The SS Nomadic, sometimes referred to as the "Titanic's little sister", is a White Star Line steamship commissioned in 1911. It is a ferry put into service to embark passengers of the new Olympic class liners in the port of Cherbourg unsuitable for their large size.

 

At that time, it operated in duo with the Traffic: the Nomadic carried first and second class passengers while the second carried third class passengers and luggage. In 1927, the White Star Line sold it to the Cherbourg Transshipment Company, which used it for the same purpose and with the same name. In 1934, it was sold again, this time to the Cherbourg Towing and Salvage Company, which renamed it Ingénieur Minard.

 

During the Second World War, the ship manages to escape to Great Britain where it is used by the Royal Navy. It was then returned to the port of Cherbourg, where it was used as a ferry for the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth.

 

Retired from service in 1968, she was sold to a private individual six years later. The latter transformed it into a floating restaurant on the Seine.

 

Twenty-five years later, destined for the scrapyard, it was saved by the action of associations which led to its return to Belfast to be restored to its original state.

 

The Nomadic is the last remaining vessel of the White Star Line that is still (almost) afloat.

The plan of Bateau Modèles N°105 will help me to model, although it has a small error in the positioning of the hawsers on the side view but not on the front view, nothing serious, the base is good and probably, at first sight, taken from the original plan.

 

Some modifications have been made over the decades on this ship.


My version will be that of the first two photos, just before the installation of a bridge shelter in Cherbourg to shelter the sailors, the wheelhouse and the chadburn.

The goal of this Nomadic project is to put on board my future Titanic 1/200 from Trumpeter and the ferry as it was during its stopover in Cherbourg in 1912.

I started 3D drawing a few days ago:

8 hours 3D printing tonight of the first hull prototype. It's very successful in terms of shape and details, much better than on the T2 tanker, but the resin is broken at the end of printing, a lack of support probably, and a lack of experience on my part with this much faster printer that stresses the part a little more when it tears at the bottom of the tank.

 

My transparent film at the bottom of the tray is pierced in two places and I don't have a spare for the moment, spare FEP films were supplied with my first Anycubic printer, but not with this one, they are not available on their website (!?).

 

So I ordered from the "aftermarket" which will probably do the trick.

 

The main thing is that the model is very clean by itself, and that the printer works perfectly, I will certainly reduce the speed of the stepper motor to avoid this kind of misadventure. That's the game, we learn every day with 3D printing!  Holy And mistakes are paid cash...

 

Hull hollowing:

Height 180 mm. That is to say half of the ship. Anycubic Mono X printer.

 

It looks like it hit an iceberg, but from the wrong side!  😂

This is the best hull surface quality I've been able to print.

As for the breakage, I think it's a mechanical breakage, it's impressive to see how fast the platen goes up and down, twice as fast as the Phrozen printer. I have already reinforced some parts that are not easily accessible to the supports placed with the chitubox.

 

The shell is 1mm thick, it's not heavy either. In addition, this printer sticks strongly, to remove an object from the tray, you have to force it. However, I reduced the exposure time of the base to 45 s, I even went down to 20 s for the Harland & Wolff plates (large surface on the tray. It stuck strongly, I broke two of them at liftoff...).

 

Following the next episode. I cut the hull in two with Fusion to make another test with the Sonic Mini 4K, it will take much more time even at 50 microns.

I haven't placed any mounts yet.

I worked this weekend on the teak floor of the first deck that I grooved, and on a sheet line test, it's a first, and it's very time consuming, but it looks pretty good. 

For the sheet metal lines I did as I could because of the limitations of the program's functions regarding the projection of a plane sheet metal line plane on the curved hull.

Boilermaking day today, it's very long to realize. I had a little thought for the workers who installed the sheets and rivets at the time...! 

I would do the rivet lines with the rivet roulette wheel, once the ship is printed, especially since the hull may need to be sanded a bit.

Another build to keep my eye on. A fantastic start and as usual, you're making this 3D stuff look easy. I have started to learn FreeCAD and depending on how that goes, I may invest in a printer but we'll see.

Tks Stuart, Jerry! ;)

 

I moved forward on the forecastle, laid the teck, designed the bollards, portholes, lighting and hatches. Modify the shape of the bow.

Excellent subject the Carpathia, Steve!

Like it. Thought I was going to see the anchor windlass, next time.

Coming soon on your screen Stuart! 😜

 

 

I added some details today, the bulwark reinforcement legs, air clearance, doors for transhipment, corrected a few mistakes.

Screenshot-2020-11-18-15-01-55-735.jpg

 

Later, I had to redo the fairleads drawing because I had not taken into account the thicker bulwark, because of the printing, compared to the 1:1 model. They are a little less successful but will print better because I added a little thickness for the 1/200, they were a little too thin.

 

Not easy to incorporate.

Today I have almost finished the fitting of the hull sheets. Drawing of the ventilation ducts of the forecastle. 

 

Adding the middle transhipment doors. 

 

Corrected some errors.

Simplified drawing of the stoppers. I have some modifications to make.

 

It looks like the Titanic's, but mechanically simpler because of the very low weight of the anchor chain links on the Nomadic.

Small advance today, the windlass. A piece always delicate to draw without a plan. It remains an "evocation"...

Hello Pascal!

 

i am very impressed by your Fusion 360 skills!  I am still working with Tinkercad, it works well for 1:400/350  scale, but it is time to dive in to Fusion 360!

 

Thanks for sharing!

 

Regards

 

Andreas

Tks Andreas.

 

The printer is repaired and the film in the tray is replaced.

 

The day's progress, attempt to draw an anchor chain for fun. Anyway... I'll print it to see what it looks like. And I continued with the windlass.

Thank you Stuart.

 

Priority goes to the parts I'm going to print, the chains are just there for a 3D drawing exercise and for the general view of the windlass. 

 

The general drawing is optimized for 3D printing, some parts are bigger than reality, this windlass will be very small at 1/200. I don't have to go below 0.3 mm for some parts if I don't want to find them in mush at the bottom of the tank...

 

Anchor chains, shapes, terms, elements:

Great work so far!

 

I noticed during my own anchor cable work that the lugless joining shackle (here called Kenter) was a post WWI link (for the RN). Before that a simple U-shaped joining shackle was used. Not sure if it applies to this vessel?

 

Also, do you intend to add plank nibbing? Should be easy to do on a 3D model.

I continued today with the steam engine, bringuebales etc... 

 

I also printed out a test copy to see where I was at. I'm very happy with the size of it... 14 mm wide between the 2 gipsy heads.

 

It allowed me to validate the new Mono X  FEP film, great!

 

It only took him 37 minutes to print this windlass on the backing.

 

The quality is very good. You can see the nuts and bolts perfectly. It's better under a magnifying glass in real life, the photos have difficulty rendering the print quality.

 

The scale of the piece looks good in relation to the hull. I still have a few details to add, steering wheels.
