"Bluenose II"
arbee46 (BC. Canada)
Firstly, I enjoyed building the model up to the time I started on the rigging and the rigging of the sails. Their are no instructions in the books ( Poor to start with ), for any running rigging; ie; NO topping lifts on any boom; NO Quarter lifts; NO Sheet Lines of any kind; NO Footropes or Stirrups: NO Spring Stay; NO Boom Tackle on foremast Boom, or on Mainmast Boom; Etc, Etc, Etc The kit was 12 part # 220 Medium Brass Rings Short and short Double Blocks. BUT; the biggest was that EVERY SAIL IN THE KIT IS TOO LARGE FOR THE MODEL The Main sail is 2 1/4 inches too long to go up the mast. I've built the original Bluenose (Model Shipways Kit from Model Expo) and could not believe waht I was seeeing in this representation. Why in the world would the kit designer connect the Jumbo Jig Boom to the foremast with a Yoke???? EXTEMELY DISSATISFIED WITH THIS MODEL.

"Bluenose II kit."
Droakman
I liked this kit a lot. The instructions are a bit lacking but if you've done some ships you can pretty much figure it out. I really like the completed result and the eife liked it enough that it's on display in our bed room. A challenge no doubt but well worth the effort.
