This is the separate Masting and Rigging Course for the USF Constitution. This course may be used with other kits besides the Model Shipways kit. It consists of 6 chapters and covers the complete masting and rigging of the ship including the construction of masts and yardarms, standing rigging, and running rigging.
The course not only teaches the modeler how to make the masts and yards and add the standing and running rigging to them, but also teaches the modeler how to read a set of kit plans to determine belaying points and such.
An optional photo CD is also available with the course which shows all of the photos taken when the masts and yards were constructed and the standing and running rigging were added to them. Several video clips are also included that demonstrate how to seize the various lines.
The course comes on a CD. The chapters can be printed out by the customer and put in a 3 ring binder, or you can take the CD to an office supply store such as Staples or Office Max and have them print the chatpers for you.

The optional Photo CD contains all of the original photos taken when the model was built by Bob. Photos on this optional CD are much larger than those that appear in the course chapters and can be viewed on your computer screen showing greater details than may appear on the printed pages. The Photo CD cannot be purchased separately.
