3 pointsI got a chance to work on the mount that holds the hull in the light bulb and soldered up the Bow Sprit and Jib Boom complete with Martingale. I referenced Underhill's book for this. I had to build a special jig from a miniature close pin to hold the Martingale while soldering. I chose the eyelet end of a sewing needle for ease of rigging later! Tweezers show scale reference Note dot of glue to hold the needle while soldering into position. Used some thin wood shims to get the proper positioning. Here is the completed Bow Sprit/Jib Boom less paint, foot ropes, Head/back stays, and guys. Still some intricate work to do on it today!
2 pointsHello, My name is José medina and I live in Puebla, México. Puebla is about 2130 meters abobe sea level and about 3 hours from Veracruz, the nearest sea port. But even here I discovered the taste for the ships in bottle. Here is my first, the Hannah from Amati. Hope you like it. Greetings from México José
