New ship: MV Lake Illawarra

I've based this new ship in the MV Lake Illawarra, an Australian medium-sized ore ship. This ship was built in 1958, and had an accident in january 1975, when crashed with the Tasman Bridge and obviously got sunk.

The real specifications for this ship are (taken from
  • Length: 135,62 m
  • Beam (~"width"): 17,86 m
  • Draught (~"height"): 9,54 m
  • Cargo capacity: N/A
  • Max. speed: 12 knots (~22 Km/h)
  • Engine power: N/A

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

This ship has been coded into Simutrans as a modern bulk ship, which has to fill the timeline gap between 1958 and 1982, but it might be modified to cover a longer sting.
