Mark, did you get the full size rigging plans with pack 12? I received pack 12 today and I got no full size plans. The download plans are no where near 1/1 scale.

Pack 12 - Stage 137



It has been a few weeks since my last update. I tend to get lost in the rigging process. I take my time, as sloppy lines can completely ruin the look of a finished model.

The stage starts with fitting the rest of the headrail decorations and painting them gold. The figurehead was also attached. The final 2 stern decorations were also mounted.

The lower shrouds of the main and mizzenmasts were rigged and the ratlines were rigged to the lower shrouds of all 3 masts.

That's all for now.
