Pack 11 - Stage 126


The man and leaf decorations were fitted to the port and starboard side galleries along with the bottom decorations.

The large stern decoration was glued in place.

I built up the 4 counter timber decorations with left over hull planking strips then shaped them to match the curve of the transom.

The gun port lids were finished with eyepins and 3mm rings then fitted in place to the stern gun ports.

This completes the stage.

Pack 11`- Stage 127


This short stage consists of cutting 6 eyepins to 2mm length. small holes were drilled in the marked locations on the transom and rudder. The eyepins were fitted into the holes and glued in place.

After the glue dried, a length of chain was attached to the eyepins with 3mm rings.

This completes the stage and Pack 11.

Really looking forward to the next pack. I love mast assembly and rigging.

Pack 12 - Stage 128


Starting the final pack. This will be my favorite part of the build. Fitting the Masts and rigging.

Stage 128 starts by building the 3 lamps for the stern.

Using eyepins, the oar locks on the 2 launches are fabricated. The launches were then glued to the boat rack built earlier. the rack was then fitted to the main deck.

Stage Complete.

Pack 12 - Stage 131


The foremast was cut to length and shaped to the plan. The foretop and trees wre assembled and ribs added.

The rubbing paunch and cheeks were added to the mast. Eight bindings were added to the mast. The bibs and foretop were fitted to the mast.

The deck guns were assembled and glued to the deck. The gun rigging was then added.

TIP: Instead of gluing the eyepins for the gun rigging to the bulwalks first, I find it easier to tie the rigging to the eyepins FIRST then gluing them to the ship.

Stage Complete

So with the next stage, the fun begins! The rigging.

There is something about all the lines and sheets that just bring a tall ship model to life.

I'm sharing a photo of my favorite rigging tools. Hope someone finds these common items useful.
