  1. Thanks Nils, it will be not seen so much when the garden is fully assembled. And now I am starting to work on the garden tables and have cut the air scuttles. Daniel
  2. Hello John, As your build is very interesting to me too, I have an old plan of a German barque Albert Neumann similar to meteor from 1869, launched and commissioned in Warnemünde/Rostock (Baltic Sea). The plans are a bit rotten and form a German model magazine from 1987. The lines are in 1:200 and some details about rigging and deck fittings in 1:100. All in metric measure. There is a belaying plan included. If it might help you, I can scan it and send it to you here as private mail. Additionally I can recommend the book "Von der Fregatte zum Vollschiff" (from the friga
  3. Each time, when I see one of your builds, I became speechless and am learning how to work precise. Perfect work. Daniel

  7. Hello Gerald, very interesting project. Seeing a sailing vessel afloat; I am sure I am not the only one here on this forum who's heart goes on to see this. Thanks for sharing this pictures. Daniel
  8. Hello Russ, wonderful build. It is a good example how interesting a little tiny vessel can be for modellers. Bravo. Daniel
  9. Hello Jim, I found your log at least. What a great idea to build a vessel with a personal link to your family's history. I lean back and am keen to see further progress. May I ask you from which source/ship you've got the equivalent lines? It would be of a great interest. Daniel
