Hi Uwe,It is not my favourite time period, when this ship was sailing,, but I have to say, that this log is realy interesting - many thanks for sharing and "reactivating"
Yes can understand your point. I like to see them, interesting vessels, therefore I have also a lot of books of this period. Also the paintings of the de Veldes brothers...... but harder to build, especially because of the decorations and carvings.....but maybe with my new set of chisels, let us see.Hi Uwe,
Sovereign of the Seas, soleil royal, HMS Prince, Zeven Provincien etc etc. Definately my favorite time. During 18th century you see much more standardized ships compared to the 17th century.
Is it from Ab Hoving "Die Schiffe Abel Tasmans" with CD from Amsterdam Rijksmuseum ?I am investigating the possible scratch build with cad cam and cnc of a dutch flute (fluit) Zeehaen that Abel Tasman used to sail around Australia and visit New Zeeland ( called after the Dutch procincie Zeeland) So after my 18th century RC back to the 17th. I have a book and very detailed set of drawings of this vessel.
