fantastic job.
One question: how do you finish the knots of the cabuyeria? With cyanoacrylate? no stain or color change is seen.

Ohhh man. I finally caught up with your entire log and this is all impressive. Excellent craftsmanship and very precise work!

 

If I could ask, how do you learn this kind of rigging? The Amati Drakkar kit I want to build does not have a fraction of this much rigging involved and the Pandora seems like a real challenge. Is rigging skill picked up overtime as your build more models and following provided instructions or are there additional resources for modelers to read up on to do all of this?

Thank you guys for all comments and likes. I am very happy because number of followers reached 100:champagne-popping-smiley-emotic.

To druxey: I have tried the metod of making ropes you describe, but the result was not good for me. If you unwind the thread and rewind it left handed before spinning resulting rope is not the same quality as the ropes without unwinding (my opinion). From this reason I decided to make the left handed ropes.

To cabrapente: I dont undestand the word " cabuyeria ", but all knots are fixed with diluted white PVA glue.

To Ryzuhr: Most information is taken form Anatomy of the ship PANDORA book. But this book does not include the all necessary information so I use the following books for addition:

James Lees - The masting and rigging of english ships of war

David Antscherl The fully framed model, rigging a sixth rate sloop of 1767-1780

Klaus Schrage - Rundhloelzer, Tauwerk und Segel.

So and now some new pictures - installation of topsails.

Awesome, thank you! I will keep a look out for these to add to the library. I appreciate the information!
