As inbetween project (to much repetitive stuff with Syren and Sherbourne atm ... ) and as a XMas gift for my father I started this little ship. The Maria HF 31 was a fishing Ewer from Hamburg/Finkenwerder. Thats very very close to where I live btw Build 1880 she operated until 1950. During this period she has undergone several rebuildings, including motorization. The Ship is restored and has it's place in the "Deutsches Museum" in Munich. Another reason for this build was my curiosity about the kits from Daniel Dusek. From what I read and saw on youtube they look very promising (and indeed, they are). First some pictures of the parts. PRO: ++ Very good Wood (Pear!!) ++ Very good laser cutting ++ Very good Photoetched Parts ++ Full lasered planks ++ Double Planking ++ Affordable ++ Solid construction CONTRA: -- Manual -- The images on the packaging (I will revise Pro/Contra while building if necessary) There are all parts to build the Maria as Sailing Ewer or as motorized one. I will build the sailing version. I will try to build OOB but can't promise I allready bought the book "Ewer Maria" with a lot of pictures and informations. Actual State: cheers, Dirk
