What can I say, to this MASTERPIECE- it's like a Michelangelo. Even more, as I build the sistership Norske Love som 40 Years ago - the Stone Age- I am and has been following this Master Work- would like to have a copy of many the images. BRAVO, BRAVO. DO YOU HAVE KARLS address in Flensburg. I was born in Jutland, just on the other side of
the border.

According to drawings by F.M. Krabbe(masterbuilder of those, sister ships) the bow of the model was taken from "Norske Loeve" and ornamentation of stern from "Printz Friderich". I'm trying to do the same mix, but in diffrent scale(1:75) ;p

Interesting project - I guess Karl Ingwer can help with advise if necessary.
Would be great to see your research and construction of the model in your building log of the model :cool:

Hallo,
I see we all are busy in the sos-forum at the same time!
Yes, the three sister ships are made from the same drawings, but there are some alterations in the inside design: Printz Friderich has obviously only one powderroom in the rear, Norske Loeve has two, the second (smaller) at the front. There are some more differences as the draughts of building nr.28 (Printz Fr. 1760) and nr. 35 (Norske Loeve,1764/65) indicate. It's especially the iconographic program that individualizes the tree sisters: Pr.Fr. a lot of virtues; No.Loe. scandinavian flora & fauna and professions; Dronning Caroline Mathilde the happiness of family life and fortuna.
Printz Fr.s figurehead symbolizes the european spirit I think: roman antiquity (dress), christianity (model of a church) and science (pair of compasses).

I have still the Book from the Danish Navy at that time, and one specifically about a 60 guns build from Mr Krabbe with original drawings and notes from Mr Krabbe. I build 40 Years ago the sistership to Prinz Frederic "Noedke Lowe" my first tear build wooden ship - gunships- had done before some fishing .trawlers. I have still these two books free Charge- only payment shipping cost. I am now 75 years old + and have given up building do to health and some economically reason16-holsten 1.jpg
