no worries Greg, if you ever see something that you think is not right or might be a problem along the line, let me know, I would rather check it now than find out later on,

best regards John.

Another view. I will not attach the figure head till later on so as not to damage it whilst turning the model around when working on it.

In my haste to to build the kit I made a mistake and glued the outboard end of the cat heads in place before cutting the slots for the sheaves


333.jpg
333.jpg (108.36 KiB) Viewed 99 times
So I had to cut them off, then using a .5mm blade I proceeded to cut the slots, I marked where I wanted to start and then I cut a slot in each, then I moved the fence a little and cut some more and I continued till the slots were as wide as I needed, then I finished them with a small file,
I could have used a wider blade but did'nt want them splitting out,

also due to the size of the sheaves I had to move the hole for the sheave wire to go through, or I would'nt have been able to get the ropes up over the sheaves.

Approx where the cat head will sit. I will blacken the sheaves and varnish the heads before final assembly.

G'day John
Another brilliant job or can I say 'save'.
:text-lol:
I would assume that if you didn't havta cut the lion head off , the axel for the pulley would be in the correct place.
;-)
OK mate, if I can see a possible boo boo from you, I will speak out. But I doubt it will ever happen!
:banana-rock:
Looking forward for your next update.
