Description

Endurance Antartic Expedition

Endurance was the three-masted barquentine in which Sir Ernest Shackleton sailed for the Antarctic on the 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. She was launched in 1912 from Sandefjord in Norway; three years later, she was crushed by ice in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica, causing her to sink.

Designed by Ole Aanderud Larsen, Endurance was built at the Framnæs shipyard in Sandefjord, Norway and fully completed on 17 December 1912. She was built under the supervision of master wood shipbuilder Christian Jacobsen, who was renowned for insisting that all men in his employment were not just skilled shipwrights but also be experienced in seafaring aboard whaling or sealing ships. Every detail of her construction had been scrupulously planned to ensure maximum durability: for example, every joint and fitting was cross-braced for maximum strength.

This ship along with others such as The Sirius and The Unicorn join Tintin on his adventures throughout the world!

Craftsmenship

Now you can get the beautiful Le Soleil Royal ship model for your collection. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. We selected the finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use “plank on bulkhead” construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.

You can find many details of the model such as complex rigging with hundreds of blocks and deadeyes, figurehead, anchors, bell, and other fittings made from metal.  This model comes standard with a solid wood base and it’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector
