Your new ropes certainly look more in scale than the provided ones', great idea on the motorised ropewalk :clap: :clap: :clap:

FANTASTIC!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:
That rigging looks spot-on, probably the best example I've seen on ANY partwork forum!!!. I've looked round the real Victory before the masts were removed and the way you have presented those dead eyes and associated rigging looks just like the real thing. I would love to have had my time again building my Victory and using your diary as a build guide :dance: I very much doubt that I would have done a lot better job but, I am also convinced that there would have been a tiny improvement purely from the very good photography and different angles you show. You need to get this masterpiece finished its an absolute work of art.
Of course a "K" is awarded for your efforts and look forward to the next instalment, best regards, Steve..
