Here's a few pics of my upcoming 1/300th scale Lanterna models. Painted above is a Venetian Lanterna, and the unpainted is the Turkish variant.


These fine vessels will be for sale mid February on my webstore!


For more pics and information- and a challenge question- hard rudder and pull the oars over to my blog

These are great. How do you do the yards and rigging?

These are fantastic!

How do you do the rigging? Is it thread, wire or plastic? Are the holes for the rigging drilled or laser cut when the models are made?

Are these ships available now?

Thanks guys for the compliments and comments. Skrapwelder and Sstinnett, as to your queries on rigging, I've updated my blog with the cliff notes Version.


Basically I'm a lout when it comes to rigging ship models,and can tangle string just by looking at it (my father who was a commercial fisherman said I was cursed) so rigging on these guys is as easy as I could make it


The basic rigging lines are pre cut holes. I use strong button thread and a bit of super glue.

More pics and explanation on my blog!

Cheers- please keep the comments and questions coming- I want these models to be the best I can make and what you are looking for!
