Shadow of NORGE
The 3D Model

The 3D Model

Here you can find a 1 to 1 scaled 3D model of NORGE, created within the project Shadow Of Norge, that aims to reflect in appearance and dimensions the original airship. It was created using the software 3DStudio Max, a software for 3D Modeling and Animation. The reconstruction is based on original drawings from Umberto Nobile and the airship was recreated, following the individual lines of these drawings. When references to the drawings were not sufficient we relied on photographs and films from that time. The model was then geolocalized inside the Application ShadowOfNorge in some symbolic places the Norge overflew during its expedition and viewable through augmented reality technology.
