That's either the Sheer or Graf Spee. Too bad the operator wasn't sitting under the foremast instead of behind it. Removing the rear seat would be nice as well

Read the bottom line on the page at the end of the link. The site might be called bismarck-class, the "model" is of the Spee.

This goes way back to the original set of posts but as a software developer I get totally POd about people so blatantly violating copyright laws.  Does anyone believe the OP got permission to post those copies of the plans? [:@]

Ken: Dave here. I just went thru the posts again, and I can't believe you lost both of the MOs you were working on! What a bummer. So do you want to get back to doing another one?? I've got one you can resurrect. Do you have the space and are you working now to be able to invest time and $$ into it??? Let me know. Send an email to me: dheinmuller@verizon.net
