Viking Ocean Cruise ship models

Recommended Posts

I’m currently enjoying a cruise aboard Viking Orion, in New Zealand, heading for Australia in a couple of days. Gathering some good info for what I think will be my next scratch build, HMS ENDEAVOR. 

Viking ( a Norwegian Cruise line) really promotes their Scandinavian heritage. Along with an abundant supply of really good Aquavit on board, there is a display of examples of some Viking ship and historical artifacts ( replicas) and artwork, all very enlightening. Unfortunately, the model of the Viking ship is really not very good. The description says ships were clinker-built (true) but the model isn’t, and those oars ... wow, are they to any scale?.  The ship is shown under sail, but since people expect a Viking ship to have oars, I guess some marketing person just added some. Disappointing. 
Hope the pic goes thru ... limited bandwidth aboard ship. 


The model of the cruise ship is much better.

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.
