    Hello, the frames are lasercut by the dutch company Snijlab.nl, it was a great idea to get simple perfect frames and so on also a perfect total frame. After a building stop of nearly 9 months we we restart building in november. We will build in the bow and stern thrusters and we hope to made the first test sail in may 2020. But what offshore are you building in scale 1/25?

    πŸ“ Offshore Crane Vessel Bokalift 1, Build by Dutch sailing group Mail-line
    12 months ago by maersk-topper ( Leading Seaman)
    Flag
    View All
    Hello
    As a member of the Dutch modelling group Mailline I will start this topic on the construction of the offshore crane ship BokaLift 1 in the coming period (total construction time probably 3/4 years) through many photos on this forum.

    In 2005, Mailline members purchased a model of a tanker from about 385 cm long as a large towing object.
    However, there was a desire to make the tanker a more functional model and so the tanker was converted in 1 winter time into an offshore crane vessel called MailLine Lifter.
    The crane was fully functional including a special ballast-, and anchor system.

    However, in September 2015 the trailer, including the model of the Mailine Lifter, was stolen from the storage location, and so far never found again.
    The lack of the Mail-Line Lifter caused a great demotivation among the members and it took until 2018 before we had the motivation again to start a new group project.

    In 2017, the Dutch shipping company Boskalis converted their semisubmersible heavy transport vessel Finesse into a large offshore crane vessel named BokaLift 1
    A 3000-tonne Huisman crane was placed on the deck during the conversion.

    Partly because many members already had tugs from shipping company Smit, the decision was made to build a model of the BokaLift 1. (scale 1/50)

    During a construction meeting in spring 2018, the members decided to build the model in modules so that everyone can make their own part at home in their own workshop.
    The dimensions of the model are 438x86 cm with a maximum height of 270 cm
    The water displacement will be approximately 580 kg

    The construction of the model is therefore divided into the following parts:
    Hull
    Propulsion
    Crane / Boom
    Crane technology
    Stabilization system
    Accommodation
    Helideck / construction
    Boomrest
    Deckwinches
    Rescue parts (liferaft / boats)
    Deck detail
    Electro / electronics / RC
    Anchor system

    I started building the hull in September 2018 and the hull is built in 2 parts.

    The hull was drawn with a 3D drawing program (Delfship) and then in SolidWorks futher adjusted to a body plan to create the largest possible usable space for all components.

    The frames are laser cut from 10mm poplar plywood
    Then glued together and covered with 3 mm thick pinewood slats in different widths

    I hope the many pictures say more than my limited English writing

    The base plate has been enlarged in the new model.
    The vertical base has been enlarged so that the guided rollers can also be mounted on this plate.

    πŸ“ Free fall anchor winch, Maersk Topper, scale 1/50

    My home made Free Fall anchor winch for my model Maersk Topper. The original design is made by http://www.ankerwinde.eu/de/ But My anchor and chain is to heavy so I adjusted the chain roller and extra guide rollers. First I made a test model to test of all modifications are really working.
