Jürgen Hauser - Ziterdes
In this video, Thommy from ZITERDES is a guest of Stefan "Shipbuilder" Weil, who has accompanied us for years. Starting as a customer, then as a colleague at trade fairs (with his own stand or with us as a helper) to our master shipbuilder, who has conjured up numerous exhibits from our models.
Stefan discovered his love for the material "hard foam" via our dungeon system "Dunkelstadt" and now shows you in a series of several "shipbuilding videos" how various ship hulls can be rebuilt, how to make and sew sails, how to attach them to the ship with mast and rigging and much more.
This first video takes a look at our Viking hull. It shows two (conversion) versions and demonstrates a particular sewing technique that can be used to sew the sail to the yard. You can also learn how to make a realistic (functional) rigging, using ropes, blocks, slip points and other nautical model building tricks.
Look forward to more videos where we will introduce other hulls and different types of sails and rigging.
