    Hi @lewz, I took a look at aerofred, the โ€œdrawingโ€ is a couple of pictures and a print and cutout for a cardboard model of the Scharnhorn. Nothing you could build from. If you want it, pm me. Drawing is for a 16.5 cm model.

    Well, the two larger hulls (Nelson/Rodney and Warrior) now have new homes.

    After sorting the River Gunboat Paddle Steamer I bought from the same auction Iโ€™ve been doing lots of reading about Paddle Steamers and have decided to keep the Waverley. Will have to store it for a while as this will be a major project but Iโ€™m enjoying building to 1:48 with the BYMS so a 60โ€ 1:48 Waverley could be fun.

    Neil, if you do decide to let go of the Waverley let me know.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Well, made the decision to sell 3 of the larger hulls, I went to the auction to buy 2 boats, came back with 9. It is tempting to keep the Waverley but I have enough projects to keep me going for a few years, and a couple of other boats I want to build.

    Am keeping the Shaarhorn, the Aerokit Sea Rover copy, RAF launch, narrowboat and the Dumas Coast Guard kit will be built next year.

    The three largest hulls and the HMS Crane kit are now on ebay, if they sell thatโ€™ll be great, if they donโ€™t then Iโ€™ll have to revisit the project list!

    Well, I tried this "aerofred.com" site and well... I had lots of issues. What a bummer as it looked like an answer to what many seem to be asking about: plans and drawings.

    1. If you are unregistered there is no search option on the site. You can sort, i.e. boats, planes, etc., but no search for a particular item.

    2. The "register" experience on a mobile phone is horrible, small boxes show only partial info and no way of seeing the password ("*****"). Constant errors with the verification process.

    3. You can find a specific item ("Schaarhorn" in this case) by using Google search as "aerofred.com Schaarhorn" and you should get to the item. However... (next)

    4. You can't access any thing usable unless you register and that can be the next step in frustration, even on my PC.

    5. If you are lucky enough to register when you want to download the free pdf - WOW - you have to download two applications to get anywhere (I assume., I decided to interrupt this process and uninstall the apps >>>). I looked those up and the were considered "do no harm to your computer" but do take over browsers.
    (NOTHING LIKE INSTALLING SOMETHING YOU MIGH REGRET HAVING.)

    This was way to much for me to continue with, perhaps someone else might do better. I found this very suspicious having all this to just download some free pdf files.

    More reading on "OneLaunch" found on Reddit: While not specifically malware, the actions and liberties it takes on a computer is very close to it. This what is called a browser hijack tool. They effectively force ads and search results from their "partners" to drive traffic and such to them. Desktop toolbars are nonsense software now. No one needs them for anything and will often be told they need to download and install it to proceed with whatever they are doing.

    That site should be aerofred.com - I was curious so I checked it out. I'm having problems logging in to their phone app, will try later on my PC.

    That's about the price of a Flysky 6 an an esc. Is that printed on parchment and shipped in a round tube so the drawings are not creased?

    From what I've seen on the site I linked it looks like most of the details are there. Just adds to the challenge of builld I mg this model.

    Thanks LewZ

    I contacted the main dealer (Jotika) to see if I could buy the plans, they want ยฃ46 for the plans, more than I paid for the lot of 2 boats, 4 hulls and a kit!

    I don't see any complete plans directlyโ˜น๏ธ. However๐Ÿ˜Š, if you can't find full plans here are some links you will probably be able to use if you don't mind gathering pieces if information (mainly measure) using photos like these:
