I have found from past builds that completing the sails and mounting them to the yards is necessary to make sure that the mast measurements are correct. Measuring the lower mast as needed to set the lower full sail. I do the same moving up to the tops. I have found that the sails often do not set correctly to the sheet measurements. I adjust as needed and and proceed to glue the masts together. IMG_0018.JPG IMG_0538.JPG IMG_0014.JPG IMG_0535.JPG

Hi Dave

Sails look very nice.
Are they the kit sails or did you make them your self.

I am continuing on the final planking on deck. I am starting to build and shape the yards. I continue to hand sew the bolt rope to the sails and stain black. I competed all the dead eye placement on the hull. IMG_0015 (1).JPG IMG_0016.JPG IMG_0006 (2).JPG IMG_0008.JPG IMG_0005 (3).JPG

For Christmas Santa brought me my next project. I am going to build the 1:54 scale Endeavour form OcCre. I will use the basic kit and Anatomy of a ship Endeavor book to add more detail. The exciting part for me this time I will also build the 1:143 scale mini kit of Endeavour from Mamoli. I will attempt to add as much detail as I add to the larger ship to the mini kit. It will employ almost all scratch building in a small scale I've never done before. IMG_0010 (1).JPG IMG_0013 (1).JPG IMG_0014 (1).JPG
