Well done! I especially like the way you did the sails and flags, she looks like she's getting at least 10 knots!

Thank you Tomek, you are too friendly.
Beckychestney: to tell you the truth, I have no idea how fast these vessels were. Don't expect too much. Speed was no issue in those days. Loading capacity was what it was all about...

Smalschip scratchbuilt model by abhovi

Hi abhovi!

Thank you ever so much for the PDF line drawing set for the Dutch fluit model! I appreciate it very much.

This little Dutch 17th century Smalschip model is absolutely beautiful! I really like the way the flags and pennants are bulging and fluttering in the wind - very life-like and realistic. You are a great artist, as well as modeler, with a keen eye.

And I totally agree in the other modeler's praise, it is so interesting to learn some new things on maritime history and shipbuilding, especially (in my view) during the interesting 16th to 18th century period, when ships looked like ships!

Thank you for sharing and all the best from Stockholm,
Bengt

I really like Dutch old ships and your model is very nice.

Many years ago I made this one.

Beautiful model Tomek. A little bit too clean for me, but spotless work. Do you have more pictures where we can see more of the hull? I cannot identify the type from this picture. Not a kit I bet?

It is clean and with stupid colours. Sure it isn't a kit. That was my 3-rd, or 4-th one made from scratch.

Well... it was to be a "tjalk", but I'm not sure what it is now:-))). According to the sketches the line of the bow should be curved further back. I didn't make any support to force this curve, hope I made it only by giving correct shape to the planks, but it went too vertically. Planks in front should be similar to the stern part.
Nice you like this model.

Well, actually the tjalk was a younger relative of the smal- and wijdschip.
With your talent every ship turns into a beauty.
