Small Stuff Posted January 26, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 26, 2014 (edited) Dear friends, as I proofed my Corel-kit being an abbreviation of a 51 3/95 tons Revenue Cutter scaled to 1/64 (instead of the 1:50 advertised on the box's cover!) with an overstreched bowsprit to give it a goodlooking Loa in the sizelist I'm disappointed of the kit! So I go ahead foreward to the original drawing of Howard I. Chapelle in hin famous book: "The History of the American Sailing Ships" page 193. There we can find a propper drawing of the 51 3/95 tons Revenue Cutter (see below). And there will be a plenty of stupid beginners questions like: What material is perfect to fit the requirements of these or those part. So I'm going to start the 1/48 scratch parallel to the 1/64 kit. Hopefully you like it - meenwhile I'm going to my copyshop to enlarge to books drawings up to 1ft = 6,35m\m . Than I'm going to scan the pictures and give you a list of detailled booksides to find them in your public libary arround the corner.
