At long last I finally finished issue 119 today and that was dressing the remainder of the spars including the adding of the footropes.... A very long session and am very pleased it's now done.....Cool Cool Issue 120 now started and here we get a rest from rigging, at least for the next two issues.... Progress on issue 120 will be posted soon so until then, happy building all.....Cool Cool

Hi there Alan!
Apologies for not getting back earlier! Computer's now fixed thank goodness, you don't half miss 'em when they're gone!BigGrin

Congratulations indeed on your Yellow! Really well deserved as your latest posts show! Lovely work on those spars with a very authentic 'weathered wood' look to them. I'm dreading all that to come on my Vic! It's either one of those tasks that you can relax and get into or one of the 'Oh God, not another one!'s LOL
A real masterpiece in the making M8, keep them coming!

Thanks Robin, appreciate the very kind comments and I agree, its a task you either love or hate. For me it was a case of loving it but at the same time found it a little tedious at times where perseverance paid dividends..... Thanks again.....Cool Cool Cool
