Breeching lines are the lines that secure the gun carriages to the bulkheads so they do not roll around the gun deck as the ship is underway. A loose gun, weighing several tons, is very dangerous on a rolling deck and hard and dangerous to get under control and secured. In english it is the source of the phrase, " a loose cannon" when referring to a hazradous situation....or persom, as in '"He's a loose cannon".Once more thank you for the nice comments and likes!
Hi @11320 Titanic , the sailors on board were not included in the kit. Some are part of the d'Agostini company's kit of HMS Victory. They are in 1/86th scale, but that is not noticeable at that scale. Other figures I bought individually on the Internet. Then there is a figure set from the company HÄT, English sailors in 1:72.
Unfortunately, I do not know how to answer the question about the breeching lines (?). I know very little English, use the tool DeepL to translate and am not sure what exactly you want to know, sorry. But maybe someone from the users who know German as well as English can help me?
What a beautiful job. If you didn't know this was a model, you would think it was a pic of the real thing! Awesome build!!!
