And start to adding ropes to the mast. Already There are backstays, 4 pairs of shrouds and spreadsail jackstay. I have also added the iron belts with eyes for blocks. Ropes are served in areas where interfere with mast.

Hi Peta,

Please can you or someone explain or preferably show how to remove this little boat from the jig.

Every build I have followed where one of these small Master Korabel boats are being built says exactly the same thing.

"Remove from jig", but nobody shows or explains how to do this.

I have built the MK0102 and almost destroyed my build trying to remove it from the jig.

I am about to build this one, and do not want to go through the same heart stopping procedure again.

Many thanks,

Tony

As you can see the jig is covered with foil and hull is not glued to the jig. Only the tops of the frames are glued to the jig. Once the hull is planked the tops of the frames are cut (I used razor saw) and the hull can be removed.

Thanks for that Peta.

Actually those instructions are pretty understandable.

Shouldn't be a problem.

Gentleman, to the sewing machines! My premiere with the sails (luckily the sails are pre-sawn in the kit with the Bolt rope in place and they are very nice). I just wanted bolt rope to correspond with other running rigging so I cut the original off and replaced it with my own rope. I also did not like the eyes on the original. I think I made it more real, I hope. 

Reef points: first row in place (I still need tu cut it to the lenght and shape it) but I have to say that I found something to be as annoying as ratlines! 🧐

I guess the only way to get it done is sit down and work! 2 more rows are waiting.

On the right is sail with kit bolt rope and eyes.

Cutting the reef points. This is a method I come up with. 

1.I copied the sail template several times

2. I cut the shape of the "reef line" out of the paper. 

3. I insert the template between sail and reef ropes so I can see the lenght and direction 

4. I fix the reef ropes straight in correct direction with the tape. 

5. Cover the ropes with diluted PVA glue and let it dry

6. Cut the ropes with exacto knife according to the template

 

It is little bit time consuming but accurate. Works quite well!

Nice work! One sometimes sees models with reef points pointing every which-way; folks either forget or don't realize that lengths of rope have weight -- they will tend to hang vertically.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build.
