Very nice model, also these smaller vessels have a lot of charm. I bought the book recently and received it last week. I think I will build the fluyt Langewijk from the drawings in combination with the data of the Zeehaen.
I love the books of Ab Hoving, if you don t have it yet his Witsen book is also fantastic with a great set of drawings for Witsens pinas.

Thank you. I plan to do several others of that book (17th century Dutch merchant ships).
I have Witsen's English version andI have learned a lot from that book.
Shell-first is described in the following books, Witsen's, Ships of Abel Tasman and the 17th century Dutch merchant ships.
This gives me much information to attempt to build shell-first.

The Fluit, Zeehaen is not the only Fluit I will built. There are others.
