Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

with the help of a few. Figured out that there a no parrell beads on the Fore yard(lower) but there are on others.  Not sure why... 

Here are a few picture of how I did . Right or wrong. I think it looks right and good

As the days just seem to roll in to one, weeks just don't end. Time has been great for building.

Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

Is anyone able to shed a little light on this?  Just cant understand whats being asked..

 

 

The Crossjack Yard:

 

The crossjack yard is held in place by a sling and a truss pendant.

 

The sling is rigged as per the fore main yard and is of 0.5mm black thread.

There is only one truss pendant, of 0.5mm black thread, for the crossjack which leads from the starboard side round the back of the mizzen mast, through an eye on the port side then down the port side of the mizzen mast towards the deck. A 3mm double block is tied into the end of the truss approximately 100mm from the deck. A 3mm single block is hooked to a copper eyelet on the deck (position shown on Plan Sheet 18), and the falls of 0.25mm natural are tied into the crown of the block at the same time. A tackle is formed between the two blocks and belays to the circular fife rail on the mizzen mast (b24).

2270 days ago on the 3rd April 2014 I started this adventure, not all this time was focused on constitution there was some mutiny causing build construction to halt.. 

But after a long drawn out debate work carried on finally she is here, with only minor outstanding (case )  waiting ..... im happy, 

 

I have fully enjoyed this journey, but it has taken every bit of effort, skill i could. 

 

But to everyone that has followed this build log, given much needed support & advice Thank you.

Congratulations! She looks very nice; I’m sure you’re quite proud of your effort (and you should be!). I like the little touch of the launch on the base.

Thank you Very much

 

Indeed I am. I did not want much to cover the Deck. So came up late with the plan for the launch  boats on the sides, and The Small Launch  on the base this afternoon  😅   and the large one on Deck can be moved

Thank you for the excellent rigging photos, i am about to start that journey. I made a lot of mistakes on the Caldercraft Victory construction.

and will spend more time  checking the excellent build logs on MSW, especially yours. I don't like mistakes.

I envy you guys who can actually see her.

Greetings all.

 

I thought I would make a follow up completion  post..

 

 

After a very hard long decision. Lack of space once the case arrived.. I had to sell and pass one the Victory.  I ENJOYED every single second spend building talking to every one here, the help & support.  I have convinced the wife for a new build  but at the moment  we/"I" have a  a size im only can go to. So the passion  for this hobby can continue..
