Avast ye Lubbers!
Here be a true account of the travails of the British Smyrna Convoy in the Straits. A tale of deceit, 'ardships an' anguish if ever there be.

Excellent stuff. May I ask, who is the manufacturer of the "Kalat" model? She looks like a very tidy galley

Dear David,
She doesn't belong to me, but I know that she is from Langton and from the rounded fo'c'sle I think one of the galiot types: REN 3 or REN 4.
I'll ask Sir Anthony if he can remember.

Rod could certainly do with a few more photos of his Renaissance ships on his website :)

Yes, Langton's are expensive but lovely, and eye-candy on a website sells because you can see what you are getting and decide if it is right for you, rather than just seeing the price-tag!
