thanks Vic

Was yesterday looking at the photos of your boat again, and it starts to itch.
Only the carving is much too difficult for me.

Too bad there is no monography of this boat, otherwise ??

Lucc,

The anchors look perfect! (as is the rest of your model). I can't believe how big that ship is. Looking forward to seeing it on the water when you have the chance to do so.

kind regards
Tim

The solution for the mainsails



Another problem, when the wind come into the sails ,the corner of the sails move toward eachother.

I tought that Danl used pianowire to solved this problem.

So i must go search pianowire

an alternative is make a functional "tack" so to say by making a run around loop from each edge of the sail forward across the deck and then to the other edge.

that also has teh advantage of making teh sails look more realistic as they lift.

but these lines aren't going to prefent that the sailcorners are coming to the middelline of the ship.

as long as there is some tension on them they should not give too much, besides thats exactly how the real sail would behave

gosh oh gee...i get a chance to contribute a little something ....what i did was sew very thin stainless steel spring wire to the foot of the sail....one hardly sees it...can't remember where i got it...i know i had to work to straighten it....actually i had to heat it with a torch to soften it a bit to straighten.......

lucc you can try the loop by just running a piece of string from the clew forward through a gunport across the deck and through another gunport back to the clew and see how it works.
i`d be really interested in the result
The reason why i don`t like a wire (which is teh sollution i used) was that teh wire would get stuck on the shrouds giving teh foot of teh sail much less rotation than the yard and causing it to go aback very early and acting as an airbreak more than propulsion..

The big boat on the big boat.










Meatbomber , i attached a pulley on the foremast instead through gunports.

And instead of pianowire ,i used "carbon"sticks
