Hi everyone!

Attraction park Madurodam found out about my ship building hobby and asked to use my 3D models for their latest attraction New Amsterdam ... I was happy to sell them to them.

Now the attraction is finished. The ships seem to play a pretty major part in the attraction . People can even shoot a cannon at them!

Hi everyone,

Its been quite a while since my last post here... After the birth of my daughter I've been pretty occupied.
Still I noticed that my blog still attracted attention from several people interested in 17th century ships. So three months ago I decided to start again on a small project...

I'd like to show my latest render of a Brittish light frigate, the HMS Martin, built in 1652.
This ship had quite an active carreer, sailing to the West Indies, Mediterranean and was part of the squadron capturing New York from the Dutch in 1664. Although she was very lightly armoured, she participated in several battles during the First and Second Anglo-Dutch wars.

For this composition, I figured the model wouldn't need much more than some dramatic back lighting...
