Thanks broadside. I appreciate your passion for the subject. After reading your’s and other’s post I am leaning toward blue, as you did. I understand you not sharing your professional techniques. I am curious if you can answer one question for me, and if you can’t, as I said, I understand. It appears in your pictures of your 1/144 scale Wasa that you did not use the kit provided molded deadeyes to attach the shrouds to the chain plate. The molded plastic ones in the kit are so tiny I can’t imagine what size (mm) deadeyes you had to use and the precision needed to rig them and the lanyards.
