If I could find some plans/details I would build the 'Kaiserin Elisabeth', or one of the other paddlers, in the Austrian Fleet of 1866 at the battle of Lissa.

I believe she was built in Glasgow but that's all I know.

Bought this kit today on ebay from an NZ seller Overall length 14 1/2"
No need for extra length as I'll not be sailing anymore.

Hi Damien

Sorry to hear you will sail no more....I'm the same but I hope new building projects will more than compensate.

That kit looks almost identical in look and size of the on I lost in a sinking in the 'early '70's that I described in an email earlier although mine was entirely scratch-built. I think I will look for one of these to bring back memories and even to go sinking with lol!!

I didn't realize until I opened the box it's a plastic kit.

I knew that!!

If you want to shed it I would consider a reasonable price plus cheap postage from Aus.

Now that you have mentioned it
Looking at the box stating "186 pieces" may point to a plastic kit.
I guess nobody saw that in the first glance at the box.

Plastic kits can be entertaining and if you don't want to sail anymore
