Ok, standing rigging has been started.  I like to begin with the Mizzen shrouds, starting on the STBD side, then moving forward.  I use a simple twisted wire to make a spacer for the deadeyes, then clip in the shroud to the deadeye to secure.  Lanyards are then threaded into the deadeyes and secured.  I do temporarily secure the Port side of the Mizzen to help keep it aligned midships as the shrouds go in under tension.  A slow, methodical process.  But, rewarding.  Dennis

All lower stays and shrouds are installed.  Next is lower ratline work.  Very calming.  Just a side note as we remember the 50th year celebration of the Apollo 11 moon shot mission.  I was just nearing my Navy career and will never forget the tv pictures of the first man on the moon.  As I work on this model and reflect that we are all explorers. Space, the Final Frontier!  Cheers  Dennis

Thank you sir.  :-)   Many years of model making and these old hands can still manage.  I think this hobby keeps you young.  On to Ratline work now.   My method is to tie with clove hitches in a surpentine pattern.  Touch with fast glue and clip.  Of course for the rivet counters, true method was to have a loop on the inside of each outter shroud that the ends of the ratlines are secured to.  I don't think I have ever used that much detail before.... but did think about it a time or two. ok2  Dennis

Starboard ratline work progressing.  Installed Futtock and its ratlines on lower main.  Clove hitch shown in detail... knots can be slid up and down shrouds to adjust for level.  A touch of fast glue secures everything as I go along... very tedious and slow... its funny at our house, dear wife is in the family room doing her cross stitch that turns out like a fine oil painting and I'm here in the back office/hobby room building old sailing ship models. We are a real pair. :-) Dennis

More slow progress being made on rigging the Mayflower.  All standing rigging is installed.  Ratlines are all tied in.  Top forestays are in with block and tackle appropriate.  Garnet lifting tackle is installed.  Just installed the running backstays for the foremast.  Main mast will be same.  After that will come the mizzen.  I will be installing a fully rigged mizzen sail on this model per request from the owner.  I'll try to show that in detail, as its most interesting how that sail was rigged.  Much more to do yet.  Cheers!  Dennis

The block we see in the centre of  picture 'garnet tackle (2) must have been a really heavy one! Glad I wasn't around in those days  :o .
Looking good Dennis  :-))
