  1. Cheers Jason. May I ask you, finally have you worked the yards from top down or the opposite? Thanks Stergios
  2. So sad to realize that I have'nt place those jeers blocks in advance... Once again so dissapointed with the plans of the model and the company in general
  3. Hi guys. I have accomplished the bowsprit mast and the relative fittings. Pictures to follow… Shifting now to the last session, the yards. Thinking to go with the main (lower) yard of the fore-mast. What’s the best option to start with? Dry-fixing the yard on the mast (using the predrilled yard hole and relative mast pin) as my 1st step? Something else from your experience? Thank you
  4. Now it’s quite visible from you photo, Jason. Many thanks for replying se promptly!
  5. Now i’m seeing a starboard (only) hole, probably for the 1mm stay..
  6. Hi again Jason and thank you for the comment. Finally I'm seeing that I need to prepare one (or maybe two ?) additional lines for the topmast stay and preventer stay despite the fact that the plans show only one single line (no mouse, nothing to help... ) ... According to Petersson one mouse is needed for each stay and probably the "classic" procedure by "serving" the ropes... * I dont know whether you have any different opinion. * The point I can't understand till now is the way we attach and tie those lines on the bowsprit mast... Ani idea? Thank you
  7. Hello to everyone. Just a couple of pics from my recent stages. I have finished the rigging of the bowstring mast [some details in need of touch up for later].. Next and final step: the yards. I'll start from the foremast working upwards on each consecutive mast. I've left for later only the ropes of fore and fore top-mast stay and preventer stay, just to have a better working-space for the fore mast yard. If you believe I go wrong, I'll be glad to see your comments. Cheers
  8. I have finished all the bowsprit-mast fittings and the bowsprit rigging in general. Now I'm ready to permanently fix the whole bowsprit on the ship and deal with the gammoning. Next stop the yards and the relative rigging, starting with the stays of the foremast to the bowsprit etc. Thank you
  9. When you're between two of similar object loves, trying to not neglect the other...
  10. Took the decision to leave the yards as the last act of the model. Nowdays I'm working on the bowsprit fittings...
  11. Hi Jason, hi guys, all those years I think you know my "turtle" speeds... Actually after so many months i started again and I'm working on the bowsprit rigging. Thank you. Some pics to follow.....
