The consideration for inclusion in the Masterclass Section is when the model is completed, not during the build.

Hopefully,once finished it is assessed for Master Class ,as this is quite a build. Very informative as well as great craftsmanship.

I say there ship mate that is a great idle with the containers I wish I have thought of that with my Aziz build may go back and see I can refit my Aziz with the same type of containers like. Because I still get some water into the boat I do believe it comes from the hatch..

Some progress to report at last:

Been working on the main deck crane, the main components are etched brass, the rest styrene.

Still a bit of work to do before it gets anymore paint.

Wow, Where did you get the brass etchings?

Did you lay those out and etch them yourself? They look great!

Umi,

I wish I was clever enough to do them myself {:-{

They came from a forum member in Germany, I think he has something to do with the OSV society in Europe.

Yes, I had ideas... but I thought I should ask.

A little more progress, pics show the access platform to the crane - made of brass and awaiting paint.

The other pics show mooring bollards in 'boxes' that will sit in the hull as shown in the pic.

I watched Coast, the episode about Norway and there were a few seconds of footage of her towing an oil platform through a fjord.

I should think that within 20 years most ships will have this kind of bow.

I am hoping to restart the Orca build very soon, but at the moment my right hand is heavily bandaged after an accident (modelling related) which makes things a little difficult.

Watch this space!

Change of subject slightly but still based on the X-bow design (don't want to highjack this thread).

I will be heading up to the Ulstein yard in July to take over our companies new vessel, Oceanic Sirius. Built for seismic exploration, she is the SX120 hull and will be the sister ship of the Oceanic Vega that was delivered in July 2010. A touch bigger than the B. Orca at 106m long and 28m wide.

My company is involved in the seismic exploration side of the equation whille the marine management will be undertaken by Eidesvik.

There are plenty of information and pictures of her sister ship (Oceanic Vega) on the internet if you are interested.

Cheers

Is there any way to buy one of the Frets for the cranes, as I have a project to automate one and that would be a great start

Hi Ian

Fantastic build which I am following with interest.

As a complete newbie to model boat building (I'm about half way through my first project, a PT boat) I am keen to know what the material is that you have used in the construction of your Bridge. Looks to be reasonably easy to work with and gives a good finish.  I'm assuming it's some sort of plastic and would appreciate your advice.

Regards
Kevin

Looks like plasticard or styrene as its also known.

Available as standard in pretty much all model shops. You can also source bigger sheets online in a range of colours!

All mated together using plasticweld.

Hi,

Dan is right its styrene sheet, easy to work with and gives a good finish. One thing I have found is that you need to wash styrene with warm soapy water and allow to dry before painting, as it can sometimes collect a bit of a static electric charge.

Update on progress, I have given the hull 2 coats of epoxy and am now ready for the next opportunity to wet/dry it prior to painting.

I suspect he's made it on CAD and had it etched.

If not, i'd also be very interested to find out where its from.

I am afraid I didnt make the etchings myself, have a look at posting no 154 and on. They came from Peters in Germany.

Hi Ian
nice progress so far!

2 weeks ago, we had a small BOW-meeting at the offshore-days of SMC-Uetersen (nearby Hamburg).
5 BOWs from Germany and Switzerland in different stages of building!

https://picasaweb.google.com/103836507340995424120/IOSOffshoreTreffen21052011?authkey=Gv1sRgCPedy_ebpbSF2AE&feat=directlink#5609381210293781458


and about the etching:
Actually there is no more crane available :-(
I should order some ~5 pieces at one time from the etching service, but there was no request the last time.

greets
Peter
