Luis Alvarez Thanks! I'm almost done with all the shields and going for the dragon head!

Sergej I Where will you get the vikings for that?
9. July at 06:06:12
Luis Alvarez Well, no Vikings in sight right now. No 1:50 figures are available. The only way right now is either heavily modify existing 1:50 scale figures or sculpt some by myself....
9. July at 15:18:42
Sergej I Check D&D minis, some dwarves might qualify :D
9. July at 15:22:28
Luis Alvarez D&D minis.... I'll look into it. Thank you Sergej!

Nathan Dempsey Common gaming figures in 28mm are about 1:56 scale. That may be as close as you can get for ready made figures.

Great build so far!

Luis Alvarez Thanks Nathan!

Erik De Smet The kit looks as weird as the plane itself
9. July at 15:06:54
Luis Alvarez Yes indeed, it is an awful kit. Terrible casting! Very challenging....right now I'm figuring how to balance it as the tail is very heavy and the nose is all transparent. Probably I'll glue it to a flat base because even an all- metal cockpit floor is not doing the trick. Besides, the resin is very brittle an if I go too heave probably the nose undercarriage will bend or brake.

Luis Alvarez Thank you guys! I'm really learning a lot and with your help and enthusiasm I keep myself motivated. I'm finishing the shields and will start painting the dragon head. The sail is a big challenge as I don't know how to make them yet. Then the rigging and ...voila!

Luis Alvarez Thanks Augie! I'm battling the oars now. I just can't get a reference for the right oar length!
28. December 2018 at 18:47:43
Augie 5 to 6 meters was the average IIRC for oar length
28. December 2018 at 19:07:22

6. March at 23:55:42
Luis Alvarez Jaja! Yes...! Now I'm trying to figure out the sail. As I don't know how to sew, my attempts have been really a disappointment...... In the meantime I keep moving with the shields...the 28 of them. Very repetitive work as the tracks of a tank!

Christian Skottun I live near by the excavation site of the Gogstad ship, the one you have the photo of, and I know it very well. I am here to help if you need any first hand research. Good luck!
21. July 2018 at 09:03:26
Luis Alvarez Thank you guys! This is my first all-wood ship build and is taking a lot of time to cut and glue all those planks. I'll upload a few pictures of my current work, but a couple of doubts come in mind. 1) A viking ship was manned by a single community and thus all the side shields wore the same pattern/color? and 2) Did the sails and the head at the stem had colors?
10. October 2018 at 00:29:14
Gordon Sørensen Looking forward to following your progress, Luis! I went to the Viking Museum in Roskilde a few years ago, and they had quite a few remains of old ships, as well as a replica. Very interesting and highly recommended if you are ever in the area!
10. October 2018 at 11:55:43
Holger Kranich I´m in! Till Valhall! ;)
10. October 2018 at 12:53:41
Christian Skottun All the shields had the same pattern and colors. The research in the Gogstad ship indicates that they where yellow and black. The stem of this ship propably did not have colors, for the sail we don't know
10. October 2018 at 21:30:10
Christian Skottun If you Google Saga Oseberg you will find an exact copy of the Oseberg Ship, this is propably the most exact copy of a Viking ship and they use a sail in natural whool color, and I guess that is based on research on the real ship, concerning the shields they should be every other black and yellow
10. October 2018 at 21:35:02
Luis Alvarez Thanks for the support. Now I'm going through all the planks for the deck. Measure, cut and paste once and again....then I'll tackle the superstructure and rails. I guess that the planks on the deck had a random pattern and length, right? However, for the sake of simplicity I decided a uniform pattern/sizes.
11. October 2018 at 21:25:47
Luis Alvarez Black and yellow it is...I found an article (cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/7/t/155395.aspx) that describes exactly that pattern. Nevertheless, I doubt the sails were checkered yellow and black. I agree they were natural wool.
11. October 2018 at 21:42:39
Luis Alvarez Well, I'm stuck with the oars. I made a few of them according to the kit's instructions. However, they look too short to me. The kit refers to four sizes! My references show a uniform oar size, but is hard to establish a size. Any help?
