For a longer time l was looking  miniature masters at work ...  so I decided to try something similar.

I'll make something simple to start. Pasara - Croatian traditional boat.
My building is not traditional, but you will see ...

Pasara is a middle-sized boat, similar to other traditional boats by her design and by purpose. The pasara´s characteristic feature is the transom stern. The flat broad surface of the transom allowed easy fitting of the outboards motors, making the pasara very popular among the recent boatmen "barkarijoli" who used to rent their boats and offer their navigational services to turists for short trips.
The smallest pasara used to have no deck, The middle sized and the larger ones of 5 to 6 meters of length were usually partly decked up to about a third of the boatˇs length from the bow. In recent times special wooden covers, similar to hatch covers on larger boats, were used to cover the entire pasara to protect the inside of the boat from rain or sea. A small pasara was used for fishing as well as for transport, but was frequently also used as a by-boat, named "kajic" for larger sailing boats. When not in function of connecting the large boatwith the coast or towing her in the calm, "kajic" was usually the lugsail and the jib. Various local shipwrights tended to develop thier own practicular design features. It was easy to discern those caracteristic local features among pasaras along the coast. Thus, the pasara hull design which was subject to local preferences too. The pasara could be seen carrying the lug, but also the lateen , or even the gaff sail.

It is not an accident that I smoothed the outside of the hull.

Pasara made a very clean and smooth with no visible cracks:

Hi Matija

 

Wow!!! The hull with the ribs in it, just looks brilliant! At first glance, looking at the overhead shots, all it would take is a bit of a scrape of the paint, a few dings and knocks, the odd rope and ancillary details, etc, and one would think it was the real thing.

 

That's a true testament of a well built hull.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Hi Matija

 

One has the impression everything would be easy - but we all know how well you're doing this.

That looks awesome!

 

Regards

Mike

 

 

 

 

I agree with you Mike.

 

I have to admire people who make things look easy.  The reality, as you've said, is very different as it takes a lot of skill to do what Matija's done.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Good morning Matija

 

Simply sensational! I especially like these moments when a build is in a raw state - from my point of view a moment where the essence is visible.

Your boat is in such state - further build almost pity ...  ;)  - no serious, I just like this raw look (also in regard to architecture).

 

Regards

Mike

Thank you Patrick, I'm glad you like it. Is proceeding slowly, not how I wanted to, I do models only at night ... if I'm not on the job;).

 

Thank you Mike, your words pushed me to do yet another wonderful model of Croatian Adriatic when I finish Pasara ... ;)

... the end of the construction is not even close. Maybe that she cut in half Once completed. ;) It would be interesting installations.

 

Mr. Jukic and Mr.Udovc are more experienced Croatian modelers than me and it's nice to receive your praise, thank you ...

 

Thanks to all for likes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regards, Matija.

Hi Matija

 

Marvellous stuff! Are you tempted to leave the hull as it currently is, or, will you paint over it? Seems to have loads of character as it is, being a workboat.

 

Have you also thought how you're going to display it? Maybe in a diorama type setting, with nets, fishing crates, etc strewn about?

 

Cheers and all the best!

 

Patrick

Thank you Pierre, Patrick, Michael, Bob  for the nice words   :)
 
Patrick, I will paint the hull and everything else that is free of scratches.
It is intended for a gift and I will not to play with the final appearance.
You're a little intrigued me so maybe next project will be in the style of what you suggested.

 

 

Regards, Matija.
