Thanks for the comments nightwisher Cool the colours are totally bonkers and at a distance the red and yellow on the roof looks pinky/ orange Confused a bit strange but she must have looked stunning in real life Cool

BigGrin Hi all Cool
A bit more done on the Vasa Cool
The ratlines on the lower shrouds have been completed and the upper ones started with one side finished and the other side half done. To break up the tying of the ratlines I have removed the pinrails and drilled the rails to take the belay pins as per the real ship. I also noticed that the beakhead was missing the two dolphins so used some of the left over ply from the carriers of the bulkheads to make them, see I never throw anything away lol Cool . Looking at the rake of the shrouds on the main mast I am planning to fit the main yard as it will be a bit difficult to rigg with them in the way but that's a way ahead yet Cool
Cheers for following

BigGrin thanks for the feedback guys Cool
The main yard has been fitted as their would not be a lot of room to rigg it with the shrouds in the way. I have made two more rams head blocks as the first two where a bit big and out of scale.
The halyard rope was passed through the top of the block then up through the sleeves on the main mast and tied to the main yard. The block was then rigged to the knightshead . The parrels where then made up and fitted to the yard .
The shrouds where fitted with the dead eyes and tied in pairs as per the real ship . Looking at the Vasa 1 book I noticed a strange looking block just above the mizzenmast chainwhales. This turns out to be a fixed block that controls the sheets of the bottom of the mainsail. Most ships in the 16 hundreds had a loose block that would hit the side of the hull by fitting a captive block this stops this happening ,very clever so I made some up out of some spare stock wood.I have also changed the look of the blocks supplied as they look to square so I have filled the edges to give them a more rounded shape .
I have started putting on the ratlines and have discovered that I haven't got enough dark brown thread to complete them and was just wondering if I am missing a roll of brown thread as I only got one ? . So I think I will have to order more Blink
Thanks for following

More amazing work Martyn, I really like the idea of rounding the corners of the blocks much more realistic. I also like to stain mine a darker shade to make them look older Cool

Confused Thanks Alan . I thought it was only one . The only trouble is there not enough to do all the ratlines which is a bit strange. Might have to have a word with CS to see if they can send me some Confused

Blushing It now seems I have used the wrong thread for the ratlines Blushing Blink Blushing my fault. The thread was mistakenly marked as .5 but was .25 in stage 2 . Hayho I will order some more silly me BigGrin . I must admit the thinner stuff looks better BigGrin .
