«Model builders» (Моделист-конструктор) - a monthly popular science and technology magazine. Published since August 1962

This magazine has captured the imagination of millions of youths and adults alike in the USSR. I will post my favorite (uncopyrighted) designs and articles as well as translations from my collection.

A great site that shows you how to make scale looking stuff for your scale boat!

Elbląska Koga

The cog plans are good - though the turn of the bilge ought be sharper. Looks like that fellah would roll like a bad 'un!

Dear Mr. Andy,

Please translate "turn of the bilge" into English for me.

Hi Weeds! The "turn of the bilge" - best illustrated:



The Bremen Cogge (the best preserved example) has a flatter floor and straighter sides, necessitating a tighter curve between the two, than is shown on the plan.

A flatter floor (and more box-like hull) would:

  • Lend itself to the cogge staying upright when it dried out on tidal flats.
  • Increase the volume in the hold.
  • Improve the righting moment when heeled.
  • Increase the resistance to rolling.
