Building the steamship SCHAARHÖRN


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
A couple of month ago I bought a kit of the steamship SCHAARHÖRN made by Caldercraft in the UK. The kit contains a fiber glass hull, many laser cut wood sheets, about 800 white metal parts, etched brass parts and three scale plans with very limited instructions.

Having built a few models in my life I must say that this one is not for a beginner. So far I have added the drive shafts and motors, finished the basic electrical wiring, painted the hull and added some of the deck features. Reading other build logs, this particular model seems to have ( thanks to some heavy white metal parts) a very high centre of gravity and therefor a tendency to roll. For this reason I added about 2kg of lead ballast on the bottom of the hull and will replace some of the white metal parts with plastic items.
