Working on blocks, different sizes, for different yards... a bit of serial production.

I used a bit of CA glue to freeze the block and now rope is slightly stiff; need to massage it so it will fit around the yard..

154a.thumb.jpg.6de5c099c12d6e99099f7b4bd9e49b83.jpg


A foot rope is also installed; slightly different approach this time. First i made an eye...
 

146.thumb.jpg.3bd5ca46c88cf1a72d1b306893071e3a.jpg

Cut it with extra length...
 
147.thumb.jpg.63dec02ba497602682d2cbebbccb7368.jpg


then drag the main rope line thru with a help from this fancy tool...

The the lines were tight to the yard in appropriate length..

I will adjust foot rope to look a bit more realistic...

Happy modelling...

The ship cradle, once turned up side down, serves as a good, small table for tasks that require precision and patience.. this is part of making a knot on the other side of the line..

Making few 0.3mm ropes, using crochet lines and Golden oak stain. I usually cut the lines in 1mm length, deep one line at a time in the stain and pull it out, at the time i drop the whole line in the stain. This prevents a line to stay in the stain for too long. This allows me to somehow control the beige colour shade of the lines.. then let it dry for a day...

181.thumb.jpg.bcf14eca25895067adf9512b552c8238.jpg


It is time to bring the model back on the table...
 

181a.thumb.jpg.36ca3522a95172daa34146d0fb34df48.jpg


... and to replace the plan
 

182.thumb.jpg.3b3ee5e41de73d9557302ded9b6ce024.jpg


All sails appears to be done..
 

183.thumb.jpg.e6fd94cbb5232ffa4fd046faca0ea7fa.jpg


Work will start on a jib by making a holes for rings.. and making 7 rings in 3mm diameter. The rings are blackened and polished before mounted on the sail..
 

184.thumb.jpg.a819ad3ed90e974501cf56f8e300d6a1.jpg


Then the sail is attached ...
 

186.thumb.jpg.0d3c5553f74d5a3e4b3878a43a8675b7.jpg


 

185.thumb.jpg.1c994db313d26050dca3c2473e802b82.jpg


Then a tack cringle is attached to the parrel using a simple square knot. Next, the halyard is attached to the head of the sail..
 

188.thumb.jpg.d271bedd6909c317eae514be2f809668.jpg


... and it will be tight to the cleat using a 3.5 mm block with an iron hook..

Continue with rigging...
 

256.thumb.jpg.3f813fad786c26c83509e16cd7bebdaa.jpg

257.thumb.jpg.7f54ac702c8bbd1f4569542bbda36ad4.jpg



A little helper to assist with keeping the same distance for both blocks..
 

258.thumb.jpg.e64a600a3f754d16008bfbed9ab7b59e.jpg

261.thumb.jpg.b6ff5892563dfe586791c6f803a1cb5e.jpg



and the other side...
 

262.thumb.jpg.468e14d133b20f83cc15d2c0404559c7.jpg



Some random shots of blocks and rigging details.. if someone is interested in following one rigging line specifically, let me know and i will provide few pictures...

 

263.thumb.jpg.63c05c115000c8a87a03226a1b0382a9.jpg



From sailor' perspective...

From bird' perspective... hopefully bird is not fully fed.

266.thumb.jpg.0ceae5dcaa2c6c275daff703dd22bb2a.jpg



While i was rigging this block, i rigged the wrong block, the one further on the left. All line was completed, ended in the third pin but had to do one more time, again. Practice makes it perfect..

During the work, one line was damaged and needed replacement..
 

290.thumb.jpg.62329edfbdda1ceff4122d2b49b7fc5d.jpg


 

292.thumb.jpg.aede92a56e26da01c02b5117f0e84a61.jpg


 

291.thumb.jpg.91a7268b325c93319f71d6f3ae2391bb.jpg



It was replaced and all is good again...

I also removed the ship boat as i will be adding few more details to it...
 

294.thumb.jpg.4e1716ce43faf8c8b505cf5c7e8fe35f.jpg



Which in turn, leaves a bit more space for work..
 

293.thumb.jpg.3ee62317d2d608a9e08f2663448dbeab.jpg



Another parral to build...
 

295.thumb.jpg.9c0fea94ee30212e319ac7b5d0c62494.jpg



 

298.thumb.jpg.ab2e95947830f59489abbd8631200da6.jpg

296.thumb.jpg.d14efc048386dbe89607f36fda715553.jpg



And continue with the sail... keeping it up with a small cloth pin...
 

300.thumb.jpg.c95130672b204822ca43543cafd25eca.jpg


 

301.thumb.jpg.2d3b67eb143201fbd03e048958c7716e.jpg


 

302.thumb.jpg.582a2e82beed56bc0b86fb4de5443908.jpg



Then i had to rearrange and reposition some ropes correctly.. a bit of diluted white glue to keep the ends straight and some weight till glue dries...

Making few blocks with a hook... first, wrapped a wire around the block, added a rope on the opposite end off the hook, twist the wire and make a hook. Then, siezing the rope and freeze it with a glue. The whole block was dropped in blackening solution. With seizing the rope and freeze it first, the blackening solution will no "blackened" the rope, because the glue will prevent solution going into the rope. It is not a bid deal if seizing is done after blackening, just rope has to be pulled a bit more so the blackened rope is removed...

Rigging the sprit-sail yard is next. First, the block was rigged and attached to the yard..

329.thumb.jpg.ec3274206174fcd614ed12aa66a8fb06.jpg



... the rope was pulled thru...

Few more other ropes were attached...
 

331.thumb.jpg.d7f646f5d5a2e4a6edece14b63a77b79.jpg



Getting crowded up here...

335.thumb.jpg.e2e902e4f19d42d63c6c1abea94b5e33.jpg



... and ended up on pin. I put a small amount of white glue to freeze the knot... when is dry, less visible than CA glue.

Did not quite like the way how all rope tail end ended up around belaying pins.. It is working just fine but the end results were not quite there so i decided to add a line coils... A bit of a different approach was also involved since i already cut all ropes to a length, so for me to lay the tail ends as they supposed to be, properly, coiled around the pins, was out of the question...
 

401.thumb.jpg.1fe3ac51592de22a16291a818854531b.jpg



First i a line coils factory... the flora craft foam was used as a foundation because of its sharp edges, and well, spongy structure, not hard to push all those small pins... The baking paper was used to prevent glue from sticking on the foam. To create a line coil diameter as close to the original pins diameter, i cut a 2mm wire into 1cm long "pins" and push into the foam.. The distance from the edge was measured from the pin location on the ship and hanging part was also measured to provide a nice look at the end...
 

402.thumb.jpg.c61191228d28751d6bf07cdfa059834e.jpg



And started to run lines around it...
 

403.thumb.jpg.e85732b4a6cb8e7d0fa1e3f3472c6ed7.jpg


 

404.thumb.jpg.c407ca429df7571bfb16499765abd288.jpg


 

405.thumb.jpg.83fa5242d263b560ffef191b9f91c4e8.jpg


 

406.thumb.jpg.b9de1cf84d373e79e519c80f54b75729.jpg



A drop of white glue was put in each line coil to keep the shape and they were left to dry overnight..
 

407.thumb.jpg.6f772919f338dfdec2af12536507a7d0.jpg



End the results were OK..
 

408.thumb.jpg.34d33feed08039b45445e752ce29fc3d.jpg


 

409.thumb.jpg.5b300b66e181b94b47a3d29eacb2424e.jpg


 

410.thumb.jpg.0c276e70a41a6494ec89e2e626533856.jpg



A drop of diluted white glue was also applied on the final product..
 

410a.thumb.jpg.bfee0efe758f4df85540e01454ef3f62.jpg



There are definitely other ways of doing this exercise and the best way will be to do the line coils on the ship directly, but this scale is fairly small for my fingers... Maybe next time..

Happy modelling..

I have tried a slightly different approach now... wanted to try starting the work from the pin, first tightening the rope around the pin and work towards the yards.. this will give me a bit more workspace and it might ended up better and more realistic.. So lets see...

The rope was ran thru...
 

411.thumb.jpg.6876de0085b3d09388452ed0adf4a4e3.jpg


.. the knot was tight around the pin...
 

412.thumb.jpg.0e78c4f54f097a4ba9066887f2c1804c.jpg


 

413.thumb.jpg.c2977d4fc4b78ed416a72c641f046dcd.jpg

.. a bit of a CA was dropped to make sure the knot will stay in place.. Then the coil was attached, again with a help of a CA...
 
414.thumb.jpg.c1595cce19ca265605a1de9735ff372d.jpg


The rope looks a bit fuzzy on zoomed picture but it was dragged thru a beeswax and from the naked eye it does look OK.

So far it does look more realistic this way.. and easier to install... Then, the rope was running thru a block and attached to the sprit-sail yard..
 

415.thumb.jpg.2c5fe03228560f9f88e42274ccdb9d58.jpg

417.thumb.jpg.bcf2d95ab28aead69bff43237ca1395c.jpg

Hmm, it does not look that bad after all... Will try few more times..

Happy modelling..

Continue with different bowlines rigging... if there is an interest in how a specific rigging line is running, i can snap more detailed pictures...

For rigging line colour and size i was following the kit plan.... all lines are dragged thru a beeswax to lower the fuzziness on them but zoomed pictures are as bad as they are good...
