Brigantine

Details. Running rigging goes through deck and can be worked from below.

Did you make this Stein?

I am impressed by the look of the sails and reefing ties. In fact the detail overall is very impressive.

Thanks Brian. It actually is rather rough and crude by model-building standards here, as it was done relatively fast with cheap materials and were really meant for my eyes only. I made it some 15 - 20 years ago while heavily into tecnicalities. Unfortunately the sheave-less blocks dont work that well: notice the topgallant halliard purchase aft of the four shrouds (reddish rope mess between two blocks right above the bulwarks above the title "Brigantine" underneath the picture).
I also began, and nearly finished, a steel barque some 2,5 metres long (this one is half a metre), also with workable running rigging, but when I had to leave one domicile for something cheaper and smaller it was downrigged by necessity and put in storage :sweat:. Regards, Stein.
