    I am building this as a treat, a nice little model to keep me going. It is in fact a really great little model!

    I am very impressed, the quality of construction, printing, artistry and instructions are fantastic. Schriber even include the thick (1mm) card required for laminating up the frame.

    http://www.schreiber-bogen.com/ I got mine from Marcle Models.

    Talking of the frame that's what's where the construction begins...

    That looks fantastic so far! Can't believe the print job :shock:
    And as always, I love your presentation style! Thanks for sharing.

    Looking great!!!!!!! I did this kit a few years back as a gift for somebody, and they loved it. I remember that it came with a few different names and color schemes that you could use. Her name was one of the names included "Annika", so it went over real big. Looking forward to seeing the finished model..

    Nice looking build! Printing is very realistic, and you have done a nice job putting it together - clean lines and looking very smooth.

    Plodding on

    Today the Yorkshire rain stopped briefly so I rushed outside and took some pictures in natural light for a change.

    The little boat goes together so well there is not a lot to say. I added a rolled exhaust stack in plain paper then painted it black.

    Opening up the hold was easy, I built a box and poured in bounty from the sea, well discs of silver card and a wash of grey paint to simulate a good haul at any rate.

    This is what card modelling is about... and very relaxing

    On to the mast and winch then prop and rudder...

    Looks great! Glad to see a boat in the thread and not the trains! I might have to grab this one, as it looks very cool! Thanks for the update!

    Very nice, really looks like it is made out of primitive paper (wood).

    Well all done. Things have been tough, work, holidays and a rediscovered love of cycling... but now the dark nights are back I have some card models to finish.

    The boat. A simply fantastic kit, if only all kits were the same. As we said before the printing / textures are superb!

    Very nice work, that really does look like a wooden model, you've done an outstanding job on that.
