This really is one of the most incredible builds I've ever seen Steve. Quick question, did you use a rigging jig for the rat lines?

Thanks for stopping by Garth & Ponty, appreciate itBigGrin

William, no jig was used for the ratlines, just as per the mag instructions, I did use a small homemade tool for attaching the shrouds though and have some info on it here - http://forum.model-space...aspx?g=posts&t=9532


Will be back on this build asap, just need to find some room for it before I start putting the yards onBigGrin

A belated thankyou for looking to Mick and MarcLaugh

Well now, where was I...BigGrin

Dusted the old girl off yesterday with the airbrush, very handy for cleaning without the risk of breaking anything.

It turns out I was at issue 105 which was to fit the first yard on the fore mast.

This involved tying on the 2 jeers and the sling then making the parrel bead strap.
The yard was attached to the triple blocks under fore top and "hoisted" up into position. Then the parrel strap was tied around the mast.

The jeers were then terminated at the posts of the fore pinrail.

That's it, yard in position - may try to get the rest of this yard fully rigged tomorrowBigGrin

Just a sequence of pics for an idea of where I'm at now - the first pic was taken yesterday after the dust offLaugh

Apologies for the bad lighting on some of the pics, it was getting late this evening and the lighting in our house is useless and I couldnt get it under my lampBigGrin.

Thanks for looking, nice to be back on this oneBigGrin

Not a very exciting update but a lot of work since last time, all the yards on the fore mast are done and fully rigged including braces and lifts.

There was also some more rigging to do on the mizzen boom. The pics below show the current state in no particular order, getting hard to show whats been done as it's difficult to take pics of the rigging itself.

More soon

Steve

Thankyou for all the comments BigGrin

Just the mizzen yards left to rig now, added the 2 bowsprit spars and all the mainmast yards.
The lower main yard braces cant be added until after the mizzen is rigged.

I originally put the lower foremast yard on back to front (in previous post) this has now been rectifiedBigGrin I knew which way it was supposed to go on, then went and put it on backwards and did all the rigging too before I realizedAngry

Here's where I am today anyway (issue 112)
