The rigging is coming along now - finally completed the various stays - and have now found my new hate....wrapping thread around belaying pins!!

Wow,Cool Love Cool

They may be the bits your not keen on, but credit where its due for your persistence its looking good.

Bite the bullet and crack on, when you come out the other side you can say "I done all of that" and soak up the praise you will deserve.

Hi Betty!

She's looking fantastic and well done you!Cool Cool Cool
Have a look at Post 364 on Page 19 of my Upgrading the DelPrado Victory diary - there's a sneaky way to get the look of tied belaying pins without actually tying them!BigGrin

Well done again!

Thanks Robin, I will take a look at that.

Today happiness came in attaching the fore sail....even if it has taken all day to do!

I have finally allowed myself to think about which ship I will tackle next....I have the complete builds for Sovereign of the Sea, Soleil Royale and the Vasa to choose from!

And the sail rigging continues.....just about to start the main mast work. It makes you appreciate all the work that would have gone into rigging the actual Victory!

A really nice job there BoatBetty.
Is it the angle of the camera or is the foremast leaning forward a little?

That's very good news. I know I seem to check mine every day to see if they are out of alignment.
