With this post, I'm beginning a build log for Leon. 302 tons, built in 1880 in Norway, traded until 1915. Model is 1:48, about 2 1/2 ft on deck. Structure is all Swiss Pear, planking - internal and external is Pau Marfin, rail and wale is Indian Rosewood. Much planking and decking will be left off so that the internals will be visible. I just ordered 6 little oil latterns with LEDs that will eventually light up the interior of the hold. Most helpful resources so far are Underhill's Plank-On-Frame Models, Crother's American-Built Packets and Freighters of the 1850s, Tosti's Young America
