towing Bollards?
« on: September 18, 2010, 04:01:45 PM »

Is there a standard size for Bollards on tugs of all denominations ?  I know that Tugs come in differant
sizes, does the same apply to bollards or do they have to be of certain specific safety regulations.?

generally the 'bollards' are all of similar size depending on there design there are variations of designs which most know, there size normally indicates the maximum load they can withstand,hold etc,  in regards to size on a scale ship it will depend on the scale of the craft that will tell you how big or small you have to make them so they look in proportion to your model ( clearly everyone knows that!) you wouldnt want to fit 1/24 bollards on a 1/45 tug.. they would be taller then a scale deckhand {-)

 Wasn't trying to steal your credits Toesupwa. I've got a whole file of ships bits and fittings for modeling reference, most of which I don't know where they come from. Credit for where credit is due.
