 Post subject: HELLER: PAMIR 1/50
PostPosted: Sun Feb 16, 2014 9:31 am 
Just finished building the Heller model of the 4 masted "PAMIR". Good experience. Took me 188 hours, hands-on time with all running and standing rigging. The actual ship went down in September, 1957, near the Azores due to a combination of being in hurricane "Carrie"; poor seamanship on the part of the Master in improperly loading the vessel; and poor maintenance. Unfortunately it took down with it, 45 "in training" German merchant marine Cadets. This meant a lot to me and my classmates who were at that time, on the training ship "State of Maine", at the Maine Maritime Academy.
