26th April 2017 - The next big update is here! It comes with about 3,700 new pictures, many new lists and corrected entries! I'll write up a couple more information during the day!

More information on the update can now be found on the Dockside or the 1250 scale Message Board.

Information on the big international collectors meeting in Kassel on May 20th can be found here. If you can, please come, it's absolutely worth it!

The last 150 new models

and welcome to the second iteration of or "collectors' harbour" if that's easier for you. Many things have been done and added since the test-version went up shortly before Kassel 2015, but many things are still missing. Currently we can present you more than 9,000 15,500 19,300 20,000 listed models and more than 4,000 4,500 5,700 6,200 10,000 pictures.

After a bit of a hiatus, I'm managing to get new updates out. Expect more photos to come soon. If you did not know the big blue 'latest pictures' thing is a link to this site where you can see the latest added pictures in chronological order. In terms of new models we are up to date until April 2017. For newer models please check with your dealers until I manage to get those in.

The site is still far from finished. I'd still expect plenty of errors, but once again I'd rather have it online so you can use it. Especially since both the other big reference websites for model ships in 1:1250 or 1:1200 are no longer available. I'd also like to mention that Sammelhafen is new and despite me sharing a first name has nothing to do with previous similar websites.

I also wanted to mention that a lot of the pictures from the old camera have not made it to this version of Sammelhafen. The quality was lacking. During the winter the collection needs to be resorted and cleaned. So that will be a good opportunity to fill a whole bunch of gaps.
