Was the rudder controlled by a tiller or wheel? I don't spot either one. I'm probably looking in the wrong place

Neither of them. The rudder was controlled by a set of takes in the steering stand.

There was a tiller below the quarterdeck. The helmsman could see out through some small windows so that he could check the position of the sails.

In the last two pictures you can see a small "step" with these windows in the deck just before the mizzen mast.

In this case the tiller would end just behind the mast. It was probably controlled via ropes and pulleys by the helmsman standing in front of it.

17th Century Dutch Fluit Finished!

Hello abhovi!

I am so very glad that I checked in to the forum today. I was greeted by the lovely sea rendering of the finished Dutch 17th Century Fluit on the front portal page. What a charming and lively image, with all the colours flying!

Congratulations on a one-of-a-kind model build, and thank you so much for a most enjoyable, highly inspirational and incredibly educational model building thread! It has been a sheer joy to follow it, and I have learned a lot on the way.

All the best from Stockholm,
Bengt

John.

Bengt, sorry for my late reply, I must have missed your posting. Thank you for your undeserved praise.
Thank you Paperclip, your work on the Berbice will not be so bad either :-)
JohnMGD: yes, they are still in the make. The work is carried out by students of the Hogeschool Leeuwarden and it all takes a while. We are finishing the interactive presentation of the building method.
Another part, navigating through the ship has made great progress, but more or less stranded temporarily because the students were lured into a VR adventure. I had the thing on and 'walked through the ship,' which was a fantastic eperience, but for the application on internet it is too heavy. Now trying to get the students back on track :-)).
So you have to be patient, just like me...
