it’s a real challenge

re­pre­sen­ta­tion, and when tal­king about ships of new de­si­gn whi­ch co­st tens when not hun­dreds of mil­lions, it could be wor­th the in­vest­ment. Is it pos­si­ble for a mo­del built to sca­le but has yet to be built, chan­ge in so­me way, as the pro­ject de­si­gner wi­shes to mo­di­fy his pro­ject de­si­gn a lit­tle? Cer­tain­ly, sin­ce the ac­tual mo­del al­lo­ws you to per­cei­ve that im­ba­lan­ce, and that di­shar­mo­ny whi­ch pa­per dra­wings and even the mo­st ad­van­ced ren­de­rings tend to con­ceal. In other words the­re is a rea­li­stic per­ma­nent tie bet­ween the ori­gi­nal pro­ject de­si­gn and your mo­del. Is that what you we­re im­ply­ing. Yes,and in the va­st ma­jo­ri­ty of ca­ses, spe­cial­ly when you’re dea­ling wi­th ya­ch­ts that ha­ve yet to be built, or when they ha­ve been built but on­ly ve­ry re­cen­tly, yes it is ju­st li­ke that. It’s ano­ther ket­tle of fi­sh when you’re dea­ling wi­th hi­sto­ric clas­sics for exam­ple, and so­me of the ori­gi­nal de­tails ha­ve go­ne amiss, ha­ve been lo­st etc. Then, when that hap­pens mo­del ma­kers can re­ly on­ly on their ‘en­lar­ged’ sen­se of ob­ser­va­tion whi­ch is what ma­kes them spe­cial and the work be­co­mes a real challenge, whi­ch is ex­tre­me­ly sti­mu­la­ting. It is not ea­sy to find con­tri­bu­tors ca­pa­ble enou­gh to hand­le su­ch si­tua­tions. In fact you are qui­te cor­rect, it isn’t.you can find an ex­pert in a 3D prin­ter, but the 3D prin­ter kno­ws no­thing about ya­ch­ts; li­kewi­se you can find a mo­del maker who­se hands are wor­th gold but does not know how to work so­me of the new ma­chi­ne­ry. The Eu­ro­pean De­si­gn In­sti­tu­te is of­ten wil­ling to help us out th­rou­gh its school of in­du­strial mo­del­ling. Ne­ver­the­less word of mou­th and per­so­nal con­nec­tions in the field still are the be­st op­tion. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion www.mo­del­ma­ker­group.com
