Spent an hour or so learning about the construction of Sanskrit lettering and each letter's associated sounds from Sue Andreasson, Sue studies at the School of Ficino, a philosophy school in Mt Eden.
While I was there, her husband Nils, showed me through his model ship building studio.
This ship here is the culmination of two years of craftsmanship. Not only is it completely to scale but each section of the rigging actual hangs correctly to show the placement of weight crated by the sails.
His next project.
