Hallo Janos,
there is a new book available, which could be very interesting for you, also for the finishing of the rigging

Sovereign of the Seas, 1637:
A Reconstruction of the Most Powerful Warship of its Day

by John McKay (Autor)

View attachment 141201


Hi Uwe
a bit late for me in the current state of my SoS (or should I start from scratch again?) Where is this book available?
Regards:
Janos

Just about to finish the Le Soleil Royal stern model (still waiting for the delivery of a Chicago screw) and the back to Sovereign - as planned, after a year break with her. And I have to finish the Barcelona galley figure head as well (will post a few pictures soon) - I am just expecting the deliveryof the Mixtion according to Willi's advice. In the main time I was agonising whether or not building Sovereign's masts and yards any further (having the stud mast option) but I went back to the original idea and will finish her with masts and rigging (but no sails of course). So, watch this space.

Bravo on deciding to build complete masts on your Sovereign! Thumbsup :D A ship hull without at least masts, if not sails too, looks incomplete or... wrecked. Having the yards lowered and sails stored below lets everyone see all the deck work you did, as well as all that beautiful carving on the hull. I can't wait to see the final result!
