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?

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.

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! 😉 For example; Before

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

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.
Cheers, Doug
