Arab Dhow 
by John M Johnsey 

1/60 Arab Dhow (Artesania kitbashed)

My wife has been on assignment in Saudi Arabia so I built this kit   for her and my daughter who I had promised a sailing ship model years ago. I kitbashed it from a Artesanai model. The model seems accurate but I changed it up a bit  because I thought the model as it  appears on the box cover was  too "restaurant scale".  I  weathered the model  to better represent  a working Dhow.  I was also not happy with the supplied  wooden barrels so I scratchbuilt  a couple for the deck. I was also able to fish some small wire thru the sails to  make the vessel appear to be under sail.
