Nave Egizia by wim500 - Amati - Egyptian merchant ship - 1:50 - wood


Recommended Posts

This is a reposting of a former buildlog, the build is finished and photo's of the result are shown in the galery.

 

The ship was used during the reign of King Sahoere from Egypt, he was the 2nd King of the 5th Dynastie.

He reigned from 2487 bC till 2475 bC, so this is an early build.

The ship was used for transporting cedar and ebony form Libanon to Egypt.

Nails were not invented yet, the entire ship is put together with rope.

 

Overall length: 35 cm.

Hi Wim,

 

Again a build that I never see…..

Where do you get those kits?

You travel around the world and see what they have?

Looks funny and nice.

Hi Sjors, I travelled a lot, but I bought this kit in Leiden, close to home :).

Thanks for looking in.

Thanks Adrieke and Sarah for looking in and your nice words.

For some reason or another I choose these kind of ships.

My next build is more 'normal', it will be the gundeck of Vasa (1:24) and in the closet a Bounty with interior.

I wish you all the luck.
