How do I make effective looking ratlines in 1:700?

Hi Jim

Gold Medal Models has an excellent railing set:
GOLD PLUS ULTRA-FINE RAILING (1/700)

as White Ensign Models:
lWEM 1/700 Super Fine Rails & Ladders(Reference #PE 795)

As for Ratlines, as far has I know you have two choices:
1 - Peter Hall's Atlantic Models ratlines
2 - GMM Titanic set

Hope this helps
Cheers,
Rui

PS: How was the model contest for you? Just curious

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a ratline? Is it the same as a jackstay?
