JB’s Artesania Latina’s 1/75 Viking Ship

This is a replica of one of the famous 10th century Viking longboats in Gokstad, which were manned by oars and propelled by sail. This kit includes laser cut wooden parts to build the hull, a pre-sewn sail, wooden and metal fittings as well as a DVD with complete and easy to follow step-by-step building instructions.

I’m a big history nut and few topics are as fascinating as the Northmen, so this model seemed like the perfect introduction to wooden model making. Let’s hope I don’t make a mess of it.
