Thanks guys!

Unfortunately i ran out of 4mm deadeyes as many of them came damaged - so i couldn`t finish the backstays for now.

While waiting for new ones i attached the ships lanterns.

Also i prepared the Stern for the rigging lines of the mizzen.

As you can see on the pics i changed the positioning of the blocks and added some cleats to look more like the real ship!

Thanks Alan and Gray!

The new deadeyes i ordered were crap - it`s kind of hard to find 4mm deadeyes in Austria or Germany - there are only 5mm and 3,5mm ones!

Started a new try via ebay!

So in the meantime i finished the rigging of the mizzen.

Hi Walter,
A stunning example of Victory and if mine will end up to be a quarter as good as yours and I will be very happy.
Congratulations and look forward to more photos of the finishing stages.
