Quoted TextAlso need to do some reading on how the rigging is done, as the instructions do not give a good visual on how it is installed.
Nice to see the 'Mini Me' of the kit I am building
Here is the rigging diagram from the 1/35th scale kit. Not that clear but might be enough to help you
In your scale, it would be unlikely that you would have a defined weave in the rope, so you could get away with nylon thread in lieu of cotton string. That might overcome the fluffing if the white glue/water doesn't work out (it usually depends on the quality of the thread. An alternate to that is ship rigging - Quality ones have little fluff.
Hope to see the finished product soon.
Great, thanks Peter! This would surely be of help. Yeah I was thinking of a nylon thread as well, maybe a fishing line too? Anyways will look for something suitable. If all else fails the fallback is the one that came with the kit. Cheers, Tat
