Mearsk Alabama ( RC Boat )
« on: March 08, 2011, 17:31:13 »

Hi guys,

Last week i bought this cargo ship. its my first Rc boat and its almost complete. So there is a engine in it and other stuff. Must do a few things on it before she go in the water. I will make photo's of it and other boats to! There are always a lot of tugg boats.  8)

Why Mearsk Alabama? Because its the only Mearsk ship i could find with cranes in the middle  :thumbs: Orginal name is Graupner Neptun.  Some pic's,



I know Mearsk is wrong spelled lol  :thumbs:





Lots of dust on the boat ( all cleaned )  ;D





I try to change the K and S with out damage it and now,








Some cables on the cranes,











Bought some containers today,









So u guys see the hatches are to small..  :( Must make new ones that the container better fit so they dont fall off in the water haha  :doh:

Hope u like it...


Post more soon  :captain:

That's the Neptun, made by Graupner. It's a very nice boat, i also had one. I also had a bowthruster in mine  :thumbs: It's not very hard to build a bowthruster in it, but you will need to re-paint the hull and you need a transmitter with more then 2 channels.



The real Maersk Alabama was highjacked by pirates in 2009 off the Somalie coast. The pirates held the Master hostage in the lifeboat.

How strange! I have the same model on the garret, waiting for some time to assemble it, and - believe it or not - I've also plans to re-construct the ship, but in the opposite way! With a forward located decks house and some major changes to become a RoRo vessel. :2thumbs:
You gave me a new inspiration. ;D

Very nice model,

the Neptun was also one of my very first models :-) I did build her the way with the Structure mid-ship. She is not only a nice looking one, she is also seaworthy (right word for a ship going through heavy seas without problems?) :2thumbs: I went around the whole Island of Fehmarn with her (on her own keel!)  :captain:

if you´d like to have a look on some other vessels, there is a link to a video on youtube I made.. in the end there are also some nice cargo vessels:

And by the way,.. the hovercrafts, the Seabex One and the OilRigSupplyship Aziz (the one carrying the camera) are my buildings (on wich I´m quite proud of  :angel: )

Keep up the bulding and enjoy the sailing, it´s really a nice one!

How will you call it? The "Maersk Neptune"?  Would love to see a pic of her going through the water... she has such a great design

Keep it on...

Ah.. wait.. for the containerdeck...   why not using a long deck all over the two openings, where you could put the container all the way from bow to bridge ( including the cranes)
