Great progress, love that kit!

 

Unfortunately the rigging for the ruder is not going to work! It should follow the green lines.

Hi Dirk,

 

thanks for your comment. Looking at your picture it is clear that the tiller has to move around the circle which the setup from the kit will not allow! I had this section in mind for a long time. I plan to re-do it anyways. Use iron hooks instead of strap on the tiller (so the tackle can be easily removed) and also I will look at the possibility to move the bulwark block more aft.

Adjustments of tiller tackles.

According to the scheme from Dirk I draw the lines to AVOS plans to see how much I need to move the bulwark double blocks. It turned out that not much which is great as it will not be in the way of latrine doors. I have take the tiller out of the model and made Iron belt with 2 eyes for tackle hooks

And the result (the coil will be replaced later)

It looks much cleaner then before.. IMG_20191015_160714.thumb.jpg.4c818f2f4409460584e9ddb0a69be2fd.jpgIMG_20191015_160744.thumb.jpg.ef27b85319e568a725105f0ab7db8684.jpg

Please pay attention, that the first variant was done in a way, mirrored from the one, presented in the drawings. You fastened the standing end not very close to the hilt. So obviously the fastening points on the bulwark have to be moved in this case. If done according to the drawings, no moving is required. Especially because the rudder rotation angle is not that great.

Hi, yes you are right. I did the mistake that the blocks on the tiller were fastened further from the end (that was the first version). I have corrected it and this is the final result (with hooks).

Thank you very much for all reactions! 

 

Preparation of the mast. It is carved from 6mm dovel. Not sure what kind of wood that is. Top mast, yards, boom, gaff are all in pear again. First  I was sad that the main mast is not also in pear but now I like the light color. It will look good with contrast of other pear items.

Top mast ready and full height reached! She is quite tall. Mast cap with Iron belt. There will be also 2 Iron belts on the mast head but I want place stays and shrouds first. 

Comparision with RC 1:48 (she is waiting for the rest of the rigging in the dock)

I for myself think the color of the mast does not fit the model but good YOU like it 🙂

 

cheers
