No problem Philo. If you want any more pics, let me know.
Don, I have the Alliance Modelworks PE ratline set & it's really nice. I don't know if that's the generic one you mentioned in your post or not. I intend to use it if I ever get around to building the Cutty Sark & Constellation.
Although I haven't used it yet, I'd recommend it to anyone building a 1/350 sailing ship.
Is this the one you mentioned?
- Yes, that appears to be the one.
In regards to your comment on the 1/600 Airfix & Heller kits - I don't have any Airfix that small (I think my HMS Shannon is close though - 1/450 - 1/500 maybe?)
I do have two of the Heller 1/600 kits - Le Phenix & La Couronne. Both are pretty nice little kits but I'd have to give the nod to Le Phenix because of the vac formed sails.
I'd have to say that my Heller 1/500 Le Superbe is without a doubt the best detailed small scale sailing ship kit that I have. The surface detail is really nice, much better than either the 1/600 kits or the 1/350 kits. If it had vac sails like the Le Phenix kit, it would be close to perfect IMHO.
I've been looking for some 1/500 - 1/600 PE ratlines for these kits before I start but I haven't found any yet.
