  1. My fellow model shipwrights, I want to build a model of the Kalmar Nyckel (http://www.kalmarnyckel.org/), but apparently none exists. I lack the skill to build a wooden one from scratch. However, since I am going to crew her this year, I am absolutely champing at the bit to have a model of her. The Kalmar Nyckel (a pinnace) looks a lot like a galleon and is of that era, so I thought maybe a galleon could be modified to look like her. The Revell Spanish Galleon was out, since its aftercastle is too high and the stern itself has two balconies. The Golden Hind, however, looks pretty close. The plans of both are attached for comparison (My thanks to KeithW for the Kalmar Nyckel plans). The Kalmar Nyckel has a shallower draught, especially toward the stern. The wales up above the weather deck are entirely different, and the gratings are in different locations. The quarterdeck/poop (whatever you call those on a older vessel like this) is in a bit of a different location. The balcony on the stern is different, as well. It seems to me that all of this (except the draught, might have to live with that, I don't know) could be overcome with some sanding, cutting, and kitbashing. TL;DR: Can I use kitbashing, sanding, and cutting to make the Golden Hind into a presentable (though certainly not perfect) approximation of the Kalmar Nyckel? What do you folks think? Is this feasible? Do you all know of another kit that would work better?
  2. Does anyone know if there is a model kit of the Kalmar Nyckel? She's a lovely pinnace that I will be sailing on later this year, and I would love to make a model kit of her. Google has not found anything. I am not optimistic.
