Hello Neptune, glad to meet someone who is working on the Friedrich. I must say that, so far, most of the infos i got about this ship were pictures and they are not all alike. I mean consider it from an ordinary seaman point of view . I don't have much to rely on but internet and recently : Ship of Scale...The model I have is no laser cut and scale plans etc. no details as to where to start or finish. But thanks to you guys I am now ready to sail away. One thing that I would like to verify with you if I may... What is the width and the height of your center frame. I would like to know if I scaled up my internet plans to the right height. Many thanks for your tutorial so far. Nice work Neptune...! Notawasaga
G'day Notawasaga, thank you for the compliments, here are a couple of pics of the plans and I hope these can verify what you already have,

I hope this helps you out,

Problems are just challenges waiting for your solution. If everything fits like in Plastic world or like a puzzle, there is no fun anymore. I have built since the late 60Th wooden Model, before that Plastic. and yes at least here in Europe thing is changing. Look at the new Soleigh Royal, Agemon etcJohn
yes, I can see what you mean about the differences between the drawings and the reality of the kit. Unfortunately, commercial interests win!
hi, from which country is this ship. It looks the Danish Norske Love or Princh Frederik- from Denmark-only that it looks like a former Model- Bow and Side galleries are different. WELL DONE.
