    Hi all - the Livadia is progressing. Right now I'm making boats. You're welcome to try the 38ft runabout. Here it is:

    I built your cleopatra and it was an awesome little boat. I built it with the interior and obelisk and it was a great conversation piece. (I gave to a friend at work who took it home at some point) I really like your models. In fact to date thats the only boat I have built so that must mean a lot!

    Download corrupted?

    Every time I download the pdf file (on dial up, 3 times), it gives me something about not being able to open the file. Can't remember what it says, because I've erased it again. Either I'm doing something wrong or the pdf is corrupted. Looks like a neat model, can't wait to see wat it goes on <G>....Eric

    Eric, I just tried and had no problem getting the model. I opened it simply by clicking on the link provided in the first post.

    Great little model, Oliver! Thanks for making it available, and I can't wait to see the Livadia! It's sure to be an excellent model of a unique vessel.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    @ Eric - it might be that you have an older version of Adobe Acrobat? When I created the file, I made it compatible with version 4 and up. I would try downloading the newest version (I think they're up to 8 now) and try, try again.

    Let me know how you make out!


    Cheers,

    @Missy - you can even build it at 1:1 ;)

    Seriously, I think you could build it well at that scale without suffering a loss in fit. I will want to see a picture when it's done!

    Cheers,

    swiftsword and Jim, Thanks for the comebacks. Due to several things (including misplacing User Name & Password) couldn't get back in to answer. Upgraded my Adobe to 6.0 from 4.0 and the download was readable. Again, THANKS!!!!
