How easy are they to build, say in comparison to the Zvezda Kog?
The Christopher columcus ships, although not medieval also look very tempting

Well it is definitely a bit more difficult to do. But with a little skill and if you follow the instructions it should take you a night or two. I have never tried before I did the Knarr and it turned out great.

I actually had the idea that it could be fun to make a smaller ship for the medieval period, I am thinking about a larger rowing boat like the one that is used in the latest Robin Hood movie.

This one?

Like a lot in the film, Richard dying in battle in france, Phillip trying to invade england, it´s fantasy. They were first invented by the japanese in the 1930´s. There are references to ships landing horses using ramps during the 3rd (?) crusade but this was apparently at a fixed dockside which would be higher and the ramps wouldn´t have to go so far down

Hi Paul,

Nope I was thinking about this one as it can be used for a merchant ship/vessel as well...

The closest I can find are 18th century whaler boats

Nice website and interesting models... my idea was to make the boat with a few rowers and some cargo. As waterline model.
