        Mind?, most certainly not! Fantastic close up's of her. I must say that the poor old girl looks like she could do with a thorough blasting from a UHP set, and a nice new coat of paint. But i doubt neither time nor money will give her such luxury.

          Or, overall plate thickness...

          And, the spooky things is that I was stalked on the pier as well: that's me in my grey car (lazy to even get out of the car)...

            I did not want to mention about plate thickness But i know what you mean, have found a few holes that way in my time!

            Nice to see you were stalked, caught in the act so to speak. That webcam angle really shows the difference in size of the old and new ships, they certainly went 'bigger' with the new builds!

              If you wish . . . if you don’t mind . . . there should be a special smiley for our Captain in coy, oh so sweetly embarrassed, modest mode!!!!!!
              I think you are as delighted with these images as we are to see them . And that perfect wall-poster compilation of post #425 !!!!!!

                That old hull has certainly seen some action. If I ever write a book on "Hull Thinning" I will certainly ask to use these photos to illustrate what happens and the remedial action that can be taken.

                I particularly like the patches below the scuttles.

                    Maybe I have done something illegal here. But I have multiquoted some posts from another thread. And mixed it into this.

                    Please note the RED PEN MARKING

                    The last thing I would like to point out are those red pen marks, which shows areas that were so "secret" that they were not to be published (at the time when it was taken). Fjellanger Wideroe has a large collection of aerial photographs from many places in Norway, and all areas which were deemed to secret to be published were marked with a red pen by someone.

                    I just wanted to know if the areas in Trondheim, marked with a red pen, are still TOP SECRET. In that case..................

                      I guess the secrecy is no longer. The image with the red markings, and many others at the same source, were once classified as secret.

                      But they were also taken just after the war, when there were no ship-nerds like us taking thousands upon thousands of pictures of almost everything we see around us.

                      Back then, few had cameras, and in particular, access to aerial shots.

                          A very warm welcome on board our warm and friendly forum Harald. We hope and trust you will find a lot of great new friends here.

                          I wouldn't worry about NX plate thickness at all: she is under good supervision of very competent crew which has a great love and affection for her well being and safety: the same affection and love many of our members have for this ship.

                            Thank you for the very warm welcome!

                            Yes, I know that the MS "NORDSTJERNEN" is being well looked after! Visited her last time in October 2009 (in Trondheim).

                              Nordstjernen can be seen on "Påskenøttene"
