X-Bow
« on: September 30, 2013, 11:11:54 AM »

Hey!


Me and some friends are going to building a model of the x-bow ship. Do some of you have some drawings of these vessels? Do any of you have a model of this ship in a program like Freeship or Delftship?


Please help!
Thanks  %% :-))

Try this link by member Boatmadman. I spent an enjoyable afternoon on saturday reading it....

http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,17422.0.html

Ian used Delftship to design the hull seeing as there appears to be NO plans available for this hull shape. There is some input from German members and quite a few of them have built this type of ship, you could search German forums for more info.

Hope this helps.

Brian.

Tried 'googling' Ramstein X-Bow, got weird results. But, an Internet search ought to work.

Rammstein is either an old cold war airbase or more up to date a german heavy rock band. ULSTEIN is the shipbuilder

I thought Ian was working with someone to create a plug and mold for Xbow ships.

You are right Umi, I was.


There was a plug and a run of fg hulls produced, but for various reasons the project didn't progress as anticipated.


The company I was working with acquired  a different set of plans for a range of x bow type hulls, and decided, for their reasons to go with those rather than continue with our agreement.


As a result, the arrangement we had is no longer in place.


Please don't ask me who the company is, I no longer have any involvement with them and don't anticipate to.

Shame on them. I can fully understand your resentments, Ian.

To the requester,
a lines plan of an X-Bow can indeed be drawn with the mentioned hull lofting programs, a little practice provided.
A good aid for doing this might be a look into the X-Bow Patent Specifications which contains a few useful drawings.
