Here is the link but sadly out of stock currently as with most things at the moment

Kind Regards

You could also find a local laser cutter who could do the work. It will be a little more expensive because the cost lies in setting up the machine with the pattern, not the cutting.

Being new to ShipsofScale, I subscribed a few days ago, and it immediately pay's out. The built of my 'Sergal Sovereign of the Seas' is pretty much halfway and I was really worried how to continue with the sails and rigging. John McKay's book about the Sovereign of the Seas 1637 seems to tell it all. I'm a happy man!

Maarten I looked at the transom in the Lely portrait,the planking lines are in an arc,if the transom was flat,these would be straight in a diagonal fashion.That is how I reached the decision.

Kind Regards

That is the same reason that I opted for the ‘round tuck’ on my SOS. There is definately a curvature to the planks in the Lely Portrait. Below is my version of the round tuck.
