Totally Agree. I have over 40 Years time build 3 of the sister ship "Norske Loewe" This ship goes absolutely up to the very Top Builders as a few from Rusia and France. Well Done Karl. P.S. at 1700 until 1864 the Danish Border to Germany Preussen) was outside Hamburg ant the name of the Ship in Danish is Prins Frederik (Danish Born)Perfect, awesome ship! Unfortunately, it is very rare to see such beauty! Very stylish and neat work. It truly is one of the best in the world.
I HAVE STILL vOLUMEN ONE. It somehow is interested tell me- here or mail- email@example.com- it will be free of charge. the only cost will be the postal cost. as I am slowly closing down -getting too old- but it hearts my hard to through it out to the Bin.Already some time ago, when I posted the last photos - this I will do asap.

It is such a beautiful build, that most of us like UWE only can dream about to build. To me, it is satisfied as a Danish Born and having served in the Navy - direct and in the reserve until the of 50. and have over the time build 3 builds of Prinz Friderich sister Ship "Norske Love (from Kits). It one better than the other.Dear friends,
during my visit of the Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg
(see herefore also the topic https://www.shipsofscale.com/sosforums/index.php?threads/the-shipmodelling-days-in-hamburg-14th-to-16th-september-2018-report-of-my-visit.2465/ )
I had the opportunity to meet Karl Ingwer Malcha and to see in detail his 1:48 scratch model of the Printz Friderich, a danish 70-gunner launched in 1761.
In the following you will see some photos of his extraordinary model i was able to make in Hamburg. Based on this first contact I received from him several other photos he made during the construction of his model, so I am able to make here in SOS a small building log of his model in the next future. I am will also receive additional information about the ship history, the ornamentation, the timeline of her sinking etc., so I am will be also able to share these interesting information with you.
-> First of all many thanks to Karl sharing with us these info!
BTW: Karl is working since 10 years on this model
The light-conditions were not very good, but I tried the best with different settings - Hope you can Enjoy the extraordinary model:

Yes, Jimmy, that is/ was my dream, but too late now. Am now 75 and a well I know, this work has taken over 10 years. This apart, of all the special Tools as Lathe, Freaezer , Mashin saws etc. Thinks that I never had. Came to a Proxcone/ Dremel late 90, so what I have built was all pure crafting done. When I see some of the working/ tool rooms, I am not going jealous, only a bit sad, that when I was building hard 70-80TH.What can I say...? Just stunning work, you would always dream to make at least close enough...
The brassrings and door hinges on the orlopdeck are not blackened because they are not visible on the finished model. They are left to natural oxydation.I am impressed Uwe, I see that you have not made brass rings on the deck hatches black,
Will you make brass details later in the built black?
