    Well done, I am scratch building 1/24th scale "Californian" because I couldn't find a "kit" as beautiful as yours, what/where/who offers it?

    Hi Pond Pirate,

    The hull is really great....fiberglass from SC&H ship models.  Unfortunately, they quit the business and have already sold remaining kits, hulls and parts.

    I know of no one that supplies a similar hull.

    I also wish hulls were available...I am confident about building, rigging, etc, but not about my ability (or desire) to take on a hull.

    Best,

    Dan

  2. Nils,

    Thank you.

    The model is about 1.6m long on deck, and about 2.1m long with bowsprit.

    The lead keel is 18kg, and is removeable.  Overall sailing weight (lead keel + model) is 35.4kg.

    The yards are rotated by R/C.  The foresails, foremast yards, mainmast yards and spanker boom are on 4 separate servos.  The rudder is also R/C controlled.
