    HNoMS Thor Heyerdahl F314 - photo request.

    Good moring Gents,

    I would ask You for help in my project.

    My hobby is paper-models designing and building - currently I'm working on HNoMS Thor Heyerdahl F314, (Nansen class, scale 1:200.)

    See this link:

    http://www.kartonwork.pl/forum/viewt...=13493&start=0

    I'm stuck with lack of detailed drawings, blueprints, and photos, showing details of main deck and superstructures.

    My question to You is: is there anybody who can help me and provide pictures of areas marked with red arrows?:




    To be specified, I would like to see:

    - superstructure
    - base of main mast,
    - midships
    - funnel in the midships and helo-hangar roof,
    - helo-hangar roof details incl life-rafts
    - RHIBs with cranes (port and starboard)
    - AN/SPG62 target illuminators (FCRs)
    - RBS 15 containers (if there are any mounted on any ship Nansen class)

    Of course, I'm interested only in unclassified data.

    I will appreciate any help

    Thanks in advance.

    Harp.

    I don't really have much info to share, but its going to be extremely difficult trying to figure out where the (Swedish) RBS-15 missiles go, since the Nansen class will be armed with the Norwegian NSM missile...

              If you do a Google Image search for "fregatt nansen" (frigate nansen), you'll get quite a few hits.

                  Got about 200 pics. Without them, designing Nansen would be impossible. But I'm asking for more detailed pics. As You know (or maybe not), details are the key factor in scale modeling.

                    How to contac PIO? Is there any Nansen class ship homepage (like US Ships homepages?).

                    Sorry for that silly questions, but I do not speak norwegian, so searching the web is strongly limited (in this case)

                      The problem may be, even if you ask for unclassified pictures, some of those details might be classified, and should not be supplied by milforum readers. If you cannot find more details in press pictures, I think your best bet might be to contact Norwegian military authorities directly.

                      Some addresses can be found here:

                      Good luck!

                          Few exterior details of the ship are actually classified. During routine "open ship" for civilians of various nationalities, they are allowed to take pictures of anything they want as long as its not from the inside itself.

                          I'm not exactly sure what you need, Harpooner, considering you can see most of the details you are asking for in all the pictures you can find online.

                          Excellent pictures like this (all from open sources) gives away most of the details:




                          From these pictures you can actually count the number of visible liferafts: 2 on each side behind of the bridge area, 3 on each side on the hangar roof, and 1 on each side on the forward part of the helodeck.

                          From this profile you can easily see where the NSM missilelauncher are to be mounted. One quadpack on each side behind the main radarmast.


                          This openly available informative film from a Norwegian documentary series (Schrödingers Katt) shows quite alot of the interior, including the classified CIC:
                          http://www1.nrk.no/nett-tv/klipp/205230

                          I would very much like to see the final product when you are finished. She looks beautiful allready!

                            During routine "open ship" for civilians of various nationalities,
                            they are allowed to take pictures of anything they want
                            That is why I have expected some "walk around" photo session over WWW.
                            Thanks for Your support, description of life-rafts locations is what I need.

                            I have another few questions:

                            - who is the RHIBs manufacturer?
                            - are the AN/SPG62s exactly the same type, as on Ticonderoga/Burke class ships? If not, what are the differencies (i.e. mounts?) I can not find any picture showing side silhouette(classified?).
                            - who is the RHIBs cranes manufacturer, or what types are they?
                            - funny question but important to me: what is the number of external ladders (and their location)? At least, one is exactly below aft AN/SPG62...

                            Best regards:

                            Harp.


                            P.S.
                            Of course, when Nansen project will be finished, I will inform You.
                            For sure, she will be available for paper-modeling market.

                              According to this link, they are equipped with a "Maritime Partner Sjøbjørn 25 Mk II". You can see a silhoutte of it on this production page. Its the same as these pictures from the Coast Guard, except that they are painted in naval grey.



                              - are the AN/SPG62s exactly the same type, as on Ticonderoga/Burke class ships? If not, what are the differencies (i.e. mounts?) I can not find any picture showing side silhouette(classified?).
                              According to this PDF-document, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KDA) producted the mount for the directors called "integraded director group". There is a small picture in the document itself, and maybe this high-res picture is of some help?


                              - who is the RHIBs cranes manufacturer, or what types are they?
                              Don't know. As you can see from pictures there are different cranes on each side.

                              - funny question but important to me: what is the number of external ladders (and their location)? At least, one is exactly below aft AN/SPG62...
                              Look at pictures, and start counting!

                              Do you produce paper-model sets for interested buyers?


                              Oh, and maybe this google translation of a Norwegian article regarding HNoMS Thor Heyerdahls sibling, the HNoMS Helge Ingstad, is of interest to you?

                                    Generally, I don't. But, if some publisher is interested in releasing my projects, I design a paper-model on request. I'm freelancer.


                                    Thanks for your help with AN/SPG62, fortunately my design is correct.

                                      think it is mine, as I took pics from that position that day that I uploaded here somewhere.

                                          Thank you very much for sharing, Harpooner. So far the hull looks quite impressive, and I can only imagine how the final result will look like. Just let me know if you need any further reference material.

                                          I don't know anything about paper modeling, but would it be possible to order an copy of your finished product? If you have all the different parts already cut out, would it be too hard to assemble one by myself?

                                            When F314 will be prepared for public release (How-To guide, drawings, part numbering etc.) I can send You printed sheets, ready to cut&glue.

                                            If you have all the different parts already cut out, would it be too hard to assemble one by myself?
                                            Although Nansen class characterise with rather simple silhouette, this paper model seems to be more difficult than the others designed by me (my "target group" is "beginners and average" paper ship modelers). The reason is, that paper is not a suitable material for relatively big flat surfaces. If You don't have any experience with paper modeling, I can not guarantee that You will be able to build this model, even with extensive how-to guide (my releases are available mainly on US market, so How-To guides are to be more than very clear ) ). But You can always try! There are a number of paper-modeling forums and resources around the WWW (i.e. papermodelers.com), people of this community are always helpful and ready to share their knowledge and experience.

                                            And this kind of hobby, can be a good solution for looong polar nights, I think

                                              Ladies and Gents,


                                              let me announce the successful finish of F314 KNM Thor Heyerdahl paper build, scale 1/200.





                                              Thank You for Your co-op and all good words!

                                              Kind regards and Merry Xmas!

                                              Harp.

                                                Harpoon, you just made my day. This is nothing short of immensely impressive! Considering that this is an paper model designed from the ground up, I can't even describe how impressed I am.

                                                Now, what do I have to do to get an exact copy of this model in my own living room? I'm guessing it would be impossible for me to buy the design and assemble it myself, and equally impossible for you to just sell me a finished model and mail it to me...?

                                                  To say it's impressive doesn't quite cut it.

                                                        I'm affraid, there's no way of safe delivery the finished model.
                                                        But, I suspect that You are in navy service. So, find out if any HNoM ship is going to take participation in BALTOPS (or DANEX) and visit Poland (Gdynia Naval Base). Jump on the board, send me a message - and done!

                                                          Great work Harpooner! Just one small detail. There seems to be one additional Mk41-cell in front of the bridge! It would of course be great to double the rather small weaponsload on the Nansens.
