Could you like or agree with the idea of spheric fishing leads? Some of them have the passing through hole, some other have the stainless steel eye.
I guess they can be found almost everywhere.

Hi Alberto, believe me I spent enough time trying to use real lead, I cut my losses and did the best I could. With a year and a half into this project, I have to make concessions now as then ( MANY more boats to build ) ...
Thanks for your comments.

Time to move on to rigging.

1st will be the brass chain stays that secure the outriggers and mast...

4 one each side, bolted to the side boards per plan.

The picture of the finished model shows all 4 stays but that model has 3 high sideboards, I elected to use only 2.

The 3rd picture is of the outrigger pole limit bars, they have a folding scissor action and are straight out when the poles are deployed.

Copper stays were provided with the kit but I decided to make my own out of K&S flat brass stock.

Cut to length, diagonal ends to match the angle, drilled and will be chemically treated they are ready to go on the side boards.

As you did on your ghost pirate ship project, section by section, layer by layer 'till it's done...

Hi Tim,
The rigging on a Monty has always been intimidating to me...I guess I just don't understand it all. On the Pirate Ship, the more messed up it was, the better it looked.

Thanks Mr. May...

Tedious work painting all the Many little brass nuts and bolts that hold the stays to the sideboards, they all have to be cleaned with acetone then painted.

After they are well dried, the fasteners are put through the stay mount holes, all 8 are now "weathered" and secure..

Absolutely spot on Tim. I like that type of batch building and weathering.
