Example 1.

Swedish privateer reconstruction

Basis of reconstruction

The reconstruction is performed on the basis of the antique drawing of the famous naval architect, Fredrik Chapman (the album "Architectura navalis mercatoria", page ХХХIХ drawing 9)

Rigging details

Rigging details were found in "Eighteenth Century Rigs and Rigging" by Marquardt.

3D model

The result of reconstruction is a 3D model of the privateer, which provides basic elements and components.

Hull design

Basing on the 3D model two options of the hull construction were further developed - professional "shell on thick frames"™ method (original) and classical PoB (plank on bulkhead).

The principle of "shell on thick frames" method and the work in progress:

Classical PoB:

Stern decoration

Decorations have been worked out separately.

Result

Finished hull.

Example 2.

Flemish galleon reconstruction

Basis of reconstruction

The only basic data for this model were an illustration by Björn Landström in the book "The Ship".

Basis of reconstruction

And the model located in Madrid museum "El Museo Naval", on which this illustration was based.

The model itself is votive and therefore served only as a rough base. For the thorough reconstruction the books "The Galleon: The Great Ship of the Armada Era" by Peter Kirsch, "Das Peller - Modell von 1603" by Werner Jaeger were used as well as engravings and illustrations of the time.

Example 3.

"Queen Victoria" imperial yacht reconstruction

The purpose was to create drawings set for building the model.

The original drawings are lost, all that remains are:

Basis of reconstruction

Rigging plan.

Bassis of reconstruction

The missing information was obtained from the analogues, "Cambria" yacht of Royal yacht club among them.

3D model

The 3D model has been worked out very carefully since high-quality drawings were expected as a result.

The design of the yacht hull for plywood laser cut has also been worked out. The design is described in details in "Designing the hull".
