      Has any tried to design the Maersk Triple E ship with their Delf Ship program?

      Hello Duane, my personal answer is: No, not yet.
      But I think we can start an interesting new topic about innovation in maritime architecture.
      There is indeed a recent design that intrigues me, not in Containers Carriers but on VLCC.
      It is all about the management of the water ballast: a problem that I was not aware of, but is a great concern in the maritime construction world.
      Here is a file with all the information I could gather:

      Not so much, I admit so if anybody will contribute, would be welcome.
      with regards.

      I’m sure that I can take the Emma Maersk frame and modify it to make the Maersk Triple E. It will take some time here and there, but it could be done.

      Would anyone know where I might find lines for the Emma Maersk as I would like to build a radio controll model of her.

      Thanks

      Emma Maersk design is Very different in bow and stern lines from the triple E.
      So I think it is better to start from a blank sheeet; lack of blueprints does’nt help:
      Best pictures available are in the official Maersk site, facebook page and Vimeo channel.
      This one for example:

      Carry on.

      Here is a link to a guy who made a drawing of the hull lines for the Emma Maersk they are very good and should work out well for you. The drawing is about half way down the page.

      What scale are you going to build the Emma in?

      Also here is a link to a guy building her in 1/65 scale.

      I agree to what J├╝rgen replied.
      The Triple E Class’es hull has a twin skeg stern construction which considerably deviates from the conventional single screw stern of the Maersk E-Class.
      Also the hull lines of the Triple E appear much fuller to me, judging from the posted 3D artist’s impression.
      But this doesn’t surprise me because the propulsion power is distributed to now two shafts and the Maersk operational concept of these new breads of ULCC is slow steaming mostly,
      whereas the single screw Maersk E-Class needed to be sleek to be able to propel her at all.
      And yet, despite the biggest ever installed Diesel engine prop combo, the E-Class ships I read somewhere are considered to be still underpowered.

      So, I too would rather start reconstructing a DS model of the Triple E-Class altogether from scratch although I already reconstructed a DS model of the forerunner E-Class a while ago.
      I uploaded the fbm file for free download onto a file server of a German model boaters forum.
      The only “catch” here is that the download is only available to users registered to said forum.
      But anyone can register there at no expense or hassle.

      Indeed I wanted to upload a couple of my DS models (also the E-Class) to this site’s model data base here.
      But I miss an upload link here for this end because on my mail to the moderator (which seemed the only designated way to participate to me) where I made a request for submission I never received a reply.
      If my DS model of another container ship, which I attached as sample, hadn’t met their standards, they at least could have sent me a reply notifying me of their disapproval.
      But on the other hand, comparing my outpour to many of the other DS models in the samples data base here, I wouldn’t consider it that much inferior anyway.

      G’day Deadwood, I’m very curious to see your other container ship hulls, besides that for the E (PS) Class vessels. I myself am working on a hull for the Maersk B (Boston) Class Fast container vessels, from what little info is available….
