    Thank you for your response.
    Well aware of the Esso Tanker site. The first of the launching right were I was standing as she came down the slip. The second is actually from the 2. Esso Deutschland built in the 70's

    Thanks for your encouragement. Fully aware of length. My first model was 130cm but found many details very hard to replicate unless I find a cheap photo etch shop.
    My next trip to Germany, maybe next year, will require me to do a trip to the Deutsche Museum in Muenchen. They have a professional done model 1:100 which I kept visiting as a teenager at the storefront window from Hamburger Abendblatt. This is the only model I know of in existence in the original version when she was delivered by HWH in 1963. Later bulbous bow, removal of crowsnest and different paint scheme were the alterations shown in some of the Auke Visser gallery I have been visiting often.

    Welcome to retirement JockScott and fellow Canadian. Look to follow your build. You will find members helpful don't be shy on asking questions. You may also look at N-scale (160) for parts.

    Welcome Jockscott.
    Happy retirement,a great feeling as most of us know.
    Your project sounds a good project and I look forward to seeing and assisting in anyway possible along with other members on our site.
    Perhaps when you can,post some pictures of your plans and ideas and start a build blog (see the blog section,itโ€™s easy to access).Pictures of the actual boat would be great,but I attach a couple of pictures which I think relate to her.
    Regards Bill.
