  1. Hi MSW, I have a couple of questions regarding the false stays used to attach the staysails to on my Leopard of 1790. I would like to put the main and mizzen staysails on the model. Not sure if I will furl some (probably) but anyway. I have attached a picture of a piece of my standing rigging plan to help illustrate. As the plan shows, the main top mast staysail rides on the fixed and permanent top mast stay preventer. Being permanent standing rigging this would be a tarred rope. Since the hanks will be sliding up and down this rope should that working length be served?
  2. Over the last few months, I have worked through a very challenging task of creating a set of files that cover the rigging of the Royal William. They include text, diagrams and photos arranged in a sequential order of rigging. They are freely available for anybody who wishes to make use of them and it is my fervent desire that they will add to the joy of creating this mighty ship. Having said that, there is still some work to be done on these files to fully complete them. Hopefully, the MSW members will 'jump in' and make this a real community effort through a range of ideas, suggestions and cr
  3. Good morning everyone. Finally I am progressing with my current project, HMS Liverpool circa 1778, 1:96. I have made the lower masts and bowsprit and I am now putting riggind attachment points on each. Now ther question: I've checked Steel, Lee's, and David A's Swan Class to verify attachment of the Fore stay, Fore Preveter Stay and Bowsprit shrouds. Swan class show a heart (open in the case of the Fore Stay. Steel says either or, while Lee's also shows either or. Although Liverpool was built in 1757, she was rebuilt twice. Also, twenty years latter, I'm sure that her rig was updated.
  4. I’m a big fan of the Constrictor Knot. It’s a very useful knot for fixing a line to a spar such as in the case of a stay or backstay attaching to a topgallant masthead on small models or on lighter lines on larger models. Its got a low profile and its easy to tie and when tightened it constricts as advertised. Clifford Ashley apparently invented it and its number 1249 in his book. It’s also mentioned in the original Ship Modelers Shop Notes in a Merritt Edson essay on page 187. Unfortunately the illustration included in Shop Notes tends to make the knot look difficult to tie. In fact most desc
