When Dan was here in Stockholm we visited the Vasa Museum and I got so inspired that I just had to find my stored away toy ship I got some years ago and start to fix it up for some 17th century gaming.
My plan are to make a Swedish trading ship that was user for the trade and transports to Swedish colonies in Africa and America.
The model is a toy ship from a Pirate of caribbean range that I got on a sale for maybe £10, don´t know what ship type it can be but for me, that are not in to sailing and ships, it looks a bit like a full-rigged pinnace.
Removed the bottom part so i got a good waterline.
There was masts and sails included by they was in soft plastic and didn´t work to paint even with a PVA glue layer in the bottom so I made me new masts and will not have any sails open as when unisg the ship it will be in support of land action or just to display as background.
