Thanks for al your help Dirk. How do you get that line so tight on the mouse? With my efforts it wants to slip off the mouse because the surface is so smooth. And do you just turn a single thread around? Or do you weave it also?

I did not weaved I faked that ... hehe. It's served with CA glued. And you need to serve veeeery slowly from the steeper side. Use CA!

Lost track a bit do you still have a warped keel bit ??

Its almost impossible to straighten an MDF one  - ply is juuust possible but not worth the effort.

You are owed a replacement   - ask for it from your supplier

Where are you - in the UK and most countries the supplier is responsible NOT the manufacturer

Yes I did not start with the kit yet. I live in the Netherlands but purchased the kit at Cornwall Model Boats. If that is the case like you said then I 

will send an email to CMB for a replacement. Thanks for tuning in! :)

Small update...installed the Fore gaff, main gaff and driver boom. There is a lot more to learn regarding rigging...like which knots etc. But that takes time I guess. Nice to discover which line is for what part to move or hold still.

As usual.... Pristine work mugje. 

What did you use for colouring the ratlines?

I diluted some black paint, that worked fine. The only difference with the indian ink is...that diluted paint dries somewhat hard up. And with the ink the line keep more flexibel.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

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. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
