  1. Hello, I like to show my build of the St.Gabriel here too and hopefully it is for interesst for you History: St. Gabriel from 1728 Vitus Jonassen Bering was a Danish naval officer in Russian services. He led the First Kamchatka Expedition from 1728 to 1730 and from 1733 the Second Kamchatka Expedition, on which he died. Among other things, "Columbus the Tsar" proved that Asia and North America are not connected. In 1728 Bering had the 18-metre long sloop St. Gabriel built. From July 1728, he used this ship to explore the coast of Siberia in a northerly direction, discovering several islands and penetrating further and further into the Arctic Ocean without finding a land connection between Asia and America. On 26 August 1728, due to bad weather, Bering gave the command to turn around and turned back at 67°18' north latitude. Although he had already crossed the strait later named after him, he did not provide the final proof that there is no land connection between Asia and North America. Source: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitus_Bering I will not lose so many words, rather let pictures speak. The basic hull structure Size comparison with the Maria (same scale) Second planking Unfortunately, the veneers do not quite "fit together" in terms of grain, see above and below the wale. First "oiling", always nice to see how the whole wooden structures are highlighted and everything darkens. The wale and first photoetched parts. The waterway. The handrail (consists of two layers of veneer) Here you can see that color comes into play. You won't find much information about St.Gabriel in the net, I stumbled over a picture where this typical green colour is shown and I want to try to add a little more individuality. Master Korabel kits have the ... haha ... "disadvantage" that they all like to look equally damn good. They are really one of the best kit designs I have ever had in my hands. Nice pear wood is also included Cheers Dirk
