Rigging Period Ship Models: A Step-by-Step Guide to the Intricacies of Square-Rig

Step-by-Step Guide to the Intracies of Square-Rig
The rigging of period ship models is arguably the most complex task which any modeller has to take on. The very scale of the work is daunting. An eighteenth-century man-of-war boasted mile upon mile of rigging, over 1000 blocks and acres of canvas. To reduce this in scale and yet retain an accurate representation is, indeed, an awesome undertaking.

The author has drawn over two hundred detailed diagrams which show clearly how each seperate item of both standing and running rigging is fitted to the masts, yards and sails; belaying plans are included and knots and fastenings are also depicted. Whether a modelmaker needs to rig a whole ship or just requires information on one aspect, it is all here
