New ship: Patagonia

This cargo vessel is based in the Patagonia, a GCV built in Nakskov (Denmark) in 1951. I couldn't find more information about this ship than an old picture, the ship measures and its engine.

The real specifications for this ship are (taken from mariners-l.co.uk):
  • Length: 144,62 m
  • Beam (~"width"): 18,60 m
  • Draught (~"height"): 11,66 m
  • Gross tonnage: 8663 gt
  • Max. speed: 15 kn (~28 Km/h)
  • Engine power: 5500 hp (~4050 kW)

See some pictures at mariners-l.co.uk

After a bit of work using blender, these are some results:
