  1. Hi Scott, A Dutch ship build by someone from Australia It looks good from what i can see. I know from others who build it are saying that it is not an easy build. But from what i can see in your signature it is not the first one. So i have faith in you that can bring this to a good end. I'm now typing on my I pad but when I' m on the big computer ,i will bring the popcorn machine. Sjors
  2. Hi Donn, Welcome again To answer your question. I think Caldecraft is a little bit better. With DeAgostini ( parts work ) you've got bamboo as planking wood. I change that right away with the planks from Caldecraft. But the pictures with De Agostini are better then form Caldecraft and at the other hand. The drawings ( 9 sheets with a drawing of everything ) is better from Caldecraft. I think every manufacturer has his own good and not so good things in the kit. I wish that there was a manufacturing that put all good things together. My next build will maybe be something from OcCre. I always love to have 2 builds at the same time. You can change. But with Occre there is a lof of metal parts like gun carriages and gun port lids. When you don't like that you can change that for wooden things. A great example of that is from Theo, he is building the Santissima Trinidad from OcCre. Take a look at his build log ( you have to search for him ) and you will see what I mean. Long story but I hope you understand what I mean. Sjors
  3. That statue on the bow is that for real ?????? Nice dog, daughters and Admiral Or should the be the other way around...... Say Hi from me to those woman . And give the dog ( name? ) a bone from me. Sjors

  7. Thanks John & Anton, @ John, The builds that are finished are no longer in our house. 2 of them are by the neighbors when we are moving to another city. 2 of the ships are at a kindergarten. They just want to show the children how a sailing ship a long time ago looks. Aggy is still in the house but maybe she goes to my company. They want to put her at the office in the garage. We have to otherwise we have to move a much bigger house. @ Anton, Always good to see you around. I know that life can be in the way. Don't tell me about it...... And still at sea. I'm still on the road I have to take a look if I can find your Sots. I don't see her in your signature..... Sjors
  8. Thanks Sam, Sometimes it is looking if I have to damage something to see if I can repair it...... Strange! Sjors
