Continue working on lower yards, installing halliards, braces, top sail sheets and lifts.

The small amount of diluted white glue was applied with a brush to all ropes to keep them tight.

To make ropes straight, yards were pushed down with a help of a small clamps.












Several rope hanks were created to finish up ropes that will be attached to cleaves. I used small template for this task,




End results..

Well, that it is, last stretch of this beautiful small model

Small setup used to make vangs. The vangs were rigged with .020 mm rigging line, a 2.5mm single blocks was seized on one end of the line. The tackle was seized on the same size block, that has a small hook in it. The hook was made of 28 gauge wire that was blackened. The hook was attached to the eye bolt on the deck.




Then i worked on flags. Following practicum, the flags were printed and glued together. Then i made two small holes on the edges and wrapped the flag around wooden dowel to provide a bit of a natural look. Did not go too far since paper does not accept wrapping mistakes that good..

The swivel guns were also mounted on the ship.

Apologies for clatter in the background, the final pictures will be better.










Next started to work on pedestal.... still contemplating about the shape and this is just beginning.

The molding was completed, now the ship name has to be made and attached.



The pedestal was designed, the plan was glued to the board, and parts were cut.



After some sanding, the pedestal was completed and tiny layer of golden oak stain was applied.

Well, that's about it. The building journey called Sultana has been completed. Started on March 2018, with long break, completed in February 2020.

Plenty of modified parts, ropes, third-party wood pieces, scratch build details, custom metal parts have been applied to the model.

Following Chuck's practicum and other modellers' build logs, Sultana reached the finished state. At the beginning i started to count modeling hours but gave up after approximately 40 hrs... It is still a hobby after all..
The model is very nice, not for beginners dough, regardless of the solid hood. By replacing the cheap ship details like gratings with some, CNC made parts, i believe this model will be a bit more desirable.

I don't like the pedestal, it appears to be a bit cumbersome so in the future will replace it. Already had a holes made in the keel for the new one.

At the end, would like to thank all builders on this great forum for building ideas, all other Sultana build logs and all members who followed my building adventure.

So, here they are, the final pictures...

Finish a model means also often having the next in mind or already started....... What is your next project?
Hope to see also such interesting building log here.....

Thank you.

Most likely the next one will be Brigantine "Phoenix" by Master Korabel.
Just need to clean up the shipyard, this is best time to do so and will soon start. Few more rainy holiday days are perfect for a new building adventure..

Cheers
