Ja Ja - Jep
Hello Greg, Thanks for your very kind words. Please say hello to your Admiral for us OK.G'day mate
I know what you mean.
The rats are my least favourite part of our hobby. Look at this post, and you may find it's easier and less boring.
I think Lawrence has given us all the golden method, to make I almost enjoyable.Hello Greg, I thank you very much for your visit, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Yes the rat lines a bit of a drag, over and over again. But in another day or so we will have all the lower ones tied. Regards Lawrenceshipsofscale.com
Hello Brian, Yes that is one way out, but then again you do not get that good feeling of accomplishment when you tie the last one.
Hello Uwe, Thanks, Yes that is for sure, and in building these model ships there are a lot of these less enjoyable tasks, but we survive.Ja Ja - Jep
there are some monotonous works, which can be like a spine in the skin......
gun tackles (if you have 100 to tackle)
I say every time to myself - everything will end once
If necessary make a break with the monotonous work of ratlines and make the masts or yard arms of another mast - and after some time you go back to the ratlines......
YOU WILL MAKE IT
GRIT YOUR TEETH
Hello Shipahoy, I thank you for your visit to my build log. Yes this is exactly what I do when tying Ratlines, I also tend to search the Great SOS Form after and between tying a few rows, making the task much more pleasant but it takes longer.don't mind rat lines, goes fast once you get in the groove. For me it's cannon tackle. built 1 heavy frigate with 30 plus guns, kept jumping over to other parts, but eventually you have to do them. i found doing 2 at a time kept the yuk factor down. think i will stick to cutters
Hello Ken S:, Thank you for your visit to my build log. I have never tried this method of sewing Ratlines, for this you would have to ask Brian, Good Luck. I would emagion it would be quite difficult to sew trough a server Shroud.must take a very small sewing needle?
Hi Lawrence,Hello Ken S:, Thank you for your visit to my build log. I have never tried this method of sewing Ratlines, for this you would have to ask Brian, Good Luck. I would emagion it would be quite difficult to sew trough a server Shroud.
I was having trouble controlling the free end of the ratline thread when tying clove hitches on the first shroud.
