Fore Mast Running Rigging

I have been away from progressing on my Ship while I was morning the loss of my dog Toby.

I’ve finally finished the Main Mast rigging and am now starting on the Fore Mast.

I have started using Translucent White Glue to Fix these loops and knots instead of Superglue because Superglue makes them go too hard and brittle. I just snapped a Block just now and had to redo the entire thing.
