    I've looked at this kit myself, unfortunately there's not enough pennies in the piggy bank at the moment and not feeling that confident on rigging. Hey ho, I can dream and follow someone else with their build ๐Ÿ˜

    Mornin' Trev,
    It's not you that's in error. It's Occre!
    Dunno where they got the idea she was built as a Frigate.
    Uncle Wiki has a very different opinion.

    "The ship was launched on 17 December 1912[3] and was initially christened Polaris after the North Star.[4] She was 144 ft (44 m) long, with a 25 ft (7.6 m) beam,[5] and measured 350 tons gross.[6] Her original purpose was to provide luxurious accommodation for small tourist and hunting parties in the Arctic as an ice-capable steam yacht.[7] As launched she had 10 passenger cabins, a spacious dining saloon and galley (with accommodation for two cooks), a smoking room, a darkroom to allow passengers to develop photographs, electric lighting and even a small bathroom."
    Hardly a description of a ship equipped for war!๐Ÿ˜‰
    She was built as a barquentine or schooner barque. Shackleton made many alterations to the internal layout but the ship was built with steam power from the get go - not converted.
    I agree, a fine looking model 'Expert grade'?๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Greetings Mates,
    Is anyone thinking of building the OcCre Endurance,
    that Sir Ernest Shackleton and crew used to cross the Antarctic
    In 1914?
    She looks amazing She was converted to a three masted Brigantine with Steam Power.
    (Doug, Please correct me if I am in error)
    I would love to build her, but I have two vessels on the ways,
    one in plan stage and two ready to be built.
    I hope someone takes the task in hand ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž
    She looks like she is only for display, but i am with JB, where there is a will there is a way ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
