Hi, I am attempting to make the windlass for my Fluit, Zeehaen 1639. I made one but it is off on one side, so I want to make a new one. I make them by hand using a small planer, carving tools, knives, files, home made punches and sand paper. The first one is from walnut and want to stick with that wood as I have a lot of that and easy to cut. The easy part is making 8 sides with a plane and then it becomes a challenge. 1st attempt Original plan (sorry about the measurement scribbles) Question. Is it better to make separate segments and then glue them together or one piece ? Has someone else done this by hand and are there any other posts on MSW about this? All advise is appreciated. Thanks, Marcus
Hello Everyone. I recently decided that for my next model I wanted to build a Dutch Fluyt, specifically Abel Tasman's ship the Zeehaen. During my research into this topic I have come across two books and sets of plans that look quite promising. These are: The Ships of Abel Tasman Author(s): Ab Hoving & Cor Emke, introduction by Peter Sigmond Year: 2000 Publisher: Verloren ISBN: 9065500871 Pages: 144 pages Plans: 40 sheets of plans and CD-ROM for the Zeehaen and Heemskerck 17th Century Dutch Merchant Ships Aurthor(s): Ab Hoving, Plans by Cor Emke Year: 2014 Publisher: SeaWatch Books ISBN: 9780990404118 Pages: 152 Plans: 24 sheets of plans for 10 different ship types. I have already seen Marc's (flying_dutchman2) review of these two books and plans on Model Ship World, which can be found in the links below: 17th Century Merchant Ships The Ships of Abel Tasman I was wondering however if anyone could enlighten me as to any differences between these two books and their coverage of the Zeehaen? I would prefer to purchase 17th Century Dutch Merchants Ships as I certainly wouldn't mind the additional ships, however if it's coverage is significantly less detailed than the Ships of Abel Tasman then obviously I'd prefer the latter. Thanks
