Well I'm so cross with myself, went to do some rigging on this and dropped it, snapped off the rear mast broke the shrouds on the fore mast snapped some of the rigging on the bowsprit, a few of the hatches have come off, broken some of the stanchions round the top of the rear cabin. luckily nothing that cant be fixed but its put me back quite a bit, Grrrr and no one to blame but my butter fingers. I could almost swear, flippin heck, blimey and fiddle sticks (sorry for the profanities there)

Hi all here is tonight update may I first say anyone contemplating this ship, please read the rigging instructions alongside the build instructions and dont leave them till the end, as you can plainly see I have not done that and still I've made things extremely awkward for myself, there is some rigging from the main mast to the four iron rings in the deck which now I have the belaying pin racks and the foremast shrouds in place will be extremely difficult to attatch.
anyway here is where I'm at now.

Hi all here is the next update on this








Baring in mind these are almost Identical scales (the thermop is 1/96 and the soliel is 1/100) I still cant believe how much heavier and bulkier and cumbersom the soliel was (I mean I know she had to be able to withstand cannon fire and such) but she must have been sooooooo slooooowwwww

Repetition of doing things can be relaxing or boring, depending on mood. Ship is coming along, Rigging, sails etc would drive me to rum!

Looking great. I think the rigging really rocks. I need to get back to mine and do some on it. Your work motivates me. LOL.

I can't believe I missed this WIP, or Build Log, lol. My 'rescue' of a ship was the Revell Cutty Sark which is basically the same kit with different decals and paint scheme. And during my build I also snapped off part of the bowsprit after rigging had started … talk about deja vu.

Great build! The only real advice I have to offer as far as rigging is concerned is do all the standing rigging first before you lay in on the running rigging, this makes an extremely complex task a smidgen easier. Oh, and patience, lots and lots of patience. It might seem daunting but each little bit adds up after a while and pretty soon you'll be looking at it and wondering how you managed it. At least that's how it was for me.

I look forward to following this build
