I’ve found that the build instructions are sketchy at best. The sequence of the build seemed wrong and some steps were left out. It took a lot of head scratching and do-overs to get it built. Lots of mistakes on my part, but for my first foray into ship modeling I think I did pretty good.Nice job there Jan. I am always impressed when one is able to complete a Constructo kit. As of this date, I have given up on three of them that I have started. I just do not have much luck with them. But you have shown they are buildable and can turn out well. Like the long forceps as well. Keep up the great workmanship. I am not a fan of planking, but do enjoy all the rigging too.
I did make a couple of those, I’ve not quite mastered the technique of using them.
Hi Mate,Rigging continues:
Rainy day today, small storm moving through from the South. So I had an excuse to complete some more rigging.

In the process I found I needed another tool. I’ve been using fingernail clippers to cut finished lines but found that I can no longer get close to the final knots. A quick search of the internet led me to these.
