    HMS Royal Caroline kit ZHL 1/30

    G'day Maarten There's a saying in Australia 'it is like closing the paddock gate after the horse has boltered'. Another words best to have it before that type of work. I love your extra eye for details, and as you said 'as the devil is in the details', I agree with you 100%. The only problem...

    Calculating Length of line for Total Seizing Length

    Nah. It was all mine idea. About 20 years ago, I was Helping my son to studying for a mathematics exam (l was also doing some rigging on a model) and we were disgusting 'π', and he said it had no use, so I worked out my first formula and showed him that it does have some use. I've been using...

    HMS Royal Caroline kit ZHL 1/30

    G'day Maarten I just had a thought about my build and how was I'm going to make the lantern on the mask to have a LED light. The problem is to run the wires without being seen. I think that I have came to correct answer to that problem. The photo below is a rope wire that can be run down to...

    HMS Royal Caroline kit ZHL 1/30

    I havta agree with you on this point. With every kit that I have built, I have never followed the instructions and order. The instructions are there for if I'm not too certain about something etc. My sons always tell me, you 'just follow your nose and you'll get there'. I think that they could...

    Calculating Length of line for Total Seizing Length

    It's simple... the same reason why a mountaineer climbs a mountain....because it's there. Seriously, I like to do the serving by hand, you get more control over the outcome, and when you want do do the end of a rope etc, it is easier by hand. There are many occasions that I need to know, how...

    Calculating Length of line for Total Seizing Length

    I haven't had a chance yet to do mine. But using your figures into me formula, I get: 563 mm So adjusting my formula to 80% (instead of 50%) of the seiving rope, I get 700mm. Thanks Donnie for that information. I'm going to try it with different size rope to check my formula.

    Calculating Length of line for Total Seizing Length

    I'll do the same thing here when I can, the temperature in the garage during the day is about 113°F or 45°C because of a heat wave we are experiencing. I might get a ball of twine and do a version in the house. I wouldn't like to waist good rope and twine would be easier to unwind to...
