Fixed Blocks by Patrick Sand

A point frequently missed, or merely simplified, by modelers are the fixed blocks that are imbedded in the side of a ship. These are sheaves through which various lines lead inboard to where they are belayed. Patrick Sand likes to think outside the box, and he will explain how he approached the fabrication of these often overlooked fittings, which are more complex than you might think. This subject has never been discussed at one of our meetings, and should make for a most interesting presentation. Proceedings will begin on Wednesday, September 16th, at 7:00 PM, but you will be able to log on as early as 6:30 PM. Be on the lookout for your Zoom invite, which will be sent to you by no later than September 15th. Hope you can join us!
