Anglian Sovereign Finished at last?
« on: March 28, 2012, 09:41:23 PM »

Here are a couple of photos of my latest project. A scratch built OSV at 1:76. This has taken over three years elapsed time with a couple of other minor projects undertaken during that time. The railings sent me round the twist and nearly caused the whole thing to be abandoned. I think I bit off rather more than I bargained for with this and will think long and hard before tackling such a complex scratch build again.

Thanks to Tugsov for providing a load of detail photos without which this would never have come to fruition.

Glad you didn't give up.
The sight of and appreciation for the model by fellow model boaters or passers-by at the pond should give you plentiful reward for the plight you have gone through with her build.

She looks to me to be of the common Ulstein design for AHTS vessels.

Could you do me a favour and post a few shots of her stern, especially of the underwater part with shaft/prop/nozzle arrangement and the breadth of the skeg?

The reason for my asking is that I reconstructed a lines plan of the Ulstein A102 from a lousy GA copy within a spec sheet, and I am still in doubt whether I have guessed the shape of the stern correctly.
I am particularly unsure about the breadth of the skeg because I haven't found any dry-dock photos.
I estimated a breadth of 1.6 m which I believe is to slim since the skeg should provide sufficient space for the stern thrusters.
To me it looks however, as if all Ulstein AHTS designs more or less have the same stern design.

Btw, these should resemble the hull lines of the BOURBON DOLPHIN which due to her tragic sinking in April 2007 after only half a year after her delivery from the builders should inadvertently have displayed the very part that interests me when she floated some two days keel up in the North Sea before she sank to the sea bottom in 1100 m where she now lies upright on her keel.
Unfortunately, all the photos that I have discovered so far in the Internet that depict this state are too small and of too poor quality to really be useful.

Lush bit of kit  :-)

They do have a rather nice look about them, how long is she?

All the best

Thanks for the kind comments guys, most encouraging.

Deadwood here are some photos of the aft end of the model I have also sent you a PM.

Some more photos (hopefully better definition) taken at the club water on Sunday. Unfortunately no on water shots as I had an embarrasing power failure due to dodgy soldering (mea culpa).

Hi dougal99,

You have done a brilliant job there  :-)) Your model really does look the part and brings back some happy memories for me!

Glad I could help!

Thanks for the compliments, and thanks again for you generous provision of the photos. They were invaluable for getting the details.

Lovely Doug - are you going to put an anchor on her?

No plans to Dave. In all the photos I have you can't see the anchor so I guess I'll leave it as it is.
