Edda flora


Last year I purchased kit of Edda Flora from German company Bauer modele. This kit is realy beautyfull, very well done.Size is great too. This will be fuly funktional model. I was planning to build this mdel slowly, on side of my next projects. But current situation changed everything.
In this kit is epoxy fiberglass hull and two decks, a lot of laser cuted parts from ABS plastic and a lot of photo etched pasts.

What's the square hole in the bottom of the hull for?
Is it a moon pool?

At almost 50", this will be a massive model. Should be quite a satisfying project.

Yes, this square hole on the bottom of the hull is moon pool. Or will be ;-) Yes, this ship is big. Hull is 126 cm long, or 49,5 in. inside is a lot of space. I am little bit afraid about space over Voith Schneider drives, because I am planning to make read deck different way, as is on drawings, there dis whole rear deck removable. Around deck is some 26 holes..... and I do not planning to have water inside of hull. Today, bow thrusters was installed

Incredible work. I have not animated anything on any of my builds. I was tempted to say “ You need to work on your building skills” but I was afraid you wouldn’t understand my weak joke. Your work is simply outstanding. From what I can see in the background you have built a lot of museum quality boats. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks ;-) I just have a fun on this ship. Kit is realy great. For now, it was just regular model building job. A lot of fun just starting. I want to make some changes on opening of rear deck, it will be on program today. And after this are coming details. This Corona stay home time is good for modelers ;-) . And I was planing to have this ship on the work bench for long tine ;-) But do not worry, I am working hard on my building skills every day Untill I will finish this ship, I will be a master ;-)
