Thunder dis you put eyelets on deck around the masts? Rigging drawing shows them but deck plan does not...

You'll definitely need them.

 

I put the exact number in shown and had a few that went unused.

Hi, yes i put eyebolts around the base of both masts and kevels on the masts as well. I found that i ended up doubling up on he foremast. The bitts by rights should also have sheave holes through them and the bits in front of the fore mast belaying points. I also ended up doubling up rigging belays on the knight head timbers for the bowsprit rigging belays. I did end up with a lot of spare belaying pins on the racks between the gunports at the main mast.

Hi,

 

The caldercraft instructions are to use natural thread but then to colour them black with black indian ink. The reason being is that it is far less stressful on the eyes to rig the natural thread. Just be very careful when using the ink. You get little black dots everywhere if not careful.

Final photographs. Just a few minor tidy ups to do so as far as here is concerned this build is complete. Base board for stand made out of an offcut from when i did my skirting boards. Brass plaque was from Engraving World

Congrants Thunder! Really good you. You have been my Mentor with Cruiser build.

I will probably ask politely some more pictures from specific places of your ship to help with rigging. Bowsprit is really unclear for me as info is on multible drawings. Also little afraid or running rigging for yards.

Only just realised that I did not follow this last year - and now it's finished.  Lovely job and interesting to see her "nude" that is, un-painted.  Just had a pleasant 20 min scrolling through while I waited for a phone call.  Great work.
