vessel: working and research boat
The ALEX is a non-scale model of a modern 14 m multi-task boat. The
model is based on a modern planing hull, and is therefore very fast and
agile. The hard-chine hull is of plastic construction. All the ABS
parts are supplied laser-cut, and can be slotted together and glued
The hull is assembled on a Depron jig. The power system consists of two
electric motors which can either be controlled individually (2 x Multi
25 speed controller) or in common by a single Multi 40 controller. Two
rudder systems are used for directional control. The A-mast towards the
stern can also be servo-operated. The towing mechanism is rugged enough
to tow other boats.
The wheelhouse is assembled completely from mahogany components. The
etched instrument panel components make it possible to illuminate the
large number of instruments. All the model’s lamps can be lit
using 3 mm LEDs. The searchlight is assembled from ready-made etched
parts, and is fully articulated. The reflector and LED are carefully
matched, and produce an exceptionally powerful, accurately focussed
beam of light.
The model can be further expanded at the builder’s
discretion, since plenty of space is available in the hull for
additional working systems such as bow thruster, lighting, sound
effects or winches.
The model kit contains:
All laser-cut ABS parts required to build the model, Depron jig,
fittings and propeller shafts, motor mounts and rudders.
The extensive set of etched nickel-silver components contains more than
a hundred parts, including railing stanchions, searchlight, working
door hinges, panel instruments, ventilator panels and much more.
