I have decided to start building a flotilla of Arab Dhows for 54mm figures in my Sudan Campaign battles. This follows up on the paddle wheel boat that I recently constructed.

click on the link to my blog (Der Alte Fritz Journal) to read the short tutorial on how I made my dhow:

Nice conversion of the hobby lobby boat. I did up 4 of them adding a deck, sails and guns for Limeys and Slimeys.

Great job, Jim.

And for those who want to do something similar, here's a bunch of ship ideas from the old Major General's web site, courtesy of the Way Back machine.

Thank you for the link, Colonel Campbell, I'd forgotten about that site.

We rode a dhow a couple times in Bahrain and the only thing I remember about it, other than the little hut on the stern with a hole in the bottom, was the deck was arched to provide strength.

BTW, you should put a Welsh expatriate on that Dhow as the captain.
