A realy impressive model of an impressive ship. Great rigging work, very realistic, f.e. Especially with showing the sails stored. It is looking very good.
@ corasgate: handling such a big model as your first try in shipmodelling sounds very enthusiastic.....crossing the fingers that it is working,,,,,,BTW: a warm welcome to our forum

Sorry to be a simpleton but I am building the Occre Santisima Trinidad section and I have been trying to see how the rigging was done. I see you have posted a YouTube video of the rigging on your model but I don't know how to access it. Any hints please.

Re: OcCre Santisima Trinidad Build Log

I think I might have found a combination that looks ok to me. I am using an Oil Pastel by Prang Sketcho "Oil Pastel Crayons" This is the dark brown color applied to only one side of the Planks. Then I put a small amount of Satin Polyurethane.

Hi Donnie, yes I used some Conte hard Pastel for the same effect, it worked quite well, only thing was using pencil still gibes a slightly thinner line for the false caulking, not an easy call to make I think.
