Das war ein Vorschlag eines Modellbaufreundes; ich werde das aber so nicht weiterverfolgen. Diese einzelnen Webleinen sind noch nicht festgemacht. Ab den nächsten Wanten werde ich normal von unten nach oben arbeiten.
Today was a holiday in the state where I live. The weather was murky and gray - best conditions for a long stay in my small shipyard.
On the starboard side of the mizzen mast now all rat-lines are attached. It still works better, but I am very satisfied with today's result.
Well, then go on here. It will not be long before the Mizzen mast is ready. The template is very helpful. But important is a healthy sense of proportion.
Jimmy is off today, but his friend Ricky wanted to test the new rat-lines.
His buddy Allan took the starboard side and climbed on the top.
The yard has now closed a few days. Tomorrow I drive a little further away. I do not only build ship models, I also like to listen to metal music. And tomorrow I'm at the Slayer concert. They're on their farewell tour - I can not miss that! "Anthrax" is also there, and "Lamb of God" and "Obituary".
So if these bands know someone here ...
I know: My ears will be glowing!
But if the guns of my Mercury were fired earlier, that was certainly louder ...
I second Uwe, not my favorite part of ship modeling. However, without rigging the model is kinda 'naked' and if it is not an admiralty stile - looks unfinished (IMHO). Your rigging job looks fantastic!
