Hi @ all!
As the title already tells it is about the cog. I made this model this year after a 10 year brake from model making (It took me about 2 and a half month). The "Mały Modelarz 9/2000" ( Koga Elbląska) seemed for me to be a good, not too dfficult start back into business. I see this model as an experiment so some parts may be not really done well (i.e. the sail, planking), but hey, the people in the medieval age worked not perfectly neither..
My wish was always to make some wooden model so I decided to try out new materials. Since I do not have so much tools here and not the money to spend on, the choice fell on balsa wood. The only paper parts in my model are the anchors.. :p Still I would like to share some pictures of the finished model and some experiences/problems about the cog.
After seeing DORIS' her paper models, I may reconsider to change the material and stay with paper, carton, etc. :D
For the start here some pics:
