on Instagram there is a Polish guy who makes lovely cardmodels.

Perhaps he can help you with some of your questions

Niklas G (IMO: 9534303) renamed to Wilson Valencia. Remains under ATG-flag. I suppose only a chartername.

The bulker Florentia IMO 9714666 suffered a 4 metre gash in her port hull after colliding with the dock wall whilst moving from the KGV dock to 108/9 berth in Southampton on Saturday 25th.

Video of the incident taken by my mate Phil Kempsey features on Mail on Line.

OK, 1:96 Scale.

I model hull plating to a scale of 1:48 only. I had a few discussions with shipmodellers of museums in the past and they convinced me that in small scales a model looks more realistic if small details are only printed or painted on. I made the test and really had to agree.

For cardboard models I use mainly "UHU Alleskleber" (all purpose glue), CA for small parts and a mixture mainly made of wood-glue for the larger hull parts.

But most of the time I use cardboard models as a template for bigger models made of wood, brass, styrene, ..

Best regards,

Good points Patrick.
The ferry across to Harwich and/or Shotley, especially on a sunny day, is pleasant and provides good views towards Trinity container terminal.

Within easy walking distance from the ferry pontoon, Harwich has a variety of good places to eat, an RNLI station, a preserved light vessel, a small maritime museum and a Victorian pier dating from 1852. Choose a sunny day to visit, it's worth it.

Regards, Rick

As Rick has said it all, I'd just add that in the afternoon you could take the ferry across to Harwich for more photo opportunities - or walk along the beach to get ships approaching or sailing away from the point.
