    Rigging cannons without blocks

    I've seen then done this way also. I like using the blocks, but like Dave Mentioned getting the right block size for the carriage isn't easy sometimes. I usually use 3mm or 4mm doubles those are the smallest I can find

    My Heller 1/100th Victory

    Beautiful Build I love Heller kits I have only built the Planes, but they are always Highly detailed and accurate. I have built every WWII plane they produced in 1/72 scale. They were all built and given to my Best friends Father who was a Pilot in WWII he literally cried the day I gave them to him.

    Black Pearl By ZHL build

    Before I get to far ahead of myself I wanted to get the cannons started as they need to be placed and rigged before the masts are installed. So I'm now working in both there were no extras to rig cannons and I debated if I should or not, I decided to do it just because. I got to work tapering...
