This is a truly outstanding and inspiring job! Thank you for sharing!

I didn't know IMAI manufacture until recently, are thos kit still in production? I made a search on the web with no results, I'm particularly interested in the plastic ones, they seems to be a nice starting point for adding more details.

Kirill,

Your work is so excellent and superior to most models I've seen on the Internet that I think you ought to consider asking these folks:

http://navalmuseum.ru/

If they'd like to pay you 637,500 rubles for it? Actually that's only $10,000 USD - it's probably worth more Big Smile

Mike

there are a few pictures abt  kit anchor convertion...it need to be made a little bit different form , more ancient, than kit's anchor...

and here a few pictures regarding this " potal" which I mentioned early...

prepaired lead bloks for spritsail sheet pendant 

  this potal shining too bright

actually, on galleon' decor shouldn' be some gilded decor or gold paint...it is not historical accurate... but I like this ...:)))

later on I will try to change decor painting scheme / need to remove most of this "gold"/ to replace it for ordinary shaded colors...

Good day,

Dear friends, Thank you very much for your attention and positive comments!

I'm very glad you found this building interesting :)))

Since my last reports,  I ve had some smal progress in rigging mizzen and bonaventure masts...

And this summe had some experiments with potal instead of gold paint! 

What I could say... using "potal "( artificial gold flakes) it makes much more gilded effect than any other gold paint...it is very easy to apply it as well ....just only it need to be finished with glossy varnish at the end, to preven changing ib colors...without varnish finish coat it became reddish as time passes...

and later I desided to replace stern picture for relief with Holly Mother,as seems to me it is more suitable to be here than previous picture...

there are a few foto of Duyfken replica , to compare mizzen rigging arrangements with my model...there was/and still have :) a question how to arrange mizzen "bowlines"?....it is difficult to imagine , how they should work when controling mizzem yard movement fron side to side...?

here you could see mizzen bowlines rigged in a little bit different way

I just stumbled across this thread, I. AM. SPEACHLESS!!! You dear sir, are a master amongst mere mortals!

I have seen your comments here and there on this forum and as I have been updating my Constitution log I decided to lurk around and saw this build log, words simply cannot describe what you are creating, I have been studying this build for the last 4 hours and I still can't believe the detail, well done sir! Well done!

Good day Steve,

Thanks for your attention to my build :),

you asking abt blocks - most of them were made /casted from epoxy , but since starting mizzen mast rigging, I began using some of fabric made bloks , size of 2.0 mm, which I don't have anymore on stock and lazy to replanish my stock/made them again :)... found some model company which made various sizes of wooden blocks with correct shape and good quality(for my test)... after painting, they looks very similar to epoxy blocks which I used on this model. 

last days I completed upper mizzen sail lift and rigged main topgallant braces...

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

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.

Mike

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...
