Hi folks!

German SoW community is about to model some river ships. First we're searching after line drawings of european river freight ships like this:
http://www.emder-verkehrsgesellschaft.de/images/Bauplan_Schiff.gif

Do you have detailed drawings of such, please?

I strongly urge you to post on model ship building sites where you would be more likely to have success:

Ehm, I may have a few photographs of WWII era ships if that would help...
I would need to find them though; I'm not sure where they are.

When it comes to WWII ship models, I think this one beats all others I've seen:

Think of it; you're having a romantic rowing trip on the pond with your lovely lady, and then suddenly comes the sound of "Ride of the Valkyrie" over the water followed by a two geeks in a 1/20 scale Admiral Graf Spee towards you! Yes, the model has loudspeakers, and he is usually playing Wagner when he is driving it...

Can't beat that!

Can't really expect fight simmers to be authorities on 1940 continental barge traffic. There are ship magazines with sections on barge traffic. Suggest doing some research. P.S. I am an avid ship modeler, but I know zip about barges.
