Supertug Fotiy Krylov
« on: October 20, 2009, 01:36:37 PM »

Since some times now, i am try to built  the Fotiy Krylov the strongest tug of the worldin scale 1:100.  built in 1978 for the Russian Navy with her sister the Nilcolay Chiker.

since some years i was looking for plans to built this tug and fore info and Photoes. I got many Photoes of Tsavliris and further serving on the internet. when i got everything so i started to built it.



Later the two tugs were in management by Tsavliris in Greece.



Now since 2 years the tugs are back to Russian Navy

This was the first attempt for making a hull. Is the first time i try to make such a big one. Mostly the are small and waterline.



But it was not what i wanted. So i make a new hull and that will be wood.



The accomodation will be make by cardboard and the wheelhouse is a salatlid





and this is the situation this momernt

YES THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL A TUG. ok it is big and also had a hospital. Both tugs are now some kind of escort tugs by manouverings form the russian navy.

The Nicolay Chiker works from Moermansk and the Fotiy Krylov from Vladiwostock.

Fotiy Krylov remake
« Reply #3 on: July 09, 2012, 12:43:09 PM »

Hallo everybody,

Since many problems with making a hull for mine fotiy krylov i  had make a hull in germany.

This ship was mine first and difficult to make for a starter. But it is suche a beautifull ship.

So i started again with building my super tug.

The only thing what is old is the mast, davits and cranes. Everything is now made out of plastik

Here is in photoes the building of the tug.




the hull i recieved by post.


i put on the cardboard version to like how it likes.

Than i started again end rebuild the cardboard in plastic







I placed my motors, shaft en srews







than i placed my bowtruster



I had orderd some tables etc for the inside of the wheelhouse


and with photoshop i make by photoes who i had recieved from Tsavliris the inside.




So we go further with the upperbuilding

i placed plastic strokes like in real





At the towingdeck side i also had worked with photshop

I had a picture of the wheelhouse where you also see something of the inside.
so make resized the picture so it fit to the place. and this is the result



I had maked the decks of plexiglass and put under it the drawings. so i can put the fittings at the right places.





This weekend i started with  putting the stokes at the accomodation.




i also put some windows and doors at there places.


later that day i placed the rudders. i had forgotten to place them.



The weather was so good that i started to painted the hull. first the primer because otherwise the paint will be
fallen of.
When the primes was hard i paint the hull orange.





so this is the update by so far.

That is some great work. I have real admiration for the scratchbuilding work, it's not easy but is well worth it.
Keep it up.

thanks for the reply.

I like it working so small in scale. I had also built for Svitzer a model of the Ievoli Black our coastguard vessel in 1:250


This ship is 1:100 correct Snipah. I like this scale not so big. A friend of my is building this tug in 1:50 than it will be 2 meters !!!!!!

The building is easier because everything is 2 times bigger.

Because it is not finished i had a problem at the club. I had no ship to sail with
So i had buy a tugboat Southampton.

I didn't like the model so i built a New accommodaiton and wheelhouse.
I made the ZEELAND of Wijsmuller



I have make a topic over the conversion of the Southampton

today i have worked at the workingdeck

I placed strokes of plastic and made some holes in it for the towing wires. Where the came outside i placed rollers.

Further i placed some hatches and doors and under the place where the lines come outside i made the connections for the fire-hoses.







The silver wire is such a line  so you put your glases around your neck.

Today, i have the cranes placed at the vessel.

2 at the back. I had first placed a tube which is a little bigger than the of the cranes.

So they can put inside the other. I had do that because a want to change cranes. I had olso built one which has his arm in the air, like he is working.

Between the 2 cranes is in real a connection where the towing line will go over. So there for i placed the tubes and placed the other in it and i can change crane.
