SS Frisia Heinkelmodel

The next project is a small, but attractive one: the Hapag Steamer Frisia. While I build the hull I give a try to the details on deck like deckhouses, skylights, cargo hatches etc.

Good start. I like the idea of having the deck bits all set to go.
When you get to the rigging I hope you will give a detailed description of how you manage it, as looking at the pictures of such make my eyeballs spin.

Very interesting project! There are not so many models of ships of that period. Is it still available?

I am looking forward to your next steps.

Good luck&best regards

Nice work on the hull framing and deck houses.

I look forward to seeing more of this build.

the shelter deck and hull is in place, aft I must improve the hull a bit. I attached the parts I do not need etch parts for. As example I make a mixture between Fernando´s suggestion, the deck plan issued in Meyersche Konversationslexikon 1895, the deck plans of Frisia´s sisters issued by Haack /Busley 1892 (Reprint 1986), the model at Technisches Museum, Munich and the model at norwayheritage.

The essentials are in place minus the masts and boats. The skylights gave me some headache as I wanted to add some extra- fine details to come close to the model at Munich Museum. But I am not sure if it was worth the trouble and extra spending on the etch parts. Anyway - the deck fittings look nice. Some minor details are still to be build: gangways, stairs to the raised platform bridge/machine, the aft railing etc. At the moment I am experimenting with the masts and sails made of silk. The typical furl of the spar is a challenge. Fernando suggested four boats like in the GA plan, but the only pic of Frisia suggests a later change to additional boats which I want to follow.

Wonderful work ! You might give silkspan a try for making the sails.
