Viking Ship

I made some progress on the Viking Longship over the weekend. Having removed the plastic deck, I decided to get rid of most of it and only keep the centre bit to support the mast.

Using some polystyrene and foam card, I built up the deck to a good model height and then decked it all out with balsa.

Once some fiddly detail was added around the bow and stern (that’s the front and back to all you land lubbers), the thing is ready for painting.

I still have to make the mast this week, but that can wait.
