Colombo Express Container Ship
20+" New Container ship
model with loads of containers!
Kit# T121 $33.95
The "Colombo Express" was launched on
11.4.2005 after only five months in construction as the largest Container Motor
Ship (CMS) in the world.
The vessel, which operates for Hapag-Lloyd under the German flag, is still superlative. With a length of 335.47 m, a beam of 42.94 m and a height of 60.50 m,
she is as big as three football pitches. With a dead weight tonnage of 103,800 she has parking space for 8,749 20-ft standard containers.
The marine diesel engine generates 68,640 kW (93,324 hp) giving the ship a top speed of 25 knots.
With a crew of 23, the ship operates a service every two months from the home port of Hamburg.
The "Colombo Express" class generation includes seven sister ships.
The model is a true-to-life reproduction of the Hamburg giant with a two-piece hull.
With 23 finely engraved container blocks the ship can be represented with a maximum load.
However without the load the deck with its true-to-original structural details,
separate gangways and free-fall lifeboat aft, give an idea of the gigantic proportions of the vessel.
Further highlights are the filigree bridge superstructures with steps,
the command bridge, the masts and the radar equipment. The bitts and windlasses are integrally cast to scale.
Rudder and propeller are movable.
There are optional decals for "Colombo Express" and five other ships of the same class.
