One of the details I really liked was the way you coiled the ropes by the belaying pins. I just completed my first wooden ship H.M.B. Endeavour and looking back that was one detail that I will rob from you in my future builds. Thanks for the great ideas.
Regards
Mike

Hi Mike,
Thx again and feel free to borrow any thing you need, when doing the rope coils be sure to wet the line first, then do the loops, they will lay more naturally, once you got them where you want them give them a coat of diluted white glue to keep um there

Hi J, IF you wanted to put figures in/on your boat you can use the 28mm - 30mm Wargaming figures. Don't know if there are any naval figures but perhaps some could be modified. The guys that would have crewed the Picket, would they have worn a uniform?

Your welcome Mike...not sure when the next log will start...right now I'm devoting all my energy to cleaning and reorganizing my shop :sad: I've allowed it to get way out of control, hardly room to turn around with the mess

Hi Eric, good suggestion, I've some experience with modifying figures from back in my diorama days...as to uniforms, I believe they all would have, but how closely the uniform regulations were enforced is another issue. Could have been quite lax with this small a command, Lieutenant Cushing's report doesn't mention anything about the crew or their dress but a woodcut published at the time shows uniforms...
