Corsair by Sjors - FINISHED - OcCre - wood (1:80)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.


I started this build in October 2011 and finished it on 21 March 2012


The word Corsair means ‘Pirate’.
Height 580 mm, Lenght 750mm, Width 270 mm.

This originally merchant brigantine was transformed when it got into the hands of the corsairs, and fitted out with 16 cannons and 4 falconets, which all helped them to carry out their misdeeds with better chances of success.
The corsair's "trade" was in many cases practiced with the permission of the state, giving them carte blanche for piracy.


All the comment is lost in cyberspace so you have to do it with the pictures.

The pictures are sorted by date and I shall post them this way.

Looks very nice, Sjors.  I guess we would call her a 'Privateer', a sort of government sanctioned pirate.  What is the scale on her?


And thanks for reposting ...... I'll be following.

Hi Josh,


This build is all ready finished but after everything was gone I thought I put the hole build log back.

You can see her in the complete gallery.

But thanks for the kind words.
