Amati’s Drakkar Viking Ship, by the South Bay Model Shipwrights

At a recent meeting, member of the South Bay Model Shipwrights club brought out their model of the Drakkar Viking Ship. The model was a kind of group build by several club members who teamed up to complete this model kit from Amati.

The model is approximately 1/50 scale, features laser-cut lap-strake planking, and measures a little over 17″ long.

The model was going through a few finishing touches, so it was displayed here without oars. A case is being prepared, after which the group will display the model at various events, like the upcoming IPMS event in San Jose.  The plan with then be to display this beautiful model at the retail shop of Ages of Sail in San Lorenzo, which provided the kit.
