Hi all you may think I've given up on this but I assure you I've not, I've spent all week on the rigging (not enough to bother posting but enough to drive me insane (I don't remember all the Airfix tall ships I built giving me so much trouble), must be the destructions, hopefully some pics tomorrow. I've done some work on the Royal Sovereign and finished the Honda vfr 750 f but, by the time I've done it, it's too late to post.

Hi all as promised here are some pics














I couldnt find any gold thread to make the fringe round the canopy or the tassles at the end of the flags, so this will have to do

what swmbo dont know cant hurt her Te Hee Hee.
Now I just have to duplicate this on the other side do the rest of the rigging on the main sail then do exactly the same on the front mast and sail.

Hi all the flags on the main mast and the fore mast all have tassles on them, the instructions tell you to wind the gold thread round a rod or tube tie them then cut at the furthest point for the tie. well this is my best attempt out of ten

so, after hours of slaving at making a specialist tool for the job I came up with this.

yes I know it looks futuristic and exotic, and I know everyone will want one (especially at the special introductory offer of £50.00) I am expecting huge order numbers so please be patient, anyway here's how it works







a vast improvement on this

I think you will agree.
I will be taking orders for my new tool which I will be calling the Prongy (catchy name dont you agree) I can see lots of other useful ideas for it too hair combing, lock picking, raking the grass just to mention a few So get in first to avoid the rush.

Hi all I've just realised there are 24 more tassles to make for this kit, its becoming an epic build not sure I'm not sure it will be finished in my lifetime.

Years ago I was given a large scale ship kit and after looking at the complexity, I put it aside.  Your sheer guts in tackling this subject to see it done is a treat for us.  Doing it so well makes it look like a pleasure.  Thanx for the entire cruise!

I've sat down at the table 3 times tonight and done nothing, is this what it feels like to lose your mojo not felt like this before I love modeling but don't seem to have any interest when I sit down.

That's what it feels like for sure. Just ask me I know. It will come back. To model well you have to be in the right frame of mind. Sometimes it's hard to find it, but it always comes back.

Awesome tassles Ken, but wow that would do my head in too!

So far so good chap, will be a great achievement when its complete, I wouldnt rush it though, wouldnt want to mess it up after putting all that effort into it.

This is one of those kits that you look at and immediately appreciate the amount of work that's gone into it.
