This boat is a masterpiece of engineering and excecution.  It is builds like this that gives us all incentive to do more that we think possible..

Well done!

I took an I.Q. test once..........The results came back negative.

The thruster controle sat the transmitter Maersk Master
« Reply #16 on: April 09, 2010, 11:17:49 »
Hello.

The thruster control stick are selfmade

This system works only at computer transmitters, to programm the exact 360 degrees at the stick to exact 360 degrees of the azimuth.
Now is the position at the transmitter exact the position under the model.

What I earlier said, a good friend modified my system with new self programmed sofware and now it works endless.
this system is so perfect that he's now in contact with the modelling industry.

Please look at the photos.

About the question of the plexy, for the decks I used 4 mm, normaly to thick but I can now lift my model at the deck construction out of the water.
The model weight between 50 and 60 kg, (attepst how many batteries I sail)

To glue the pleyx I used normal 10 sec glue. (or locktide 904)
But for mee tho most positive is I can see directly what's happened underneed the deck.
The hatch in the sterndeck I only tape waterproof As it's nessesarry.

 :) :) :) :) :)

                 Model Tugs at their very BEST  a credit to your electro / engineering skills
      for keeping to the original propulsion system.
                 Did you form the stern roller out of sheet or turn from solid?

                   regards

hello ???

I don't now why you never sign you name but here my reply.

About the sternroller, that made of a plexy 10 mm thick.
But I will made it later of steel so I can real rust made.

About the propulsion It works like real.
But the most important the model sails like real.
At our latest IOS meeting :
http://www.osv-society.info/Offshore_2008.html
http://www.osv-society.info/Offshore_2008_II.html
One of the old capt. of the MM sail with the model and he was impressed about the same special sailing charackter,
Becouse of teh special propulsion system, the superstructure in the midle and the full builded hull in teh bow she sails over the bow, and is very stabil.

But the model sails al litle nervous, and by towing you need the azimuths to manouvre.
The model scale 1:50 sails much realistic than models scale 1:75 or higher.

But full balasted about 55/60 kg not so easy to handle to the water.
And also in the workshop I use a special model working bench.
I use a T model so the model is standing at the long part,
So I can walk and work around the model.

Great video, Leen. She is quite manoeverable with the system you have.

Hello.

I started building the model in 2000, so during the building I leurned new technics and new materials.
In de beginning used many polystyreen (ABS) and after that mory plexy.
At the moment ist more print plate and phosfor-brass.
The greatest advantage of phosfor-brass, is, its very thin 0.2 mm and good to solder.

So you can see at the photos it,s a very complex superstructure.
Also becouse the MM get a experimental cargo holt before the wheelhouse.
In practice it never get the fuction it thought to be.
Under the hatches it never used.
The Maersk Master got a cargorail arround the cargo hatch and now they use it more for light cargo.

















































Next time more about the superstructure in the right colours.

This just gets better; :) :) if my build is a 10th of the quality of this I will be more than happy.

Details superstructure Maersk Master scale 1/50.
« Reply #27 on: April 16, 2010, 19:43:57 »
Hello.

Thanks for al compliments.
what I earlier all told During building the model I learned new tecknicts and new materials.
So I remade some parts becouse I was not satidfaid about earlier made polystyreen parts.
Special the material phosfor-brass is a great material, very thin (0.2 mm) but even strong as 0.5 mm brass and 1.5 mm polystyreen.
Better to soldern as Brass.

Brass is perfect to made the piping and many flanges and valves.

And now after made other idees I got THE Idee to made the flanges and valves fast and with the 4/6/8 or more holes (0.4 or 0.5 mm)inside for the bolds.
Now it cost me not more than 40 sec to made a flans and 90 sec to made a valve
The inside diameter is minimum 1mm and the outside 3mm.
I made all the flanges and valves at the turning machine (lathe)

It's to simple to told it in words.
But the right photos to speak for herself I will made ltr.(sorry)

Here some detal photos.









This valve is about 3.5x5 mm.







Hundreds of mini bolds and other spare.
The bolds are made of hexagonal profile which tuned to 0.5 mm

Understanding the Dremel is fitted at the lathe and with the degree marking at the lathe chuck I can made the 4/6/8 or more holes in the valves and flanges

Now I use a proxxon machine, it's much accurate at the dremel.






To Made the piping I made two bending machines(?) So I can bend 4 and 8 mm with extreme radius.









To Made the ventilation grilles I use a special assemble profile.
So I can soldern the 0.2 mm phosfor - brass strips.









Here I found a photo of the superstructure before and after spraying.
To spray I use a combination of a airbrush 0.3 mm and a 0.8 full spraygun

FiFi and navigation mast Maersk Master scale 1/50.
« Reply #29 on: April 17, 2010, 19:40:25 »
Hello again.

The FiFi and Navigation mast are made from more than 400 pieces.
The most is made of Phosphor-brass.
In the navigation mast are situated 24 navigation lamps.
19 of them will work in the right combination.
Therefore I use normal volt micro lamps (1.8x4mm)

But the biggest problem are the wiring.
The thinest I can find was at that moment 0.3 mm.
But there was help from the vessel self.
The capt and the engineer demanteld a old radar.
In this radar where special spools with extreem thin wiring.
And it was double wired.

The diameter was 0.08 mm.
So I was a happy man, the combination of 12 volt microlamps and this extreme thin wiring worked perfect after testing.
I used the mast self as grounding.
At least al wiring (19 pc)comes together at the base of the mast and goes inside true a hole of 0.8 mm.

The FiFi is made of a combination of copper-brass and polystyrene.
Even as for the piping I made a special bending machine, to bend the 8 mm copper in a radius of 11mm.
To mount al parts together I use a combination of soldern and gluing (loctite 406)

The FiFi installation worked (of course) and can be control in 90 degrees.
(only turning) The control is complete out of sight build in.

Also the 3 radars are working.
They are turning at the right rounds pro minute.
Also here the gearing is build out of sight.



















At the middle of the navigation mast you can see the 19 different wiring.

















The FIFI instalation.



























The piping to the FiFi is optic made of masive PVC, underground the piping is out of sight build in.









A litle dusty the exhausts,
The MM get 3 main engines, 2 for the main Propeller and one only generator for the 2 electric azimuths and bowthrusters.

The main engines get also shaft genarators to feet the 4 FiFi Pumps.
Look at this film.
