My god yes please Ali!!!!!

As many outside deck and detail pictures as you can feasably manage without being locked up for 'terrorism activities' would be most useful.......

All photos are useful  :-)) :-)) :-))

If you manage to get on the bridge, some good clear shots of the GA plans (usually found on the back wall behind glass) would be the bees knees - as well as bridge interior shots. For the GA plans, one photograph of each deck layout would be clearer than trying to photograph the whole drawing at once........and obviously at as high a resolution as possible...

I feel that I am asking too much here Ali....sorry mate....

I wish I could do this exercise for all the boats I have planned............

Is this a special cruise then? Or something you are celebrating yourself? 25 years on one run is a major achievement for the ferry business. Pride of Dover managed to rack up 23 years (87 - 10)and Pride of Calais has managed 24 so far...........

Ok Carl. I'll see what I can do. I would love to get on the bridge but somehow I doubt it. However I will be able to get plenty of shots of Norland/Norstar and also Norwave/Norwind.                                                                                                                                            As for the the anniversary May 8th will 25 years since Norsea's maiden voyage. I'm taking the wife and I'm having some his and her's sweatshirts made up.                                                                                                                                                                 I'm going to stop there, I've said too much already. I'm starting to sound like a complete anorak, but maybe you already knew that.

Not at all mate - why not drop the skipper a line before you go c/o the Company Office in Hull letting him know why you are travelling and your enthusiasm for North Sea Ferries..........he may be accommodating. I've known it happen...........

It may be worth a shot. I'm not even that bothered about going to Bruges as I've been there many times before. If I could stay on the the ship all day and have a nosey about it really be something. But that would mean I wouldn't get them photos.

Hope they have spruced her up since last year. Watch you dont miss the Russian submarine in the Zeebrugge dock area, if you like that kind of thing.

Hi Duncan. She did look pretty good after her visit to South Shields last February but the cruel north sea never lets up on trying to paint and metal work.
I assume that photo was taken from the Rossife ferry. I'll have to do that trip one day.

PS. Sorry Carl for High jacking your thread.

Correct Ali but we went because the route was ending, nothing from Rosyth now sadly.  We were on the Scottish Viking which opens up a train of thought ,sorry, thinking about recent rail ferry chat ! I hope some of the emerging ferry models will have couple that have exposed deck space for vehicles, or trains for the older ones. Copyright photograph acknowledged.

It's on a dutch forum. I think it's 1:50 scale, at more than three metres long it must be.

YIKES!!!!

3.45m long, 0.5m wide and weighs over 130kg when on the water!!!!

A very beautiful model - and will be even more incredible when she is finished.  Any bigger and the owner will not need a conventional ferry to get to the UK!!!!!!!!!!

From my, admittedly very poor understanding of Dutch, one of the guys on that site is building the Norqueen? :o :o

Have bookmarked it for closer study 8) 8) 8)

Thanks for that Ali  :-)) I think I may register there and post up some news about our little ventures with the r/c and waterline ferries.....you never know!!
