I hope for you they will arrive soon. Then we can see the pictures of your solution. Always nice to see a personalized approach. AL as @Dean62 quotted.It could easily be the positioning of the slots and as the slots are in need of work anyway, it would be as well to make new ones clear of the scuppers...exactly what I was talking about with the things you would do differently a second time..but hey..it's a small thing. I am sure I will have bigger challenges in the rigging. I have made some slightly longer spreaders from 3mm dowel, and installed all the required eyes on the spars except for whenever the eye has a block attached. Whenever a block is shown attached to an eye at a spar I am mounting it with a binding to the spar rather than tied to an eyelet. Cant progress with that though until my blocks arrive from DrydockModels.
And I agree with you Peter, to agree with Henk to agree with Heinrich!...... Then I have to agree with Henk to agree with you, Heinrich, that indeed the red is really a nice color. ......
But John, thats for sure!
We’ll be here when you get back! Enjoy the sunshine!Thanks all of you for the encouragement, very much valued. it is winter here and we are about to go north looking for sunshine for a few months so it will all go on pause until late August. I will be missing it. Will just go fishing instead.
Aha, another BN is going into the air. Nice to see the growing of the masts with the clearcoat.Still doing a bit while our holiday accommodations decide whether we can come or not due to periodic outbreaks and shutdowns with the new highly transmittable Covid-19 virus strain.
Finished the masts and spars and fitted their boom jaws and parrels (only tied one side). If anyone knows what the metal hoops are all about would be interested to hear ..perhaps they represent steel hoops used to anchor some standing rigging given the enormous forces this rig would generate. I still have to do all the blocks which sit at spars awaiting from Zoltan. When they arrive I will be binding them around the spar and definitely not putting them on an eyelet. Some shots of spars to date without any resident blocks.
