  1. Found this link on Reddit, looks like13 pages from a sketchbook have been reproduced. http://www.cherini.eu/etnografia/IND/index.html the root website doesn't translate to English but if you click on the hotlinks there is treasure: http://www.cherini.eu/and I do mean TREASURE, I have not seen so much information on delightful non-Western rigs before.
  2. As I say in introducing myself, I am trying tu build Chinese junk as my first model. I choos it because it seems simple to me (what a mistake), there is no bow, and different sails that looks not too complicate. Earlier, it passed few years I thinking about modelling, but always something happened, a job, some familiar things, and only spent a lot of time reading about it and collecting some free plans from net. We have not here possibility shops where can buy plans, specific wood for modelling and tools, and I know that have to improvize while building. Fortunatly, my grandfather was engraver, and left a lot of small hand tools for metal, specific knifes made before WWII for brass, copper, gold or silver, and I have to use it. I have great garage and workshop, but I decided to work in house, near my PC, also, there is wormer, and the winter is coming.. So, I have not kit complete, but I got lot of materials and Amati plans from one experienced expert here, and first choose very small corner in my room while my wife was very angry. I took the patrt from my office table and put it near the window with fantastic view to my flowers and trees. and.. I started in 21. may. First, I put the scellet without glue, just to watch how it looks like, is the laser cutting precisely. Even and me, nonexperiance amateur noticed that cutting was not good. Ribs 9, 10 and 11 were too deep, and going under the keel. But in plans there is just that dimensions, I compared? There is problem: So I started with improvisations. I Inserted small part a 5 mm long in slot 11, thinking what consequences will be at the end. But, I always have a little help from my assistent I do not know how many photos is limit to one post, and will be continue..
  3. A long time ago in a Modelshipworld forum far, far away ...I started a scratch build based on Amati's pirate junk. All went well and I was enjoying the challenge of a first scratch build until, until.... I used 17th century furniture to support the upper deck railings. I actually thought they looked rather neat, especially as I spent an ice age ensuring they were equidistant. Not so, said my mentors. Take them off and do it again. So after 6 years or so of muttering, I've done the deed, ripped out the old and replaced them with something more vernacular. So here's the restart. All comments more than welcome.
