Figuring out all the blocks and making them is a s...tload of work.
I am still working on the gun carriage blocks and that already takes hours.
But I must say I have never seen such beautiful and large variaty in blocks in a kit ever.
And this bow sprit, lovely. The amount of detail still amazes me.
If you have the info on all the blocks and the eyebolts around the main mast I am happy to hear them.
Now when I had attached the part up the front of the bowsprit that I thought was for a rope sling, I had got it
wrong and I had a attached the the part that goes just above the gamoning and has holes drilled through it for
the lead of the ropes, so I had to break it off and attach the smaller part that you see in this pic,
I was lucky that I had some of the ring parts left over from the rail details and I managed to sand one down to size,
I then drilled the holes for the ropes to go through and cut
off the lower half,
Me too, me too!
John, when you are done, I will be happy to arrange it all in nice structured digital way, helping you with computer stuff. I need it myself as I follow you guys, and of course I would love to re-use your findings and make it reusable for those who follow. Please use my help when needed.
As you noticed I stopped the actual production, but I can finally allocate my time on studying materials without panic. So, I am doing my research, translating the manual from Chinese, adding my stuff, and both your blogs are great help of course.
And, pity, I am slow now: I got funding for my business and I am busy 200% nowadays. This covid thing is a also a help in my case.
But I will be back, sooner or later! I miss you!
