Revell's 1/56 Civil War Blockade Runner America


Recommended Posts

This has been a long project for me going on a couple of years.The plastic part of course was easy but I ordered rigging blocks of wood from "His Models" overseas along with the wooden deck.The deck went down easy enough but you have to rig the rope/steel around the blocks I figured being the 1860's steel blocks rigging/straps would of been pretty common.I evidently developed a system for this process and commenced to rigging some 100+ blocks(not all will be used) still have more to attack to the foremast then to the main mast.Once the planes burn me out again back to this one will commence.;)
