Got the SMER drakkar in the mail today.



A little bit of converting (dragon prow and waterline), and it should  be ready for some paint and action!
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

Another step towards an invasion of Britain is taken...



The water-line has to be grinded/sanded, and I may have to do it by hand, as I don't own a proper tool for that purpose...  :-[

Doesn't the Dremel have a grinding disc/piece?

Yes, that's the one I used to cut the keel area away - but I want to get the waterline completely level, as I do not want to base the ship.

Are you keeping the rather over the top dragon head?

Nope. Definitely has to go. I consider making one that can be taken down, as suggested by Cornwell for signalling 'we come in peace' (yeah, right  ::)  ).

Did manage to make the 'straps' or 'loops' for the axes on these two. Yes, the left one should have been done further down the axe handle. Will have to do as is, though, as I don't feel like pushing more putty today.

I have some Playmobil viking rowboats that I converted to small longships. When I needed figure heads I used cheap plastic dinosaurs, and other creatures.

Nice idea!

What's the bigger one?

Shape-wise they could also be used as Knarrs or Byrdings.

The big one is a Noah's Ark cut down to waterline. It is the knarr in the fleet.
