The sails were dry.Purchased this color.for 2 days sheathed 6 sails BOLTROPE.There was only one Latin ,the largest.Then make the sail cringely,put them in the reef beckets and can be mounted on the yardarms. P.S. There was a mistake.In the previous post, I showed the guns for the Glory of Catherine.I got the wrong topic when posting.Maybe the moderator will move to the topic about the Glory of Catherine.IMG_20210103_204952.jpgIMG_20210103_205023.jpgIMG_20210103_205033.jpgIMG_20210103_205053.jpg

Looks like a lot of time hand-sewing the bolt ropes around the sails. Great patience and attention. Rich

Well, I completed the next stage.Equipped the mainmast with all 3 sails. The ropes just go nowhere.I don't have time to wind new ones.So far, I like everything.I express my sympathy to Dean62.He will only have to do this in his construction of Casador.IMG_20210114_223919.jpgIMG_20210114_223937.jpgIMG_20210114_223948.jpgIMG_20210114_224007.jpgIMG_20210114_224014.jpgIMG_20210114_224029.jpgIMG_20210114_224106.jpgIMG_20210114_224130.jpgIMG_20210114_224143.jpg

Are the foot ropes along and below the yards called "Hounds"? I am not sure but thinking about the crew out on those swaying foot ropes leaning over the yard and trying to claw up the hundreds of pounds of sail, more if wet) to secure them with the reefing lashings from windward inward and over to leeward is a mindboggling task that probably caused a falling death of many a tired or careless sailor. You have worked out a large maze of organized rigging and falls here. Tedious but appreciated work on you part for me. Rich (PT-2)

Perts on the yards for some reason are missing from the drawings.Neither Corel nor the new model from China.On other found images of shebek, they are where they are, where they are not.I will ask Russian modelers, maybe they will tell me this moment.0912.jpgChebec_Mistic-IMG_8860.jpgdasfvss.jpgwm_Chebec_genois_de_14_canons_en_1826.jpg

I think that I see those foot ropes drawn below the yard of the mainsail on the main mast with the supporting lines. Also possibly on the sail yard just above but those are only sagging ropes and not with the supporting lines. Rich

Very good work ......
In my opinion, these sail configuration of mixed lateen with square sails are looking every time very strange to me....
especially the lateen sail on your model is much higher than the main mast with the square sails.....
maybe also because the foremast is not so much inclined as usual when lateens are mounted - but I guess, this is the optical distortion in the first photo

All according to the drawing. The foremast has a slight tilt. The Latin sail has the same area as all straight sails.
