Large anchor
« on: May 03, 2010, 06:54:50 »
I am after a large anchor for my tug. its the 1/50 aziz tug model slipway but the rear deck is bear.

Iam after a large oil rig anchor to give it something i tried a shipping container but it was not right.

I have spent a day looking but with not much joy, so if any one has an idea off what they look like could you please send or post some pics. No one seems to make anything like this

Have you tried making anchor buoys etc., to give the appearance of a 'working deck' ? I would think they would be simple enough to construct to scale.    ;)   :D :D

One manufacturer of offshore rig anchors is Vryhoff. They provide the Stevpris line of anchors. Here is one example:

They have enough material including a complete cataloque on their website to build an anchor.

Is this the anchor you're after?
 Look up Flipper Delta on this forum in the search engine.This one was hand made by a member. He did an awesome job, and built it to 1:75. As for the other clutter, the bouy was originally a large dowel, and the cargo boxes...simply blocks of wood. Still working on finding the correct size chains, as the ones pictured were just bits of junk I picked up through the years, and are obviously not to scale.

I find that this site has a good selection of anchors,chains etc. From my dealings with them they have always 'come-up-to-the mark' and delivery was within days. (Bearing in mind that I live in Spain and the mails service here is not know for it's efficiency.)

Hope this will be of help.

I will be making a large anchor for the deck of the Mustang.  One can buy large anchors, but nothing that matches the type you are looking for, not that I have found.  It can be made from brass or plastic card.
