I was commissioned to build the model of an ancient Galleon (wreak) for the proposed Maritime Museum In Galle Sri Lanka, without any detail drawings but only some pictures of similar ships of that era. It had to be done in 4 months and to one tenth scale, 15ft(LOA) I did it and enjoyed every moment of it’s creation. I have trouble uploading the pictures at the moment(I’m trying though) Please visit -Youtube or this link – to see the work in progress. I’d love to join a Fraternity of model sailing ship builders, since we do not have such a club in this part of the world. I can send you more pictures of my work, Boat building and woodwork, if I get your positive response.
