  1. Having seen Darias build In Real Life, I can tell you guys that the schooner looks fantastic this far! A very clean and precise build. Very well done!
  2. Hi As far as I know, this is a concept and a construction by F.H. Chapman. Check out this wonderful volume on him: "FH Chapman: The First Naval Architect and His Work" by Daniel G Harris ISBN (old style) 0851774865 Conway Press Great build! Cheers!
  3. Hi fellow ship modellers! Here is a new VERY interesting interview with a very dedicated modeller on his builds and his way of modelling ships. Mainly liners as I understand it. A very nice man and his fantastic builds. Enjoy

    Kit Imperial Standart

    This problem has been solved A fantastic new friend, a member here on MSW, has helped me. He is born in Russia but lives here in Sweden these days. To make a long story short: He dared getting the kit out from Russia, under the nose of the cheka All went well and he is NOT in the Gulag now Conclusion for those who might be interested in this ship/kit: You can NOT buy it from outside Russia. They are NOT interested in our money. Odd. Kind regards from a happy Pontus
  5. Hello Alex Is there a possibility that I could get hold of these two drawings in bigger files? Kind regards, Pontus

    Thank you Lou for your kind thoghts. I can get plans for this yacht but...I dont know...really This place though: "www.ozon.ru" might actually sell to international customers, all issues in one go, not as subscription. Again though the site they have on the interwebs is ONLY in Russian Hence I ask again if we do have some russian speaking member who can help out here Kind regards, Pontus

    Hi Imagna. I did contact them yesterday. In english though. Yes it seems like it is only a subscription, which makes it even a bigger problem I fear this would be my only chance to find a kit of this ship/yacht, as it actually is not a very well known one outside Russia, and even not very famous IN Russia. Kind regards, Pontus

    Thank you grsjax The more I look at that site, I fear it actually is only available in Russia A bit odd I would say, as De Agostini is a big company these days... Darn. I really hope there is a way to get this... /Pontus

    Kit Imperial Standart

    Hello felllow boatsmen! There is a ship that I just love and want to build a model of. I have searched for a long time for a kit of her, but this far found nothing. It is the Russian Imperial yacht Standart, built in Denmark. I think she looks gorgeous. I am to much a novice to scratch such a ship, as I have seen actuallt beeing done here on MSW. Today though I found a kit! From DeAgostini. Sadly though is seems to be only available in Russia I cant read the page I found: http://yacht.deagostini.ru/ Now, do we have any russian speaking here, who might be able to read this, and tell me a bit of what that site says? I really hope it is possible to get this kit. I live in Sweden btw. Kind regards, Pontus
  12. Hi fellow boatsmen Anybody know what happend to this place? www.titanic-model.com Suddenly simply gone Not a trace. I liked it and I am modelling the Tirtanic. Kind regards,
  13. Thank you Steve. Great Cheers!
  14. Steve! Fantastic build I must say. Your decks looks awsome. Sadly this log starts after they have been laid. Could you please tell how you finished them? What kind of wood? What color/varnish etc. Keep it up Cheers!
  15. I cant say I have used them, but I have only heard good about them. Cheers!
