just finished my scratch-built version of a dutch statenjacht from plans by amati. with the ship at 90% complete i discovered that the plans by amati were based upon a book and drawings that are now considered to be not historicaly correct ( mostly because of the stern quarter galleries ) and should not be trusted as accurate20210716_193244.jpg20210716_193500.jpg20210716_193337.jpg20210716_193212.jpg anyway that is why the ship shall remain nameless. it has already been sold at a discount .

It may not be historically accurate but it is pretty close. When I look at my Statenjacht Utrecht it is very similar. Yours is beautifully built. It is a nice model.

currently working on a scratch build of the hms sharke from mantua plans. they call it a cutter but it is actually more of a sloop, and i will rig her as a hybrid cutter/sloop. will post some pics in the ongoing project section soon.
