The boat has not been fixed in place as the oars have to be added first and I will not add those till the masts are done

The advice asked is should I leave the oars the hardwood natural colour or darken them using a maple stain.

Ship shown with oars & boat in place for reference. ( The kit does not use oars in position, but I added instead of closed vents for more detail

Great progress Paul, I would go with the stain on the oars, just to match them in with the rest of the ship and give a more 'finished' look to them.

Thank you all.

It's been a while, but I have a had a lot happen.

I stared a new Job two weeks ago after being 'restructured' 9 months ago, so its great to get back into the workforce. Hence the less time to model.

I also build a 3d printer and finally received My Emblaser 2 laser cutter, and the Admiral closed the dry dock as paving the side of the house is apparently more important, so I am becoming distracted and restricted to 1 hour a day at max.

Anyway, I have completed the masts and yards and my favorite task of rigging is about to begin.

The masts and yards are completely opposite to square rigs, with the mast being short and stocky and the yards consisting of two bound lenths.

The fore mast also leans significantly to the bow.

I will show the lean in a following post.

Ready for action

I can tell this is really going to be a nice masting and rigging setup.

Hi all

Its been a while but with my new job ( building & supporting Golf Simulators), playing with the new 3d printer and home duties, the ship yard has been vacant.

Anyway the first stage of rigging (is now complete). I must say this is a very different approach. The shrouds consist of 3 parts. An upper fixed pendant shroud which is lashed to the mast, a lower fixed shroud Becket and running shroud rigging in the center. The ti points on the deck plan are poorly marked and the shroud lengths are excessively long. If you follow the plans then they are long, but if you look at the photos they are shorter.

I guessed and made the lengths to what appear to be visually correct to me but who knows.

Here is the first stage.


The deck layout ( missing info of course)

The first rigging ( all visual sizes wrong)

Fist step create all the pendants and Beckets (each was bound and served) (Only 3 shown- 25 in total)
I used brown cotton on the brown rigging and raw on he raw rigging ( which was not supplied. They expected you to use .15 for the bekcts, but the pendants were .5. Luckly I had some .5 raw from other kits. It suits more than .15 on .15

Next was the creation of hook and u bracket from .5 brass wire.

This was then rigged to the bowsprit and up to the hull and over to the fore mast support.

The upper pendants were then added tot he masts and bound under and over to lock into place

The lower Becket were then tied and the running shrouds added. 3 for the fore mast, 4 for the main and 2 for the mizzen. The fore and mizzen Becket also have toggles fitted.

Great work Paul. I am contemplating my rigging at the moment and this is inspiring me for my Xebec.
