Finally my WIP is ready, i've named here the Prinses Nikki (Nikki is my daughter's name, she's just 3 years old)
She started as the Red Whale, here's the WIP Thread; The Red Whale
Waterline lenght; 62 cm
Overall lenght; 78 cm
Width; 17 cm at the waterline
Hight; 78 cm
About 80 m1 of string rigging.
Weighs about 4,62 kg
Took me about 3 months to build (at 4 times a week 3 to 4 hours building)
I used several techniques from CGH; the tumblehome (although i used roofs from cars instead of hinges), the rigging and the sails, thanks for all the tutorials!!, before i was on this forum my ships were boxed, not any use of tumblehome or that sort of things , this forum helped me a lot to improve my ship building .
I also used the building plans from the russian ship the Priediestinacja, i used it for measurements and rigging.
The flags are from the Dutch VOC and in the top of the main mast is the Admirals flag (the Dutch used it to point out that the admirality is on board).
I've made no interiour because of all the special techniques i used it became a mess inside.
The hatches are a bit bigger than mostly used in this forum, it was because i don't have enough hatches so i came up to this (and it looks quite nice IMO )
Well hope you like it;
