All at Sea, Rigging Tutorial Video, Part Three - French & Spanish Running Rigging


This series of rigging tutorials concludes with a look at fixing running rigging on French and Spanish Napoleonic ships.


In this final video I demonstrate the fixing of running rigging to a frigate illustrating the difference to that shown in the video looking at the British rig. A little longer than the previous two, I have shown the method for each mast in detail which will hopefully make the process easier to follow.



If you intend using these guides to help you work on your own models you might find the rigging PDF tutorial I produced earlier a useful accompaniment - see the link below


Next up - More adventures in the land Vassal and Steve and my game of Washington's War, and a booe review looking at the naval war of the American War of Independence

    1. Thanks Greg. I think it might also help to remind me occasionally when I have a break from rigging and then need to relearn how I used to do it!

    1. Thank you Carlo.
      Well if you decide different, I hope the videos will help to get you started. The process can seem a bit daunting at first, but I have suggested to a friend recently to start with the brig model, with only two masts to practice on, its a good way to learn the technique.

      Cheers
