  1. Here's the pdf version of the rigging primer. I can't always get the html version in the zip file to work. -Rigging Primer by John Fox III.pdf
  2. I found the thread again. The rigging primer is in the comments theres a zip file and a pdf. I'll post a link here so people can circle back to that thread. Some forums get uppity about re discussing things and insist you go back to the old conversation which they then leave up to you to find. I think that's annoying and unhelpful. I've also found we get new information every time we discuss something so if any one wants to add to the conversation they can use this thread or another thread. Linking threads and having several discussions I think helps up the chances of people finding what they need anyway.
  3. As far as terminology a good start is John Fox III's rigging primer. Let me see if I can find it again.
  4. I'm not familiar with those particular books. Might be worth trying. I prefer Don Hubbards book. I think it's not in print and maybe a little harder to find. Does look like some used copies are pretty cheap though. https://www.amazon.com/Ships-Bottles-Step-Step-Venerable/dp/0943665000
  5. This makes me want to do another xebec. They have such great lines.
  6. Beautiful work so far. I did this one several years ago it's a fun ship to build. Mine wasn't half as good as yours is turning out to be though.
  7. Question is will the bottle in your stocking be full or empty? 😄
  8. Love it. She's going to be a great looking ship in bottle.
  9. Love it. The 1920's must have been a fun time for ship modeling. This is very much the same spirit that E. Armitage McCann built his models.

    RSmith Ask any question you need on the Sloop thread. I'm happy to help.
  11. The wheels on the gun carriages reminded me of a trick I used to keep track of cannons.
  12. That's looking great. Love the planking.
