    La nina, caravel.

    Back to it after a bit of a break, (after trying to fathom out whatever posessed me to make it so small and fiddly!) 😂 it's time to 'try' and rig it. Off to a slow start, but it's a start nonetheless! 😂

    Thank you all for encouraging words. Jeff B, I am planning to bottle my next models. These two are to be demonstation models only.

    How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    Oh yeah I was going to explain those. I've experiment with various ways of doing dead eyes and I thought I'd add one method into this beginners build. This is purely optional and their are other more advanced methods that work well but if your just starting out this method works pretty well. What I did was get some paint on the end of a toothpick and just tap the back stay where the dead eyes go. Let the paint dry and do this over and over until the paint builds up into a little dot and looks like a very tiny dead eye. It will take five or sick coats so be patient with it, of coarse thats the name of the game with this hobby.

    Jeff bs build #3.

    After looking at Dsiemens, and Exwafoos Ratline jigs, I made one too. Started out with holes, but the lines are crooked. Notches in the side worked out better. Thread locked into position with super glue.

    I noticed that there are tiny spots on the mast rigging at the channels. How are they made and why?

  20. Then I needed to do the wiring for all the rigging, fasten them and trim the ends.
  21. The next stage is to place the surface of the case in the bottle, install it in place, bring the ends of the rigging out..
