M/F Faaborg II
M/F Faaborg II was a small island-ferry, which served the inhabitants of the two islands Avernakø and Lyø in the South Funen Archipelago.
About this creation
The Faaborg II was built and launched in Norway at the Aukra Bruk shipyard in June 1965. It served in Norway until it was bought by the Danish shipping company Ø-færgen A/S in December 1990. It was bought to replace the very aged ferry Faaborg. The ferry faithfully served the inhabitants of the two islands Avernakø and Lyø in the South Funen Archipelago for 21 years, until it was decomissioned in 2012. Guess the name of the new ferry replacing Faaborg II, - of course Faaborg III :-)

I really enjoy looking at the the beautiful ship models from builders like Jim Mcdonough, Konajra, Anders T and others. They gave me the inspiration to build my first LEGO ship model. Because of very limited space for keeping my LEGO models, I didn`t want to build too big, and decided to go for a small ferry, that carries the same name as my native city.
The ferry is built in a 1:100 scale, and can be separated from the lower hull to make it a waterline model. The hull, the car deck, upper hullsides and parts of the superstructure are built by extensive use of Studs Not On-Top technique. Both bow and stern gates open. The real sterngate opens in two foldable sections, which I wasn`t able to do at this modest scale. Another thing I wasn`t able to make was the bumper edge around the hull. I thought of using some pneumatic hose, but couldn`t find a way to fix it properly to the hull, but I think it looks allright without it. I have had a great time creating this little ferry I have seen so many times, and I think it came out very nice. I hope you enjoy it too.

The model can be separated in three part: A construction bedding, the hull and the superstructure.

Now its a waterline model with increased playability.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti What a truly brilliant design and beautiful model. I love the shaping of the hull and how it separates to make a waterline model. The display stand is really cool too. Outstanding
Thank you so much Clayton ! Your comment is very much appreciated! Making it separate in hull and superstructure was actually quite straight forward.

Quoting John Klapheke This is a really cool model. I'm particularly fascinated with the scale in which you built this boat...very interesting... Also, the fact that it has the ability to be opened is amazing. I don't believe I've seen someone build a ship so that it can show the waterline and then separate. Really neat-o. A+ work, here, bravo!
Thanks for the nice words John! I`m glad you like my little ferry. I try not to build big things, to keep cost as low as possible. Fellow builder Jim McDonough http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/423897 has built a tugboat which can separate into a waterline model and a "full hull" ship.

Quoting Gabor Horvath Wow! It's a superb model! I really like, how you figured out every small detailes, shapes and lines on it, so you got a very cohesive model! The opening features are very impressive, too! Great work my friend! :)

Quoting Per Bonde Very impressed! Hi Henrik. This is really a great build. At first I thought it to be much bigger. Even more impressive when I realized the actual size. Nearly speechless. Congrats!
Thanks a lot my friend! The size was indeed very important, since I´m running out of space to keep my models. This one fits perfectly in my display cabinet.

Quoting jim mcdonough really nice build.your version looks so much nicer than the real one (photo of yours leaving the harbour)nice smooth look on the hull and superstructure,and it works too interesting the techniques used in building,i thought you had messed up with the raised bow section until i googled it.only thing is port/starboard light recess have been changed to black a lot of years ago(no longer red and green only the lights)could not find any pics of the hull online as i would have thought this would have been twin props,great idea with the detatchable hulls.as per usual great work on this stunning little ship
Thank you Jim! The real one isn`t the most pretty ferry I know, but some how I love it. I know the bow looks a bit wierd, but this way a normal size truck is able to drive through the car deck. I had to make the port/starboard lights like this because the 1x2 transred/green plates are vital for holding the slopes underneath in place. The hull is made purely out of my imagination, but I have found information about the propulsion. It had a 5-cylinder 4SA Bergen diesel, 570 kW or 760 HP driving one propeller. And 2 diesel help engines, 160 kW. I have no plans yet for another ship, but I`m sure this won`t be the last.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary Strong work, as usual Henrik! Interesting write-up, too. Especially like your treatment of the car hold.
Thanks Jeremy! I didn`t expect this old ferry to be particular interesting, but it has been a part of the daily life in Faaborg so many years, that I just had to make it. I`m glad you like it!

Quoting C.K. Yee First of all I give you A Big Wow ! Wow ! for you, That is really awesome and a lot of nice details. I like overall shape which very close to the real M/F Faaborg. The functionality and playability is very nice. Lastly the photo editing is very matchup.
Thank you C.K. Yee! I´m glad you like it. Have to make some cars, trucks and tractors, to go with it.

Quoting David Roberts I like this sturdy ship. My favourite photo is the portrait oriented one of the bows. The last two photos match up really well: nicely built!
Thank you David! I had great fun making the two photos match up, cutting objects, working in layers and so on, and I still have a lot to learn.
