Masts On VaS Ships

Postby JollyJackTar » Mon Jan 27, 2014 5:26 pm

Does anyone have any tips on assembling the masts on such ships as Ajax and Achilles? I've found it so, so fiddly! There must be a simple way without the frustration levels I'm experiencing. Ajax is done but Achilles is a real pain and is still defeating me.
Hopefully future releases will have one piece castings like with Exeter.

Tweezers, the sort you squeeze to release so they will hold stuff easily was about the only way I managed it.

Also gel superglue so you have 10 seconds or so to nudge it, failing that get it balanced without glue and use liquid superglue to draw itself into the join.

Pain but looks good once done.
