Rigging sizes and where to buy

Recommended Posts

I can't help on sizes... but for buying, there's a bunch of companies listed on the main page as sponsors.  Ages of Sail, Syren Model Ship Company, Blue Jacket and Model Expo for starters.  Some of the others might have line, but I don't know for certain.   Google "model ship rigging line buy" (without the quotes and you'll get hits.

I've recently got back into this hobby and just ordered some rigging from Chuck's Syren Ship Model Company. The quality of the line looks great. My current build is 3/16 scale, and I purchased line of .035, .025, .018, .012 and .008inches. I figured that would approximate any size line from 7 1/2"c to less than 2"c.
