Viking Longhouse

I had been wanting to make a Viking Longhouse for a far while now. Last month I finally made a start.

Once I had begun I found that the enthusiasm took over. In the end it took me just over  a week to make and paint.

Made from balsa wood sticks carved to shape and then glued over a MDF former. The roof is from a hairy material used by plumbers to lag hot water pipes.






Vikings ready to defend their longhouse.

  1. The magnificent longhouse implementation
    I like it.

    Otherwise, what are this 28 mm.
    Is it some american style, or some else...
    Is it near 1/65 scale

  3. Is it the roof, flax or tows...
    If is, this is old and very good (pipeline) isolation method,
    without asbestos shells...

  10. That's a bloody brilliant long house Rodger! Really love the amount of work you put into it. You even included an opening in the roof for the smoke to dissipate.
