Nice pics, and now you know wich cans of paint you have to buy!!
Google earth takes a lot of my time, I managed to find all Iowas, Constellation and Forrestal, NC and Texas in one afternoon/evening/night, plus two Nimitz class.
Should've been studying, but no, I was ship-hunting! :big_grin: :big_grin:

Well, actually Excel has a different deck colour. They found out that when you are trying to keep your cargo at -160°C, it's better to have light decks than dark green ones! So Excel, being second in class, has light grey decks instead of dark green ones.

As the holidays are nearing, and with them the start of my "big" project, I will show two of the most beautiful pictures I have of her. They were taken of the ship's computer so I have no idea who took them. All I know is that she looks GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD:

I do however fear that hull shape... With all its steep bends it's quite a bigger challenge than a battleship! Don't know if Balsa will shape this well.

Ah, with the proper application of water and ammonia, you can bend balsa into pretzels- I've done it. It then dries hard, and shapes just fine!

Now, get on with your way-cool builds! :big_grin:

Quite so, and with the right polymers you can make the finished shape as hard and permanent as an injection molded part.

At least I hope so, because the underwater shape is even more complex. the bow is reasonable, but the stern...
On the other hand, I've never done anything like this, let alone start working with amonia and stuff!

First in line is a 1/700 waterline version, this one might go to the company guys who designed this ship. (the aft superstructure with the swimming pool vents and funnel is nearly finished for that one)
Second will probably be a 1/400 full hull test shape, just for looking at the ribs and the distances between them to consider if the shape is accurate enough. (I've drawn the plans myself, based on the ship's plans, couldn't copy them all though). That should only be a hull, the keel and ribs and some paper to test if it bends around the ribs in the correct way.
And of course, eventually, there will be a 1/200 version that should be built for R/C with superstructure etc.

Hiya Wim,

yes, Ship Nostalgia is one, otherone is Shipspotting.com, although a very slow site. However this site is also good for whatever you want to know. I'm sure there are a lot more people interested in that same subject! (I for one) and Nick is currently building a Maersk ship (you can see it in Picture Post, works in progress). It's a self-made one, but I'm trying to get him into doing a real scale model of an existing ship. I also have pictures of container ships etc.
I was doing a voyage with the pilot once on MSC Lucy and received a full tour by the 2nd mate of that ship. She's one of those 324m long, fast guys...

This is a test to try to attach a photo to a post. Hopefully... (as she crosses her fingers...)

Hopefully, you'll see my current project, as she looked a month or so ago...

Looks like something for pushing/towing? Or an icebreaker, that stern or bow looks oddly familiar, but I can't seem to place it immediately in a context...
What scale is it? And how big is this build? Looks quite big.
One thing is sure, it looks pretty crisp and neat for now!!! Any progress on it?

There's an arrow in the superstructure with something lie 'bow' scribbled under it facing the direction away from the camera. So I think we're looking at the stern. It sure looks nice . Another research vessel?
BTW Lee Anne, I seem to remember from the Debris Field you were working on a Jahre Viking in '700 right?

Gee, you guys are good! Yes, it's an icebreaker, 1/160 scale (model RR N scale) so I can add figures and some details, and yes, I'm the one who was doing a Jahre Viking (and a Torrey Canyon and a bunch of others..).

Here are a couple of updates to the 'Lenin'...
