Cutty Sark
Posted by Mysmallboat on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 6:19 PM

i have the newest re-release of Revells 1/96 Cutty Sark. The instructions are horrible, compared to the original model (399) from a number of years ago. The rigging instructions do not show all the sail lines as compared to the earlier kits. Does anybody happen to have a copy of the black and white instruction/sail and rigging plans from the earlier kits?

Thank you

Craig

Craig,

Radek has the instructions in .pdf form here:

http://soubory.radekshipmodels.cz/CuttySarkRevell1-96A.pdf

If these do not work for you, send me a pm here and I'll scan a copy of mine and send them to you. 

Also, Radek has for sale,  Photo-Etch of the bow and stern scroll work as well as beautifully done flags at this site or on evilBay under hismodels here:

You can also find a wooden deck and rigging blocks on his site. Scaledecks also make a beautiful wooden deck for the Cutty Sark which I have.

I would also recommend that if you seriously want to go full tilt boogie on your model then purchase the plans for the Cuty Sark from the Royal Greenwich Museum: //shop.rmg.co.uk/cutty-sark/shop-by-theme/prints-postcards/product/cutty-sark-rigging-plan.html

They also have the sail plans and arrangements for sale. The late, great Proffesor Tilley gave me the same advice on the plans and I followed it and I cannot say enough about how good that advice was.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Don't bother to find the Revell instructions.

Look for the Campbell drawings. That will do you.

What is the best way to install the photo-etch parts and how are the flags to be attached?

The best way to attach any Photoetch is to either use CA glue (superglue) or Gator glue which is an acrylic glue that is workable and easier to clean up with water.

For the flags, they are made out of a synthetic fabric and can be glued with Gator Glue or plain old white glue. Wrap them around a piece of rigging line and glue the two halves together.

Hopes this helps,

Steve

Thanks Steve.
I just got a communication from Radek that brought me to his web site and his method of installation: http://www.radekshipmodels.cz/en/workflow/photo-etched-ornaments

In reading it I think the use of contact paper (he used the term "foil" that was included in the kit) is a great idea!

Elsewhere on his site is the method for the flags.
