Use of a model: with this dramatic foto-shop-scenery the danish journal "Historie" illustrated the stranding of the "Printz Friderich" when her wreck was found in 2018.
(She ran aground in these minutes 240 years ago near the danish island Laesoe / Kattegat, 28th of September 11.00 p.m. Central European Time. 7 lives lost, round about 570 saved within the next days, the crew generated 8 additional babies the Laesoe priest remarked)
BTW: I am not sure whether this ist the right thread for my post, please excuse if so.View attachment 182007

Already some time ago, when I posted the last photos - this I will do asap.

Today I made a book review of a very interesting Book and Drawing set, showing the danish ship construction in the time of sails

DANSKE ORLOGSSKIBE 1690-1860,
Konstruktion og dekoration

by Bjerg, Hans Christian & John Erichsen

translation of the title:
Danish naval ships 1690 – 1860
Construction and Decoration

In this book in Volume I the work of the shipwright F.M. Krabbe, who was the designer of the Printz Friderich, is partly shown

and also in Volume II the beautiful decoration of the Printz Friderich, made by the carving artist of the shipyard of this time 1761 C.J. Mollerup, are shown
- these drawings are based on contemporary drawings

Here is the link to the Book Review / Look Inside of this beautiful danish book

SOLY-CANADA GOT MINE- BOOK ONE FREE. EL CAPI
Yes, Jimmy, that is/ was my dream, but too late now. Am now 75 and a well I know, this work has taken over 10 years. This apart, of all the special Tools as Lathe, Freaezer , Mashin saws etc. Thinks that I never had. Came to a Proxcone/ Dremel late 90, so what I have built was all pure crafting done. When I see some of the working/ tool rooms, I am not going jealous, only a bit sad, that when I was building hard 70-80TH.
all these things were not available. this apart From CAD and other computer programs etc. Newcomers have now so much info- maybe too much- that WE DID NOT HAVE T THAT TIME. The 1Th image is from the Book Holsten-DK and my first big build 1978- 1982- the Norske Love- a sistership to Prinz Federiech scale 1:72. all fittings, even deadeyes, bloks etc were a plastic. later on, I change some of them. there are mistakes with the sails but at that time no information. SORRY FOR THIS LONG STORY, but I see, that I am comming to the end.

MY BOOK FROM Holsten WENT TO Sicily, Italy AND A COPY TO OUR FRIEND IN NORWAY-AGAIN ALL FREE.

It is a wonderful work of art! I would spend hours admiring it if I could see it live!
Is there a monograph for sale somewhere?

Hello Giampy65,
no, there is no monograph of this ship.
The sources are from the rigsarkivet Kopenhagen and the krigsmuseet Kopenhagen (for example models of deckconstruktion, firehearth, powderroom, figurehead aso.).
Click in this thread #149 following and others or ask Thomas.Wilberg@me.com.
The enquieries took nearly two years.
Greetings
Kalliboot Karl I.
