    Hi Ron
    No, the yellow cranes in the second pic are on the original version, as the guy bought it. He then decided to convert it to a container feeder ship as shown in the first pic. They don't need on board cranes.

    Your container idea shows two yellow cranes. I have no life boats, railings, forecastle deck hardware, anchors, masts, just what you see here.

    Tag Tica,
    More like 1/96 or 1/100 according to the build reports I've seen here in Germany. Re lack of cranes; you could always build her as a Container Feeder ship! ๐Ÿ˜‰ For example; Before

    to After

    I have a nearly completed Neptun, but is also missing the cranes.

    I have just done the hatches with tie downs.

    As I recall the scale is approx 1:87 (H0) but please check if that is correct.

    No plans. No fittings. Just the parts I have been able to glue-up here.

    The containers and toys were added to see if they might be used for freight. These General Freighters are used for multiple cargos but I have no Cranes.

    Thinking of just adding hatches with tie downs.

    Any suggestions? Approximately what scale?
