    Hi everyone!

    Another "work" that I've been making for several years.
    Made of papercard end a few other materials.

    I can send a post of how it's been built : tell me again whether interested, I'll post it!

    Pretty cool. I've never scene a model of one before and they are some the largest structures on the planet. Great diorama

    Thank you Ronson.

    Indeed, it is a "big" model : Around 70 cm height, 75 cm length and 40 cm width.
    Everything (or quasi...) located on an offshore drilling station is reproduced but smaller : if I had respected the true dimensions of a true offshore well, it had been made a surface of 2 square meters in my choosen scale (1/72)!!

    I created the crew too with plastic figurines from a german submarine crew, and german and USAF mechanics crews.
