Hi all

I am a sound and projector designer and I was wondering if anyone out there has a model of Shackelton's ship The Endurance?

​We are doing a theatrical show next March and I'm starting on ideas, one of the ideas is using Frank Hurleys pics, see attached pic (1 there are about 7 PNG images here, when projecting they are moving slowing) (2 Stuck in the Ice)

The new idea is using shadows, but I need a replica or something close, or boat plans, or close up pics, or a 3D model, anything at this point as my research on the net is coming up short.

Thanks for reading




The ship was launched on 17 December 1912 and was initially christened Polaris 

​A brief synopsis on the story... After the race to the South Pole ended in December 1911 with Roald Amundsen's conquest, Shackleton turned his attention to the crossing of Antarctica from sea to sea, via the pole. To this end he made preparations for what became the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914–17. Disaster struck this expedition when its ship, Endurance, became trapped in pack ice and was slowly crushed before the shore parties could be landed.
