RIGGING BLACK.012x10yrds

  • $ 5.99

Item Number: MS1203

Rigging line for model ships, black nylon twist (tarred).

Originally made from European, Russian, and American hemp and sisal. By the mid-19th century, lighter, stronger and more able Manila hemp rope was used. Both standing and running rigging was treated with Stockholm tar, a dark brown pine tar derivative, as preservative. Standing rigging took on a much darker color than the running rigging because it was treated more often.

Black nylon twist / .012"x30' / .28mm x 9.2m.
