question for the group


Recommended Posts

Have a question for the group...

I am looking at building either the Rattlesnake or the Niagara kit.

Of the two, which is the most difficult when it comes to the rigging?

I have experience in build wooden ship kits, with some experience with rigging

(primarily on 1/96 Revell Constitution kit )

I have been following both the Niagara and Rattlesnake builds...

Any and all responses welcome...

If you're looking at rigging complexity, the Rattlesnake has 3 masts, the Niagara has 2. I suspect the Niagara would be easier to rig.


Also, running rigging is simplified if you don't have sails. An interesting trade in complexity would be Niagara with sails vs. Rattlesnake without.


Hope that helps,
