    I had another go later and it did open, but it appears to be a plastic kit and he wants to build a biggish RC model. Great pity because Passat was built as a sister ship to Peking.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Sorry to hear that the Ebay links won't load Nerys, they are quite big boxes by the look of them, and are 1/150 scale kits and are 'PAMIR' and PASSAT', you will probably know of them, very beautiful masted long ships.

    Cheers, Pete

    Hi Pete, Thanks for your help, but clicking on the link, it came up 'page missing'. The problem with anything large from Ebay would be getting it to my friend, he lives in Australia.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Nerys, regarding the sailing boats, are these any use to your friend, they are quite large kits, I am not very knowledgeable on sailing ships, so forgive if they are incorrect.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Cheers, Pete

    Thank you Doug and Colin for your help with the Kruzenstern kit, actually I already knew about that and the kit of the Japanese Moshulu and had told my friend. Unfortunately they are both quite small plastic kits and I think he wants something bigger. He is quite an experienced model builder having built a number of barges. I don't think he is expecting absolute accuracy as long as he can produce a model that's 'as near as makes no odds' which is why I suggested he looked at the Underhill plans. Incidentally, I thought that Peking had three sister ships, Passat (museum ship in Travemunde), Pola and Priwall. I will look out the articles on square rigged sail that were in Model Boat Magazine recently, scan them and send on to him.

    All the best, Nerys

    Hi Nerys,
    Parma and Pommern were a little different from Peking and somewhat smaller, 95m compared with 115m (sparred length), 98m deck length for Peking.
    Colin has done well finding a kit of Kruzenshtern which as built as 'Padua' was a sister to Peking.
    The kit box legend says 'Russian' but she was built in Bremerhaven, Germany.
    She now belongs to Russia, since the end of WW2, and is still active as a training ship.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS Colin please post the link to the Kruzenshtern kit for Nerys to pass on to her 'old mate'๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Good find Colin, well done๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    Kruzenshtern (or Padua as built in 1926) was a sister ship of Peking/Arethusa and the last of the famous P-Liners built. Pamir being perhaps the most well known/notorious of the P-Liners built for the F. Laeisz shipping company.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
