Hello,

The previous diorama being finished. I started this day drawings for the next.

The scene will be the large 250-ton crane in the port of Hamburg in 1940.

The ship will be the Bismarck - KIT Revell with the Kit details Pontos Models. As I find interesting to post you the advanced Assembly of cranes and building. But for the Bismarck, there is so much editing of this ship on the forums. That I will not post the Assembly of the ship. I'd start posting the ship during the painting of the effects of the weather.

I spent these last 2 months to draw the different elements of the diorama. The result is 19 boards in A4 format.

The diorama going to 850 mm x 345 mm. Below a plan available to the different scenes.

Image

Looking from the front: on the left a set of work and storage with cranes (4 total). 2 per span on the same track. I've simplified the topic because normally when there are two wheelchair bridges they are on way to rolling bunk.

Below, there will be a fabrication with 3 sets mecanosoudes and finishing court yard. I have scaffolding and characters while you work (riveting, welding and painting). Characters are originally from the 1/700 drawings made by Migou31 for its diorama on mare Island.

At the center of the diorama. The Bismarck (during the visit of the Commander Lindemann for its command). And behind the 250-ton crane.

The latter designs were more complicated than expected. The previous Nagasaki crane is composed of 2 subset (one vertical and one horizontal). It breaks down into 5 subsets. The result 6 Board A4 for a total of nearly 400 pieces. The editing will be more sensitive

Behind the crane two building. 1 represented by its façade and the other a warehouse in wood with an open front. As pictured below.

Image

On the right of the diorama, I planned a feature of the port of Hamburg. The dock of unloading of commercial vessels. At that time there were different (10) docks formed on the same principle. For my part I chose the platform representing a building with a dozen cranes for unloading of materials. Below photos (indicated on the picture source) having served for the stage design.

And of course a rail set with cars and loco. For the loco MIGOU31 gave me his BR50 with tenders board. A big thank you to him.

I will complete the diorama with a set of vehicles (cars, trucks, cars, etc.) to the 1/350th at L'arsenal.

Today, I opened the elements of the kit of the Bismarck by including details from PONTOS Kit.

On the latter, they are planning to replace all the vertical walls with detailed elements of PE. The bad surprise being that all doors are closed. And I like to do open doors. Especially for dock building. Then I'll repaint all the walls by with the doors open.

The following receipt of PE boards.

I wish you a good end of the day.

Best Regards
Alain.

This will once again be an eye-catching project! Can't wait to see the first progress! :woo_hoo: :woo_hoo:
P.S. You will also be making your own set of PE for the Bismarck, right? It would be really great if you could make it available for sale for others as well...
Edit: i just read you will be using Pontos set, so that would be good as well.

Hello everyone,

I finally received my boards of PE (19 boards in A4 format). With a month late or everyone believed the package was lost.

I had already recommended the boards when the parcel arrived. So cancel and explain with Hauler Ltd. They are really super professional professionals.

So these last 5 days, mount the crane. 200 hours of drawings to draw this crane. 420 pieces for a width of 280mm and a height of 215 mm.

When creating the boards I forgot to put a dozen pieces. That's why I can not close the subassemblies.
I present the 1 blank assembly knowing that there are still many details to set up and solve a design problem that I have difficulty understanding (parallelism of the pivot arms of the arrow.

I enjoyed setting up this crane. This is by far the most complicated I have done.

Great work on the PE and design work. You should be proud of the results. I look forward to seeing the next installment.

Will your crane be commercially available from Hauler?

Alain,

Very impressive work so far, I love the diorama plan. Can't wait to see it all start to come together and I will be following with great interest. Best regards.

Hello everyone.

Thank you for your encouragement and your participation in this post.

After the crane, I tackled the construction site, storage with the cranes. This scene which will be to the left of the diorama is 170 mm by 200 mm, for a height of 80mm.

The layout suits me a lot. On the other hand I have modifications to make on:

- one side (the right support) that supports the overhead traveling cranes. I forgot to mirror her boyfriend across the way. It is one of my great classic that kind of forgetfulness.

- And on the upper supports. These should be extended by 2 mm on each side. And also I have to make them higher, because the top of the rolling bridges does not pass underneath.

- Replace the roof of the building which is too large and especially in a thickness of 0.2. Currently it is engraved in a thickness of 0.3 and the hollows are much too pronounced.

Image

Image

I have planned welded assemblies in progress. As well as scaffolding.

The welders and the painter are drawings of Jean (Migou31) that he had originally made at 1/700. I modified them slightly, to make them in double thicknesses and added folds of clothes in order to ease the painting of these last ones.

Image

Image

Image

Image

In the following pictures, the wooden warehouse and open on one side (see layout diagram of the diorama). It is great and with the dock it goes very well. These dimensions are 105 mm, by 46 mm for a height of 36 mm.

Image

Image

I also made handling items. Wagons of two types and vintage devils.

Image

I also made new box formats and reviewed the drawings of the previous ones. Now they are nickel and mounts very easily.

Image

And in the following picture: the 150 cases I have to mount (LOL).

Image

For the other elements of the diorama, I have to review the drawings, because there are a lot of stuff that do not go.

Good day end to you.

Best regards
Alain.
