  1. Hi. I have just receved my order of modellng rope. Pleased with the products and service. A few photos says more then a string of text so here are the photos. That' the best with the focus I can get on the camera. www.modellbau-takelgarn.de is the trader I got it from. I have no connection with the above business/Trader. Just someone selling a quality product. It's A lot better than I can made it 🙄 Regards Antony.
  2. I think kit supply gratings are not correct in size, scale and ratio. What should be the thickness of the wooden part and the size of the hole on the gratings in the real world for a period ship? What is the ratio to each other? Are there any changes during centuries? (esp. for a ship scale 1/40 year 1600-1700) I don't think that is regular, it's impossible to walk on it...
  3. Ok, here goes. This is my first model and it's not going to be pretty so I apologise in advance for my butchery of this fine starter kit. There will be blood (I must use round nosed scissors), sweat and tears along the way. Hopefully not too much blood.

The unit of measure was standardized across the board with the introduction and acceptance of the metric system in 1799. (no surprise to me) Many countries were using the foot (and inch) as their unit of measure but the actual distance that comprised a foot differed between various countries. (again no surprise to me) What surprised me was to learn that the English foot (12
  5. I'm planing for the future to build a sloop in scale 1:48, and for armament I will have 10 6-pound cannons, unless convinced otherwise It's probably going to be 18-1850. I would like to scratch-build the ship, and of course also the cannons. I have done some research, but have not been able to find the measurements of a 6-pound naval cannon, and part of this is probably because I don't know enough on the subject. So the question is, what are the measurements of a 6-pound naval cannon around 1800? For those who can read this, here is what I came up with, but I had to use very
