Yes I restarted and I barely quited the 3rd restart. I will explain it later.I read all pages and not to the end did a realize you are starting over again. However your story is good and I am getting excited about building this beautiful ship for my model railroad layout. It will be a big model at 1:48. I have the room for it and as soon as I get off my cruise will be starting. My biggest hurdle is finding the drawings. So far my emails to several suppliers have remained unanswered. One advantage I have is a laser cutter and a 3D printer.
If anyone can tell me about where to find the drawings, please let me know.

On 1/48 that would be a fantastic built. Why not ordering the plans from Germany? I think its easy to get I only suggest to use translator and quote on German. I got a quick response from here
