The Carrack, Caravela, Nau, Nao, Neef or Kraak.
The ship type was all the rage in the 15th century.
It was important for me that it seemed like a reasonable evolvement of the cog, and as a precursor for the galleon, being closer to the latter.
Trying to avoid the most out there designs of this type; I have mainly used different plans for the Santa Maria and a great deal of sense.
I may return to the type to explore some of the weird versions.
It is in minifig-scale or 1:40’ish.
The model will have the dimensions Length: 85 cm, Height: 75 cm (with stand), Width: 23 cm (Beam)
There is approx. 6400 bricks in the model.
Again an exellent randition! I looked for the Prins Willem, sad the replica burned down in 2009! Never knew it existed... Thanks for the tip! In Bremerhaven the "Seute Deern" sunk because of riding out ( sorrowly a well known German characteristic...) and they like to rebuild it now... It's a mess! ;)
