"Smit Vision"?
« on: February 08, 2015, 07:25:40 PM »

Hello!
I've started a new build during this autumn, it's the Tian Jie "Salvirile/Salvision". I made some changes to the superstructure today so I'm thinking about making her a Smit vessel in par with my Smit London. They are both 1:75. Reason for the change of design is that I thought her aft bridge was a bit to big, and as I'm not going to work there I simply made it smaller! Perhaps I gained some courage from the beverage on site. So far it's been a joy to build, everything fits so good together.

All the best!

Hello!
Searched the web for reference pictures and found out that the two original vessels got at least five new sisterships during 2013. Teras Ariel and sisters of Teras Offshore. http://www.terasoffshore.com/?p=section&sub=article&articlegrppk=81&articlepk=129
But as I've altered mine already I'm free to make whatever of it. :P
I mentioned Smit, could be Maersk also, Maersk Vision/Virile? %)
Got some more done this week, I'll take a Picture.
All the best!

Thanks to you both!
As for motors, I'm not sure yet. There is a premounted motor tray that will allow for 400 motors. I bought a MFA 385 for my Kong Olav that I really like so perhaps a pair of those? For the moment I'm about to buy another kit so no funds to buy running gear at the moment. Bad priorities I now, but hey it's a new day tomorrow.
All the best!

Hello!
Finally some progress on this one. Got some paint on her. Also made some hatches for access to rudder and motors. Things will speed up a bit now I hope..
More pictures to follow.

..and some colour for the superstructure. Neither the hull nor the superstructure colours are spot on but as you'll probably guess she will be Maersk Vision instead.

Painted some fittings today. Some will stay this colour but others will be repainted.
All the best!
