Are those the only sisterships or there could be more, owned by different companies? If so, then they might have blueprints of their fleet on site. And since sites change through years, I'd recommend using the WebArchive - sometimes blueprints can be found in previous versions of the owner's site.

Lovely model, Arne! Getting quite a fleet there already! Grin
All are in the same scale?

Hello once again!
There are a couple of photos from years ago I remember seeing here - classic fully geared likely 70s built ships with length probably over 120m & they all had this same feature which was making them unique - faceted hulls. If anyone knows such ship(s), please list.

Hi!  Was searching for GA plans of tugs & came across this one https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f3/b1/95/f3b1959bff15863a7dea625cf70b51e6.jpg - looks like a compact "cute" tug, but I can't find any more infos about it. Is it a some existing/existed tug or just one of many unreleased projects? Searching by image brings only a couple more of the same GA plan from Pinterest.  A closer look, on the funnel there's a logo - I kinda recall seeing such though...

Hi, Chas!  Thanks for an input - wish I could see examples of best/worst shots & them from a zoomin then. Also, I did read some reviews say that these cameras is "not the Sony it used to be".
I need a compact camera which I can carry in my pants' pocket like a smartphone.  It must have high zoom cause with my current one with 5x optical zoom 10mpx I can only do nice shots of ships that are within 50-200m from me & in a good light.  Taking pics in my own room is almost pointless with it - even in a good light all comes out grainy & worse than if via current good smartphone. I was quite satisfied with how pics come out via Huawei P20 Pro, especially on a zoom, but buying that just cause of it's camera is a no.
None of the shops in my city had either of Sony DSC HX80 / Canon SX740HS / Nikon CoolPix A900 I thought I could try in my hands - all stores had very simple & very complex & big cameras.
Honestly, I bought my current camera https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonyt300 back then just cause it had a very cool design & well... cause I needed a camera.  Grin  Here's an example of a decent shot by it in a good light on a 5x zoom - I was like 100m away from the object.  I'm very picky to quality when viewed in full size & here all details can be clearly seen: https://i.imgur.com/8OdoIaq.jpg  The camera I want should produce much better than this & in a wide range of conditions.

Well, which one could you recommend among these:

https://www.dpreview.com/products/sony/compacts/sony_dschx80/specifications
https://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/compacts/canon_sx740hs/specifications

Also, does it matter which brand & where it was made?

Hello, been quite a while!  Roll Eyes
Could anyone suggest a "best" compact camera?
Should cost around 300 Euros or less, lotsa megapixels, high optical zoom & quality of pics, etc.  I was more or less satisfied with my Sony DSC T-300 from 2008 with 10Mpx, so a quick browse across current Sony compact cameras, I choose:
https://www.sony.com/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-hx50-hx50v#product_details_default
https://www.sony.com/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-hx80#product_details_default
https://www.sony.com/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-wx350#product_details_default
https://www.sony.com/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-wx500
Also
https://www.canon.co.uk/cameras/powershot-sx740-hs/
A tilting touch screen would be a plus.
Something around those or from other brands with similar features or better.

Kind regards!

Heh, while I was wishing to make a scale model of that ship "someday", just found this:

15  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Handling tweendeck covers on: January 10, 2018, 08:47:13 pm
Yes, I'm aware that tweendeck covers can be simply handled by own cranes & stacked where needed (I saw many photos with cargo vessels having their tweendeck covers stacked in front of the superstructure & the hold is fully closed by hatch covers), but in the DEO VOLENTE brochure it says:

Quote
An electro-hydraulic Rodenstaal traveling hatch cover crane is used to handle and transport the pontoon hatch covers which can then be stacked up to a maximum height of covers. The same traveling crane can be used for moving and setting up the two transportable grain bulkheads fitted for bulk cargo stowing purposes that can be slotted at several positions in each hold.
Both hatch covers and tweendeck hatches are handled by an electric hydraulic driven gantry crane.

So I wonder how...
