This Blog is about building model fishing ships and everything what has to do with it. Most builds are done by me but when not I will mention.
I hope you will have fun reading and watching my blog and if you like please leave a comment.

Hello folks

I started to make some rigging for the model because there are a lot of blocks on this ship. The first ones to build are the jumperblocks. These are used to lift parts of the nets. Their shapes makes it possible to lift the nets, chains shackles, hooks and other stuff without damage.

The housings cut out of thin brass sheet.

And then the rolls. I made these on my small lathe. First I formed a toolbit/chisel and then I made the form

It is now one year ago that I recieved the drawings for this model and soon after that I started building. It all takes some more time than I planned but the results are more important to me.

No building activity tommorrow  because I hope to visit the Intermodellbau in Dortmund.

Kind regards Kees
