Ratlines, deadeyes, and assorted related parts–INSTALLED SIR!
Maybe the injection-molded ratlines and shrouds ARE an abomination, on some level. But for me and my ilk, it’s the difference between a model that gets finished and displayed and one that sits on the shelf of doom–never to be completed.
I’m not a ship-modeler. Not now. Probably not ever. But those injection-molded shrouds and ratlines will allow me to have a ship model on my fireplace mantel, and that’s what this particular game is about.
Now, men–ON TO RIGGING THE SAILS—-AND VICTORY!!!
