    I plan on using the basic rigging and then move from there. There are a lot of ropes involved in the rigging, as well as the ones folded on the belaying pins and around the deck. Also, there is the rigging for the cannons, which are not depicted in the model plans. There are more details that are not present in the build and I am researching ships during this time period for more insight as to how they were constructed. There are some differences in the deadeyes as well, the well known three holes and the open hole version.

    I,am going to bag this model in plastic until i can get back to building it again.My hand is still not great.

    Sounds like smart idea. If you have a large enough box, I'd advise putting it in plastic, and the box. Keep it out of the U.V rays. That way any future printing won't mismatch. The issue with my hands puts us in the same "boat" pardon the pun. Your place here is important so you make sure you hang around here!! :)
