I was given a model of the Santa Maria for my birthday recently, having gone over the plans and part list I've found a bit I have never heard of...Parrel Ribs. These are small metallic pieces with 3 holes in them, they appear to be used on the parrel holding the yards to the mast but I'm not sure how they fit, I know my description is a bit vague, but it's kinda hard to describe, but I'm sure someone on here will know about them.
cheers
Come on you Jimmies

Thanks Karl, nice build, what kit was that? mine is the A/L it's amazing how each different kit maker makes them slightly different, you then question some of the historical accuracy of even the Victory build, and is is even worth really bothering about accuracy if you build it straight from the box? as long as you end up with something that you are proud of
Come on you Jimmies
