  1. Hello to all friends modellers ... Here is a short presentation of an ancient lady from the 16th century. She originally comes from Ragusa, a town - republic from the Coast of the Adriatic Sea. In the begining it would be nice to mention something about Ragusa, nowdays city of Dubrovnik : Some sources say that Ragusa was founded in the 7th century, named after a "rocky island" called Lausa, by refugees from Epidaurum (Ragusa Vecchia), a Greek city situated some 15 km to the south, when that city was destroyed in the Slavic incursions. Excavations in 2007 re
  2. Hello MSW, MarisStella has spent the last year or so upgrading our entire kit range with new packaging and some parts, but we still have a very small number of our older, original releases in stock. These don't cost quite as much as the upgraded versions and I thought I would offer them to members here at a reduced price. These are very limited, so it's 'first come, first served'. These kits are still good (excellent) quality and represent superb value for money and MarisStella knows you will not be disappointed. We are offering the following deals direct from our warehouse in N
  3. Maris Stella Ltd is pleased to announce the addition of the HMS Speedy, HMS Vensejo and HMS Sophie Brig-Sloops, in 1:48 scale, to its model ship kit line. Speedy and Vensejo have been heavily researched. HMS Sophie is our version of the fictional Brig-Sloop, representing a combination of the two, described in a novel by Patrick O'Brian. The Maris Stella kit version of HMS Speedy uses the sail plan, rigging, armament and flagging as of her original commissioning. To maximize authenticity, we have freshly designed all cannon, carronade and swivel guns for the three kits, each of the type, weight

  5. Hi Antony .... I was off the forum several days, sorry not to answering You, but here is the explanation about the Upgraded project and Retro project : ... We noticed a problem connected with the price and quality of our kits as well as the different skills between the modellers who are building them ... We were thinking for a while, observing different combinations and after a year we get to the solution : We decided to make two different equipped kits for each model... We decided to make new versions of the MarisStella kits, to make the better plans, to add more materials, photo
  6. Thanks Mr. Rick, this is an intermediate level model to build... This technique prepares the modeller to plank the hull in the single planking method... ... Now, here are some photographs of the mast and sails equipment...
  7. Congratulations Mr. Mike. The model turned out well, as it is told before... Thanks for the patience at some of the sequences... I hope it worth in the end... Bravo ! Regards, Zoran
  8. Hah good ! ... ok, I will try to explain: The drawing shows double turn knot at the rope that holds the yard (twice around the yard) this rope go upwards through the block and then down to the cleat at the mast... The thinner rope is the parrel. It tightens the first rope to the mast . The parrel rope goes to the same cleat to the mast...(this makes two different ropes) ... The parrel rope goes down to the cleat, not through the block ... So, my intention was to get You to understand the illustrations , but it is not hard to answer as well By the way, I see You understood the illustratio
