Norge/Italia Airship Mast Free Paper Model DownloadThis paper model is a Norge/Italia Airship Mast, created by PaperShipWright, and the scale is in 1:250.

The successful expedition to cross the North Pole using the airship Norge in 1926 led by Raold Amundsen, Lincoln Ellsworth and Umberto Nobile was well-planned and executed. Part of the infrastructure built was three identical airship masts - one at King’s Bay in Spitzbergen at the expedition’s base and two others to act as way-points for the airship transfer flight from Italy.

The steel masts were designed by Italian engineers and each was 35m high with a weight of 14 tons.

The ill-fated expedition led by Nobile using the airship Italia in 1928 re-used the masts and base at King’s Bay. The masts at Vadso and King’s Bay are still standing but the mast at Ekeberg was demolished during WWII. ~ via Papershipwright
