    masts and yards..........

    Hi friends,

    today I began the masts and yards. A work I don´t like.

    Today I tried something new. Rolling the masts from paper of a phone book. The paper is very thin but strong.........
    Already the first attempt brought me diameters of approx 1mm !!

    Here are all the prepared parts for the two masts with it´s yards.
    Notice: only the masic mast segments are included in the kit........

    Breath-taking work Flu. Your detailing is fabulous.

    Making your own anchor chains from scratch... Stop it! You're making the rest of us look bad.

    Just kidding you know. Keep up the great work.
