Caravel
About this creation
The caravel was a small, highly maneuverable ship developed in the 15th century by the Portuguese to explore along the West African coast and into the Atlantic Ocean. The lateen sails gave it speed and the capacity for sailing windward (beating). Caravels were used by the Portuguese and Castilians (Spain) for the oceanic exploration voyages during the 15th and 16th centuries.
With a length of almost 14 m (scaled) the design resembles caravels of the same size as Niña(Santa Clara) and Pinta from the 1492 quest for Asia.



It is in minifig-scale or 1:40’ish.
The model will have the dimensions Length: 40 cm, Height: 45 cm (with stand), Width: 10,5 cm (Beam)
There is approx. 1300 bricks in the model. (in one of them)
In this digital rendering, I have shown both a lateen rigged and square-rigged version.

Quoting Oliver Becker This is what we call Kraweel in Germany! These ships where the first where plank edges are butted smoothly seam to seam, so they were faster! Great work Anders! It's refreshing looking at your MOCs, because of your sparkish enthusiasm! I'd tried myself on some ships, but only in LDD! Someday I would like to rebuild the "Batavia", a dutch VOC - ship / galeon from 1629... ;)
Thanks. Yep, just like other ships from this period there was many local versions. This also just LDD for now, but the model is quite small and the ship versatile, so very likely to be built. About VOC-ship: I believe Captain Green Hair is attempting the Prins Willem (Willim), do not know if he succeeded.

Quoting James Donovan very vice! I love the simplicity of this... any chance you may do carracks with the high forecastles and the high poop decks, and those ships like Mary Rose of England?
You can follow the link given to BATOH Rossi. You can also go for the specific Eurobricks topic. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/173634-carrack/ This is just one take on the carrack. I may do another or several other, since the carrack had so many far out shapes. Thinking fun build.

Quoting BATOH rossi good job! just a question: where did you leave the Santa Maria? :)
