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.

Dear Donnie
Many thanks for your help. I am afraid my modelling skills are nowhere near your standard but your help is in valuable.

Quiero agradecer sinceramente a cada uno de ustedes por ayudarme en el camino para completar este gran proyecto (al menos para mí lo fue). Fueron 5 años y medio en la fabricación.
También quiero decir "gracias" por todas las amables palabras. ¡Aunque, creo que algunos de ustedes solo están tratando de ser amables! :) Les aseguro a todos que hay muchos otros grandes modelos de barcos construidos aquí y en otros foros a los que tengo que quitarme el sombrero y asombrarme. Es a todos ustedes a quienes alentó y educó sobre qué hacer y qué no hacer.
He estado tan ocupado en el trabajo que no he podido hacer pasatiempos en casa desde abril de 2014. Finalmente tuve un descanso durante las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias (vacaciones en los Estados Unidos) para disfrutar de un tiempo libre.
Sé de varios que ahora están tomando este modelo con MUCHO más entusiasmo y MUCHO más talento e ingenio que yo para agregar toques adicionales que simplemente no tenía la previsión o los recursos para obtener el extra que algunos de ustedes tienen.
En cualquier caso, presento a todos mis mejores amigos de modelaje aquí en este foro, mi logro, en la medida en que solo puedo decir que hice lo mejor que pude con lo que tenía. Debo agregar que mi corazón está con el nuevo modelador que viene, que a menudo está lleno de emoción y luego consternado cuando se dan cuenta de que las instrucciones son a menudo muy deslucidas.
Si OcCre solo lee esto, tome nota: tome nota de sus placas de aparejo y revíselas y piense en el modelador por una vez.
No estoy seguro de lo que será mi próximo proyecto, pero estoy seguro de lo que reduciré un par de puntos en dificultad.

Sinceramente

Increíble las maravillas realizadas y las fotos tan apasionantes e instructivas que hace, un placer ser miembro de este apasionante foro de maestros[/QUOTE]
I want to sincerely thank each one of you for helping me along the way to complete this huge project (at least for me it was). It was 5 1/2 years in the making.
I also want to say "thank you" very much for all the kind words. Even though, I think some of you are just trying to be nice !!! :) I assure you all that there are many other great model ships built here and on other forums that I have to take my hat off to and stand in awe of. It is all of you that I have taken my encouragement from and being educated on what to do and what not to do.
I have been so busy at work that I have not been able to do any hobbies at home since around April 2014. I finally had a break during the Thanksgiving Holidays (USA Holiday) to enjoy some time off.
I know of several that are now taking on this model with MUCH more enthusiasm and MUCH more talent and ingeniousness than me to add extra touches that I just either did not have the foresight or the resources to go thru the extra as some of you have.
At any rate, I present all of my best modeling friends here on this forum my accomplishment to the extent that I can only say that I did my best with what I had. I must add that my heart goes out to the new coming modeler that is often filled with excitement and then dismayed when they realize that the instructions are most often very much lackluster.

If OcCre just so happens to read this, take note: Please take note of your rigging plates and please revise them and think about the modeler for one time.

Re: OcCre Santisima Trinidad Build Log

This view shows how I use a simple method of bending the two planks preparing them for placement as the Garboard Plank. You will notice the hard twist in near the middle. This view show that even though the instruction do not mention anything at all about fairing the stern, I decided to do so. It will allow for planking to fit better and to be able to sand it down to a better finish.

Hello My Name is Ray,I have been looking at your build, I have just begun this build myself and im at this point I bought this model on ebay and think I didn't get all the instructions, because at this stage there is no info on where to trim the with of the planking. Can you help me with that im at a stop until I can get this info. Thank you.
