Wilheim.......


In certain cases, anti-rotation spikes with a 'drop-down' ends were uses between pairs of turn buckles.......easily adjusted, although for  standing or fixed rigging the requirement for adjustment is low.....however natural vibration & under tension, can cause rotation


Small lengths of galvanised wire rope were also used, although could look a little out of keeping on a vessel of this style or Class

Thanks Derek,
that makes sense. Maybe a thin spring loaded split pin, for easy removal, might do the trick. I will look into it.

Yes, make sure it is tidy & not to be a scratch hazard as unbroken wire rope could be  <*< .....were all of the Turnbuckles & fastners included in the kit?, or did you purchase them?....Knupfer??...excellent product & people


Maybe a drop of Loctite 243 on each of those M2 brass bolts & nuts.......[easily removable with standard spanners, but will never vibrate loose]


[The Knupfer 3,0 SW [or 3 AF] OE spanner is the standard size for the M2 bolts & nuts] - [10BA is ~~ the same AF size, but the spanners are x 1.5 the head thickness & head diameter]

@Derek,
the M1.4 fasteners and turnbuckles were included in the kit. Too bad that the turnbuckles were made of white metal and for this application definitely useless. The fasteners were of good quality. I did buy the brass turnbuckles from "prime-miniatures" in the UK. Great service and product!


@Seacommander,
thanks for your kind comment. I will post some pictures of her in the water but it won't be before ice out by middle or late April. :((

Hi, this week was the maiden voyage. Everything went well and she really shines on the water. The location of the ballast ( in correlation with the center of gravity) seems to be spot, no problems even in faster turns. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
