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

Thank you Neptune, You helped me confirm that I will not work for nothing ---- Yours is bigger than mine but if I go with ratio your center frame is 160 over 188 wich is 0.851 and mine is 135 over 160 which is 0.84......... As for the other frame yours is 264 so for me it would mean 264 X 0.85 224 mine is 220 close enough for me :) now i know that I can keep going with my scaling Many thanks again I watched your demos and they motivate me much.
