S.S. Norderney pre WWII german freighter 1:200

Post by modlerbob » Mon Dec 04, 2017 12:53 am

This is a 1:200 scale card model. This was a small ship. It was caught in port in South America at the outbreak of WWII and after a failed attempt to run the British blockade it was scuttled. The kit is very inexpensive and I found it on ebay. It took me about 5 days to get it to the point you see here. I made my own davits out of heavy copper wire, the boats I shaped from little blocks of balsa and the masts are 1/8" dia wood dowels tapered to 3/32" at the top. I just need to add some rigging.
