Rigging of Agamemnons stay is ready.

Before I started making the yards, I had to modell two little details at the bowsprit.

At first the traveler. - First trial -

Image

And second the sprit netting.

Image

Image

There is no problem to turn up the yards to a diameter of 10mm on the turning-lathe.

Image

So that I can shape the middle part of the yards octagonal without making it thinner at these points than the diameter of the yard, I make them from a minimum 2mm thicker dowel as the diameter of the yard shall be.

Image

Next is sanding the central part into an octagon.

Image

Image

The result.

Excellent update Hartmut, interesting and very effective method of doing the yard octagonals from round stock, and an excellent result.

I think I will have to give that a go on the MF70.

Great progress.

The two big yards of the main and foremast are 10mm diameter. That's the maximum which I can turn on the lathe. Therefore wasn't it possible to make the yards as shown before. Therefore, eight ledges glued to the center of the yard, and the problem is done.

Image

Since I had a few pieces of plexiglass, it was obvious to make a stand from it.

I think I'm going to replace the metal rods against which are made of Plexiglass

Cheers Hartmut

More great shots of the model Hartmut, one thing did you not consider adding the ring bolts inside the gunport lids, I would have thought it feasible given the scale?

Regards,

Maurice

Hello Maurice,

there is only one problem. I have forgotten to install the ring bolts, x38x

But I think that there will be a way to add the bolts.
