Syren or Endeavour

Good evening all

I am well on my way to finishing my swift and i was wondering what to do next.

I do already have an AL hmb endeavour 1768, but i have been looking at all the rigging on it,

and i was wondering if i would be taking too much on for a 2nd build.

 

I have also been telling people over here about this Syren

 

http://www.hobbytools.com.au/model-shipways-us-brig-syren-1-64-scale.

 

 It looks to me to have about 50% less rigging. Would i be better off to get my rigging fingers trained, by doing this first.

All i really wanted for a 2nd build was to have something with a few cannons on.

Any other pros or cons to either ship?

All advice greatly appreciated Thanks Chris

 

PS  I am totally new to sailing ships, and sails, and rigging, and would need to start right at the beginning.

Don't let the sight of all that rigging put you off. Concentrate on one small area at a time rather than look at the whole thing & think where on earth do I start!. It makes more sense that way! Can I also recommend the Keith Julier book, "The New Model Shipbuilders Handbook" It has a chapter on building the Endeavour. All the best, Geoff

I will see if i can find the book over here. Thanks Chris
