  1. Hello, here is the continuation of making the block strops for the guide blocks of the foremast top.
  2. @Dowmer @FriedClams Hello, thanks for your positive comments and all the others for the LIKES. The foremast top also requires various guide blocks. These are attached to the underside, as can be seen in the first picture. Quelle: Musée de la Marine Paris – La Crèole The small blocks of around 3.5 mm in length are only indicated by the sheaves. The large blocks, as seen in the picture for example, I equip with brass sheaves. For making the block strops I will serve ropes with a diameter of 0.35 mm. More about that soon.
  3. Hello, first of all, I would like to thank you for the positive reaction and of course for the many LIKES. As can be seen in the following picture, the last eye for attaching the last ratlines of the futtock shrouds of the foremast has just been spliced directly on model. This gives me cause to deal with the execution of the shrouds of the topmasts and subsequently with the corresponding ratlines. Some time ago I dealt intensively with the diameters of the ropes for the ratlines. In this respect I may refer to the corresponding passages in my construction repor
  4. Hello, here is the continuation for the futtock shrouds of the foremast. The futtock shrouds are temporarily attached so that corrections can still be made.
  5. Hello, between the holidays I was able to spend more time on model building. Unfortunately there is nothing spectacular and new to report: Continued: Ratlines - Enfléchures The last ratlines knots on the port side lower shrouds of the foremast have been set. Now all lower shrouds of La Créole are equipped with ratlines. The preparations for the missing futtock shrouds on the foremast are already in progress. I am currently making the corresponding rigging elements.
  6. Many thanks for the nice comments and the LIKES. I would also like to thank you for your loyalty and interest in my construction report for the past year and hope that you will pay attention to my report again in the new year. I wish you all a happy new year and above all good health.
  7. Today I would like to present my new video on the standing rigging of the La Créole. This is the continuation of video part 1, which I also show again below. Part 2 LINK Part 1 LINK I hope you enjoy it and wish you a Merry Christmas.
  8. Hello, after a short break, I'm continuing with the ratlines on the port side of the foremast shrouds.
  9. The ratlines of the formast shrouds have been completed in the meantime, as can be seen on the following pictures.
  10. @Dowmer Hello, thank you very much for your positive comment. Also for the many LIKES I would like to thank you all very much. Four years have passed again !
  11. @Jorge Dias O Fhank you very much for your positive remark. The opening for the rope ladder is already visible.
  12. At the moment I am dealing with the ratlines of the foremast. The first picture shows a section of the shrouds of the main mast.
