Rigging was adjusted and tape was used to apply tension to the lines. With the lines secured in this way, a drop of CA glue was used to hold each line in place, and the excess material was cut off.
At last everything is coming together. The first sail I attached was the jib. In the picture, you can also see how I pre-laid a number of rope coils around the masts. I hope that I can secure the lines from above in such a way that they appear to connect to the rope coils.
I made sails!
I was a bit disappointed with the loose stitching and wobbly edges of the kit-provided sails, and wondered if I could do better. In the picture below, the originals are above and my replacements are below.
