  1. Chuck: Blocks.. blocks.. blocks.. There are options out there regarding making rope yourself or buying from other sources, but good blocks are a rare commodity. And if I have to beg.. I have no shame! 🙂 Mike Draper Whitehorse, Yukon -32c and getting colder
  2. Everyone: Its been a while since I have posted progress shots...mainly because I have been working on the launches which has been maddingly slow work and I have also been waiting for my sails to be made by my good friend Wendy. Well, the sails have arrived and Im keen to get started on the final stage of rigging my Agamemnon. Its been a very long haul but its great to now be ready to start the final chapter. I will keep everyone posted as they get rigged to the Agamemnon. Enjoy MIKE
  3. Chuck: Thanks! Actually when I starting making the paper templates for the sails I was a bit surprised how big the sails were. I actually double checked my measurements to make sure. I suspect if anyone wanted to full rig the Winchelsea with sails she would leave quite a impression as well! I will be posting some pics as soon as I can get some sails rigged on her. Im stoked.. its been a long time getting to this point MIKE
  4. At least its not as bad as rigging ratlines.. needless to say Im not upset that the Winnie project is not fully rigged. MIKE
  5. Chuck: I am close.... sooo close... Here is a pic of the paper templates that I made for the sails that I am planning to rig on my Agamemnon. The sails are made by a good friend of mine Wendy Thompson and are on their way to my mail box. I figure I have my time off from XMAS is spoken for with rigging these sails when they arrive. Everything else is done (except for some flags!) so as soon as the sails arrive its full steam ahead.. And.. no.. I have been working on this ship way tooo long.. Need to get it on the "don" pile.. and start on the Winnie... MIKE
  6. Chuck: I have looked under each of the subject headings in that section and still cant find the freizes.. do you which know which heading? I did find them under this subject heading but I dont think they are scaled for the Winnie.. unless ya download the JPEG and then play with them until they fit.. Sorry for being a pain.. just want to make sure I get the right image. Mike Draper
  7. Everyone: Quick question.. I have already hardcopied the friezes for the stern gallery and along the hull but I want to redo them on better quality paper. But for the life of me I cant find the images that I need to download and print. Does anyone have a quick link I can use? Im getting ready to start the Winnie as I am now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on my Agamemnon. 🙂 Mike Draper
  8. And another plank on bulkhead or plank on frame? (I do apologize for all of the questions but its a interesting project!) Mike Draper
  9. Chris: Great choice. I agree on your strategy of bringing new classes of ships into the kit development fold. She has beautiful lines. I assume she will be fully rigged? Mike Draper
  10. Congrats Chris on the new pre-release! I know there has been a lot of interest in this kit.. I noticed you mentioned you are working on the Sphinx. Is there any pics or drawings of her lines? Google searches have me all over the map on which ship you are looking to develop. Again.. congrats on the new release Mike Draper
  11. There phone number is 514-973-7741 or email at rick@shousha-inc.com. a friend of mine bought his Caldercraft Agamemnon kit from him.. the nice thing is that he is located in Canada so no customs headaches. Mike Draper
