    • In the forth shot you can see that I have added :the secound ancurs--that I took from my first Royal Louis, a secound backstay at the middle-foremast, and a secound backstay at the middle and top of the mainmast. Next up will be the squair sails on the bowsprit, the bowsprit side bracess, and the three tryangler sails at the bowsprit.

              • majorchuck--SgtTerry, thankyou both for looking in. I'm strugoling a bit this morning, with the first bow sprit squair sail and have riepaired one of the ancurs for a secound time from brushing against it. I hope to finish tieing small links of chain and lines of thred to it and get it on the ship today.

                          I gruw up on Point Loma in San Diego, California. So A love of sailing ships was natural enuf. My best frend when I was growing up still works at the Star of Indea Mairatime Museum in San Diego Harber. But sence moveing to Washington 19 years ago and joining a cople of model clubs for a short time each, I lerned that very fue plastic modelers build plastic sailing ship models. And that I build them well enuf for them to be apprieceated. It has now become almost a crusade-to keep plastic sailing ships alive as part of the plastic modeling hobby. I apprieceat your intrest in my thred Wedfactory.

                          • Your talent with the sailing ships is amazing. I don't think anyone here could match what you do with them. the rest of us just see the rigging and get all queezy inside and head back to tanks or airplanes. The HMS King George V was daunting enough for me. There is rigging that need to go on it, but I am going to leave it off as the pieces it attaches to are very very thin.

                              When I am waighting for glue or paint to dry I have ben tinkering with that 1/180scale H.M.S. Victory by Humbrole-Airfix. I am trying to change the kit to show the Victory as it appiered when it was first lonched, because I think it looks better that way.
