Having built a bunch of the lovely Zvezda galleons I couldn't resist the urge to give them some rigging. After a couple of false-starts I think that I have it down now. Follow the action here link

Neat. I like the idea with the nail clippers. TBH, Iīm highly tempted to get hold of some of these..your fault:-)

Amazing work! Kind of reminds me of that string game we played years ago with patterns between the fingers of both hands, when someone makes a bad move with one finger and everything goes crazy.

Pauls Bods, my daughter suggested them, also the superglue really makes the thread a lot easier to cut, no loose ends or fuzziness it snips clean off like plastic.

Did the same thing when rigging my Cogs etc, works a treat but didnīt think of using Nail clippers.

Great work. I mostly shy away from sailing ships for my lack of skill in rigging.

Lord I don't need another project, but…. Anton, those look great do the models come waterlined already?

nnascati, Yes they do, the kit is made as either a display piece with a full hull or a wargaming model, I reviewed all of the kits in this range here; link
