Hello

BMK and I have got an agreement during the Oberschleissheim to make a line of 1/700 resin kits, with me doing the masters and Burkhardt caring for the PE and turned parts. We decided to concentrate on the merchant and cargo ships. My master models will most likely be based on the plans from Werft Reederei Hafen magazine from the 20es and 30es - see literature section for the indexes of the yearbooks.

First master model is now finished and will leave today to Burkhardt for PE design. This one will be a small river freighter, which would be a common sight in any sea harbor. The prototype of this model are the fast motorships Cimbria and Normannia, built by Schiffswerft und Maschinenfabrik Christof Ruthof, Mainz-Kastel and Regensburg, for N.V. Reederij v/h J.H.Koenigsfeld, Rotterdam, in 1928. It is typical enough ship to be converted to many of those thousands of similar ships plowing all major european (and most likely american) rivers.

The master looks like this:

If you have any comments, I would be happy to hear them!

Looks nice. Putting the wheelhouse in the back and a adding a large mast would make it a 'luxe motor'. For may european harbors between 1920 and 2000 a 'spits' ('peniche') would be a good subject. There's a number of them available in paper which can be rescaled but a more direct approach in resin gives better results I think. And then there's the classic Rhine tugs + barge combinations which could be combined diorama wise with SS Drumgeith in loading/unloading.

Hello,
I read your message concerning the model of the Cimbria just yesterday and I am curious if the model-kit was finished and can be bought.

Unluckily not - it took severe damage while in the post and arrived deformed... Also many things could be done better. I am considering to re-build it however, in 1/700 or maybe in 1/350.

After a few years, I finally got her up as a product on shapeways. Now it is fully digitally designed and ready. 1/700 and 1/350 are online, 1/200 in upload. I will be doing 1:144, 1:160, 1:220, 1:288, 1:300, 1:400, 1:450, 1:500, 1:600, and 1:720 scales too (by upscale/downscale).
