Continuing along very nicely indeed.

You are getting a very nice effect with your paintwork as well.

Hope it all continues well.

Thank you Tony - it's been a huge learning curve for me.

Regards,
Garth

6. Shrouds. Part 01

Onto the rigging. This is my favorite part of building model ships. BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Fitted the masts and bowsprit. I have not glued them in – the rigging will hold them in place.
The instructions suggest we start with Plan 2 (Stays), but all my literature suggests fitting shrouds first. So here goes…
I fitted the shrouds and back stays using the 0.8mm black thread for the lower parts of the mast (below the fighting tops) and 0.5mm thread for anything above that. I basically followed the Victory instructions. (HMSV Dual Pack 10 DL, Page 396)
I made a jig to using 0.8mm brass wire (left over from the Victory) Once the deadeyes were secure, I fitted the lanyards.
I did a basic tension to align the masts but will tension them again once the ratlines are installed. I’m not sure how to describe just how tight I tensioned the shrouds, basically tight enough to maintain their shape – but not as tight as to bend any of the mast unnaturally.

I did a Heath Robinson on the lashings this time round:
- position the deadeye and tie up the shroud with a loose half hitch to keep the end out of the way. The waxed thread maintains its shape well.
- Tie the thinner thread directly above the deadeye with a half hitch.
- Run some glue over the knot and up the shroud.
- Wrap 12 times and secure with another half hitch. I wrapped the upper shrouds with 8 wraps.
- Apply white glue to the entire wrapping & cut off ends when dry.

Hi All,
Just a small update today.
To make the catharpins, I tacked a piece of 2 x 1mm strip to the shrouds with superglue. I painted them black and lashed with some fine black thread.
Blackened the hooks provided and fitted the futtock shrouds according to the instructions.
I have only taken photos of the main mast, but the same applies to all the shrouds.
I also fitted the futtock staves, but unfortunately don’t have a pic of them

Kind regards,
Garth
