    Great job on those little bitty boats! That is my downfall (one of many!). Thanks for the great thread and pictures!

    Superb craftsmanship FLU! Absolutely beautiful!

    You really are a natural at model building and I am fascinated by all of your builds!

    Flu,
    I have really enjoyed this string....superb build, very clean....and I just love your "recycling effort" with the yogurt cup windshields! Three idea eggs for that!

    Flu, thanks for taking the time to post so many pictures of your magnificent build.

    I'm still reeling from the tiny propeller and propeller shaft on the underside of the lifeboats. :-0

    Inspiring and intimidating at the same time! ;-)

    that´s too much praise..........

    Hi friends,

    thank´s for the praise, but......I`m afraid, it´s too much..........

    Next I have to tell you a big mistake........because of a meeting of cardmodelers on saturday there was not so much time for modeling, I forgot to make pics during finishing al the barges an rowing boats.....sorry guys.

    But the pics with the model and the boats on it are nice, enjoy it:

    the rowing boats:

    Hoche vs Schleswig-Holstein

    This evening, 5018 views for Hoche, 5240 for the Schleswig Holstein. Competition is exciting, since both ships are rather out of fashion. Will all these oldies come to life (as models, of course) more and more after being ignored such a long time?

    Simply breath taking, Flu!!

    Renaud, I hope you're right, a lot of the older ships have a unique charm to their appearance, and I love seeing them!

    Cheers!
