Tnx all. Doing the sails and wires onze the Victory causes aan lot of painin neck and head. So this goes very slow. Trinidad was birthday present and the wilhelm was bought verry cheap. So in coulnd this one go. Its normal 840 euro ande i bought it for 150. But its a difficult one. Only drawings andere advertenties lot to find out yourself without picture book.

I guess you mean the shrouts and ratlines?

We had this video already a short ime ago, but I could not find the location at SOS, so here the good video showing the way to make the ratlines


Important is, to put a white paper behind, so you can see and recognize the lines easier.
Hope this is helping.....

Good video, it is always interesting to see how others do it. The ratlines themselves look really good. The distance between the ratlines is way out of scale, but he also said this. What I mean would create even better looking ratlines is using cow hitches on the first and last shrouds so the ends of the ratlines would point inwards rather than outwards.

Still looking for aan quicker and less painfull way. Ik have reumatism and worn neck so making these knots causses aan lot of headaches for 2 days. Some glue to fix the the wires instead of knots?

I cant decide if i should maken the cannons black organisatie leave them as they are. The brass color. Anyone sugestions? Think black is more natural.

I think that in black would be better Pat
do you want to paint them in black or do you want to use chemical stuff?

Hallo @Pat71 ,
I fully agree here with Willy. To leave them in brass looks nice (for some people), but is not realistic. They were black, dark gray or most a dark bronze color....
Take a look at @didit ´s topic related to "looking at cannons"
https://www.shipsofscale.com/sosforums/index.php?threads/looking-at-cannons.1937/
Painting or blackening / brunisseur is the way you should do.
For blackening there are aloready fixed finished stuff like "Blacken-It" or "brass black" etc. available.

Hi Patrick,

You can cast them from resin ( giethars ) with this you can create very detailed results.
