Mast Ropes...

Some photos of the flags and ropes being added to my model. The Africa Mercy is registered in Valletta, Malta, and thus flies the Maltese cross on her aft mast. My model is depicting the Africa Mercy during her 2011 Field Service to Sierra Leone - hence the Sierra Leone flag in the forward mast.
