Well you are absolutely right here, Stenfalk. Not only technically but also the logistics and the time planning of developing ships, and crew that fit them, is hard and difficult. I have to think in advance for a year or more.
I remember so well when Alex Gusef made medieval rowers for a boat that was made not by him. And then the figurines did not fit the riverboat. The figurines were not too big, the boat was just too small (scale 1/90 or something like that.) So Gusef had to make a bigger boat himself. It is very difficult to avoid such situations. Once a figurine and a boat is moulded and reproduced, there is no way back.
Yes, it can be solved if I design digitally. But I don't want my whole life online and digitally with my eyes only focussed on a screen.
Last summer I made the Gyptis rowing boat with sail.
But I only have standing sailors at the moment. Or sitting rowers.
In such a small boat its not logical to sail when standing.
Sailors treat sails, yards, lines, cables and rudders while seating.
Otherwise they fall overboard.

So I decided to make new sailors: sitting.
But it takes me much longer to make the crew than to make the boat.
That boat is already for sale.
Now the dummies for the sitting sailors are almost ready.
How long will it take me to receive them back from the forger, get them dressed, send them to the forger again and receive them for selling?
How long will it take before I have them painted in the rigged boat for a promotion picture for selling them
I need patience. I will be patient. I must be.
So here they are, my SITTING SAILORS, unfinished dummies, just the raw sculptings.
