Revell 1/83 Mayflower 1620
The Pilgrim Fathers ferry..
I bought the kit in a bag second hand with as much flash as there was kit plastic. I do like the results. Including three little Fathers! It's not as colorful as other Mayflowers but I really can't imagine a poor man's ferry to the new Continent across the Atlantic with lots of bright colors.. They were quite expensive then!
Let me know what you think!

Not my forte, mind you, but anyone who builds old sailing ships with all that rigging gets an "atta boy" from ME. 🙂
I'm with Craig; Great job. I like ship models ... especially those done by other folks!
Wonderful presentation,The rigging is always a problem for me
Pics are a bit blurry, but it looks like a nice Mayflower! I have enough trouble rigging biplanes - forget ships! I'll leave that to those like yourself with more patience (and skill).
Nice to see a ship model here for a change.
Maurits, good to see the old girl done so well! There was a whole bunch of historic model ships back then, in odd scales, and sometimes not so authentic. But they look good! And they inspired a whole lot of us to keep at it.
Hi Maurits, great job! How many of us did build one of these many moons ago as a child, and made the virus bite. I think you did a wonderful job with this built. Not a ship builder myself but I can appreciate the amount of work you've put in. The rigging is just great on such a small model.
Great work! nice to see it.
I agree rigging on ships are a nightmare,you have done a great build on this model,I`ll stick with metal tracks.
Odd scale, but you turned it into a nice replica.

Very cool build. You don't see too many sailing ships built. I had a very distant ancestor who came over to the "New World" on the Mayflower. I'm sure he would have approved of your work.
Thanks for all the nice comments! I should get myself a proper camera..
