As with all our marine model making projects, the hull of this model for BMT Defence Services was carved from CAD supplied to us on our CNC machine. At 1/200th scale the level of detail was streamlined accordingly; elements such as handrails and netting were largely etched brass, allowing for a combination of incredibly fine tolerances and strength. We were also able to include 3D printed components, such as the 1/200 helicopter. As with several of our other marine model making projects, the model is mounted on a polished steel plate, which shows the below-waterline detail such as bow thrusters, propellers and rudders.
The LSV uses the BMT Aegir® tailor-able platform design, which can be readily modified to suit different naval requirements. The LSV has been derived for the Royal Norwegian Navy, and a configured version is to be used by the Royal Navy in the form of the MARS Tanker.
The model continues our strong tradition of high-quality marine model making, for industrial, leisure and military applications. Head to Our Work to see some of the other models we have made.
