How much rigging


Recommended Posts

I hope to rig my Revel 1/96 USS Constitution. I purchased 120 feet of Syren rope in three sizes (.012, .018, and.035) in dark brown, light brown and tan to represent Revel's small, medium, and large callouts in their instructions. I never rigged a ship and do not have a clue as to weather 120 feet is adequate, Anyone haven suggestions? Thank you!

Yaymay, it depends on how much detail you want to include.


Suggest you skip the sails as those will double your work effort but not the amount of line.


I don't think 120' will be enough, though.  If I recall correctly, the Connie had 10 to 12 different sizes of line, and lots of it.  You could rig her with the 3 sizes.  As a general rule, use lighter line as you go higher up the masts.  The darker lines would be for the standing rigging, lighter for the running lines.
