    Hope this works, as this is my first try at posting pics.....
    This is one of my first kits. It's the 1:400 VATERLAND from J.F. Schreiber.
    I enjoyed it so much, I bought their TITANIC & NIEUW AMSTERDAM kits yesterday.
    I feel so daring these days, I even bought a JSC kit! (Edmund Fitzgerald):grin:

    Very impressive work! I experimented in reducing this model to 1:700 scale, and it's still about 16.5 inches long. That project's on indefinite hold since I wanted to open up the prominade and boat deck, and I was unsatisfied with the deck texture. Now I'm wondering about building this model in 1:1200 scale to go with Ralph Currell's new Titanic.

    I also wanted to depict the S.S. Vaterland in her later career as the S.S. Leviathan. See: http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/britannic/images/4_leviathan.jpg

    Good luck with your Titanic and Nieuw Amsterdam!
