Hello Hartmut,

I'm pretty new to the forum and I am building the Hellar 1:100 scale HMS Victory. I'm in the very beginning stages even though I have had the kit for about 30 years. It's taken me this long to build up the courage to tackle such a daunting task, even though it is a plastic kit. Eventually I want to tackle a wood ship kit, but I'm far from that at the moment. :)

I came across your build log and I have to say that you have done a MAGNIFICENT job on your ship. I am honestly in AWE of what you have achieved. I'm 67 and in pretty good health, but I don't think I have enough years left to become as accomplished a 'Master Modeler' as you are. I don't know how much more you have to do to complete your build, but to ME, it looks pretty complete and absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. CONGRATULATIONS! XXBRXX

I'll have to keep checking out your continuing saga with much anticipation and excitement.

Thanks,Glenn.

Rigging the spritsail yard was a nice, fiddly job. Especially to make the parrel rope.

The fore yard. Rigging the yard is a little bit difficult. Many ropes and less of place. But I like this jobs. x2x Some shots from the results.

There had been a lot of other things to do in March and April. Therefore is there only little progress in rigging Agamemnon. Here are some shots.
