hey there bud!  pretty good soldering on those collars!  sorry to hear of your problem......glad though that it hasn't stopped you for very long.  for your mast dilemma,  look up other like ships.......even pictures can give you ideas.  I'm not up on this brand of model,  but I do have the Billing's Bluenose plans.       I'll give them a look over.........cross trees and spreaders.......you should also have caps for the tops of the mast sections.  do taper the topmost section,  but the first and second sections,  you can get away without,  unless you need to fit parts,  like the caps


I looked at the Billings plans,  but they don't show what I want to see.......I know I have another sheet somewhere.  I did find some pictures for you to see

Hence I was doing the masts I took a look at my Hull and found a big mistake  Hi put some eyel on the top rail over the chainplates and thay are  epoxy them in place  Those were the wrong things to put in there so to get them out I used my really nice soldering iron heated up the eyes and pulled them right out they came out with ease is that happen to some one els this is what u can do to fix it
