    These are my active ships at the moment.
    There are always repairs to be done, but it's always amazing to see these models on the water.

    What a surprise!
    When someone dies, you leave a gap . . Well, in my case it was my cousin of the same age. Stories that life writes!
    But it also has its crazy side. I received a personal package from the notary along with the inheritance distribution . .and guess what was in it???
    Her former alarm clock, whose melody I loved so much, a stick with childhood photos of the two of us and . . . My favorite ship from my childhood, which I had probably forgotten at her place and always missed. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ
    Iโ€˜m happy, Michel-C.

    I think you managed it cleanly. I like it very much.

    Hello Wolle!
    Mine looked like this too, I treated the inside and outside of the hull with eze-kote.
    First with 1/2 eze-kote and 1/2 water, then after drying with 100% eze-kote.
    I glued reinforcements to the inside in advance. This makes the fuselage stable again.

    See photo:
    Here was the biggest problem, you can still see it. But in the water I always drive out of sight, so nobody can see it! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

    Servus, Michel-C.

    I actually found some pictures. It doesn't look too bad, but the whole ship was porous.

    Hello Wolle, hello Colin and all those who visited me here,
    Wolle: this is the pilot from Graupner, I built this in 1985, but with my imagination.
    Colin: No unfortunately I don't live directly on the water, but our club pond is not far from here. Look at the plan.
    I'm working on a bicycle trailer to get to it . . . For the next year! โ˜บ๏ธ
    Here are a few autumn photos
    Ciao Michel-C.
    Ps: The last photo especially for the joy of the icebreakers

    Hello Mike
    You have a nice fleet of ships there. I like it. This ship is Graupner's pilot boat, right? I'm pretty sure about that, because I also had this on the workbench as a restoration project. Unfortunately it couldn't be saved.

    Stunning models sir, do you live by the water outside the window. That's handy for boat modelling.
    Cheers Colin.
