Thank you, Lawrence, but I am not quite sure what details you mean.... I have a big box with left-over wood strips from which I pull out a piece every now and then.

Best regards,
Bernd

I also completed the gun port lids and started fitting them to the ship.
I deviated a little from the instructions by using eyebolts (the smallest eyebolts I could find)
for attaching the threads.


Hi Bernd!

Could you please tell me, where you found those small eyebolts?

Thank you,
Walter

Hi Benard

Thank you very much four your reply, what I ask for was how wide is the wood you ysed to make these fantastic decorations in your Post #71.


I especially like your DecorativElementsts on your trim. Is it possible for you to give me the with of the wood that you used to make these fantastic details.

Regards Lawrence

Hi, shipmates!

Some time has passed and although I was distracted by other things I could spend some time with my ship.
I assembled the stern laterns and glued them into position



Then I added the foresail, following exactly the instructions of the kit (cause I don't know any better).









The following view of the platform will soon be blocked by the fore topsail



Next, I fitted the mizzen sail



My self-made mizzen sail turned out to be too small. There is a huge gap between it's front edge and the mast:



I'm not quite happy with this. Indeed, I noticed, that after my treatment (sewing seams, attaching leechlines and reef-bands, dyeing with tea, etc.) my self-made sail has shrunk by about one centimeter (compared to the sail that I received with the kit and from which I took the measurements). But even that additional centimeter wouldn't make the gap much smaller. Does that mean that the mizzen sail of the kit is too short?

I am not sure if I made a big mistake and if I should make the sail again?
Anyway, the gap could not be closed completely - because of the catharpins there must be a gap of at least one and a half centimeters.
Considering this, I think I can live with this gap.

Best regards,
Bernd

Hi Bernd.

That's really looking spectacular! With regards to the Mizzen sail, rather than having to make a whole new sail, could you alter/re do the running rigging supporting the upper boom from which the sail hangs? If the rigging was lengthened slightly the boom would drop down and the sail could then reach the lower boom taking away the gap.
Might be still a lot of work but just an idea! Blink

Best of luck

Hello, shipmates, thanks for visiting!

Here are a few pictures of my progress.
With all the rigging in the way it gets increasingly difficult to tie the knots



It took me a week or so to complete the foremast







It's pure chaos on the main mast. And every sail adds additional ropes



Greetings from Austria,
Bernd

Although I'm a bit distracted by my professional life in the real world, I had occasion to complete more of the rigging recently. Now I start getting a feeling how the Victory would look once completed.





The weather was nice and hot and my Victory was allowed to spend some time in the garden to present herself to the eyes of the neighbours ...











But soon she had to return to the safe harbour, as one sail and lots of ropes are still missing.
