ROPEWALK - SCALE ROPE MAKING TOOL
by MODEL SHIPWAYS
MAKE YOUR OWN SCALE RIGGING!
LASER-CUT BASSWOOD ROPEWALK
Put the master’s touch on your ship models with your own rope. The Ropewalk from Model Shipways lets you turn ordinary thread into realistic 3-strand scale rope quickly and easily. No complicated mechanics, bobbins, rails or trucks. Our Ropewalk has only two main parts – the gear head and the tail end. It lays up (twists) any thread or cordage into high quality rope in all the necessary lengths and diameter to fully rig your model.
Best of all, you’ll have a great time experimenting with different cordages to see what you get. You can make larger diameter lines with your Ropewalk, for larger scales, such as anchor hawsers, tow lines, shrouds and stays by starting with two, or even three strands. Also great for Western-motif kits such as stagecoaches or covered wagons & Civil War artillery.
