I have started to plan another project, a famous ship from Norway that was used to rescue sailors. The rescue company exists today as well. this becomes a model at scale 1:15, so that means it will be about 1 meter long. as usual I have started with the anchor. waiting for the drawings from the Norwegian Maritime Museum. I get this in a week

Many thanks, a very interesting link. Is the price in Norwegian krones ?
In Norway usually all prices are shown in Norwegian Kroner .
The currency exchange rate to Euro is appr. for easier calculation: 0,1 Euro = 1,0 NOK

BTW: They have a very interesting web-page


and they have also a Digital Museum in the meantime

Hello.

Today the drawings were waiting for me:

so now it was just to put the team sketch on the table and start planning the topic sizes for the first parts.

The drawings are on a scale of 1:20
the model will scale at 1:15

This means that I had to figure out how many% increase the drawings had to be enlarged in.

The original has a length of 13950mm and divided by 15 so it becomes 930mm length from stern to stern.

Found that if I enlarged the drawings 135% then it would be the right measure.

Will be getting steel for the keel monday. It is divided into 3 parts.

I have to get hold of 3 topics on respectively:

45 x 40 x 324 mm
40 x 40 x 275 mm
40 x 35 x 186 mm
