Don, Leif, Mike, abhovi, Mike1158 thanks for your comments everyone
Leif the ship isnít that big a model actually although with masts and rigging will certainly grow larger for later display.. nice in a way to have had it small enough to be on my desk this last few years ha
Mike I was hoping to get the opportunity to return to this...
Hereís a pic for scale the mossie is not a small model but is 1/33

Hi Glen!

A nice model you have there! A real beauty taking shape. The colors give the model that wooden look and I like particularly the copper plating. The rigging comes along nicely and I am looking forward to seeing more of it!

rmks2000 thanks pretty fun
Radek thank you kindly, the copper is time consuming but turned out as good as had hoped and was a bit of an experiment for me

I've been clove hitching my way across the ratlines. I'd been wanting to do this from the first, tried other methods but this looks cooler to my eye and after a few lines across were done was able to get the hang of it. For awhile the knots were half hitches sometimes, ect...not that pretty so had to redo a couple.

Hello Glen,
The ratline technique has a very authentic appearance.
It is probably time consuming, but worth the effort.
Mike

Mike it is not as hard to do as I thought, but if I left it until the end of rigging the ratlines would seem like a bigger job so I'm trying to do them as I go along. It's actually a bit fun to do surprisingly. Starting the process at the mainmast, the lower deadeyes and the futtock shrouds are up so far.

Thankee Don. Have a few days away from this but am trying to figure out how the rigging may have been in 1832. This is puzzling as right during a time of rigging changes, notably the fore yard's braces not long before they were all taken to the rail at midship, the fore, topsail and royal braces. The braces from the main mast I think all went to a bumpkin at the aft outer bulwarks. This ship is interesting in that the rigging is right in the middle between the much earlier Cleopatra and the late James Tuft design. (Which had chains and cable rigging on the foremast) my knowledge of rigging has lots of gaps yet.
