BigGrin Cheers for the comments Tom and Phil. Really pleased with the way the sails have turned out.
A small update all the rigging has now been completed. I wanted to have the mizzen yard sail to have a bit of sag in it to match the angle Cool
I have just started to make the rope coils to go over the belay pins and knightsheads Cool
The anchors have been fitted to one side. I have used some larger blocks for the lift from the cats head that I had in my spares box and some rope left over from my Vasa build.
Getting near the end of this brilliant kit Love . The crew will be the last thing to fit

Thanks for looking
Martyn

BigGrin Thank you very much for the brilliant comments guys Cool

This is the last update on the SR as she is now finished Crying . She has been a joy to build and the end result is a stunning looking ship and I would recommend it to all ship builders be it beginner or advance Cool
As you can see all the sails have been finished and the crew fitted to the deck . I like the one leaning on the beak head as it reminds me of a guy at work as he leans on things and doesn't do much LOL . The rope coils have been added to the belay pins and knightsheads Cool
I am really pleased with the way the furled sails have turned out as I have never tried this before Cool
Thanks again for following and the bril comments Cool see you soon with my next build .
Martyn

Congratulations on finishing your build, looks stunning.Drool Love
Rigging is very neat also I like the idea of furled sails, you don't see this often.


Have question about figures.
Can you share whery you get them?
I was trying to find figures for my San Francisco and practice some painting before I will start with Vasa but I cant find anything in 1/90 scale.
I know that your ship is 1/70 scale but maybe your provider will have something closer to 1/90

Kind regards,
Arek

BigGrin hi Arek and thanks for the comments Cool
The crew are from Red Box 16/17c British sailors in 1/72 scale
You could try HO figures for railways and adapt them as sailors for your San Fran
Cheers again Martyn

Another fantastic build I do like the furled sails and I know how hard it is to get the material to do what you want it to do.
Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!
