Thanks, Janos. I have been reading a lot and seeing how to do the rigging of the fancy parts on the different stays.
I have got the trim done on my house and need to paint the rest. Also, have a tri-plex that must be fixed up and so it can be sold this summer, but it needs a lot of work. Hopefully, I can get this organized and over shortly. Don't want this to take all summer, but I am a lot slower than when I was younger.

Gary, I just read your build of the Sovereign of the Seas, and i find it a beautifull build.
I am working on the Sovereign from DeAgostini, but your build is really nice to see.

Greetings, Peter

Looks great and respect for the patience of the rigging. Looks super clean!

Thanks everyone. It is summer and my house is over 40 years old. Have hand painted all the outside. Upgrading bathroom with new shower, toilet and flooring. Replace faucets in kitchen and other bath room. Still other house tasks that are keeping me busy and tired. Thus, no progress for a while.

Good to know, that you are well and „only“ busy with your tasks with your house. Crossing the fingers, that you can soon come back to your modeling....

Hi Gary, your model is looking fantastic!! Now that I have finished college I have two years worth of posts to catch up on.
Are you going to rig the ship with yards and sails and if so will the sails be furled or open?

Will rig the yards without sails. Have so many models I want to do that I deem more important. The Cutty Sark is next and I will probably rig with full sails set. Then onto the 74 inch Titanic that has wood decks that contain 10,000 planks. Then ZHL San Felipe in 1:50 scale and then the America Vespucchi. Since I will soon be 73, will have to live long to finish these that are already in the closet waiting.
