Product Description
Parts in "Strong & Flexible Polished" material to complete the model of the a coastal transport vessel of the GDR Nordstern series in 1:160 scale:
  • superstructure
  • both hatches

To complete a coaster, three different sets of 3D prints are needed:
  • Coaster 840, Hull and decks
  • Coaster 840, Superstructure and Hatches (this set)
  • Coaster 840, Details

If you want to build only a static model (no radio control function). With the parts, you can either build a static model or a working model that is controlled via radio control (RC). For an RC model, you need additional components (not available through Shapeways). Building an RC model requires the advanced skills and experience to complete the model.

During the years 1960 until 1963,  26 units of the coastal transport vessels of the "Serie Nordstern", also referred to as "Kümo 840" (see the article in Wikipedia, unfortunately, only available in German currently) were built by Peene Werft, a major shipyard in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR). As a successor to the earlier Kümo 500, they were larger and had a larger transport capacity. All units were named after stars in the Northern hemisphere and after towns and villages in the former GDR.Technical data of the original:
  length:      59.4 m
  width:         9.8 m
  propulsion: 1 diesel engine of 405 kW
  capacity:     max. 760 tons in two loading bays

The model is designed in 1:160 scale. It is set up to be built as a functional model with radio control. However, it can also be built as a static model for display. In addition to the propulsion system and steering, both cranes can be made operational.
