The work continues, the shrouds are a lot of repetition work which can be a bit mind numbing. I’m working on the lower levels of all masts, this way I can break off and do other tasks like porthole covers

Interesting approach that you use a jig for this.
How do you ensure that the ratlines are parallel and aligned to the waterline once fitted ?

In all honesty it’s almost impossible for me to do it in situ, so I do the best I can. I’m wheelchair bound because of a spinal injury while serving. I’m a registered war pensioner with 80% disability so I adapt where I can.

Hello Ikecurran, have gone through your build log just now and am taken aback reading about your injury. This is a beautiful model built and truly amazing skills used here considering your situation. Please continue and finish the model as I want to see this beautiful ship complete.

Have a wonderful afternoon and warm wishes from Mombasa, Kenya.

This is my final post of Mary Rose, I have enjoyed the build and the investigating of the true boat. It’s far from perfect and I could have done better but I’ll post the final pictures and draw the build to an end
