                              I have ben hopeing for posts like yours to help me with that. So lets make a start:
                              I use several different threds for rigging, colered threds in two sizes from a craft store and two balls of black string of different sizes, and a length of small black cord, along with several spules of thred left over from other models. I by lenghts of chain in several sizes from a craft store, and neckless when I cant find chain, to cut the links apart to use as pully blocks. Now as to glue--I still use Testers in a tube and by the Testers glue tube tips. I also use a bottle of super glue licquid with a glue tip for the bottle. Now on to a discution of methods: I chose a 1/200scale model for this first build thred because it is a good scale for someone just starting a sailing ship model for the first time. As a model growes bigger the rigging becomes more complex, so the rigging on this model will be simple enuf for a beginer.

                              • Thair are corrections that need to be made to this model [as happens in this hobby ] : The rigging instructions are the werst I can rember= incompleat even for scale, missleading and rong. So you will see quite a difference between my first Royal Louis and this one. Lets start with the ancure cable ports, the kit shows a single port on each side " on the -middle-deck, rather than a -pair-of ports on the -lower-deck whair thay belong. You can't rig the bowsprit side bracess without correcting this. As happens more often than not, I won't have ancure cables the right size-so I finde a thred the right coler and loop brade it to make it bigger. Another problem is the ancurs them selves--the kit suplies two, and you need four. And as English ancurs have straight -angled hooks and the hooks on French ancurs are rounded, I could not use whot exstra ancurs I have. So I will take the ancurs from my first Royal Louis and add them to my secound one, to make it look right.
