  1. Hello everyone. I'm starting build log of bracera (brazzera) traditional croatian coastal vessel. Scale is 1:20 and plans are from 1981 - Tehnodidakta, Pula. It's pretty simple vessel and maybe ideal for beginners as I am I don't know how fast will be this build because my table saw proxxon is broken and it's on service-reconstruction almost for about 5 month. I use all blocks and strips of wood and improvise as much as i can till i get my saw. I can't make a planks for hull, deck etc... Wood i will use is domestic pear and cherry. Thank you all and suggestions, comments etc. are welcome. Parts on paper Parts for cut on wood Glued That's combination of pear and wood. I used only flax oil. I think it will be nice combination - not to big contrast.
  2. Just started a new boat project. After seeing a photo of a small Brazzera with two lateen masts on Veniceboats.com (http://www.veniceboats.com/brazzera.htm), I had to build one! I have not yet found much historical information about Brazerras rigged this way, but there are several plans for single masted boats available. My model will be fictional, based on the type. A ten meter boat was chosen based on the only photo I could find, from Veniceboats.com. The length of the boat was determined and scaled off the people in the photo, and a comparison to photos of a single masted, 9-meter Croatian boat, "Our Lady of the Sea". The "Our Lady of the Sea" is a modern replica of an 18th century boat. I place the photo of my model in the late 19th century, and plan to make it in Italian ownership (maybe a sponge fishing boat?)... Any info or feedback on Brazzeras, especially those rigged with two lateen masts, would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Well, the local shop didn't have the kits I had my eyes on, so I did some research on the web and found a website that sells their own kits in my hometown. The kit I finally bought is a type of 19th century coastal vessel from the Adriatic sea called Bracera or Brazzera and is based on a plan from Tehnodidakta-Pula from the 80's. It comes with bulkheads and centerboard laser cut and Linden and Beech wood planks for the hull and deck. For the second planking there is a bunch of veneer strips, but the name of the wood eludes me. The fittings are from Mantua and the ropes are polyester. Beside the building materials, the kit comes with general instructions of how to make a wooden vessel but not specifically the Bracera. For that, you get the plans and a CD with images of a completed boat.
