Plans and research ...

     The hard stage of each model construction is to choose your ship. What period, which country, what scale - with these issues, every modeler has broken his head. That's why this difficult and complicated choice is almost a basic or even a key moment in the success of each model. Whatever it would like to build every free minute, instead of starting and throwing somewhere on the shelf to collect dust, because you quickly or simply lose interest in the facts that are cleared up during the construction process. Therefore, it is often necessary to conduct research on each ship before starting to build ...

     And in my case, it's a huge temptation to build something that no one has ever built before. Because the man is an archeologist and has many projects that are just getting ready for publication. For each of them there is a heap of information and including historical. I am happy to take part in the reproduction of the drawings and I keep my hands in my hands so as not to start building. But often you have to build for an experiment to refute or confirm some facts. You also have to make large-scale copies to demonstrate the individual elements. All these processes are very exciting and interesting in themselves as facts of research. As a fashion designer, I love high quality drawings, and now I can discover the secrets of their creation. Why in some issues you first have to do an experimental model, and only then transfer the results to the drawing. On the one hand, the plane is a vector model that must show in detail all the parameters of a real ship, and the very remains that are subject to detailed analysis to obtain a complete reconstruction of even the lost details (if possible, there is evidence to that effect). Archaeologists never categorically claim anything, because new data can be opened at any time, so they always state the facts dryly. Such concept as reconstruction on the same vessel of the same period and language can not go - only concrete facts. Modelers, too, in their own way often become researchers, and working closely with archaeologists can sometimes greatly simplify the search for truth. So I want to create this page. In this section, I will talk about my own research and share facts, techniques and technologies with you ...

So in my closest plans:

Cossack boat - 1737 - 1739

This project was determined by fate since 1998, when I first heard the news about the Cossack boat found by archaeologists. Even then, it was thought to me how it would be great to raise it and "touch the history", since this boat is almost 300 years old - it is a national cultural heritage that has survived to our time from the time of the Cossacks ...
