At least you all have a photo of me so you can make up your own captions for it - hohohoho -as I always say, "don't dish it out unless you can also take it" - expecting some good comments to go with the photo

Ratline fastened to the top of the mast, when dry and solid will fasten the bottom ends and try and get some tension in them.

In trouble again, will be ANOTHER clip round the ear from Haddock.  Having lost the order of battle plan for this model when my room was done have fastened the ratlines at the top of the aft mast before cleaning out the holes in the double bits of chain representing pulley blocks. So will have to do this and also wire up the pulley blocks for the ships boats in place, will see what damage I will do in the process. The plan was to do this bit before adding the aft mast to the ship - well best, laid plans of mice and men  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Are you the new John Steinbeck with your new title - or should we just stick to fastening bits of plastic together  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

Yes the life of a modeler - it seems to involve a lot of naughty nautical language - hohohoh
The holes drilled out with a 1/2 mm drill and then a small reamer used - would have been easier before the mast was fitted to the ship but never mind ,it will get done, then wired up

Have been in the doghouse sorting out stuff that was removed when I did my room - and at last found the base for the ship. 
Yes it will be ANOTHER clip round the ear from Haddock - as he says all ships should be placed in some sea - but this one is being done as a museum one.

Thank you both but still a lot of rigging to do - and then the figures, how do you convert 1/350 scale WW2 seaman into a Chinese Lord ?
