  1. This kit was provided for my YouTube channel as sponsorship from one of the channel members who wished to remain anonymous. I was offered a choice between two fairly well-established manufacturers. My attention was drawn to the Carrack model, because this is my passion: ships from Columbus’ time ... OVERVIEW KIT: RAGUSIAN CARRACK Manufacturer: MarisStella (Croatia) Scale: 1:59 (775 mm/30,5") Single plank-on-bulkhead hull. All visible elements are made of solid walnut wood (laser cut). The bulkheads are of plywood. Detailed instructio
  2. Hi all, As I draw to an end with Ethalion, I was thrilled and surprised to find that in these somewhat uncertain times of COVID, the model I ordered from Croatia arrived a day early. So - I thought I'd put an initial post in what looks like being another build log that will take some time. I need to finish my HMS Ethalion build first, so there may be a few weeks delay to getting started, but then we'll be up and running. What I can do in the meantime is give a few first impressions of both MarisStella and their kit, and once I've read the book about what happened to B
  3. Welcome to my build log of the Stefano. When I saw the 2 current logs for the Stefano I was captivated by the beautiful lines of the ship and decided about a year ago that I would like to try to build it. Now is the time to start. I'll dispense with the kit contents photos. They can be seen both in Don Robinson's log and in Zoran's log. The contents of the kit seem to be of top quality. As noted in the other logs the plans are extensive and excellent. There is lots to be learned from building this kit. A side note for some of th
  4. Good Morning All, So, I bit the bullet and ordered this kit from MarisStella. I couldn't believe how quickly it came. I ordered it on a Wednesday and it was on my doorstep the following Tuesday. It was shipped with DHL, which I had heard was the best courier for international shipping and I can see why they have a good reputation. This kit was expensive, especially when adding in shipping, duty, taxes and all in Canadian dollars. I have not looked at the VISA bill, so I don't know what the actual total was and my wife and I have tacitly agreed not to discuss it. I don't normal
  5. Hey howya goin all, this is my first build log of a ship but not my first ship that I've built. Carrack probably took her name from Arabic word karraka, which means light boat (Carack, carraque, kraeck, Carraca). this is a big sailing ship in use from 14th to the 17th century, designed for transporting goods. Carrack appeared in Venice in the early 14th century, but almostat the same time began to be built in the city of Dubrovnik (Ragusa) as the largest cargo ships in the Adriatic. In the 15th century Carrack has spread from Adriatic, the Mediterranean Sea and at the end of the 1
  6. 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
  7. Thursday 19 October 2017 A warm welcome to all users of this forum. A few days ago, I received from Zoran Pavlovic, the kit manufacturer, the material I ordered for my next model, a project I want to manage in the period of time I will spend in Tuscany. The kit is produced by a Croatian company, MARISSTELLA of Split, founded in 2008. I found it on the Modelshipworld forum where Marisstella is present with a advertisement banner. The company has a remarkably interesting product catalog, with typical boats of the Adriatic Sea. He is the same producer of the kit of my lates
  8. Sometimes I feel like I need a new build like I need a hole in the head. Other times it's nice to walk away from one build and get some distraction with another. Trajta is my first Marisstella kit and I have their Cog on the shelf. I'm not one to take lots of pix of the box and contents, actually the Marisstella boxes are blue on the outside and do not show a pic of the boat. Here's one (a pic of a pic) and you can go to the Maristella site to see more about this boat. Lot's of good pix and a very good write up on the history. As I alluded to, this is my 2nd build in p
  9. Santa Maria by Pierre Tessier - Maris Stella - 1:60 This is a Christmas gift from my son, I promised myself I would finish the Batelina before starting this one. Now that my first build is complete and my shop is clean I can begin my second build and build log here on MSW. I must mention that I was pleasantly surprised when I met Zoran from MarisStella, here online. He saw that I was building the Batelina and noticed I posted that I had the Santa Maria on the shelf. He got in touch with me and mentioned that he was in the process of re-writing the build manuals for the latter, and o
  10. 1:72 Ragusian Galley 18thCentury MarisStella Available from MarisStella for €147 plus shipping The Republic of Ragusa was a maritime republic centred on the city of Dubrovnik (Ragusa in Italian, German and Latin; Raguse in French) in Dalmatia (today in southernmost Croatia) that carried that name from 1358 until 1808. It reached its commercial peak in the 15th and the 16th centuries, before being conquered by Napoleon's French Empire and formally annexed by the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1808. It had a population of about 30,000 people, out of whom 5,000 lived within
  11. Greetings shipbuilders, Following is my build log for the Brazzera from MarisStella. I think it will be rather short, at least for the beginning because I didn't take many pictures and because it seems to be well covered by Zoran in his news from MarisStells log and Don in his Trabaccolo log. The Trabaccola is very similar - the Brazzera is a bit shorter and has only one mast. This kit has beautifully prepared materials. It is not an easy kit to build but I am enjoying it. If anyone has comments or suggestions I very much welcome them. Regards, Ian
  12. Saturday, October 22, 2016 - Introduction During the end of last week I issued on the internet an order for a kit of a new ship model. Yesterday I regularly received the package from the manufacturer and now I am going to open a new shipyard that I believe will keep me happily busy for the next months. Knowing myself I think I'll need, excluding unforeseen situations, a whole year to finish it, but this is just a raw idea. My thinking is that the model I chose was greatly illustrated with a plethora of images in the topic "Italian boats (and not) in the Adriatic Sea". Got
  13. Welcome to my official first build log and first ship build. After careful consideration, and thanks to many of you, I have decided on the Batelina as my first ship build. I was told this would be a good choice to get me going, so, I picked up this kit from Rick at Modeller's Workshop. He also hooked me up with Zoran from MarisStella, both are really nice guy's, going out of there way for the hobby. Now to the kit itself, I noticed how nice a quality the wood was, properly bundled, no warping whatsoever. The laser cut plywood parts are equally nice. The step by step manual looks complete an
  14. This is going to be a great new project for the kit producer... model is 1221mm over all, 1:63... She was 52m long on the deck...
  15. It has been a few years since I have started a build log or worked on a model ship. There are many things I will need to re-learn. I noticed the ad banner for Marisstella Models on Model Ships World's home page and found this model of a Ragusian Carrack. I emailed the company, and Zoran Pavlocic' replied. The process went smoothly. I ordered and paid by PayPal, and 12 days later the mailman dropped off the package. The model box was packaged inside a sturdy cardboard box. All the material is top quality. I'm very impressed. The sails have already been stitched.
