AHTS Maersk Master, scale 1/50

Hello.

My name is Leen Boers and lives in teh Netherlands.
I will make a photo serie of making the model of the Maersk Master scale 1/50
I started building the MM in 2000.
The model is 164 cm long and the total weight at the moment is in the water 60 kg.
At the moment I am finishing the model and start building a model of the Maersk Trader.

I will upload photos from the start building the wooden plug.
(excuse for my bad english writing)

First some photos about the situation now.
The photos are made summer 2009.











The wooden hull,

that case is a work of art too! Looks like the boat sits in there well enough to drop it from a building. Yes definitely yes, send more pics (and videos too) of the boat in action.

Your english is just fine as we can see you have spoken the language of modelers with pictures, where words are not always needed!!
