Peter Esch - Models of Offshore Support Vessels

OSV Model Fleet - mine and friends`

Western Regent is a Seismic Research Vessel of the type UT 747 designed by Ulstein. I chose Western Regent as I wanted to build one of the more unusaul types of OSV. My biggest problem was finding detailed Information on these speciailzed vessels. Especially about how they are working. It seems to be top secret. Anyway I like Western Regent very much. She has been heavily converted since I started the model but I will build her as on delivery. The hull is made from GRP, the superstructure is from Polystyrene but have not worked on it for quite a while and Intend rebuilding the superstructure with Bronze sheet when I restart this project. The main deck contains several meters of brass profiles already. The scale is 1:75.
