  1. Hello Patrick,
    sorry for bothering you with a question.

    I am currently collecting information for the "Bouée de sauvetage".

    Therefore, I allow myself to ask you if you have any further information for this lifeboye.

    I am also not clear how the ropes are bound in detail about it.
    Also pictures and drawings would be welcome or references to contemporary technical literature.


    With best regards


  2. I've just indulged myself browsing your build of La Creole including the ships boats. WOW. man you're just crazy! Top of my list of modelling Gods in ANY genre. Surely the German state should give you a pension for life, for services rendered to your country.

    Question:- everywhere I look the only plans of ships boats longer than my thumb are in the Anatomy of the Ship series of books. Please tell me where it's possible to get decent sized drawings of these boats. Or is the photocopier the way to go?

    I'm getting a little old for Hero's. You're an exception.

    My regards.

      in advance I would like to thank you for the nice words.
      I am very happy about that, thank you.
      The 1:48 scale plans for the boats of La Creole were drawn by Jean Boudriot.
      If you want it, I can give you these as PDF's.


      Best regards

    Hi Dirk, unfortunately, I can only come up with excerpts. I hope that's okay too. You have my permission to use any/all of these endorsed with the MSW/NRG watermark.

    Hi Thomas, you have created an extraordinary model. Finest model construction art! I especially like the combination of wooden boat and the old steam technology. Just fantastic! Best regards Johann

    Hi Dave, the construction of the HMS Victory as a model is already a great challenge. This was solved by you in an excellent manner. A very nice ship model. Best regards Johann
