That's quite a rakish look to this vessel, looks like she was built to be fast. Is it some type of fishing vessel? The sail arrangement is kind of unusual too. Curious as to what those two horizontal wood bars on the sides are for. I also noticed the split wood logs on the floor. Hope they aren't for making a campfire on board!
Looks to be well deserving of the gold.

Very nice. Excellent detail. A model that inspires and sets an excellent goal.
Thank you all for your kind words.
You're right about the shape of the hull...She used to be a fast trade coastal vessel of the Northeast Aegean sea, transporting any kind of goods. Her rigging is the typical sacoleva shape.
Those side wooden bars used to be placed so that side canvas can be set up, extending this way the side of the hull -protecting a deck cargo.
Thank you for your comment.

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.
