1st Rate Bowspirit Rigging

I’ve been racking my brain on a representative way to perform the width-wise bowspirit rigging considering that 1st rates have both a spirtsail mast and top spiritsail mast. Unfortunatly it seems most of the photos from Warlord for the 1st Rate models don’t clearly show this part of the ships, so its hard to determine how this is really being done. From what I can tell, all other ships that have just a single bowspirit mast can be rigged similar to what is shown within the rulebook for a frigate.
I suspect the Warlord models pictures just had a single rigging rope around the parimeter of the two masts, which I felt left a lot of empty space; so I was curious how others within the community have tackled this. After sometime studying photos of HMS Victory I settled on the attached:
