    Hi guys - if you've been over at kartonbau.de you might have seen my design thread on the Cigar Boat "Ross Winans" The kit is now finally available on my website, www.waldenmodels.com. I've posted pictures of my test build in the gallery!

    Let me know what you think of it.

    Cheers,

    Oliver

    There are two known images, one is a lithograph of the ship at sea, probably made after a sketch drawn from life. The other is an image of the ship on the stocks the day of the launch. This one appears to be a wood cut made from a photograph. You'll find both at

    Both pictures show detail to the extent that you find in my model. I wasn't going to speculate what might have been where ....

    Cheers,
