Hello everyone, my name is Artem. I'm from St. Petersburg (Russia). Since 2011 I have been keen on assembling models of sailboats from the sets, and now also by building models on archival drawings.
Immediately I apologize for my English - it is no. The translation was made using Google translator. But I will try to answer your questions to the extent possible.
Let me introduce one of the sets of the Russian manufacturer Melania (Master-Korabel) - the schooner "Polotsk" in 1788. Scale 1:72.
This schooner is more a collective image, because drawings of this particular schooner, unfortunately, did not survive. Nevertheless, the manufacturer tried to take into account as much as possible all the elements characteristic for this period.
Also, at once I make a reservation that I have introduced many additions / improvements to the set.
1. practical things (90%) from a pear;
2. All the decor is made of wood;
3. ropes themselves - two-color (dark gray and gray);
4. decking of the pear deck (also available from other material);
5. No sails. Percal is enclosed. Sewed with the help of his wife;
6. trial innovation: imitation of nailing barhouts, outer sides and bulwarks. Barhouts will be divided into 2 (which is correct);
7. Also a trial innovation: imitation of joints of skin and barhouts. On the sides an ordinary joint, on the barrows locks (as on the waterwheels);
8. Another bundle of guns. I will do not only trousers, but also small 2-pulley blocks.
9. Instead of brass nagels (they are, by the way, very cute), they will be wooden. I'll finish them myself;
10 possible material: pear.
I assembled the model in April 2016 for 15 months. She took part in 3 prestigious competitions in Russia (2 gold and 1 silver medal). And it was sold.

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.
The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.
The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
