Level 32 : Artisan Engineer
Hey guys,

Mr_D and i was working on our second Gantry the last days. And we really would like to show you guys some previews! We hope you like it. I did post a old one in the past. But it was totaly wrong in details and demensions. But this one is 100% accurate in terms of demensions and details! We followed the Original Plan which never was published in the Internet before!


Erecting the giant Arrol Gantry over the slipways for Olympic and Titanic

In 1908, an enormous steel gantry was erected over the two new

slipways, Nos. 2 and 3, built for the construction of Olympic and

Titanic. At 840 feet long by 240 feet wide, and with a height of 228

feet to the top of the upper crane, the new gantry could accommodate

both ships.

It was equipped with a system of cranes and had four large electric

lifts. Supplied by Sir William Arrol & Co. of Glasgow, the

completed structure weighed almost 6000 tons.

"The Arrol Gantry at Harland & Wolff was a dominant sight on

Belfast’s skyline for many years. It remained in use until the 1960s."

If anybody have a Question about this Gantry, im on Skype!
Progress: 100% Complete

Thank you :)
absoloutley incredible :D will you add a download when its done?
We're notg sure yet. But maybe if we release our Titanic. In different styles. Like one in the Gantry and one in Dock ecc.

Thank you :)

wich titanic do you mean :O?
Our Titanic. Im the Chief Engineer of the Team "Gantry 401" which builds the RMS Titanic" in 4/1 Scale which fits in this gantry just 100% perfectly. :)

can you send me the link?

ich wusste erst seid einer weile dass du deutsch redest :p

deine/ eure titanic sieht sensationell aus! du solltest es bald auch hier hochladen :D!
Danke :) Und ja ich bin Deutscher :P Steht in meiner Profil Beschreibung ;)

Und wir wollen es erst posten wenn Sie auch wirklich fertig ist. Um den "Wow" Effekt zu maximieren.

will haben ;-;

ihr habt wohl noch keine 50% erreicht oder?
Nein ^^. Sagen wir mal so. Tanktop ist das schwerste deck. Und es benötigt viel zeit und Planung. Da ich alleine die Original Pläne besitze und verwende muss ich jede Bemaßung einbauen. Das kostet Zeit und mühe.

das dauert wohl noch jahre ^^
Wir gehen von ca 1 1/2 Jahren noch aus. Aber mit Dock und Gantry.
