    Just delivered is my 1/32-model of "Heartbeat of Life".
    The original Diaship/Heesen built motoryacht was refitted by Moonen and has a lenght of 28,4m. She now is a Moonen 92'. Pics of the original you can find in the "Yacht International" August-issue.
    My waterlinemodel has a lenght of 887mm and is built from pictures and a simple top/sideview of the original only.

    Good job Ernst!

    I have always liked Bacino, but didnĀ“t know there was a sistership. Bacino is now about 4 meters longer and have lost some of her identity, which this one retains...:)

    @KCook

    The model is made with grp-hull and wooden superstructure. Paint is 2-component-acryl and the sunroof is made from tissue.

    @AMG

    Thanks for the compliments, Lars.
    I didn't know, that there is a sistership also.
