Scratch built card Viking Longship - for my son
« on: February 15, 2015, 07:05:54 PM »
Hi all,
some images of a scratch built card Viking Longship my yougest son asked me to make for him after he saw me working on some of War Artisan's card Napoleonic ship kits. All painted card except for the sail which was printed on my inkjet.

He seemed pleased despite the fact I forgot to add a rudder!
