I wish to make a diorama including the Bredford Dolphin and an AHTS. There are several classes of Anchor Handlers, the Maresk A class, UT704 and IMT 966 are older but have beautiful lines. The AX104 being one of the newest designs.
However there are very few models of this class of multi-function ship. I have settled on the NED8167L designed and built by Remontowa and first depicted in JSC 291 DU MOULIN TIDE (ToKro). The model was later revised and reissued as the Dutch Emergency Towing Vessel IEVOLI BLACK (Guther ) which serves in the same capacity as the NORDIC (Michael112)
I wish to recolor the sheets to reflect the Day Tide, a vessel owned and operated by Tidewater Inc. one of the largest suppliers of Offshore Energy vessels in the world. Incidentally, the area where I grew up near Norfolk Virgina is called the Tidewater area and is where the company started many years ago. The Day Tide is based out of Port Vila and fly's the Vanuatu flag.
I will shortly follow up with a quite a bit more information and eventually begin construction
