Microscale Geared Container Ship
A microscale model of a small geared container ship.
About this creation
This model is my attempt to build a container ship at a scale of 5 ft./stud (1:190). Because a large container ship would be enormous at this scale (almost 7 ft. long), I decided instead to build a small "feeder" container ship, capable of transporting somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 TEU of cargo. Many of these smaller container ships are "geared," meaning that they are outfitted with their own cranes, so that they can service ports with limited infrastructure.







Here's a pic showing a Hamilton class USCG cutter, with its embarked MH-65 Dolphin, along with a land-based MH-60 Jayhawk, coming to the aid of a disabled container ship.

Quoting Doug Hughes Great build!
Thanks! As you will soon see, this container ship is actually part of a much larger build.

Quoting Henrik Jensen Beautiful ship! I like that you added some texture to the containers, It looks wonderfully realistic!
Thanks. I had feeling that without some texture, the containers just wouldn't look too good. It added a lot of parts to do it that way, and severely limited my choice of colors, but I think the end result is better.

Quoting BATOH rossi really nice, the details are basic but well cared for. excellent MOC.
Thanks. I tried to add details where I could to make it a little more interesting. That's why the containers aren't just completely flat boxes.

Quoting Seaman SPb Excellent detailing!
Thanks. A container ship might not be as filled with details as something like a warship, but I tried to focus on those parts of the ship where there were some interesting features, like the decks at the stern and the shaping of the bow.
