After having fastened the rope around the pillar, a knight or a belaying pin, it is necessary to leave a length of rope, to coil on the deck like the real ships. For a good realistic circle of rope it is necessary to stiffen to maintain the position on the deck. We recommend white glue, fully clear after drying. Place on the wood a quantity of glue in proportion to the scale of the model and to the size of the rope, as indicated on the photo. Then with the help of a tweezers, round the rope, pressing the circles inside the glue. When all the rope is rolled up, clean the glue with a wet cloth, to remove the excess of glue. Leave it drying for half an hour and then the effect will be very realistic.
