Hello everyone

Welcome
I don't know if this is a good department, but I would like to show you the construction of a 1/75 scale Edda Flora inspection ship bought in Germany from Bauer Modell.
The model is intended to be RC. I bought a laminate hull with a deck and plans (4 sheets A0). The deck material will be HIPS 2mm reinforced from below with foamed 6mm PVC. The superstructures will be milled parts of HIPS of different thickness.

Short technical description:
Edda Flora was designed for IMR and geodetic operations and began operations in 2008. Edda Flora proved to be a very efficient vessel for IMR and geodetic operations. It has a De-ice record, with covered lifeboats, mafia boats, bow zone and hangar. Edda Flora's accommodation and office facilities have a very high standard, creating a good working environment for the crew and shore clients.

Vessel specification:

Year of construction: 2008
Design: base ship IMR ST-254
Class: 1A1 ICE-C SF
LOA: 98.00m
LPP: 82,20m
Width: 20.0
Draft: 8.00m
Accommodation: 70 people
Sea crane: SWL 50Te @ 15m (100Te @ double fall) AHC
ROV system: 2 WROV, 1 OBSROV
30Te module handling module (MHS)
The hull with decks, superstructure and other RC equipment looks like as below on some photos

Great choice. Love that retractable thruster, very curious to see that in operation. :woo_hoo:
Strange to see a vessel like that propelled by Voight-Shneider thrusters rather than Azithrusters/Azipods/Z-drives.
