Hello Pete, basically like the real one, just a bit simpler :-)

First I take a thin needle and still sharpen the point up. Then I push the needle through the thread until it is half in ...

Image

... and only then I put the loose end through the eye. Saves thread like this ;-)

Image

Just then I pull the needle through. Afterwards I repeat just a bit underneath, but coming from the opposite direction.

Image

Needle half way through, thread through the eye and pull.

Image

Then save with some glue and cut with very sharp and pointed scissors.

Image

And you are done :-)

For very thin threads I use a slightly rounded edge - here a empty barrel for blanc DVDs - to fix the thread a bit. Slight stretching it with two fingers of the left hand and then the point of the needle in the right angle :-)

Awesome. I can see this technique will be useful on the rigging of WW1 biplanes too, where the cables are spliced. ( my other modelling passion). Regards, Pete in RI

In real life this is called a ‘yarn splice’, at least that’s how it translates from German. I learned about it, when I took sailing lessons in the early 1970s and then included it into my modelling skill set :cool_1:

Its always great to have friends that keep an open eye and give valuable hints. Morgan from MSW helped me so much already and here came his updates. The bolster of the anchor lining was to be extended more to the front. Possibly to have the possibility for someone to stand there if the catting needed an action from there. And the small flap on top of the carronade. Most carronades had ports that were higher than the normal ones. As the solid bulwark was not high enough that was an easy way to protect the wood. Thank you tons Gary!

Image

So the bolster needed a good base to adjust the height ...

Image

... and the extension was fitted.

Image

With a lil´bit of color it looks like it was already always there.

Image

And the flap was an easy Task to be fittet :-)

Image

And then we took the chance to go and see some modeler mates ...

Image

All the best, DAniel

Morning all. Yesterday I started back at page one reading through this again, and got to the section on ropes. Looking at the comparison pictures for before and after the home-made rope, there is no doubt, I need to get a ropewalk. Will check out the links to the various types of thread and see what there is for videos on you tube on how to do it. Regards, Pete in RI
