I just watched in awe. . .this is what we all would love to achieve.
I have admired the big anchor handlers for years on "YouTube" and
the model shown here is doing exactly as the real guys and for us -
even much more.

I doubt I will ever be able to duplicate this man's work, but his craftmanship
inspires my determination to succeed at what I do want to design for my
tugboat world.

Thank you for sharing such quality of anchor handling spirit, Mike.

These models are built to 1/50th scale so virtually the same as the AZIZ.

The big difference with these guys are that everything they build is modelled on a computer. All the superstructure is CAD designed just like the real thing and then it is CNC laser cut from sheet brass and copper. Only then are the parts soldered together.

It is craftsmanship at its best, but when you can draw a straight line on a computer and have it cut by a machine, all your joints are going to be perfect, there is no way that the precision replicated by the machine could be done by hand.
