Hi Guys, I have uploaded some photos of tugs I have taken over the years, my photo library is now holding well over 15,000, these are of all sorts of ships, if you need any photos I will endeavour to post them. Cheers, Dan.

Would you happen to have the following in your inventory:

Seaspan Royal
Seaspan Regent
Genmar Wave
Genmar Storm

I'm building the 'Royal' at the moment, in 1/28 scale

Thanks

 Thanks very much. No wonder I've never found pics of her I didn't know they renamed her. Certainly looks in sad shape in the yellow scheme.

These pictures are excellent.

I am especiall interested in the pacific blade or any of her sister ships as i am going to be building a model of her within the next couple of weeks.

Also do you have any shots of the wimpey seahunter?


Thanks

hi dan,

those really are some great pictures of various vessels :-)) , how do you manage to get so many and  so close up?
i am planning to build a 1:50 scale model of the Smit  Rotterdam and since you seem to have so many pictures i was wondering if you have any pictures of the Smit Rotterdam you could share with me

many thanks, Dan

Thats a good photo.  It shows alot of the detail towwards the bow of the ship & the life boats.  I  havent detailed the model of my wimpey seahunter atall but as soon as i can gather enough info i will.  This photo will help alot!

Thanks!

Dan (Sea Mariner)

  One of the things I like most about your pics are the overhead shots that show the decks, particularly aft decks. The amount of paraphernalia aboard that makes a more interesting model. Its an area we landlubbers rarely see, so your photos bring it to life and allow us an insight into what we can, or can't, include as detail on the decks of our various tugs.
  Keep em coming......all good stuff.

Good Morning Garabaldy, if you are not aware, there is another site similar to this one called MODELTUGFORUM.COM on there is a fantastic set of photographs of a 'walk-around' on the Pacific Banner (sister to Pacific Blade) these are very handy detailed photos that will help you with your model. Regards, Dan.





Im glad you found them helpfull. Ron1

I live a good 30 miles out of the city so my nearest water is either a river of the loch of skene.  I used to live in the new flats just beside bonacord glass but imoved from there just as i started getting back into boating.  The regatta was great.  Lots of nice models.

Any luck with that e-mail?

Thats a long way!  I  have recieved 6 emails from you all within 10 minutes or so.  Hotmail must be misbehaving!  The photos are excellent!  They are going to be a huge help when i start buidling.  Like some one said before you have some great shots which show the ships from higher up allowing us to see whats on the decks.  What kind of SLR do you use?

Again, cant thank you enough for the photos.

excellent shots. Abeille Flandre is a vessel I've had aspirations to scratch build if I could find drawings. Its interesting to see how relatively small the rudders are on such a large vessel.

Hi Chingdevil,
Yes that is an anchor rigged for slipping, she must be an anchor handler. Some one was saying they wanted some Bugsier pics, hope these are okay.

Post by: Garabaldy on December 12, 2008, 10:18:06 AM
the balder and vidar vikings are some of my favourite tugs.  They are often docked in aberdeen harbour so i see them all the time.  I never knew they were icebreakers until recently though.  One day maybe i will model one of them :-)
Title: Re: Photos of TUGS & OFFSHORE VESSELS
Post by: Garabaldy on December 12, 2008, 12:40:45 PM
That would be an awesome feature to build into a a model!  Do you have any photos showing the cranes?  Cant quite make them out on these ones. 

Now to try and get some plans......

I am not to sure how many people have seen this one, she sits just across the water in Holland, not far from the Hook van Holland.

she was Built in 1916, and as far as i know the last working triple expantion steam engine in her, she was changed from coal to oil in the 1950's

can be visited, and if your lucky or phone prior, can have a trip on her.  :-))

I presume that foredeck on "Highland Prestige" is to shed heavy seas.

If so, they must expect to sail in very, heavy weather! Not for me thank you!

Post by: Garabaldy on January 28, 2009, 12:49:07 PM
That style of bow seen on the highland prestige seems to be th norm on all new ships which operate in the north sea.  The "x bow" will do the same i expect.

Some excellent photos' there Dan,

I would love to have the skill and dexterity to make a scale replica of that one ! Guess the electrics would be quite complicated as well - do my eyes deceive me or are there really THREE bow thrusters and TWO stern thrusters.
........and as you say, windows and handrails galore %%
..........and then there's the cranes and Helideck.

OK then, maybe after I retire........hmmmm.

Dan,

Remember "Never apologise"! You can post photos of any vessel which is as interesting as those you have shared with us.

You do realise, I hope, that you are responsible for inspiring many Mayhem Members to think about building some of the fascinating ships you photograph. So, enraged partners; protesting bank managers; frustrated builders all want your telephone number, please.

Excellent photos, please keep them coming.

Wouah, superb topic... All the ships I like  :o

Thank you Dan ! 

And Aberdeen, such a nice place, I was there last June for work and I 've the chance to take some pics of two of my favorite AHTS : the swedish yellow and black.

I've hundred of detail pics for those two ships, unfortunuatly I've no pics of the third Vidar

Just for fun and as Dan have the Xbow Bourbon Orca as signature pics : the model on which I'm working actually (1.82 meter - 60 kg when loaded ...)

I've a correct plan of the Orca but I can't disperse it ... Sorry 

Anyway my hull is not the Orca. It's a little bit larger one as I'm not interrested with the Orca itself (I don't lake green  ;D)

Superb pics.
Considering the conditions these vessels work in...i.e. the weather...I am very surprised how clean, neat and tidy they all look. Hardly a sign of weathering anywhere. Is this down to good maintenence or high quality "paint"?
I have noticed that many "continental" fishing vessels coming into North Shields display a similar pristine appearance. Whereas the majority (not all) of the local boats look like rust-buckets even when quite new. Or is it a "mind set" between nations? BY.

Dear Foger in France!

There was a free plan in the February edition of Model Boats Magazine of the Sea Shephard by J. Pottinger.
I think it is to a scale of 1:50. but I have left the plan at work to get copied so I am not too sure.

Hi, I work offshore on a pipelay vessel. I have collected pictures of some of the supply vessels that have been involved with the projects i have worked on.

I can send full size pictures to anybody who requires them...

The vessels featured are:

Grampian Surveyor
Boulder
Normand Fliipper
Sea Lynx
Fairmount Summit

I hope these can be of some help

thanks Davie, if i say so myself, thats not a bad looking vessel, actually quite attractive compared to the x-bow horiffics.

I may get some of malc reade's port holes and drill through into the sides of nord icelandia (not all the way, enough to make an indent into the hull) then put the port holes on her.

Post by: Xtian29 on May 21, 2009, 05:09:13 PM
Hello

The Forties Shore was not this Sea Panther (as you see the picture shows a fully different ship !)

The former Forties Shore is actually named Amarco Leo under Panama flag

http://www.amarco-group.com/vesselspecs/index.htm

About Xbow, I was thinking like you Ghost but I've changed my mind, in fact it's like cars or everything you just need to accustom your eye.

When I was young I was a Volskwagen Golf I lover. Then the Golf mark II appeared and I was thinking, "the nb 1 still the best"  ... Then the mark III appeared and I was thinking "humm the nb 2 have a better look" ...  I don't know now  Mark IV or Mark V ? ... Anyway now when I see a old Golf Mark I in a street I don't understand why I was so negative with change, and it's worst if I have to drive it  ...

It's the same for boat...   Our eyes and our brain are used in a kind of conformity.  

I'm a seaman and if tomorrow I have the choice between 28 days in winter in North Sea aboard of the Bourbon Orca or aboard of the Forties Shore, I don't have to think about the answer !

 I'm not sure what has happened, but thanks for posting the photos you did. They were great for all modelers.

Neil

You are not losing ther plot.

It does appear that all of Dan's posts in this thread have been removed.

I think we would all be greatful for an explanation as to why the posts need to be removed if a forum member decides to leave?

Any mods care to comment about the post removal please?

Thanks
Jules

Sea Mariner was banned for an offensive posting in another thread, when the ban was implemented he stated he wanted all his photos removed from the forum. Martin did ask him to reconsider after his ban had expired
When his ban expired he once again asked for his photos to be removed from the forum, Martin has complied with this request.

So Neil and others you are not going mad

bonjour

 Avec un ami nous construisons ce bateau de 170cm et de 50 kg environ
 lui a fait les Z-durs et les propulseurs d'Etrave (tous fonctionnels) et moi je fait le reste (c'est très lourd)
 J'ai eu beaucoup de difficultés pour obtenir les plans que je ne peux donner à quiconque.
 Mais j'ai le moule de la coque en fibre de verre.

   
hello
  With a friend we build this ship of 170cm and 50 kg
  he made the Z-drives and bow thruster (all functional) and I did the rest (very heavy)
  I had many difficulties to get the shots that I can give anyone.
  But I have the mould of the hull in fibreglass
