Learning Large Ship Handling on 1/24 Scale Models

With a 1/24 linear scale, the time scale factor is 1/5: everything happens five times faster than with a full scale ship. You might not think a large container ship with a displacement around 250,000 tonnes would be much affected by the wind, but with containers piled high on the deck, ir has a an area exposed to wind of 20,000 square metres.
