  1. ***OcCre - Cazador Jabeque / Xebec 1750*** Hello my friends, it's been a while since my last buildlog of Santa Maria Buildlog. Today I would like to present my new log of the Xebec Cazador of OcCre. As a child I was fan of the Redbeard comics, maybe known by some of you. Anyway, one of the titles was "Fight With The Moors" (1973) and describes a story of Moorish pirates who looted merchant ships in the Mediterranean sea. The ships they used were fast, agile and armed to the teeth Xebecs! In the story, ships were plundered, crew were killed, the ship burned to the ground and women
  2. Hello friends, according to the plans of Jean Boudriot, France Scale: 1/48 Species of wood: German Elsbeere Planning and keel-laying: December 2016 Dimensions of the model: Lenght: 1,10 m Width: 0,23 m Hight without mast: 0,24 m The pictures are the example: PES.ru Karl
  3. Click on the tags in the title above (shown in black) for an instant list of all the build logs for that kit subject.
  4. Introduction: One of the ship types that I`m interested in is the Chebec design. As a model I did`nt want to get it too complicated and too much detailed like for instance the build of the "Le Requin" Chebec would be. So the choise fell on a scratch build model after a basic Amati plan 1:60, that would be enlarged by 25% to scale 1:48, resulting in a new total length of 900 mm. To give the child / project a name, the ship will be "Eagle of Algier", and representing a (fictive) one one of those Mediteranian, North African fast trade- and pirate- Chebecs of the African B
  5. A fresh start to a new build, friends. This is a Barbary coastal favorite ship of a variety of pirates during the 18th century. I chose this build for a second build in progress to relieve myself from mistakes made on the first build for awhile. I have learned a great deal from you all and really must think every stage of the operation through. The Xebec is a fascinating ship of her day. She was swift and carried a fairly good size armament for her crew typically used by Mediterranean pirates and off the Algerian coastline. I will give more history later. This Amati kit
  6. I purchase a set of Amati Xebec plans 1;60 scale last week, and I must say, these are a very nice set of plans. This model will be built around these plans with some alterations. I used Cherry for the Stem, Keel and Stern and Tulip for the Bulkheads. I wanted to use 5mm ply for the Bulkheads, but my local store only had 4mm ply in stock, as I had a load of 7mm Tulip, I milled it down to 5mm and used that.
  7. A new build so I have something to do while waiting for Vasa parts. I ordered this from Maristella and apart from the excellent service Mr. Pavlovich offers I believe that they offer the best prices in Europe. My only regret is that I did not order one of Marisstellas own kits instead. But then again I have a reason saving up money for that in the future. The Xebec is the smallest shipmodel I have had so far. But the rigging is something that I for some reason wanted to try out. And it will be like a practice before I go on with my Pinco Genovese that is more like
  8. This is not really a build log as I have my Xebec completed waiting for its display case. These pics are pretty much the completed model !
  9. There seems to be little information on this ship, with OcCre themselves having nothing useful to tell us. Apparently xebecs played a big part in the second siege of Gibraltor, but that happened four centuries before this ship would have been built! Okay, thanks OcCre. Now to the model, It's actually quite an exciting kit to open with lots of little compartments full of goodies. Not sure of the quality as yet but to a relative newcomer like me it seemed impressive. My only previous build being a Caldercraft Sherbourne. This is the keel with bulwarks attached upon my primitive
  10. After many years of useing kits as the base for modelling, I started my first scratch model. Therefor I have choosed a smal ship, not a big one like my HMS Agamemnon. On the Mediterranean took place since the end of the 17th century two particularly fast, lean and sharply built sailing vessels whose hull was probably developed from the galley and the caravel: a native of Venice Galeotte and Xebec. The warships of Geneva and Venice, and also well known as the ships of the northern African pirates. At the same time Pinco was the typical merchant ship in the Mediterranean.
