SketchUp is an important tool for building a ship model from scratch. Ship models in 3d are available for free download. The high-resolution models were all designed with SketchUp and can be downloaded as .SKP files.
Cargo Ship with interior
It’s a SketchUp model of a cardboard cargo ship. The interior model also includes a full detailed engine room, a control room, a workshop, a crew cabin, a cafeteria, galley, bar, a recreation room, a gym, a pump room, and more. A great deal of marine machinery is on board as well, such as high-pressure water pumps, four fire pumps, ballast pumps, three diesel generators, fuel filters, a freshwater generator, pipes, cooling pipes, lube oil pipes, and a lot of storage tanks. It is also possible to see the crane’s control panel compartment. Similar to a modern ship, the navigation bridge is equipped with many control panels, thruster controls, and communication equipment.
Colony Transport Ship
Everything that a colony need is on board a ship. This is what this plug-in looks like:
- Defensible debris shield
- Solar power generators for rotating crew sections
- There are colonists in cryogenic sleep in the cargo section or the inner section of the ship
- Observation station in orbit
- Defending engines from debris and collecting asteroids.
Clipper “Cutty Sark”
Cutty Sark is the name of this clipper ship. With steam propulsion having halted the development of design during the time when it was built, it was one of the fastest tea clippers of its time. After the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, steamships also gained a shorter route to China, so the Cutty Sark spent a few years trading tea before setting a ten-year record in trading wool from Australia. During conservation work, the vessel suffered fire damage on 21 May 2007. After being restored by 25th April 2012, it is now open to the public.
ARGO NAUTIX traditional Rhine ship Cologne Oberlaender 1531
Oberlander’s are ships from the Middle Rhine period mainly use between Mainz and Cologne in the 15th-18th centuries.
The fairway is formed by taking into account the latest conditions along the path. There is a trapezoidal shape to it. In the ship, the widest areas are at the bottom and the rear. A ship’s bow measures 1.5 to 2 times its width at the back. In the stern, the floor is completely flat and is pulled up into a large hut, which rises sharply to a height of 6-7 m, and then steeply drops to the deck. There are no peaks or drops in the deck from bow to stern. A bow catches it as it falls. Despite its appearance, it is not heavy.
Approximately 10 degrees separates top from bottom. This mast pole is 6-7 meters high and used for towing. The Oberlaender is likely to be viable for another 100-120 years. The top strake is flush with the round window since there is no transition board in front of it.
The form contains half a row of gangways that represented the boating party. Hauptstadt bei Bonn Beuel and Mainz at the Vilzbacher shipyard were the main sites of Oberlaender. Often, the ships use a couple of times before being demolished to salvage wood for house construction.
Victory Cargo Ship
In World War II, North American shipyards produced large numbers of Victory cargo ships to replace German submarine losses. In comparison to the earlier Liberty ships, they were more modern in design, were bigger, and had steam turbine engines that provided higher speeds, so they could participate in high-speed convoys, making them more difficult targets for U-boats. Five hundred and thirty-one Victory ships were built in total.
