I’ve gotten fairly facile with some added details like railings, and I do think it’s worth the extra time. The rigging also adds a sheen of slightly more realism, though the extent of rigging I am willing to do and the skill with which I do it amounts only to a “suggestion” of the actual wires the ship would have. Fine with me!
