John Allen Posted June 9, 2015 Share #1 Posted June 9, 2015 With everyone's help especially GDALE who I plagiarized a lot if that term can be used beyond the written word, I have began the masts, spars, and bowsprit. Brief background this was an e bay purchase by my daughter for a b'day. It looked all there, but looks can be deceiving. The 2 plastic containers had several cuts on the top bad sign. The decks were warped as well as the assembly for the stern castle. It was like building a house where the foundation was not square, but was able to correct all and plow on. I have had to order wood 3 times all the 1x1 or 1x2 and all limewood. Still all good got by that. My current dilemma is when constructing the bowsprit I noticed the only rings were for the anchors, when looking further this build takes a lot of rings different sizes. I looked on-line and cannot purchase all I need at 1 place and afraid I will have to make all. I do have a lot of brass wire of different gauges. It will be tedious. Any 1 site where I can buy the different sizes I need. Shouldn't these have been included in the kit. Another goody any instructions end at this point love Italian cuisine but there kits and instructions leave a lot to be desired. Feels like it is beginning to take on water and the pumps are worn out.(Now I will get off the pity potty) Thanks for any input. JA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
