Maureen and John ,
Hello Uwe, your kind words and support means a lot to us. Still have a bit of clean up to do and add some cargo to these empty holes, but that will come in time. Just about to the point of marking out and cutting off the building jig that will make her look like a real ship, Thanks.Very good work my friend - looking really good
Hello Jim, I thank you very much for your visit. Yes the cut outs were to enable the viewer to be able to see the inter workings of this little ship. Oh I could of left some of the deck planking off to do the same thing but I wanted our little ship to be a bit different. Still have a lot of detail to add below deck but that will come in time, Thanks.At first, I kinda wondered when you covered with desk planking accommodations you build under. Now, I get it, you can see it from starboard openings. Great idea and awesome result.
Hello Jim, Thank you for your very kind words, Yes the real fun is about to begin. Now I must decide just how much detail I want to add and to where.Hello Lawrence, it does, for sure one of the exciting moments. Now she looks like a ship! And now , the real fun begins!!!
Hello Knut, I thank you very much for your very kind words. Yes I was a bit nervous at the removing of the building jig but really it was very easy, it surprised me very much so.Wow Lawrence, this looks really good, I bet there were a lot of nerves in the air when you released the model from the jig, good luck.
Hello Janos, Yes I know that Harold Hahn gave almost no info at all in his plans for the inside of his ships outside of the Galley Stove. I get most of my info from the T.F.F.M. and a few drawings on the web. The Captains Bed is from memory of some of the tanker ships that I have sailed on, it may not be correct for the 1777 area but it does seam to fit in and it is a bed, my two cents worth.Lawrence,
What plans are you using for the inside (cabin walls layout and shape)? There is no in formation about this in the Hahn-plans.
