  1. It's been a while since my last post. But I've made some sails now, and started the rigging. Some hatches got damaged, but I'll fix those later. Some pictures.
  2. Hi Zappto, I’ll make them half-wrapped, then most details will be visible on both rigging and the ship itself.
  3. Thanks Zapto! I enjoyed watching your Friesland as well. You did a great job.
  4. I've been building this weekend quite a bit. And I ordered sails from Kolderstok. They're actually for the Zeven Provincien, but that is the same type of ship, and the size matches as well. So with a few adjustments I can use these.
  5. Some time ago, I noticed that the front of the ship didn't fit properly. I decided to rebuild it a bit. See below pictures. The red arrows show that that part is a bit too low.
  6. Hi, In addition, this is a link where you can see the Batavia and walk in 3D on the decks of the Batavia, just like in Google Streetview. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=8MMqvWkQQe8 Alex
  7. Thanks Scott, I've used furniture wax (dark oak) for the hull. I also used it for the Half Moon, and there I made it shiny. This time I didn't polish it, which gives it a weathered look indeed. I didn't put all the nails yet, still working on that. I'll double check the cannons... althouth I think I took it into accout 7 years ago when building the hull. Alex
