Hi!
New to this site and somewhat new to model shipbuilding. I am very interested in trying my hand at scratch building a Viking longboat (a Skeide or Drakkar). Been wanting to start on this build for some time now but just saw the "Draken Harald Hårfagre" at Mystic Seaport and now want to get started as soon as the snow starts blowing here in PA. Wondering if anyone has a source for good plans or a source of info for anything useful. I remember a series of articles a year or so back about a scratch build longboat in SOS but my wife through them out in one of her "cleaning frenzies" before I could put them into my files.

Thanks in advance for any help that you can give me!!

Hi

There are plenty of companies that sell plans.

Cornwell Model ships.

Modeler central.

A member is not allowed to give away a copy of a plan on this SOS. That could be illegal.
