    Thank you all for your kind words. Dave. 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. Thanasis
  7. It's a scratch built model at 1:24 scale, of a small double ended vessel (Tserniki type) which used to be built in Lesbos Island. It was used for coastal trading, often rigged with a sacoleva sail (sprit sail).
  8. Hi Kostas. Although we didn't meet each other in that contest, I've been there and I saw your model from close. It is exelent. Congratulation for your prize. Keep on the good work. Thanasis

    Do you have animals to 'help' you build?

    This Summer ended for me, with two losses.. Some broken blood vessels, cost me the loss of about 30 percent of my left eyesight. But more important is that because of cancer, I have lost my beloved modeling partner... For the moment, I'm not in the right mood to start ship modeling. I wish health to you and your pets. Thanks
  10. Hi Nails. I would be ungrateful if I stayed still silent... I didn't dare to make any comment until now, thinking that it would be like if I was judging you on every step of you built. And I don't have the right since I'm not even close to your level. So, you have built a beautiful model that has been created through an inspiring modeling school for all of us. Congratulations Thx
