Cannon Tackle II
- by willwilco On Oct 05, 2015 - 10:01 AM
Has anyone found a source for blackened or iron-looking eye bolts for rigging cannon?

I have tried to paint the brass-looking ones that came with my kit. The larger eye bolts seem to have turned out okay, but the really small ones are a pain.

I would love to find another color, other than the shiney brass ones.

I'm between projects but thinking about building a model of a working lobster boat. I know Blue Jacket has one but does anyone know of other kits out there?
