rigging looks great Si!

Just wondering though, would there have been a line running to A turret? Or is that my eyes playing tricks on me?



I wondered that. Interesting design from the Russians. The finished rigging looks great!

cheers Michael

Si,

Very nice work with the rigging. I am surprised by how good the wire looks even on such long lengths.

The saga of the rigging continues.

One thing missing from the kit is the gaff, fabricated from a bit of brass rod.



Now just rigging.









And done.



first bit of bow railings on



Ran out of time, steam and eyesight at that point.

Cheers

Rigging!

I chicken out and use EZ line



I chicken and use copper wire, I tried EZ line and ended up with a birds nest.

Looking great. A complex web you're having to create. You must have a steady hand to paint those wires.

cheers

Thanks Michael,

I just have to ease off on the coffee a bit

Si,
Great stuff! Love those funnel stays. It was interesting to see them made with wire instead of EZ line or monofilament.

Hi Gaz

It works for me mate, and it's recycling, stripped out of dead electrical gear, and cables.

Thanks for looking in.

Cheers

Si,

Nice progress with the rigging. To use PE for the stays for the funnels is gusty. I would have most like bent them if I attempt it. EZ-line is my friend.

Mark



EZ line FTW. Some good stuff.



Hi Charlie,

OK, I may give it another try some time.

There are areas the old copper wire can be a real pain.

Cheers

Thanks Mark,

You are close with the funnel stays, copper wire, similar issues.

Must admit I have tried EZ-Line but couldn't get on with it. horses for courses mate.

Nice start! I always like the rigging on the funnels, fiddly but makes a huge difference.

cheers
Michael



Thanks Michael,


It is, especially when the ends are amongst the boats, but it is such a feature on the ships of this era, would be a shame to miss it.

Hi Russ,

Yup Boris is going to be busy for a while.

I admit there will be quite a bit of guess work, I have found a few photos & diagrams, but not a decent full plan.

Cheers

Update of the recent work.

The one pic I omitted from the last update.



The mainmast in place.



Davits that sit on the side of the hull aft of the midships secondary turret.

Very fragile and tricky to fold.



sprayed.



Making the downhauls for lines between the funnels.






The rigging under way.













Still a long way to go with the rigging.

More soon.

Cheers

Si

All looking great Simon. I have no idea how you keep so many projects on the go and organized. If I have more than 2 kits going at once my work space is a disaster!




Thanks Rory,


Insanity mate, my work bench is a permanent disorganised disaster area. The basic idea is lots of smallish plastic boxes with bits of each project in.

Occasionally I get things mixed up and temporarily misplace bits, but they usually turn up.


The upside is I always have something else to work on whilst glue or paint is drying, and quite often can airbrush bits of different projects in one go, saves time & airbrush cleaner!

Cheers

Si

Wow Si,

you have come quite a long way since I last checked in here!

Nice and smooth work as always, mate, and your 'almost' OOB build looks really fine! It looks like your are approaching the final push here!

Cheers,
Jan




Thanks Jan,

It is a really nice kit, and the etch is very usable.

Got strted on the rigging at the weekend. will post the update later / tmrw.


Always good to have you look in.

coming to a swift conclusion here Si




Got to rig her yet, and I reckon that will take nearly as long again, love these complex predread rigs

she will have an earlier version of herself joining the fleet at some time, but the next pre dread will be British, and looking like she was in 1915.


Thanks for looking in mate.

Cheers

Si
