Blueprints & plans
About me

Blueprints & plans.

All models have been documented when it comes to the electrical and the electronics etc., and that's about it. The rest was done by simple sketches and trials.
No plans was available of the Emma Maersk what so ever, so I had to collect as many images as possible, measure objects with known measurements on each image, and then calculate a scale for that one image.. observe perspective, then find measurements for other objects.. and cross reference it with other images and so on. It takes a while, but you'll get there.
The rest is "artistic freedom" :-)

Plans can be bought online of the (once top-secret) submarine, giving the most important details such as hull shape etc., and using images for the rest, a quite impressive collection of details can be put together.

The crane, however, is another matter. No kits are available, nor are any collections of plans. Surfing a lot of forums and other sources of technical solutions as inspiration does reveal some ideas. But still, the majority has to be made up along the way. I use Autodesk Inventor in many cases, to create the 2D outline of parts, so I can cut them on the CNC, but the rest of the parts are made af "one off's".
