I have a liking for these corvettes. Does anyone have a current link for the Oliver Bier model...all the ones I see are early types with Gray hulls. I have been looking everywhere but I cannot find a link that works. Thanks....

Hi drg,
Excellent job, I join everyone else in congrats!
I am relatively new to the hobby, did some rigging on my "Oldenburg" which I wrote here. It went reasonably well as a first effort.

But I was going to ask if you could have the time to give us a more detailed 'how to' for the Battleford.

I did read about the sequence of doing foremast, then aft then joining which makes perfect sense. But there are 4 or 5 lines joining the masts, all independently, plus, a line funnel to foremast with its own 4 downlines.

I think theres enough skill and procedure in the rigging alone to nearly make its own blog but am coming up to building vessels earlier and bit later than Battleford which have similar rigging conundrums to tackle so would really appreciate any and all you have to tell!

Kind Regards,
