Default Re: Some Weekend Shipwrighting Of A Sort...

I thank ye most kindly me feline friend

Well the tedious but most necessary stuff continues.
Ratlines or footropes as sometimes called on the main mast. A card cheat thingy placed on to try and keep said ratlines sorta straight or as near as damnit.

Not my idea, just something I picked up in the way back when that always seemed like a good idea to me.



So then, 42 lengths of thread 0.010mm diameter, which is about 4thou of an inch or so.
136 knots tied and a drop of model railroad sceneic glue to each knot.
Excellent gear for this kind of job. Kind of a milk consistancy and soaks right in to the thread, dries clear and matt in quite a solid fashion.

Let dry proper, trim up close and the main mast shrouds now fully sorted.







One lot down, one lot to go then the downhill stretch so to speak.

Go easy out there all, take good care of yaselves now!
