With the frigate's hull painted and electronics installed I've been able to get on with putting the masts on.
I've been more extensive with the mast structure than I have with my previous ships and have been trying to get it closer to reality. With that in mind I designed my own fighting tops for the fore and main masts. These are an option in the Blood and Plunder frigate and can hold 4 models each, which I'm pleased to say mine do, just!
I also managed to get the standing rigging completed.
Next it's on to the ratlines and futtock shrouds. I like how it looks so far so much that I'm concerned I might mess it up when I try these, but I'll see. It's easy enough to remove any mess I make and re-do the shrouds.
