|Once in a while what I call a “utility” photoetch offering will come along, one that is generic in nature and could prove to be very useful. This new photoetch set from L’Arsenal is one such “utility” set.|
|The rigging set is comprised of a series of rings in two
styles. The Style A ring is a loop attached to a rod and are used
as an attachment point on decks and superstructures. Simply drill
a tiny hole and insert the rod with some CA into the hole to fasten it.
The Style B ring is a loop attached to a tab and to be used on yardarms.
Clip the attachment tab and glue it to the yardarm.
The packet comes with 2 stainless steel frets each comprising of 74 Style A rings and 32 Style B rings for a grand total of 148 Style A rings and 64 Style B rings. Stainless steel is a good choice for the rings because it makes them stronger attachment points.
This set would be a good one to have in your tool kit and at 2.95 Euros (about $3.25 US) it is inexpensive and a very good value.
