Viking longship GOKSTAD by Liberto - Finished

Recommended Posts

Hola amigos, soy Liberto y estoy recién incorporado a este fabuloso Foro, gracias por vuestra acogida.

La gran mayoría  tenemos alguna referencia de esta famosa y emblemática Nave, sabemos que toma nombre del lugar donde fue encontrada por Nicolay Nicolays en la granja Gokstad en Sande Fjord en Noruega en 1880, tenia una eslora de 24 metros y una manga de 5,50metros  aprox.

Como la nave de Oseberg esta construida de roble, con 16 tablas por banda y se calcula que totalmente  pertrechada podía haber pesado unas 20 toneladas. El modelo que yo presento es algo mas pequeño, tendrá una eslora de 60cm. y una manga de 14 cm. lo que supone comparándola con el modelo real, que estoy trabajando a escala de 1/40 aprox.

La madera que voy a utilizar casi en su totalidad es boj americano, esta madera es muy flexible y se trabaja y responde muy bien, y una vez se consigue su color natura, bien sea por medio de barnices o aceites naturales, tiene gran parecido con el roble, pero con la beta casi inapreciable, la tabla (traca)  15 será de caoba cubana y la 16 junto con la tapa de regala es de peral.

Saludos Liberto

unfortunately, my written Spanish is rather meagre, but I can read it reasonably well :)  Interesting project and good workmanship !


I also like the miniature desk-top belt-sander you fashioned from the Proxxon hand-held belt-sander. I have been thinking of a similar project.

Bueno amigos, con estas imágenes que os paso a continuación doy por terminado este entretenido proyecto de la Nave Vikinga de Gokstad, han sido 14 meses los que he empleado en su constricción.

Espero que paséis un rato entretenido, y que de alguna manera pueda servir de ayuda para los jóvenes que se inician en este Noble Arte del Modelismo Naval.

Amigos gracias, Saludos  Liberto

Hello friends, Wefalck, Steven, Nils, thanks for the kindness of your comments on my work, I'm glad that you like it.
On the comment of our friend Wefalck, here you can see how the nails ensured placed to unite the strakes.  

Moderator Chris Coyle, understood the message. Thanks to all Liberto

Liberto, I know, how it is done in 1:1 scale (thanks for the interesting video, btw - but keep in mind that the Vikings didn't have bandsaws and electric hoists :) ), but wondered how you did it on the model. Are the nails really clenched/roved, or did you 'cheat', i.e. just cut them above the copper disc ?

Hello friends, Nils , Wefalck , my thanks also to the companions who quietly go by leaving their generous greeting.
 Wefalch on the placement of the pins ( pins in my model 1/40 ) are 0.6 m / my head once lowered is 1m / m , the drill that I do in the strakes is 0.5m / m and this way comes very justado , and then with the help of a clamp placed the copper disc 1.1x 0.3m / m approx . then I press to get to the bottom being fairly rigid , only the pin is cut without reaching the copper disc
Step process image I followed on my ship , and as you can see is quite similar to that employed builders of the Viking ship that accompanies the video.
Friends and continue , greetings Liberto

Hello friends, I pass some pictures of the process to manufacture the hardware of my ship Viking shields .

greetings Liberto


Hi Liberto,


I just had to have a second look at that ingenious set of punch / shaping tool set ( self centering convex pin included) you made for the shields metal fittings. Thanks for sharing this brilliant idea    ;)   :)
