Another Dutch fluit

Since my small collection of fluits (and some more ship types) left me for a new life in the Archaeological Museum Huis van Hilde in Castricum, Holland, I felt the strong urge to create another one. My house without a fluit seems too empty and cold :-).

Here it is. As always, the build of the paper hull was a breeze, took no more than 3 weeks, but the rigging is another story. It's long and demanding and I would surely skip the whole proces if not for the incredible reward of looking at a model that suddenly came to live.

I hope you like it as much as I do.



Love it!  I had your Dutch merchant ships book and can’t wait to build one once my skill level improves a bit.  Thanks for all the research and resources on these beautiful ships!
