The model represents a Gr. traditional vessel known as "Tserniki of Mykonos Isl.” rigged with a "Half-lateen sail".
It's was a version of standard "Tserniki" vessel but with a raised stern post.
The "half-lateen sail” rigging for some ones was considered also as "Sakoleva” rigging, although there are differences.
It was a small merchant and fishing vessel at early of 19 century and can be seen in old photos of Cyclades Islands.
Scale: 1:24 - Length: 60cm - Width:13 cm - Height: 55 cm
Superb model. I'll assume the builder is a professional modeler. Museum-quality, particularly the attention to detail on the rigging. All of the wood tones are excellent; I don't like bright white hull painting myself as I find it too distracting and not faithful to the actual tallow colors of the era (before coppering). Aside from this niggling, only one other question: what happened to the yards?
I'd LOVE to build a 1:26 scale 17/18th-C Royal Navy ship!
