Hi All.

Here is the latest installent of pics. I've fitted the lower yard.
The instructions absolutely suck.... On the first pic you will see the rail and pillars at the bottom of the mast with the belay pins installed. WELL the instructions don't tell you too do them. Then when rigging you get a little drawing with the thread going to them . I had to rip it off then drill and put the pins in. And reinstall.
Rant Over..

hi Chris can i ask a favour?
can you take a few pictures showing the fore deck port an starboard....
in all the build mags that Ive got it shows the fore deck as being parallel to the main deck and keel ie flat, mine has a slight taper

Looking at the photo of the mizzen deck?. I am asking if your plan showed the handrail stepped as I did my San Fransisco II, or did you have a plan that shows it merging as you have done.
Regards the rigging instructions SUX I think is a better term. Anyway I don't think there is really a right or wrong way as I have seen quite a few variations of this ship, some have wooden tops others have conical metal tops some have been painted etc etc. I am posting a picture of my interpretation for your opinion.

Hi,

@ Farrabrass,
I chose to merge the rail as there was no other way for me too do it. The peices didn't fit etc. But have noticed that alot of builds have the stepBlushing .
With this being my first build, also not having or knowing anyone making this ship I had too guess on most things as the instructions weren't that forward. And with only getting them each month instead of getting all the instructions you couldn't plan ahead.

Here is the pic of the rigging plans of the belaying pins on the centre rail. But the main instructions don't even mention them.

@Captainalan,
I've taken this pic for you if it helps you, I am not sure what you meanConfused . The main deck and fore deck are parallel then the rear and poop deck slope up with the poop being steeper.EDIT>> Here is another pic yes the foredeck slope's down slightly you can see by the planks on the inner wall that they are straight where as the fore deck ones aren't parallel.BigGrin

Thanks Chris...

thanks Chris
the foredeck is the smaller deck at the Sharpe end LOL LOL LOL
i think my parts were cut wrong as all the skeleton pieces fitted perfect
but instead of being flat i have a slight slope of around 7 degrees

i don't know if you can see it properly but you can tell just by looking at the planking just how much it slopes oh well to late now to do anything about itConfused

Hi Magpie

I just got the first parts for the SF2. Looking at step 1 it shows the keel with a completely straight stern, but the actual keel has a small bit sticking out at the bottom. I have looked at yours and captain allan build, both of you have fitted part 5 above this small piece, but then step 3 shows that the bottom of part 5 touches the bottom of the false keel (again picture shows no bit sticking out). I just wondered if fitting it as you and the captain did causes problems later, or is it ok to go ahead and do it your way? If Tomick is reading this maybe you have come across this as well?

cheers bob
Come on you Jimmies

No need to reply, I did a dry fit and it can only go on the way you have it, I guess the pictures show an older version, or maybe the version supplied if you buy the complete kit elsewhere, I did see from your build you had a few problems with the crows nest thingies being different from other peoples,

Magpie, sorry to add this here too. I'm posting this in 2 other forums too.

When you bought this, did you pay once off for the whole kit? I'm really interested in getting this one
