    sorry guys, but this is the graf spee:
    made by William Terra
    The model is scratch build like a canoe using 2,54 - 10,16 cm (1 - 4 in) bass wood strips and then covered with fiberglass.
    Estimated weight 318 kg (700 lbs).
    The beam is 1,32 meter (52 in).
    The length is about 9,1 meter (30 foot).
    It can carry 2 persons.
    The model is powered by a 15 hp (11,2 kw) outboard engine under rear gun turret.
    It can sail 24 kilometer per hour (15 mph).
    Furthermore the model has a music system build in.
    While William Terra cruise the lakes of Maine he enjoy listen to Wagner.
    The Commander-in-Chief in the photographs below is William Terra.
    William Terra would like to see more models build in this scale.

    Pretty cool boat!

    76 would work for me. My wife likes it at 74, and she's pregnant, so I lose. Not that I mind it cooler.

    Yeah I was going to say the same thing. The Bismark had 4 turrets with 2 15in guns each not 2 turrets with 3 guns each. This is still a remarkable model though! Great find Les.

    I've got a half-finished 1:72 Flower Class Corvetter up in the loft and that's big enough, imagine the Graf Spee in 1:72
