Recently, some photos were posted in the builder’s gallery of the Nautical Research Guild’s Model Ship World forum. The model caught our attention as it was a perfectly done model built from Billing Boats’ Roar Ege Viking Ship kit.
The model was built by Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, who goes by his screen name kronvold on Model Ship World. If you look closely at the photos, this is a perfect example of how it’s done, though Jens may humbly disagree.
Of course, each person adds his or her own style to a build, but this is a very clean build, and it shows off the details of the model really well.
We hope this provides some inspiration to our readers. We couldn’t help but post a lot of photos of this model, but there are more in Jens’s album on MSW. They are also higher resolution than we typically post here, so you might want to check them out: https://modelshipworld.com/gallery/album/2288-roar-ege-billing-boats/
If you have any interest in building this model yourself, it is in stock at Ages of Sail and selling for $132. Check it out here: https://www.agesofsail.com/ecommerce/roar-ege-viking-ship—billing-boats-bb703.html
