The Scotia and the Scottish Antarctic expedition in 1902- 1904


The expedition ship was built in 1872 as Norwegian whaler Hekla. In 1902 she was bought by William Speirs Bruce, renamed Scotia and refitted for use in the 1902 - 1904 Scottish National Antarctic Expedition. The voyage succeeded in a full program of exploration and scientific work, including setting up the first manned Antarctic meteorological station.

Later on the ship served an whaler until 1913 and then as a weather ship off Newfoundland. During World War I she was requisitioned as a freighter and sank 1916 after catching fire.

There is more information on Scotia, including several photographs of the expedition.


The Scotia model, photos, description and dimensions

 

The model was built by a very experienced model maker. There are more pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

This model of the Scotia is a beautiful detailed piece of work, a masterpiece. The ship model was built with the sails tightly furled to allow a clear view on the many details shown in rigging, deck and equipment.

The ship model is 1 : 67 scale. Length is 82 cm, width 22 cm, height 55 cm.

There is a display case for the model made of birch wood and (rather poor, high reflection) acrylic glass which may be used as protection when picking up the model with your car. The display case will not be shipped on air cargo. The case is 89 cm long, 28 cm wide, 58 cm high.

The model looks best when set without a display case.
