A cool? -24 degrees today, may make to my local pub, but not much more today ( Canadian on special ) working on cargo booms for the freighter, short on block and tackle for the 8 of them. LHS out of stock.
Not much layout work, trying to complete 1/2 dozen assorted pieces of rolling stock, in various stages of
construction at the moment 1 boxcar ( Peru), 3 tank cars
( from Peru, Brazil and Burma)and my Rotary Snow Plow from ( Canada).

Hi Tony,
Standard highway clearance for road vehicles in Australia is 5 metres. So for a standard semi-trailer the back door opening needs to be at least 5 metre "plus a bit" (estimate 1 metre) for when the loading ramp steps down from the wharf to the ship deck. From your photo I'd suggest 500mm to 1 metre deep supporting deck beams, given how far the light fittings are up between these beams. Adding all this together should give you about 7 to 8 metres between the deck surfaces inside the hull.

I'm not sure how close this goes to what you have worked out,

Hi John:wave:, here is a pic of the ship I am modelling, with the stern doors on the wharf on an angle.

You will clearly see the top floor framing you are talking about, my first drawing attempt was measurements between the decks but no framing given, I have to change the plan  to the right height, only going by a PDF side plan and lots of pics.
The main deck to the upper deck I worked the height out to be double the height of a Semi trailer, going to be an interesting build, one day lash out and buy the ship plans from another bloke said he had of my ship.
This ship is going through an lengthening program cutting the hull mid ship and adding a 30 meter section, she is is huge measuring 2.150 meters in 1/87 scale.
Warming up down there.
Tony.

H John, here is a pic of the side drawing plans of the ship to 1/87 scale, have to build her in four sections.

Going back to the last post the stern door rams how big do think they are in thickness.

Hi Ken, a warm 30 degrees today, was actually hotter in Brisbane today, noticed the difference when we arrived home, dropped into my later Uncles house and cousins were there tiding up to put the house on the market, saw his house for the last time.

Went there to pick up the last of my Uncles train stuff, on a high, 7 full lengths of Peco flexi track 15 peco points and a long diamond crossing come in handy for my layout plus a lot of building kits.

would love to see some pics of the progress of your freighter., some times you have to come down to scratch building the parks, I will have to do the same because of her scale size.

Look forward to see some pics, good to keep busy with projects, how much is the glasses of beer in Canada, for a large glass $15 here, glad I don"t go to the pub much.

Warmed up to balmy -23 today, may be +1 by Saturday?.
A Pint of beer is either $5:75 or $6:75, depending whether it is Happy Hour price or not. I can understand not going to a pub, to often at that price.

Will need to find a place so I can get my freighter off the shelf and take a photo or two, as I've mentioned it weigh's a fair bit, just over 25 Pound's with batteries
installed, not something I want to pack around to much.

Morning Ken, we had a low 30 degrees today and storms rolled in the afternoon, rain all week, I hope to con my wife into letting me buy a full sheet of 12mm ply and have it cut to different sizes. That is half the price to our glasses of beer.
I found out that the off cut I was using  for the new front corner module top wasn't square at one end, the only way to fix it is a new piece, my local Hard Wear store has a special saw for cutting ply sheets.
Be looking forward to seeing your freighter when you get a chance to get the ship off the shelf, would have to be a good shelf to hold the weight of the ship.
Bought a new iPhone 8 Plus Monday, has a double camera lens, the video side is 4k  we feed  wild parrots will test the video tomorrow.

Hi Tony,
The cylinders look about twice the diameter of the rams. From what I've seen of hydraulics in the steel industry I'd suggest probably 4" to 6" maximum diameter for the rams and about 12" diameter for the cylinders.

In scale dimensions - say 1 to 1.5 mm diameter styrene round for the rams and perhaps 2 to 3 mm diameter styrene round for the rams. These dimensions are approximate and near enough should be good enough.

That should give you something that should look the part.

Morning John, many thanks for those measurements on the rams will be able to work the ends of the stern of the ship now, once I start building will start a new post, I like to being in other hobbies to the layout as a side line,like the Boeing 737 fuselages for a train load.

QLD state election on , I am busy helping the MP in our seat, easy job going out and about this afternoon driving her ute and trailer around her Electorate with a friend.

Not much work on the layout, should do a  very nice 26 degrees today and all week with rain,I hope to buy a 12 mm sheet of ply get it cut to size at Bunning tomorrow.

HI all slowly getting back into the layout construction, I am working on the northern end front corner module,, a new module,  had some trouble with the module sides were from the other module and had a big gap easy fix. Have to do the same the other end as I discovered the ply end wasn't cut square out by 1.5 mm's easy fix again , that can wait till next week  Saturday is Queensland voting day I be at the polling booth all day 13 hours and party afterwards.

I may never be able to complete my layout dream now, so completing what I have, only be half the station complex and have cut the layout back 8 feet shifted the spiral to beside the car port, we may have to down size in the near future, so long as I get a couple of years running trains I be happy .

It is amazing what you can do with wood if you make a mistake, it was with the end of the module not square, this is how I was able to have larger curves come together like a jigsaw puzzle.

Once I have finished this module will work on the spiral, all the spiral decking is already cut and I have a special jig for the level to mark the legs and cut them every 42 mm'squarter inch a foot, spiral length is 24 feet to 6 inches in height to the bridge.
