    Coastal steamer models of Hurtigruten

    Coastal Steamer models of Hobbyruten AS : Can you build them for me?

    Do you know anyone with experience in model ship building who could finish these model kits for me to an excellent degree of attention to details, preferably someone who have done one of them before?

    I have had these kits in storage for many years and I highly doubt I will ever have enough patience to finish them in a presentable manner: I simply don't have the skills, the knowledge, time or - most importantly, the patience to do it.

    I would love to have them completed and displayed at my apartment...

    I just don't know anybody who are good at assembling plastic models and making all the woodwork by hand... it's not done in a week for sure... Rolling Eyes

    Maybe a good project for dark autumn nights?

    The first kit is of the 1950 Sanct Svithun:





    The hull itself is premade:



    Some of the detailing, in plastic, brass and other materials (the upper plate is the bridge front):

      Does Hobbyruten still exist....? (And in any way I can't imagine to that price).

            Hurtigruten models

            Through another link, I cam across these fantastic models of two former Hurtigruten ships:

            SS Lyngen: http://www.tmbk.no/lyng1no.htm

            SS Lofoten: http://www.tmbk.no/lofot1no.htm

            Please feel free to add links, images and stories to other Hrutigruten ship models.

              On my walk outside today, I came across this ... ummm.... model of a ship: clearly it is a Hurtigrute, possibly the Stralsund-class....

                Don't know why it has taken me so long to say how charming and delightful I thought that photo was

                Here is a photo of a model of Finmarken (1912)
                displayed in todays Finnmarken:

                      From the Nordlys thread, here are some additional images of the former Nordly: a model located in the current ship's Cafe:









                      From this image, it looks like this is a really old model which originally sported the BDS funnel livery:

                        Coastal steamer models of Hurtigruten

                        In addition to the models made by Hobbyruten in the below thread, I came across a couple more.

                        http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...read.php?t=150

                        The two below models, I bought in a most unusual store (for such items) in Bodø called BRAVO.... they sell pretty much everything for camping, and fishing and lots of other nifty things needed and not so needed.

                        There were no indication on their boxes as to whom had made these models and they only had two ships, the Finnmarken and the Trollfjord. The price for each was 299 Norwegian Kroner.

                        Naturally, I just had to have both.

                          Apparently, the company making these models is called Edda Design. On their official website, I can't find any information about them though...

                              I think it would be difficult to find anybody to man that open bridge today, not to mention sailing by magnetic compass, a course book and stopwatch as the only aids to navigation, even in near zero visibility.
