I have an additional hint for you. If you sometimes need good patterns or ideas for ornamentation for your own work, I recommend this over 400 pages strong book! It contains a lot of decoration elements, geometrical patterns, natural forms, artificial objects and much more! The „Handbook of Ornament“ by Franz Sales Meyer, is a great book and highly recommended.Paperback: 576 PagesPublisher: Dover Pubn Inc (1.

The bronze gun patterns by Albert Borgard and John Armstrong and the evolution of European gun proportions
The gun patternsThis is still my favourite theme. Years ago, the analysis of Borgard and Armstrong
bronze guns happened by coincidence. I wanted to build a cannon for a ship and noted that no good information existed. Especially about bronze guns in the early years of 1700. The gun theme is not simple. On the contrary, it is very complex. Especially information about true patterns and weights. My challenge is to solve the theme around the true Albert Borgard Bronze pattern of 1716 and the evolution to the John Armstrong ones. My motivation is to continue and expand the former leading author’s Adrian B. Caruana´s and Charles Trollope´s work in a meaningful way! If you are interest in more information, please take a look at the separate overview about my scientific elaboration.Please feel free to contact me if you have any options to realize the measuring of both hidden 1737‘ Victory guns in Historical Dockyard in Portsmouth! Thank you very much!
Selling models on several platforms in the world wide web
Selling contentIn the past I made my models for free, mostly in communitys or for private projects. To prevent these dozens models from „rusting“ on my hard drive disks and to make money for expanding my working possibilities, I have chosen to prepare and sell them on common platforms in the internet. This is a complex process and will be a while till all ones are purchasable.As variety to the overhauling of my existing content I started new assets for sale. Please check out the common platforms for my assets!
Corporations are not a simple duty, in contrary! A collaboration is a major factor in success because not just the trust to other people but also the final result has a much higher quality as the work of little people. Within my possibilities I still support my friends from Wolf Pack Gamesand the Pirates Ahoy!community and am very happy that so many people share the same interest in such a rare theme.I would especially highlight the HMS Unicorn Virtual Museum, Tides of War: Letters of Marque and Hearts Of Oak, as common work.
suitable for future-proof use. As a result I only kept the basic pattern of the hull and the gallion and recreated the whole ship completely new and added all the interior. Although the ship looks nearly complete, many things are missing. The standing rigging must be completed as well as a few parts of the running rigging. I only want to build the running rigging so far that it is usable as dynamic setup in any 3D-Engine. After finishing these parts, a little bit of upper deck work is needed and last but not least the sails and flags. Sounds like little work, but is a lot! The standing rigging is much more than the shrouds. When you take a look at the yards, there is nothing. Just like at the bowsprit.Once ready for sailing, the QA-phase starts and after fixing all errors and mistakes the next (and last) step follows: physical proxies, LODs and the final PBR material setup.

The HMS-SphynxOh yes, perhaps the longest project I have ever started. Why? Well, the process of this vessel was always interrupted when a current project reached a new milestone. Reworkings, new tests, new setups, new tutorials. Whatever. By the way, there is an interesting story about the creation of this ship. Originally just the
Primarily, I want to finish my scientific elaborationand some long term projects besides a few commercial releases. Below you will find a text and a list with preview pictures of the upcoming work. You can view them all as gallery by clicking on any picture and using the arrows. You can enlarge individual pictures if you click on them directly. Have fun!
Since the success of my 3D-Reconstruction of British bronze guns, scientific work has been an important part of my work. I extend this work regularly and look forward to new interested persons and customers.Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in a 3D-reconstruction with a scientific elaboration. Such work is the future! I have many years of experience in the museum preparation of historical artifacts and know the most common 3D-engines and display techniques. Take the opportunity and start the modern and contemporary presentation of your content. Let me convince you of my references. I am looking forward to hearing from you! I am your professional!
