Krill,

I apologize in advance if you’ve already answered this question. What type of glue do you use on your rigging? I’ve been using CA (SuperGlue) but I don’t like the stiffness it creates in the line. 

Thanks,

Steve

Good day Steve... to fix various kind of "knots" , I use also CA , but CA gel... it is more easy/handy to use...aply it by tooth pick... I use it for all rigging and for fixing other details on the model as well... liquid CA I use in "specific "area only, when need to "freeze" thread , to keep requered shape... when making "crowfeet" rigging for example...than threads need to be repainted again, due to liquid CA discolorate them ...

but there is some specific in my threads , which I use for rigging... they are heavily painted with acrylic paints, and became quite hard after that, like a cppper wire :)... to imitate natural slack , when lines passes through blocks for example,...I use small drop of CA in this place, where it passes trough block, than bend and keep the line in requered position untill CA became dry... and restore paint color of the line if ness-ry

Kirill

I’ll have to give the gel CA a try. Hopefully it will look better than what I’m doing now! 

I’ve never thought to repaint a line if it becomes discolored, another trick I’m going to have to try.

Thanks as always,

Steve

Dear friends,

today finished fastening running rigging of mizzen sail - sheet, in the form of whip (Anderson p.238, pic.318) mizzen bowlines , here I tried to imitate making rope coil in "new" form and mizzen tack - a simple cable \ added guide block ... this rigging, how exactly to manage it, I don't know -so,on the pictures you will see purely my fantasy, I don’t know how it should be on the galleon ... I tried to do it on "motives" in the way of Anderson (and Hockel) ... :)

and this evening I began rigging the topenants lifts ...

here is too much uncertain for me ,  how strange it all turns out ... in the old pictures with galleons, and as Anderson and his comrades write about it (Anderson ,from p. 234 and on ...) it is often seen that the mizzen lifts went to the main  top mast head , and everything seems to be fine passes ... well, in general of course :) ... but in fact, on the model, this can be managed only if I move the mizzen yard to the port or starbord in max position ... in such case, lifts doesn't   "break" mizzen top mast shrouds  ... in all other cases. ..it simply doesn"t work fine and smooth... or  as Anderson mentioned, as soon as mizzen sail is setted,by analogy with lug-sail, then there is no need for tmizzen lifts, since the necessary inclination of the mizzen yard is provided by the tension of the mizzen sail tack ...

 

I actually depicted mizzen lifts as a kind of “generalized-simplified” version, based on what Icould understood from / in the old “pictures” and on the reconstruction of the rigging of the 1610 galleon from Peter Kirsch ...

Kirill,

I tried to rig my Nina like you just did with your Mizzenmast rigging. I did not even come close and it was 1/90 scale. 

I’m going to keep your build WIP handy so that when I finish the Pinta, Santa Maria etc, I can use it.

Good day Steve,

Thanks , I 'm glad if You found some  usefull information here for your own building :).

And thank You very much for share your painting technique.

Most complicated part in this mizzen rigging stage for me ,it was to arrange evenly distributed load of each bridle/or "legs" in lifts crowfoot. In this case I used ordinary sewing thread, not painted...

As soon as I reached desired effect with tension, not perfect, but at least they became more or less looks equal straight , than I fix each crowfeet line with liquid CA - CA was applied all along each line( in purpose to make them hard), and next day ,when CA became" good "dried ... I made imitation of knots and secure each line with imitation of seizing, and only after this stage, all lines were painted and stained...

Again, this is looking superb. When I see such intricate scale work, I sometimes wonder if it would be easier just to build the actual ship in the back garden!

Kirill,

You are very welcome. I hope it makes sense, especially using seven different oil colors. One of the things I’ll go over with in the next post is how I vary the amount of paint and colors depending on the location.

Thank you so much for the information on the crowsfeet, they look absolutely stunning. I love how the glue keeps them from sagging. I also assume that you made the blocks for the crows feet too?

I do have a question on the first picture though. I‘m on the iPad right now so it doesn’t have the HD quality of the desktop. It looks like the crows feet lines are inserting into holes on the yard itself. Am I way off and you’re actually wrapping the lines around the yard?

Thanks,

Steve

Good day Steve,

Regarding crowsfeet lines, Yes,

first they pass trough drilled holes in the yard

than each line loaded with small weight of pin/or clamp, lenght of crowfeets lines adjusted ,

and  the other end alternatevely loaded ,these stages performed more or less simultaneously...

and finaly , all crowsfeet lines need to be liquid CA" plated "...

after a while, when lines became dry, I wrapped the lines around the yard and made seizing imitation ...

I 've found that it was the easiest way for me ,how to make crowsfeet looks more realistic effect with assistance of these drilled holes in the yard,pins as temporary weights and applied CA on each line... 

in reality - this is not the way,how crowsfeet need to be arranged , no drilled holes in the yard I guess...

I sincerely hope that your image hosting site stays in business for many years. I'd hate to be deprived of this outstanding WIP. It is a tutorial, a motivator, a lesson in perseverance, and a work of art that I'd hate to lose.

Kirill, 

Wow, wow and wow! I could look at your rigging all day and not see everything you have going on. Just magnificent sir.

You might have gome over my question earlier in your WIP, but I cannot seem to find it. So, do you make your own blocks and if so, what materials do you use?

Thanks as always for answering my questions my friend,

Steve
