Is There a Kalmar Nyckel Kit?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a model kit of the Kalmar Nyckel? 


She's a lovely pinnace that I will be sailing on later this year, and I would love to make a model kit of her.


Google has not found anything.  I am not optimistic.

A bit of Googling did find some plans: http://home.comcast.net/~iver.franzen/Kalnyck.html


So you could scratcbuild one if you wanted to. Or you could get someone like rshousha (MSW sponsor) to loft the frames and laser-cut some plywood bulkheads for you. 


But no kit. If Google doesn't know about it ... then it probably doesn't exist :(

I was afraid that was the case.  One day, I must scratch build one, then.  I'm going to be crewing her later this year, and I thought it would be really cool to have a model of the pinnace.  However, my skill is far below a level where scratch building would be advisable at all, so I believe I will take your information, pocket it, and hold onto it until a time when I am skilled enough to use it.


Thanks so much for sharing what you were able to find :)
