Definitely inspirational. Enough so, that I recently purchase the Airfix Bounty kit and The Anatomy of a Ship Book...but that rigging is scaring me death.




That is brilliant Stuart finish that one and then start a wooden Bounty, have three of those Anatomy of a ship books they are great.

Regarding rigging you should buy this book it is brilliant will be using it when I do the rigging on the Endeavour






It is full of pictures, here are a couple, this is just to show whats inside if this is not allowed please delete






Do have these two as well






I too have not done much rigging myself Stuart started on the Endeavour, 13 years ago :sad:  will be doing the Bluenose, I'am going to do as per Martain said, "do it in stages" :thumbsup:

I haven't started the plastic one, let alone buying a wooden one! Thanks for the references, will keep an eye on them.

I agree with Richard on the Lennarth Petersson book. I have his books for fore & aft and square sail. Deals with each part as a separate subject. The model version can only be a step forward.

On the subject of rigging, you could set the vessel where she would have a sails sent down. Thereby halving the required rigging. 

One further bit of advice. If this is your first venture into a full rigged ship don't get bogged down in detail.

Looking forward to seeing you progress.
