Billings Models Roar Ege Viking Ship Wooden Ship Kit
Brand: Billings Models
Model Number: B703
The Billing Boats 1/25 Roar Ege Viking Ship wooden ship model measures 57cm long, 39cm high and 14cm wide. This wooden boat kit is highly realistic with many fine details.
This Viking ship, dating from about 1000 A.D. was found in 1957 in the bay at Roskilde in Denmark. The wreck was salvaged in 1962, and after a thorough preservation it was possible to carry out a reconstruction of the vessel. Today the ship is on display at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde.
This kit features plank on frame construction, laser cut plywood keel and frame components, wooden superstructure and decks, hull and deck fittings in brass and/or plastic, mast and spars and rigging cord in various sizes. It includes full-size plan sheets and an instruction manual with English text.

Preliminary Inspection of Roar Ege Kit
The kit arrived in good shape, quite happy with the service I recieved from Wonderland Models. Postage to Australia is a bit expensive though. Generally the kit looks good, instructions are in English and seem sufficently detailed. Two things I think could be improved - the model stand is plastic (I'll be making my own to replace it), and the planking is plywood.
