    As I stated elsewhere, the VANGUARD project will be given "wings"!

    The monstrous heavy lift ship is scheduled to come out of her birthplace, Hyundai Heavy Industries, and has already a big load to carry out - the larger TAHITI Spar.

    But if you think the DOCKWISE VANGUARD is the only thing, then forget it; the TAHITI Spar, and some more heavy loads can be done, like the huge drilling barge you see on this video:

    Wow! Seriously humongous transportation indeed! Thanks for posting that one. Amazing what they are putting out there to transport huge loads across the oceans.

    The BLUE MARLIN can carry what you would say an "impossible" load, as big and heavy as the floating oil rig THUNDER HORSE!

    That is almost beyond belief. I only say almost, because I saw a video of that, seems impossible to me, though it is! :)

    The DOCKWISE VANGUARD, in all her splendor!!

    Here, she carries the 30 000+ IJN ISE Hybrid Battleship.

    Nice work on both of them MML.

    I will admit to having a "double take" moment when this came across on the E Mail list this morning. sign1

    With you, there were other three or four followers, including Zathros.

    Let's see what feedback the Master will give to this beauty! :)

    The papercraft can be downloaded from my website (always on my signature below).

    Be sure to download these two photos too, and to consult them while building the VANGUARD.

    I think these ships could deliver tremendous amounts of emergency aide to a country that could be off loaded in times that virtually no other ship of any kind could equal! :)

    VANGUARD's capacity is really mind-twisting: 117 000 metric tons onto that wide open deck, far much more than what BLUE MARLIN, the current largest, could ever carry!!jawdrop

    The file is now on the Downloads section, for all to enjoy, as well as the ISE Class Hybrid Battleship (seen on previous photos onto the VANGUARD), which was completely forgot... hamr

    I don't think you need anybody help in designing anything. You do great on your own. I applaud your efforts, and I am happy, very Happy, that you share them with us! :)

    Arigato, Zathros-san! :wave:

    And yes, you are right, we can do any papercraft, we just need to want it even harder, and I wanted the DOCKWISE VANGUARD so much! :)

    Now, time for her loads: the first, as you know, is the larger TAHITI Spar Buoy, which will have it's traces in a couple hours, after I come back from work.
