This page should prove inspiring. The guy is an expert.

 

MarisStella's kits are indeed very well thought-out. I'm going to continue building their Pelig model this summer.

 

Oh, additional information can be found in Mario Marzari's book Trabaccoli e Pielghi by Mursia. Try Mursia.com.

 

Great build, read through your log this afternoon.

 

Regards, 

Rafael.

Ian: Thanks, it's nice to finally get some outside pictures

Mike: It is finally warming and now with some rain the last couple of days things should start greening up

Rafael: Thanks so much for stopping in. I checked out that build and it is beautiful the guy does some incredible work. I am looking up those books but am not sure if they are in English

B.E.: Thanks for stopping B.E., it's really appreciated. That would be my guess about the rope at the bottom of the mast, I also thought it was a different approach that looks good.

Gorgeous work, and I'm jealous of your outdoor surroundings!

 

How do you like the serving machine?  I've been thinking about getting one, even if to just strop blocks which was a painful endeavor on my Badger using "helping hands" and other gizmos.

Mike: the serving machine works good, I am enjoying it quite a bit

Zoltan: outside shots are always better, but this year with all the wind and rain we are having so far it is hard to find a day to take her outside

Eddie: Thanks, after seeing your last post in "what I received today" I may have to buy something else for those rainy days. I haven't played any sort of game in many many years, it's tempting to start again:P;)

Hello all, here is a quick update on the Trabaccolo not much has happened but I'll show what little there is:

Making chainplates, these were soldered afterwords. Then holes punched using a broken 1mm end mill bit

Brackets were made for channels, plans did not ask for them but I thought they would be a nice addition these and the channels are made from rosewood

Making of the oars

Brackets for the back stays

A couple of shots showing channels with dead eyes installed and also the back stay brackets. Brackets and chain plates still need to be touched up with some paint, I 'm waiting until all metal work is done to do it all at once.

Just a couple of fun shots

Made these yesterday not fancy or pretty but they will soon be filled with rope made on my new Domanoff ropewalk:D:D:P The one on the right in the front row is the one I copied from

Glad to see you're still busy on this build Don. I was wondering something - I am considering starting a new build and was debating whether to pull Trajta off the shelf. I was reading thru the instructions and really struggled with the English. I decided I didn't want to fight that right now so I'll look for something else to start. Are the instructions for Trabakul any better?

Hello mikiek ... I mus tell that the English is much better at the complete line by now... some of the kits alround are from the last series, so this could be a problem... but anyway, the new English versions are done and they are on the shelves right now ... if it happens that enyone get the old ones, just tel me and I'll send the new ones ...

 

I love to say that Don is guilty for some of those new textual parts !!

 

Regards,

Zoran

Hi Mike, Thanks for stopping by. Work on the Trabaccolo has been slow as of late but I am now determined to get it finished soon, if all works out. I think I have been stalling a little as I am unsure whether to install the sails or not and the time is coming very close to make this decision.

The Trajta is a nice looking boat and looks like she would be a fun build with great results. If it were me I would do the Trajta first to just get the feel for the MarisStella kits. They are wonderful kits and are certainly not the same as other kits which adds to the adventure of building one. If you decide to start the Trabaccolo I know the instructions have been re-done, it would be just a matter of contacting Zoran for them, if you have the old ones. As Zoran stated above many of the kits instructions have been re-written, a quick email and Zoran will be there to help with any questions you may have concerning any aspect of the kits or your build.

 Whatever decision you make I'll be watching and would be more than happy to help out and to cheer you on.

Hey Don - That's good to know about the updated instructions. I'll see if Zoran can get me a copy. My other Maristella kit is the cog and I don't want to do that one as a secondary build.

 

I know what you mean about putting things off. It's easy to do. Of course when I do that, I end up getting frustrated that things are not progressing. You can't win either way. From the pix I have seen I think all the Maristella kits should have sails. It will come to you when the time is right.

 

Stay with it.

Hello Zoran - I am following up from your reply regarding any updated instructions for the Trajta kit. I don't know if what I have is new or old. I bought the kit about 8 months ago. I'd love to get started on Trajta. 

 

I don't seem to be able to PM the maristella.hr account

Hey Mike, if you go to their website(located on the home page in the ads) you can email from there. If that doesn't work let me know and I can pm you. Also, have you checked out Zoran's build log of the Trajta, it is real informative and detailed, link is in his signature

Thanks to all for stopping in, for your comments and for all the likes. Got a little more done in the last two days mainly the ship's stove is now installed complete with a stockpile of firewood and an axe. The pump was also made and installed, this is a little kit included with the package, I think it looks pretty good. It came with 3 mm copper strapping for the bands, however, I replaced that with some card stock

Beautiful Don.  Love the small details!!

I agree, I always looked at that Maris Stella model like its ok but really would not buy or build. Well you opened my eyes and taught me a lesson not to judge by a box cover. You have put the WOW factor into your build, paint scheme is fantastic it really pops in addition to the extras you covered the deck with an excellent job. Don't judge a book by its cover.

Frank: Thanks so much for stopping in, really good to hear from you again. How is the Red Dragon coming along?

 

Zoran: Hello, Thanks for the compliment, much appreciated

 

Doug: Thanks, it was a hot day here yesterday. In the pictures clouds had just started rolling in and a short time later we had a pretty good rain storm. The rain was much needed as the mosquitoes were starting to suffer;)

 

Mike: Hey, how are things with you? Thanks for dropping in

Hi John, you must have slipped in when I was typing:). Thanks for coming by. They really are good kits and at this scale it is  fun to add and change a few things. The boxes are not the normal flashy and colourful, but when you open the box and see the contents you soon forget about the box lid. Another good thing about the MarisStella colour scheme is that carrying one of these boxes into the house will not catch the Admiral's eye near as much!! ;)
