which looks most realistic

Hi all here is an update on this one. All the guns in place (still got to tie some down) all the closed gunports glued in.













I've discovered that the slots in the grating for the bowsprit tie downs are not there so had to make them.

The effect of the ship cutting through the water is outstanding. I am not very familiar with this genre of modeling so it might be the norm, but man I think it rocks. Nice work.

Hi all well I know nothing about rigging so I'm going to do a cross between the Airfix instructions and ones I've downloaded off the internet (I could not possibly do them the way they are supposed to be, I don't have a clue as to where to start) I dont even know what the different lines are called.












also I bought this to do the ratlines with


but This came with the Airfix Wasa kit



which would be the easiest to use.

I know nothing about rigging or sailing ships for that matter so can't help you. This is an outstanding display piece. A real beauty. Just do whatever you need to do. Maybe take some thread or fishing line and try each of the fixtures. Then pick the one that is best for you.

Great work all around. The water effect is awesome. Rigging is the most difficult but most rewarding when it's over. I'm surprised Heller didn't provide a basic rigging diagram for it.

Hi all well the amati Loom A Line is total rubbish, the airfix doodah is brill though, so that is 10 quid down the drain, the airfix whatsit was free with the Wasa.









Rigging is deffinitely not my thing, I am thinking maybe take the top mast off just leave the lower masts and have it as its having a refit, don't know

To tell the truth I don't see a problem with what you have done. I think the rigging is super. It is rope so not rigid. I think it looks like rope rigging being tossed about as the ship crashes trough a wave. I say don't take nothing off, just keep after it.

Hi all well I've decided to plug away at the rigging and here's where I am now, I've discovered I can do more than one set at a time with this thingy, thus saving loads of thread.

Well I know it's not finished but it's sold, my boss's husband came round to show me his car (some little horrors standing on a bridge lobbed a rock as he drove under and stoved in his drivers pillar and windscreen (the cars only a fortnight old £90,000 worth) he spied it and the Reale and said the Reale was too big for his new seaside house but he would buy the sovriegn.

Hi all a little update on this one, I've done the anchors and dirtied up the flag a bit as it was pointed out it was a bit clean compared to the sail.
