This Blog is about building model fishing ships and everything what has to do with it. Most builds are done by me but when not I will mention.
I hope you will have fun reading and watching my blog and if you like please leave a comment.

Rigging (start)

Lots of work done on the Pelikaan. Frontmast, deckhatches, blocks and pulleys painted. Wooden deck, and a lot of other smaller jobs done.

And a beginning on the rigging. A very big job to do but also to find out how it has to be done

Red accents

Added some red accents. The ship's name on the side and the letters vD (van Duijn) stands for the owners name. Also painted the puls winches. For the (orange) pulse wire. This wire leads to the net on which are electrodes attached. These electrodes send pulses to the seabottome so the fish jumps up in the net. Much less damage to the bottom and less fuel consumption.
