Viking Gokstad by captgino - FINISHED - Artesania Latina - 1/75

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am sorry but I am going to start this build log with a ship already 1/2 completed. The hull was completed and modified the original direction to attempt to do a 'clinker-built' hull.

The results are interesting but I already know that I would do it a different way in a future attempt. Mistakes were made (a few of them) :)


My original intention was not to have a build log but like everything in life things change. This idea was to have a quick weekend build for learning and fun. It is all that just not quick (hahaha) ;)


Here is the ship as it is today.


The box.

Great job! Your ship is looking awesome :)!

Thank you for your kind comments! I am trying to do my best to do some extra work and details on this ship. I think this is a fun build and adding a few details here and there really make a difference.

Hi there Elijah. The other ship is my Flyer. I have a build log for it as well. I am taking a break from it to allow the completion of the Viking.

I have to sew sails and furling them. A bit nervous about it :)

Tonight, I made a stand For the drakkar. I did not like whether they provided with the kit . I attached the sail and prepare Or installed almost all rigging,

Nextstep will be to attach the last 6 Oars, Fix the Sail and maybe some light weathering.

For now, it will be in my office. :)

So happy to be done and already thinking about my next projects: finish the Flyer and determining the next build.

2 options:

- cross section of the Victory

- Fair American

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
