Oseberg ship by NorthCoastDesigns - Billing Boats - Scale 1:25, 800 A.D (First wooden ship build)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone !!  :piratebo5:

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 years ago however life kept me from having the time or place to start building until now. I've spent the last several days reading lots of build logs for this ship and now its time for me to start though I'll need lots of advice tips and help I'm sure.  :piratetongueor4:


I also want to mention that like Jack P. and von_Kossa I plan on remaking lots of the parts myself and covering all the plywood edges in oak veneer. (I may also do an oak deck like Jack P.) 


Ok here we go the unboxing pics!!!
