    The Seawise Giant (or Jahre Viking, Happy Giant, Knock Nevis, Mont, whatever you want to call her) has always been an interesting vessel if not for the sole fact that she is the longest moving object made thus far by man. The kit I'm currently drawing up of her shows the ship when she was still the Seawise Giant. Considering it's 1:1000 scale, there's not much detail there, though I'm doing my best. Currently all I have left to do is the superstructure and hopefully I can upload the model within the week.

    WOW. That was fast. Kinda unrelated, but did you post the Ironside Dalek papercraft anywhere?

    Probably gonna get the model up tomorrow night; I have some other things to take care of and I'd like to do a proper cover page and final edit before I release the thing.

    I would think a lot of train guys would be interested in that. Great for a diorama. :)

    I can't believe you went on for it, RocketmanTan-san!! O.O
    But while you are doing that, I will someday design the BERGE STAHL, which is by her turn the biggest bulk carrier! :p

    How many pages are supposed to be delivered?

    Also, if I print it 50% larger - or A3 sheets - what scale may it take?

    It's a total of four pages, and when printed at 150%, it'll be 1:666 scale, I believe

    Are you able to make it in a way I can print it to be a 1/700, even if approximate?

    I wanted to join it with my Nippon Kaigun 1/700 ships, so all can go the same scale. :)
