1/48 Viking Longboat (Revell)
A timely subject if you're watching Vikings on History Channel.
This Revell kit seems to be a pretty accurate representation of the Gokstad
ship. I scratched the mast, yard & spars from wooden dowels using
a screw gun & sandpaper. Wood effects were achieved with various enamel
& acrylic model paints... sure wish I'd known about artist's oils then.
Sorry only a couple of pics.... don't have many on the 'puter.
