I recently got the "Scotland" 1/64 scale and discovered the deadliest and the blocks are really really REALLY small! I know I will need to drill out the holes for the rigging to go through the holes, even if I crazy glue the tips of the thread. So what I'm worried about is the drill bit cracking the item. What can I do to avoid this problem?
MAY 20TH THROUGH THE 24TH 2019 (MON-FRI) BlueJacket's rigging class is a popular event. We run it from 9 to 3 for 5 days (although some people leave early on Friday.) IT IS A CLASS FOR NOVICES. We don't assume you know anything about rigging a ship model. All tools and materials are provided with the class fee of $400. You get a hull to work on, all the sticks and dowels, the glue, blocks, deadeyes, threads, wire, beeswax, and the following tools: Excel hobby knife and blades Pin Vise Assortment of drill bits tweezers needle nose pliers
I just received a package of dead eyes from Syren Ship Models http://www.syrenshipmodelcompany.com/. Beautifully done and consistent throughout. Good work Chuck. Maury
Dear all, Until my build log is updated with the lost posts, I take the liberty to post here the first three dead eyes that will be used on the shrouds. I have two reasons to brag about, firstly the iron work is respectable (consideling the size, and second I achieved a good macro picture (my other long forgotten hobby)! In order to get an idea, each square on the mat is 1cm by 1 cm. Stelios
