Today I show pictures of the first sample ...! The facades are on the right side! For down I'm still undecided ...! Maybe a whole building or a warehouse ?!
The Ship is a dummy...! ;-)
The Ship, that I use, gets the "right" sails at the Moment...

Wow, there is a spray of great high quality projects in a historic context here at Benno's forum at the moment and this one is definitely one of them!
In other words, this is why I joined this forum last year :-D

But euh... reading the replies of our fellow members, and reading your first posts again, you create some confusion about what you are actually really doing and making yourself:

The figures are made by Max Hecker like you told us before. Thats a great initiative :yeah:
The Henry 8th style coastal defense fortress turnes out to be made by someone else but you don't want to tell who. :eh: only that he is your friend.
The houses will be made by Jens Najewitz.
So the ships are left to be made by yourself, the one with the sails and the dummy. Both look like plastic scale kits. Or is it wooden kits? So did you build these two ships yourself or did someone else build that too for you?
After visiting the wreck of the Mary Rose this kind of early galleons or tall ships have my special interest. Please tell us who is the designer and who build them.
