    I don't feel like making a new thread for everything, and since the ship in the link is a model ship...., I post it here.
    (But of course, when the model is 30 feet long and weighs over 300 kg it might be a bit hard to find place on a bookshelf)

    In the link is a model of the german kriegsmarine ship "Admiral Graf Spee", and as you can read, it has a 15 HP outboard engine under the rear gun turret, can carry two people and make 15 miles pr. hour

        Here is a link to a model of the S.S Albatros, ex Dawn Princess, Sitmar Fairwind, Fairwind, and Sylvania.

        Nice little model. This was one of the ships that recently featured in the 'Cruise Ships on Google Earth' Thread. Here.

          The recent video in the tugboat thread somehow lead me to some interesting model videos.



          How about an RC floating drydock.

              in the hague holland there is a minatureland called madurodam.
              a minatureland with most of the icons of holland
              with city`s ,industrail aria, railroads, waterway`s,airport and port.
              ill post here the recogniseble ships
              "rotterdam"







              strange colors???
              yes,we are dutch,we want money for advertising.
              so the make the rotterdam as an icon of holland ,but HAL had to pay for the right colors and maintenance,no pay, no pure ROTTERDAM

              "stena discovery"





              as you can see ,stena pay`s

              "koningin beatrix"



              the vessel is now sailing as the "stena baltica"

              in the front a tug what should be the "zwarte zee" but smit, see "rotterdam"

              the bigger ships don`t sail the are a static model that stand on briks,the smaller ships sails through madurodam incl working bridges and locks
              (in there own part of the waterway and port)
              best regards Thijs

                How cool.... Rotterdam looks great in blue hull!

                I have only heard about this park but always wanted to go and see it - now, I want to see it even more.

                    As I mentioned a while back, I built the Smit Rotterdam and the Smit London ocean tugboats whilst I was a geeky teenager a long time back.

                    I still have my plastic model work on display in a small room with my stepfathers....

                      i had a smit rotterdam buyd that was already built,but not so nice,years ago for renovation, that was the billing boats set of 90cm long,but sold her a vieuw months later with profit

                      in the club where you can sail with other members there was one man who maded a model of i believe 1.60 meter and 25 kilo.

                      on the internet i saw a image of the londen that was 2 meters long

                      i had scan old images of the boats i have stil now,but havend seen water in the last 18/19 years

                        How large are your Smit models? Judging by the carpet they are small, making the detail work even more impressive.

                          The model is probably about ...uhmm... I would say 25-30 cm long. It's an old plastic model, probably about 25 years old already, if not more.

                            Madourodam is a great park! I was there in march last year and we had a great time. And then Rotterdam had her right colors

                              I really really want to go there and see that park as well: I remember hearing about it so many years ago, and instantly I wanted to visit.

                              Some day... I have a whole list of places and things I want to see.

                                Some may remember that I asked if there are any model builder which would like to finish three of my HRG ships for me... http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...4&postcount=18

                                In an e-mail I received from an acquaintance which lives in southern Norway, I have also learned that a very famous model ship builder is now packing up it's factory and moving it to Vietnam.

                                http://www.ta.no/nyheter/article4819895.ece

                                I believe I have seen models from this maker somewhere. I may go out on a limb here, but I wouldn't be surprised if they have made a model of the Norway many years ago.
