Rick - nice little model!

Skippy - JSC do a 1/250 model of an oil rig (Dolphin) which is made available from time to time. They also do a 1/400 model of the same rig - this is always in stock.

See here for a build of the 1/250 version.

I have thought about doing one, but could never figure out how to design one properly (scale vs. detail). maybe a drilling ship would be easier?

Hello Friends,

I am not aware of a drilling ship by JSC. Are you referring to the FSPO PETROJARL CIDADE DE RIO DAS OSTRAS?

The 1:250 BREDFORD DOLPHIN is no longer a Special Edition and is available all the time from Norwegische Bohrinsel BREDFORD DOLPHIN - Artikeldetailansicht - HMV - Hamburger Modellbaubogen Verlag. Also available is the associated lasercut by Draf Model. At 50 Euros, a steal.

Regards,

Cris

As a side note:
If the Bredford Dolphin is too big and/or ambitious, there's also HMV's research platform FINO 3:
FINO3 Offshore-Forschungsplattform in der Nordsee - Artikeldetailansicht - HMV - Hamburger Modellbaubogen Verlag
Beware: That one is not an oil rig, but has a lot of it's features plus a very nice Bo-105 Helicopter!

Hi Herky!

No worries! Had me excited for a minute and I went looking...Over on Kartonbau.de a member has scaled up this model to 1:250. Its rather huge!

Best Regards,

Cris

There is now a second laser detail set by Draf for the 1:250 Bredford Dolphin. It is for the platforms only (Cat. No. 94sb-L). Just got mine a few days ago.
