Cool idea and make, but bad theme, I think.
I don't know how the market for that one will be in GB. Probably there are more honks in germany who'll love that ....
But it's incredible what one can dio with a 'bit' of resine.
Best, Joerg

There is complicated ..... and there is COMPLICATED!






Maersk OSV Modelling - https://www.facebook.com/Maersk.Osv.Modelling/posts/pfbid0HW8TmV9C52cbu8yFdzAzwMWxnnr8S5no9WwwweVPhbLhDgaQAsEv5xHSHYvHP6Pzl

The electronics of the Maersk Topper will be completely replaced. The current Graupner MC 22 (jeti 2.4ghz) with 2 multiswitch modules will be replaced.
I am experiencing too much interference with the multiswitch modules. I will continue with the FrSky Taranis 9XE, after positive experience from a number of other ship model builders
 I will not only replace the RC control but also all circuits controlled by the multiswitches.
Because the Taranis 9XE has 32 servo channels with a 2nd transmitter module, I can control many functions directly with a servo channel (esc) instead of with the multiswitch.
This creates many more mix and combination possibilities, which will later be very useful during Anchor Handling (combination maneuvering model, control winches, Towing pins and sjarkjaws).
It will be a mega job and the design of how everything will look like is still in the early stages.

It would be like sailing across one of those old sea maps with actual depictions of what they decorated them with - just missing the sea monster

From: Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg

 
The steam engine was one of the main pillars of the Industrial Revolution and changed the world of shipping forever. As such, this invention is one of the principal subjects in our section dedicated to the history of shipbuilding on deck 3 of the museum. The stars of this section are without any doubt the fully functional engine models of Karl-Friedrich Pohlmann. They include a reproduction of the engines of the RMS Titanic, the SS Deutshcland (1900), but also this masterpiece that shows how steam power opened fully new possibilities in shipping.

You are looking to the engine system of an ocean-going and salvage tug, around 1900, in a scale of 1:25. This type of vessel needs an imense amount of power to carry out their duties - and really needs to be able to operate independently from the wind. So, for such a comparably small vessel, an ocean-going tug will always need a comparably large, mighty and complex engine. This is still the fact for modern offshore operating tugs. The model of the stern of this tug shows two three-cylinder expansion engines with main condensers, and air and water feed pumps, as the heart of the propulsion system. Furthermore, two twin expansion engines with two cooling water centrifugal pumps for the main condensers and two single-cylinder expansion engines with two electric power generators as auxiliary engines. The model is completed by a two-cylinder steering gear with alternating steam valve, to control the rudder of the tug.

This parts are known as compound steam engines. In them, he steam is fed in progressively larger and lower pressure cylinders while it loses heat. This way, the engine uses more power from the steam. This engines are usually closed systems, where the steam is cooled into water to be reheated and reused as steam. This is specially relevant for sea operation, because the use of salt water would damage the boiler. The compound steam engine was invented in the early 1780s, but it took approximately a century to develop functioning maritime applications for the multiple compound steam engine. This system will be the highest propulsion technology for ships until the steam turbine and the Diesel engine were developed.
