Eventually got back to doing a bit more of the rigging this evening. Wednesday and thursday evenings should see this stage complete. It gets a bit repetitive tieing knots in thread (approx 1000 so far). Been busy working on my 1:1 models :D

Hi Mike, I made them free hand. They were tied of in situ and i used a guage that i marked out on a spare piece of ply to space the lines out evenly. It was my first atempt at this.

I posted a reply on your Hood diary relating to this build, now that I am finding my way around I will try and keep a watch on how you progress from here, from the few photos that have been posted you seem to have everything under control! How much more of the build is left to do? When did this build start as I have not seen any adverts for this build and nothing seems to come up for Del Prado when I google, only ebay!!!!

Del Prado went bust a while ago, so you won't find anything on the web about them.
