Thanks guysSmile

Just a quick one as I got my lighting sorted for the cut-away section.

Leaving the lighting installation as an afterthought - or more like "shouldn't be too much of an issue to fit it later" - turned out to be very silly mistake...

Glueing the LEDs in place not so much, but concealing the excess wiring and preventing it from dangling down was more than a frustrating challenge.

My thought was to hide it all between the upper deck planking and a second ceiling but as it turned out, some of the supplied figures already touch the upper deck planking and lowering the ceiling would prevent me from showing the crew at allHuh

Now I'm left with the exposed wiring. I think the only option i'm left with will be to paint the wires in a light wood colour in order for them to be less obvious...

I'd like to disguise the LEDs with some sort of cover to make them look more like lanterns. Anyone any ideas where to find some which I might be able to use?

Of course! That's such simple jet effective solution!!!

I initially thought of cutting slots into some brass tubes but your suggestion Martyn is so much better and easier to do. I've got a few brush covers and they are slightly opaque, just needs the lantern frame painted on LOL

Hi folks,

gone down another rabbit hole here...

The visual enhancement that self made ropes give to ship models has caught my interest long ago and I couldn't get my mind off it.

With the help of this forum, inspiration from other ship builders and hours of YouTube videos, I managed to build my own little rope walk machine. Luckily, materials are easy to source these day and the hole build didn't quite break the bank either...

I have not yet tried to make a single rope yet. At which time, I'm sure some more improvement will have to be made such as adding wheels and extended wiring to make use of a remote

Here is my version at it's current state

At the moment I can stack it to be more compact when stored away. The addition of wheels might compromise this, but I guess as so many others used wheels on the trolley to reduce friction, so they seems essential rather than just let the trolley slide on a flat surface!?

Thanks guys!

After trialing the rope walk, I very quickly realised why others have use a switch extension. Trying to operate the two machines at two different ends using the installed switches proved to be completely impractical.

Therefore, I installed wireless switches to avoid having a cable dangling around.

I'm very pleased with the result of my first ropes. Seeing self-made ropes on picture is one thing but looking at them for real makes you really appreciate the difference to the supplied threads and ropes with this kit!

This black rope is made from the 0.15mm supplied thread.

The beige rope was made from Güntermann yarn, same as used by Olha Batchvarov, who in general was a great inspiration for this little project!

For comparison, I changed the rope used on the barrels - one of the first things I built.
