Hey, i need to work out how to rig this once its painted, i have no idea how the sails should be layed out??

There is a mast to go on sticking out the front at a 30 degree angle or so (no idea what its called), and i cant work out whether it should have one mainsail on the back mast and a triangle one from the front spar up to the foremast or what???

Any advice would be appreciated.

I'll do paper strips on top of the sails to roll around the masts, nice looking ship, scratchbuilt?

it comes from here:

I have bought a few bits from them as well as the ship, and its all really good.
A bigger ship will be next i reckon.

I'd look here first.

If you are using it for games I wouldn't go too gun-ho on the rigging.  Hands and minis tend to catch on rigging with less than wonderful results.

Oh and remember NOT to glue the masts to the ship. Never do that unless you are just going to look at the model for the rest of its life.
