BigGrin Hi all I have been working on this project since the first lockdown as something to do. I copied the bulkheads from the corel vasa as looking at the Dutchman it's very similar to the Vasa apart from the forecastle and the deck plan . So I have put larger decks on and changed the bow to look like the F/Dutchman. Sorry I haven't got any pictures of the first part of the build. As I'm not very good at carving I have used modelling clay for the scary faces and the weird stuff on the stern I think they look ok still lots to do Cool . It's nice to build something that's total fantasy so I don't have to worry about historical accuracy and I can do whatever I like 😉.Cheers for looking
Martyn
As this is a scratch build the price so far £4.99 for the 2mm ply and £4.00 for the clay all the rest free from bits and pieces from other builds Cool

Jeepers... VERY spooky. Great work.
Strangely enough I wrote an Indiana Jones novel all about the Flying Dutchman. The ship is a great bit of history worth looking into.Cool

Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be

Nice to see your latest updates. You could always produce something a bit special and this one sits in the same category.

Loving the sculpted details, some real skills to be able to do that.

Hoping you share some more with us as its looking so good at this point.
