Rigging Conundrum Caldercraft H.M.S Supply


Recommended Posts

I am currently working on the Caldercraft Brig HMS Supply. I am starting to think about rigging and am not too pleased with the rigging plan supplied with the kit. It seems to have been `dumbed down' - maybe for beginners. Anyhow, I was thinking of using the plan from my model of the Brig 'Perseverance' as a guide - in conjunction with reference to Lennarth Peterssson's  `Rigging Period Ship Models.'  I know that rigging on all ships developed and changed over time but my concern/question is, would the rigging of the `Supply' in around 1788 have been much different than the `Perseverance' , in 1806. Any thoughts or input would be gratefully appreciated.
