Thanks Hoffy, welp the glue kept it from rolling around and I couldn’t see it through my endoscope so had to improvise. Will be in OZ in October.Wow mate you have progressed very nice build so a cannon rolling around the bilge somewhere I must make a note to self when I install my guns,keep up the build log cheers.
On Facebook the ZHL page, some of the pictures show it with one level some with two levels. Don’t know which one might be an earlier version.I just noticed your mizzen deck has two levels mine did'nt might have to go back and check my manual,maybe too late to add it now.
I had thought about recoil ropes and though it is not off the table I’m not sure that I will add them. The rigging alone is going to be a big challenge for me.Given mine is the 2019 version I guess mine is ok as is well that's what going with, I see you have no gun rigging as yet but placed cannon balls is this the finished state or have you not yet decided? I have recoil ropes on my guns wasthinking about block and tackle also not decided yet as the locks will need to be small and deck could get to clutter.
Thanks Hoffy, I am going to have them unfurled. I still have some safety wire from when I was a jet engine mechanic that I am going to sew into the sails so that it looks like the sails have caught the wind.Looking great Jay, are you having the sails furled or un-furled.
Good points Kkonrath and worth a try. Ha ha, your dots have been connected, USAF, Crew Chief, OKC and Tinker.Another way to make sails look like they are in the wind is to mount on the mast, cover with thinned white glue and clip wires to hold bottom corners and set in front of fan to dry in the breeze, I have seen other builder who showed this and sails looked good. You can try a test first to get the feel and see what mix works best. I would think easier than sewing safety wire into the sails.
P.S. I know about safety wire all to well as old retired Crew Chief in USAF.
