I know you are on your new project Piet, are you coming back to this anytime soon?
The boat is 99% finished..... only need to ad the cables that run from the bow over the bridge to the aft ,
Tried several ways to do it but still not happy how it looks,it is not just threading a wire through the insulators,
i will figure it out (than i can start weathering )👍

I've noticed there are new products out there. Mig Ammo has various size rigging line targetting ship building and Modelkasten has some stretch wire.


Found a ship building forum that bragged about the metal wire producing a more natural sag to the lines.
At $25 for 5m, i'll wait for your report. 🍿
