Since it's a different type of ship and a different period, I wouldn't complain too much. After all, we have multiple types of tanks. The art work on the FDG cog is simply beautiful. Since I tried my hand at designing a cog recently (and did not succeed to my expectations), my hat's off to FDG.

I'm working on mine, bit by bit and piece by piece. I'm taking my time with it, allowing the glue to set up really well, and running beads of Elmer's along the seams, because it's a big model, and I want the curves to work right. I'm also reinforcing it in certain places where I think strains will be put on it that we usually don't find in models with boxy, rectilinear construction.
One of the things that triggered the fascination that miniatures have for me was viewing the Fleischer animated version of Gulliver's Travels at an early age. It strikes me that if I were Gulliver, then the Incognito would be just about the perfect size to represent a 1-to-1 scale Blefuscu warship. I could build a whole bunch of them, waterproof their hulls, and then drag them all across a pond by their hawsers!

I made a couple mistakes on the hull, and so I had to reinforce several sections of the interior. I reprinted the bulkheads and rudder, and then cut the reinforcing pieces from those. They fit perfectly and look good too. I should post a picture if I get time.
There are only 3 kinds of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who can't.
I already got the FDG Cog, I just picked up the maiden and the docks, thanks for the hint.
I'd love to kitbash the Cog into a derelict ruin of a wreck, but since I didn't even finish the first build and I got way too little time for all the strange ideas bouncing back and forth in my head...
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.
