Fram by Tadeusz43 - scale 1:100 polar exploration ship

Recommended Posts


Construction of the polar ship Fram model is part of a larger project POLAR.
I am going to build model ships Farm, Maud and Gjøa all in scale 1:100
The construction will be conducted at the same time starting from the hull through the equipment and rigging.
Hulls of ships Fram and Maud will be built as POB  for bulkheads was used birch plywood 4 mm thick

planks was lime strips 2x5 mm ,.

The smallest Gjøa will have a hull constructed as “bread and butter” material used HDF board.

Original construction drawings of all ships I have got from Norwegian Maritime Museum ( contact person Mr Per Gisle Galåen   Per.Gisle.Galaen@marmuseum.no )but not all of them were sufficient information to build models, there was a lack of equipment drawings and plans of the deck.

The best are the drawings of the ship Gjøa because it plans for modeling also instruction is included but in Norwegian only.

With the help of our colleague Igorsky and additional shipment from  NMM was possible to complete the necessary documentation for the ship Fram but for Maud will be necessary partial improvisation

on area of deck arrangement and equipment.

I collect also all available photos of this ships from my archive and the net.

Drawings was scanned and scale was reduced up to required 1:100 in computer .

That looks great, good progress - can you show us a little bit mot of the how vou gozt from he plans drawing to the bulkheads shap you used at the end?


It's important for me due to the open hatches, stairhouses and skylights you can look inside the ship.


I'm looking for further progress and sending best wishes from Berlin,
