with the new rigging. The first work i do was served the shrouds The lashings are complete without glue. Then i rigged the bowsprit and made the foot rope on the spritsail yard That's all for now. I will report on progress Helli
