Canmar Kigoriak
« on: March 20, 2012, 18:48:52 »
The first drawing shows the Canmar Kigoriak as she looked when launched and this is how I am going to model her. Significant changes over the years include moving the exhaust stacks from the back of the funnel casing to the top and an extension to the fo'c'sle deck to enclose the towing winch and make room for a pair of ugly deck houses.

Built: 1979 by Saint John Shipbuilding, New Brunswick, Canada for Dome Petroleum of Calgary.
Length: 91m (300ft)
Beam: 17.25m (56ft)
17000 h.p.


As Built




How she looks today as Talagy

Here is an example of what two thirds of the frame sections look like for the Kigoriak. No I'm not simplifying them for model construction: this is how the 300ft prototype was built. Things get a little more complicated in the bow area but I'll explain that in another post.

The pair of deck houses are not so uggly (not more than the ship herself) and then it's simpliest for model if the winch is enclosed

 

I like the power shown from this picture

Thanks for your input Bourricot,

I don't like the way the deck-houses look like they were tacked on as an afterthought (which they were!) and as you say she can use all the help she can get in the looks department. Also if I don't get to build the main winch there won't be much else to do! :)

Hello brian.

Here you can see the model is all ready made in the Netherlands, scale 1/50.
The photos are made at the Off IOS meeting in Gutersloh Germany.
Most of the models in the nearby are also scale 1/50.

Hi Leen,

Thanks for the photos. I have seen a few other pics of this model around the web but at a greater distance. Your photos confirm to me that Kigoriak looks good in model form. Note that the model shows her as "Kigoria" (no ending K) which is her first name after leaving Canadian service. Kigoriak means "northern Lights" in the Inuit language.

I'll do a post on the bow section soon. It looks complicated but isn't to bad in reality. Like the rest of the hull the bow has almost no compound curves.

Hello

Such nice pictures of off shore supplies !  1/50 is a great scale for this kind of ships even if many of the IOS member prefer the 1/75.

Are you owner of one of this model M. Trader ?  The Kigoria is not in the IOS list ?  http://www.osv-society.info/our_fleet_and_list_of_projects.html

Two interresting pictures from different angles with the bow (only rounded part of this ship  ;) and the waterfall to "lubricate" the ice

Hello Bourricot.

The model isn't mine, but a friend of my owned it.
Some months ago he sold it to ?????

The model isn't high detailed but at distance between other scale 1/50 models it looking good.

In the IOS the most models are made 1/75 and 1/50.
All Dutch IOS members are building scale 1/50

But as you see at the photos the Kigoria scale 1/50 will weight 60kg.

Succes with building your model.

Gr leen

Excellent photos Bourricot. I hadn't seen those ones before.

The bow shot shows fairly well some of the then experimental features of the Kigoriak. The bow type is referred to as a "spoon bow" and is wider and flatter with a shallower approach angel then more traditional designs. In theory this design uses less power to break a given thickness of ice. In addition the bow has "ice reamers". The reamers allow the ship to break a channel that is about 2m wider then the breadth of the main hull. This extra room in the channel makes the Kigoriak very maneuverable in the ice. The water lubrication is intended to reduce friction when riding up on the ice.

Built 10 years after Kigoriak the Swedish icebreaker Oden (1988) takes these concepts to the extreme.

Hello

I didn't know about model drawing for the Kigoria (K) and I was surprised to see her in this catalog on page 117



http://www.modelbouwers.nl/pdf/Catalogus%20schepen.pdf

A lot of other interresting things in this catalog - take care sometime for the same boat there is different scale and details drawing.

Hi Bourricot,

Thanks for the link. That is an interesting catalog. I don't know if I have seen these particular drawings. There are a couple
of different plans available for the Kigoiak/Kigoria/Talagy  but they all seem to have been drawn from diagrams that
appear in technical journals. The people doing the drafting don't have a complete lines plan and assume that the Kigoiak's
hull is built like most other OSVs which it most definitely is not. Fortunately I acquired a lines plan from the
Saint John Shipyards not long after Kigoriak was launched.
