TS Hamburg 1969

My next model after SS Frisia is supposed to be Deutsche Atlantik Linie`s TS Hamburg of 1969. I want to cut out the windows, so I need some information about the Promenade Deck behind. I have not been able to find any pic of that area. Can anybody help? As on Maxim Gorki that area that remained after some suites had been erected had a blue floor, I assume that there was no teak deck. All deck plans lack details of window configuration at the back of the Promenade. Also I cannot imagine that there were just deck chairs in place, as Hamburg was a pure cruise ship in tropical waters and that area would have been stifling.

I am still working on the frame. As various builders had such difficulties with the framework and the shell plating I decided to split the frame up into four parts. That way I can carefully arrange finn cardboard or cardboard-compatible cement. Later both can be fine-tuned by using sand paper. In addition finn cardboard can be pre-shaped nicely and stays in form. The shape of the shell plating is going to be tested with a copy. I can then decide if I should leave some overlap at the ends of the middle section. In contrast to the other builders I want to build the promenade deck with its fittings as well.

By the way: JSC has published a 250-scale Normandie. Together with some pictures from a good model displayed at a French Maritime Museum it should make a great-looking model. My fingers are itching. But I also want to build Queen Mary.....

The Normandie from JSC is in scale 1:400.
Scaldis rescale that model in scale 1:250

And it's already in my stock...

The TS HAMBURG is really a beautiful ship and I would appreciate a build by you. I have often seen her as MAXIM GORKY at the Columbus Pier in Bremerhaven under soviet flag and she was one of my favorites. Your idea to solve possible problems with the hull construction sounds very interesting and maybe will show others how to manage this part in a different way, so do not hesitate and show exactly how this will work

I am also prowd owner of the scaldis NORMANDIE in 1;250 scale and I am deeply convinced of building her sometimes. Compared with the number of parts of the rescaled 1;250 QUEEN MARY she seems to be less detailled. Maybe the cause is her puristic design but nevertheless she is the one and only queen of the oceans for all the times although I confess that there are lots of princesses (as the TS HAMBURG, the QUEEN MARY and so on...)

Right, I keep messing JSC and scaldis up. In Saint Nazaire Maritime Museum, Le Havre Town Hall and Marinaland Cote dÁzur there are nice detailed models of Normandie (as well as on Queen Mary in Long Beach). Thanks for the pictures and links.

The Promenade Deck reflects some of the 1969s style....

Now I ended where all the others ended: the shell platung fore is a nuisance. The parts are way too short, the cardboard is too thin so that it buckles. Not very nice. I prefer the thickness of jsc. My 33rd Model, but I have never had such difficulties
