  1. Hi everyone, This is my first try at building a wooden ship from a kit. I have been slowly working on it since the first of the year. I have been looking at the build logs of Von Kossa and Jack Panzeca. They have done such a nice job and I can only hope to come close to their work.
  2. Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted in these forums, but I'm starting my first wooden ship model so I figured it was time to start a build log thread. For this first project, I decided to build the Oseberg Viking longship. So far the best plans I've found are here: http://oseberg.narod.ru/pages/Oseberg_Schiff_Spiegazioni_Pag_01.htm If anyone knows of any other publicly accessible plans that are better, I'd love to hear about them. This appears to be from a kit model but I think that might make it easier for a first build.
  3. First model ship kit build: First build log on MSW. Be still my beating heart! The Kit: Billings large model of the Oseberg Ship (1/25). This turned out to be Billings part number 720 and has plywood laser-cut shields, and laser-scored scrollwork in ply (More on the laser and ply later as the build commences) The kit was a Christmas present (2018) from my lovely Admiral, and was ordered and obtained from our local model boat shop Float-a-Boat. It took about 6 months to arrive but this was not a worry, as we both had plenty to do since we had just moved house. By
  4. Good evening all, This is my first build log and first model build in close to 30 years. When I bought the Oseberg I bought it with all intentions of building it as the museum ship. Best laid plans right. I'm going to be cremated when it's time. I thought hmmmm... a Viking funeral, (yes I know there really weren't any ship burnings but what the heck). I also bought the Billing since it didn't NOT have the dragon head & tail, again the best laid plans. I actually bought and started the model in August. I read in another post that it isn't bad taste to start a build log as long as th
  5. Greetings Everyone, This is my first build log and I missed the ritual box opening. I was already putting things together before I realized I should have photographed it first. The plans and directions are pretty sparse but it is a fairly straight forward ship. The keel had a slight bow in it but I used a little warm water and bent it a little past straight and it dried nice and flat. This is the kit version with the plywood scrollwork and shields. The keel and bulk heads leave a lot of exposed plywood edges and my plan is to cover them with oak veneer. The deck planking is Obechi wh
  6. I have just received my Oseberg purchased on ebay from from rc-multistore_de. Impressed by the very fast delivery to the UK from Germany. I do not plan to cover every step of the construction which has been done so eloquently by others including Jack and Kossa. However I will describe any variations as I make them. Firstly I noticed a tiny sketch in the instruction book showing that the stem and stern keel pieces #10a and #10b need to be faired. As described by Jack these pieces will be removed and replaced by the scroll pieces so they will not be faired. Instead I
  7. Since other members have posted extensive build reports of this boat kit I will focus primarily on the choices I have made. The main issue of the kit is the scroll parts for the bow and stern which are far too thick. This is the solution I opted for : Some modifications to turn the model into a working rc one : I have also added some 1/24 figures (I will order or make some more in the future): I have finally finished the shields and now I'm going to tackl
  8. Hi! This will be a build log about my ongoing project to build a scale 1:25 wooden version of the Oseberg Ship. I will try to reconstruct this build log after the crash.
  9. So, as I said, I´ll begin some new projects while still building the Chinese Junk. This is the first of two, the Osberg by Amati. Before any sawdust comes through, I have to thank my friend Jack Panzeca for his gift. Yep, he was a sweety and sent me this kit he wouldn´t build for he already was building the Billing´s Oseberg - As I was always telling how nice it was and let it clear I would build one if I had, Jack surprised me with offering this one. Jack, here I am, building the ship - Thank you. A review of the box - In comparison to the other 2 ships I built till no
  10. Ahoy shipmates (and all that blarney!) I am back!!! After a pause and change of model I have returned to the watery kind. I got the Amati Oseberg on ebay at a reasonable price most of which was probably accounted for by the pretty box! The Viking boats required surprisingly little wood which is exactly what Amati provide. There are instructions dubiously translated into English, a good sheet of 1/1 plans, a little box of bits and pieces. Lots of small dowel to make oars with, a wee bit of deck planking veneer and some well cut laser pieces including the pre-shaped strakes, the false ke
  11. Hi everyone !! I'm really excited to be starting this today, though I'm really nervous too lol. If my ship turns out even a tiny bit as good as Jack Panzeca's or Von_Kossa's or any of the others here for that matter then I'll be happy! This will be my first model ship build, although I do have a small background in architectual modeling and of course like many of us here I built plastic models and balsa planes as a kid. I've always had a interest in wooden ship models and I love viking and viking longships so the Oseberg was the logical start for me. I bought this kit about five y
