The RRS Discovery is the expedition ship with which Robert Falcon Scott undertook his expeditions to the Antarctic. RRS stands for Royal Research Ship.

It was launched in Dundee on 21 March 1901 and was specially developed for Antarctic research missions. Special attention was paid to a solid outer shell in the form of several layers of exceptionally hard wood planking, which would withstand the dangers of ice floes and freezing waters. A wind turbine with an electric generator could be installed on the foredeck.

Description

The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “RRS Discovery”

This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.

Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.

The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.

Our models are strictly tested for quality, so that we can offer you a clean product. The satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority. All models are completely assembled upon shipping.
