I casted 8 of them to start with, here at bottom left in my stockpile.
Now this is really good news!

Dear Cryns, you have asked if I have ideas for further releases – and I do in fact.
So here is one suggestion: A Roman riverboat of the flat, elongated type that was used in the northern provinces. I’m thinking about the famous Zwammerdam boats, No. 6 in particular. This is a photo by Jona Lendering / Livius.org made at the Museum in Mainz:

And some more info is here:

https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Classis_Germanica

Technically, it may be quite difficult to cast such a long boat in one piece. On the other hand, since it would be a waterline-model, it would automatically have support from below when it is put on the base plate. So I think it might be feasible to cast such a boat in parts to be assembled by the customer. What do you think?

Dear StephB,

Thanks for all your input!
I will be offline here for the next weeks.
But in September I will start a new topic about Roman River Ships and Crew.
So other members can join our debate too about what types of ships are on top of our wishlist, how to make them and how to produce copies.
Anyhow, a full range of Roman Riverboats and Crew are in my productionpipeline. Its just a matter of time.

Regards,

Cryns

Schilling-Figuren has cast 3 of my shipmodels in pewter/tin. Especially the raised sail of the small ships is a masterpiece-cast made by Schilling.
Hull, cargo and full sails are still cast by me in resin.

The idea behind casting these ships in pewter is to bring the price down for customers. At the same time it will save me lots of time that I would like to spend in designing new ships and crew.

These metal casts are not for sale yet. They will be soon.

Dear Chris and Wolfgang, thanks for your nice replies :D

LABOURMEN FOR THE ANCIENT HARBOUR

Recently I have been sculpting a few sets of new male dummies. The first group of them are men carrying cargo, loading or unloading a ship.

It is exciting to see how straightforwardly and focussed you carry out your very complex work. Nothing has been not thought out, each part finds a place and complements the previous one. Stunning!
