Superb!  if I can ever achieve that level of model joinery I will be very happy; thanks for showing what can be achieved.

OK, I have a confession. I have been following this build for some time and while I knew that it was a xebec I knew little else. The build is obviously terrific but is it based on a real ship? Are the plans Daniel's? etc... Just in case there is someone else like me following, I finally answered some of my own questions although I invite corrections.

  This build is of the (very famous although unknown to me!!) French xebec Le Requin and there is a contemporary model in the French maritime museum. The plans appear to be those from the Ancre monograph of Le Requin by Jean Boudriot & Hubert Berti available from Ancre's Le Requin web page  where there is also a nice brochure for download. I am sure that a search will turn up much on this ship but I found a concise summary on

Michael Czytko Web site along with links and photos. A very interesting ship and Daniel's build promises to be a very special one.

Buongiorno e grazie a tutti, la scelta di fare il lato sinistro così, è stata fatta per far vedere il diverso spessore dei corsi della carena,

nelle foto successive si può vedere bene.


Good morning and thanks to all, the choice to do the left side so, was made to show the different thickness of the courses of the hull,

in the following photos you can see well.












from this picture, you can see the different thicknesses.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
