Hello my friends. I have start the build of this new project a few days now (almost a month) that I will like to share with you and my goal is to be ready to hit the water in about 15 days. This custom made Oil Rig Platform in 1/50 scale will be radio controlled only in some operations like: the big crane, the anchors, and the dropping of the life boat. It will not be self movable but it will be towed by rc tug boats like the real oil rig platforms. And we have lots of them in our community. So let’s start. Here is the dimensions of the platform: Length(overall): 90cm Deck length: 70cm Width: 45cm Deck height: 50cm Overall height: 120cm Wight(about): 25-30Kg. As you will see I use for this project very cheap materials. So for the deck I use two pieces of melamine. I convert the crane that I was used in my private pond so I can use it on this platform. I use the three legs of the crane for base of the helipad. Smart he?! The helipad is from plywood 5mm. I forgot to mention that this platform must be transferred in two boxes. So everything on it must be assembled and disassembled for transportation. That is why the deck is in two pieces.
