This is incredible and great to see unfolding! The work on the planks along the hull is particularly inspiring. I hope the build is going well currently. Cheers!

Hello,
Thank you for nice comments.

It took me a little time to finish various small additions and details, but finally I managed to put masts and have something new to show.
I will start with the most unpleasant thing, i.e. chains for deadeyes, which are made on the model literally of chains. When I write an autobiography (:-), I will give the title: "Whoever will persuade me to build a sailing ship with chains, my enemy will be for all times". If the chain had larger links, it probably would not be so difficult, but the larger one would not fit visually. It came out as it turned out: from a distance it is OK, at close range ... well, not always and not everything have to be 100% successful.



The rest was a piece of cake. Masts made of wood, painted and finally stained with black paint - I was hoping for a better effect, but ultimately they passed the quality control (-"Why do you paint them in such a @^&!!# color?!"- one hour later - "And now can they be?" - "Now they are OK "). The tops (platforms) are quite complex and I should build them in a different order: the inner cone had to be adjusted and pasted in the end. I first glued it to the base, then attached columns to it, and the upper ends of them formed a circle a bit larger than the planned upper rim, so it was a bit of a "strength" adjustment with the help of CA. Blocks drawn and cut with a laser could be a little smaller.



Shrouds, stays... and the lower part of masts is ready:





PS. One of the modelers in Portugal gave me a "gift". He especially for me went to the Museum in Lisbon and made some additional photos (not only Sao Gabriel). The newest photos can be viewed here: https://shipsofscale.com/sosforums/t...16/#post-54189

Best
Tomek

Very nice, Tomek.
I once worked with chains with small links (I usually only use long chains, which I explained in one of my postings). I solved the problem by stretching the chain tightly between two crocodiles, CA glued the links and cut the stretches into the lengths I needed. Rather easy to apply to the ship.:-)

That sounds extremely dangerous.

Haha.
But I still have all of my fingers...
I call them crocodiles and seen with a magnifier they look quite dangerous. :-)
