Dear friends and customers,
Slowly you have to feel that nothing is happening at Risawoleska.
The opposite is the case: "behind the scenes" we work feverishly on all sorts of projects.
We have taken up older, once unsuccessful projects as well as others started new ones or continued.
Actually I do not like to publish pictures of models that are under construction and unfinished, because there are no guarantees that these models can be produced.
But to prove that we are not lying lazy in the sun but are extremely hard-working (and because I am so proud of our new master models), I fill this slideshow with master models in different stages of completion:
You can see the original models of the following ships:
AUSTRALIS (five versions planned), KONG OLAV and PRINSESSE MARGRETHE, PRINSESSAN BIRGITTA, VICTORIA (Lloyd Triestino 1930), GULLFOSS, STENA GERMANICA and STENA BRITANICA (all color varieties), DEL MAR, DEL NORTE and DEL SUD, SELMA DAN and TANJA DAN (all variants - also Greek), SAGA ROSE and PILSUDSKY. Also on display is the classic American West Coast fishing boat WESTERN FLYER, on which John Steinbeck undertook the expedition, which he described in his magnificent book "Log From The Sea Of Cortez".
Surprisingly, you will find a very well-built original model of the MARGRETE LÆSØ. The original model does not (unfortunately) come from me. I would be very proud of it, especially if it had been my first prototype, as is the case with the builder Mr. Langbehn from Hamburg. But I will gladly produce the model in my series.
And still these are not all models in the works.
The hull of 19m SRB of the DGzRS (H.J. KRATSCHKE, HANS LÜKEN and GÜNTER KUCHENBÄCKER) is not very meaningful in to be photographed in scale 1:1250.
The sisters VISBY and GOTLAND, completed in 1981, are already well advanced, but also not yet ready to be photographed. And - to end with a "bang" - we started with the CONTE DI SAVOIA. Probably to make us unhappy because this ship contains all the components that are difficult to produce. But for the future we want to be optimistic.
Please do not be surprised if they do not hear from us for a long time. In the light of the above communications, it should be clear that all of this requires a considerable time. Please order models only when we can report them as "successful casted". In the meantime, my wife is working on the processing of "old" models, so it is still worthwhile examining our lists every now and then for the availability of models that have long been out of production.
Finally, you will find an exciting series of photos with the repair of a completely destroyed KUNGSHOLM. So we are also a repair shipyard. I would like to ask the owner of the model to contact me.
With warm regards from Munich
