Still not pirate ships, as such, but some of them could be handy for a bit of raiding.

 

The models resemble five ships from just after 1000 A. D. Viking-age in Scandinavia.

They are minifig-scale or 1:40’ish.

The largest model, Skuldelev 2, will have the dimensions Length: 80 cm, Height: 40 cm (with stand), Width: 10,5 cm

The smallest model, Skuldelev 6, will have the dimensions Length: 29 cm, Height: 21,5 cm (with stand), Width: 7 cm

 

There is approx. 4900 bricks in the models combined.

With 2100 going to Skuldelev 2, 1100 to skuldelev 1 and 450-700 bricks for each of the other ships.

 

The main source of reference is the The viking Ship Museum: Vikingeskibsmuseet i Roskilde

The focus of the museum is a permanent exhibition of the five original Viking ships excavated nearby in 1962.

The line drawings and data found at the museum is the basis for the models and the replicas Ottar, The Sea Stallion from Glendalough, Roar Ege, Helge Ask and Kraka Fyr are invaluable source material for the colors and final look.

Now that are some really nice ships I could build with my limited brick supply ;-)

Thanks

They are quite small, even though the Skuldelev 2 is very long.

The challenge here was to make get something of the individual ships while sticking to the confines of the dimensions from the archeological data.

I also imagine building them along with something else. Maybe someone can use them in a layout.
