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.
