The sails are sewn, as determined US regulations that were based on English regulations. Templates sails I used from the book Anatomy of The Ship - The 44 gun frigate USS Constitution, "Old Ironside". In this book are also displayed drawings, and can be found on my website.
Details that are used on offered sewed sails:
- Upper bend sails is in a standard way larger than the side and bottom. Exceptions are fore course, main course and topsails wherein the lateral reinforcing strips tapering towards the top.
- Fore course, main course and the topsails are strengthen by "Middle bands" - central strips. "Buntline cloths" are sewed from the lower edge of the sail, from places where the sail ropes were fastened - Buntline.
- There is strengthening at the site of reef ropes fastening so called "Reef band". Those on the sails several, depending on the number of reefs on sail.
- Topgalantsails, spritsails corse and topsails and other smaller sails are lined in the corners for strengthen.
All the aforementioned sails strengthening and linings are from the front side.
- There are only linings from the back on topsails (so called “Mast cloths“). These linings prevent wear and tear during chafing sails and Mast Top.
- Staysails and Gibb sails are reinforced at the corners always from the right side when looking at the ship from stern as determined by regulations. Simultaneously staysails with vertical front edge are strengthened along the entire vertical edge.
The last picture displays a set of flags specified for this model. Also be ordered separately, see flags!
I believe that these sails beautify your model.
