Every day something to learn....... many thanks to MatiHi Stephan,
This element is called shroud truck
View attachment 225942
It's used to arrange running rigging in order to relevant belaying pin.
For example: buntline, leechline or brace.
Look at rope no 84 or 104.
Please have a look also on below photos from Batavia plans from Batavia Werf.

I hope it's clear now
Not sure why it's on all shrouds... but in Batavia plans not all of them are in use... or just rope in not on the drawing.
Thanks Uwek. I recognized the picture out of Steels book.Every day something to learn....... many thanks to Mati

you're welcome. I like to share the things I do. And still learning and approve myself. And I like to make everything by myself. I could ordered these deadeyes by a shop where I still have credit. But this is more fun.Well Steef, thanks anyway for inviting us into your workshop and letting us see your model ship making qualities.
Stephan,Started all over again.
The first blocks I made are more like the block they come on the lift of the yards.
The new one

Please give me criticism when I make such blocks in the first place who look more like a willy then a block to hoist heavy stuff
