Cross Jack Yard

I've already made one a year ago, but looking on it now it's ugly. New one is from 4x4 pear strip. Job is pretty easy, but it took me some material to make one which didn't break

I've tried to make a more complex version with "faked" middle part and better edges. That didn't go so well. Maybe if material was thicker it would work, but it kept shaking and I couldn't make straight line

3.07.22 Update.

I've placed Cross-Jack yard, Mizen top sail yard and Mizzen topgalant. Only Mizzen yard and Spritsail-yard left to put. After finishing with yards only tackles and some back stays will be left to take care:). I also realised I need a smal ship to work on when I'm weary of repetitiveness in L'Ocean. Thus there's option for another heller ship:)

Another thing I've noticed. These pulleys look so funny compared to yards. Like big head with small bodyROTF. I knew it before that they were too big, but now when I looked through so many real ships it's soo wierd and funny

Placed mizzen yard only without brails for operating mizzen course.

It also shows my biggest mistakesa in this model- too dark decks and some poorly made(off hand) wooden elements

You made a very good job on the rigging of the bowsprit. Thumbsup

On the last photo I realized the total length of the mizzen yard, which is looking very long, maybe too long comparing with the contemporary drawing
