    In Australia Southern Cross Models do a 72 Scale Velarde hull.
    Recently a building buddy and I have got a hull each and we have just started. Southern Cross do a set of plans in 72 scale which are quite good. The link for Southern Cross models is https://southerncrossmodels.com.au/index.php

    Hope this helps. Also any photos that are available would be welcome as the plans often do not tell the full story.

    I was hoping that I could get away using it on a 00 1:72 layout but I think it might be to noticeably out of scale. I could possibly try and use it towards the rear and use depth perception. But I think something this grand needs to be a centre piece. That and its very similar to the ships my dad used to go to sea on.

    Hi Phil.
    Did build this model, but finished it as M.V TEAKWOOD. Wrote block on it, but under the Teakwood name. It is still there, just checked.
    Would guess the doors are about 1/2" high, do not have ready access to the model to check.
    Hope the blog helps

    Hi, did you get the model built in the end? Im keen to know as I was looking at the same boat myself. If you still have it would you be able to measure the accommodation door heights please? Doesn't have to be totally accurate.
    Regards

    Have decided to build this ship as my next project, using a Deans Marine GF hull. Will scratch build from there on.
    The are very few details of this ship available on the net, probably because the vessel was built in Germany.
    Has anybody else built a model of this ship and have any advise or suggestions before I start to do the planning?
    Thanks
