Hi alle. Its a long time ago since in posted someting here. Ik had to move to a new house. And du to That my healt problems became worse. Building onze 3 boats now. The trinidad.
On top wilhelm zu pferde andere below trinidad. Will post victory soon bussy with the sails.
Tnx all. Doing the sails and wires onze the Victory causes aan lot of painin neck and head. So this goes very slow. Trinidad was birthday present and the wilhelm was bought verry cheap. So in coulnd this one go. Its normal 840 euro ande i bought it for 150. But its a difficult one. Only drawings andere advertenties lot to find out yourself without picture book.
Good video, it is always interesting to see how others do it. The ratlines themselves look really good. The distance between the ratlines is way out of scale, but he also said this. What I mean would create even better looking ratlines is using cow hitches on the first and last shrouds so the ends of the ratlines would point inwards rather than outwards.
Hallo @Pat71 ,
I fully agree here with Willy. To leave them in brass looks nice (for some people), but is not realistic. They were black, dark gray or most a dark bronze color....
Take a look at @didit ´s topic related to "looking at cannons" https://www.shipsofscale.com/sosforums/index.php?threads/looking-at-cannons.1937/
Painting or blackening / brunisseur is the way you should do.
For blackening there are aloready fixed finished stuff like "Blacken-It" or "brass black" etc. available.
