Dear friends and customers,
Once again it's time to remind you that we have a model that we announced the first time about four years ago definitely ready for delivery. This should happen at the end of the first week of December.
In the case of the ECUADOR MARU (Ri-0315), three mould trials were necessary and each model consists of no less than 18-22 parts, depending on how far my A-masts went. (With A-masts are not amongst my favorites!). I did not even try to cast the well-designed light and radar mast in one piece. I have sprayed the hulls to cover the elegant light grey of the hulls and to underline the impeccability of the lines. Of course, corrections were made with the brush.
Each version costs 90,00 Euro.
Next comes our number Ri-0332 and Ri-0332b NORDLYS.
The order totals surprised us, so we must ask customers who have ordered Ri-0332a, the verssion with Hurtigruten funnel markings, but without stern-lettering for their patience, because the order numbers currently exactly match the number of casts. So we will produce these first and deliver the rest afterwards.
With kind regards from Munich,
