Contenairship Maersk CONAKRY
« on: May 19, 2023, 08:06:56 am »

Hello, I have been a French model maker for 33 years. I've started to build the Conakry contenairship at the beginning of the year. I am having trouble finding plans from the shipyard, so I've decided to draw my own plans of the ship. I am currently collecting every pictures that I can find on the internet in order to redraw the plans.
My model is built to scale 1/100. It is 249cm long and 37,4cm wide.

The curve of the hull did not please me.It didn't conform to the photos.I recut the front. I redrew the plans and resumed the shape of the hull.

To make the exact shape of the bow, I first make a guide then Cut and glue all of my slats resting on the guide. Then grinding and sanding.
