I think what Radek is trying to say is that all you need to do is supply him the dimensions of the sails you need and he can make them for you in a custom order. I think you will find that his work and customer satisfaction is top level as is his reliability. 

 

His standard method of making custom sails is:

  1. You send him the sizes of the sails you want made'
  2. When he gets your information he will write the program required to make the sails and establish the price required for sewing.
  3. Then he will contact you with the cost and a PDF file that you can print out and test against your model or plans
  4. If all is OK you confirm that you are fine with the design.
  5. When the sails are made and ready for shipping he will send you photos and an invoice. He accepts PayPal or bank transfer.
  6. Upon receipt of payment he will ship you your sails.

The full process can take 4-6 weeks as it is a custom order and not one of his regular many sets of sails he already offers.

 

I am not affiliated or connected in with HisModel in any way. I just find him to be a very upstanding source for some of our modeling needs, sails in particular. The above information was obtained from him several months ago in regards to a set of sails I will be having him make for my currant build. In my opinion there is no way I could make finer sails even if I tried.

 

Hope this helps. Sometimes Radek struggles with his English a little, but it does not affect his honesty or skill level. 

  

 

 

After confirm that size of sails is OK I sewing sails.

When will a sails prepared for shipping I send to you photos of sails and invoice. Payment is possibility via Bank transfer or Paypal. After payment I will send it.

Complete process  will take about 4-6 weeks, because much orders.

This notion that you have to actually sew sails is false.in fact I usually advise against actual sewn seams due to the fact that the stitches are always grossly out of scale. If you think about the diameter of your running rigging-often represented by sewing thread on the model- then sail twine would have to be microscopic in order to be in scale with the running rigging. 

White Glue works fine on fabric.
