The Briney Brick 42 (c): Adding a closed forcastle

All in all the ship is taking shape...

 

***************************

 

Again a small deviation of the original design on the bowsprit; I added a 'Blind mast' So in stead of stay sails, my ship will be running a blind and top-blind sail.

 

With the very pronounced sheer in this ship, with its high forecastle and its high poop deck astern, it looks to me like an older ship, something from the 16th or 17th century, and back then, stay sails were not usual.

 

I will be mixing the times up though, because I want to give the ship a steering wheel with compass, a much later development. I might even add navigation lights (just because I love lights) which came even later...
