You showed these to me on Chat and I really liked them. The ship is very nice and the cart would be worth stealling. Direstions maybe?

I gotta post my Viking ships! I like your's though very much. The high prows are very nice.

Had this been an actuall pick, you would have been directed to go to the appropriate site or book. This has been a test of the Obligatory nit-pick system.

I love the cart! Very simple but effective design!

The Viking ship is great too, but you might want to turn the guys around so they ship can move forwards ;)

Vikings. Love it. This would make a great official line for Lego to revive Castle, after the Power Ranger's embaressment. I like the cloth sail. Only thing missing are the horned helmets, which aren't really an option if you are going with unaltered lego.

That's great, I've got a competitor :lol:

Did you know the sails actually weren't really vertically striped but chequered? But IMO that kind of historical correctness is beyond the necessity of a Lego MOC :)

I really like the SNIR'ed bars on the cart, good job, hope to see more Viking mocs :!: :D

Hi all,

Thanks for your great replies, I glad you enjoyed them and you can go had and do them :D
I won't give instructions though (at least not at this stage).

Ok, thanks for the info, always love to learn new stuff :lol:

hehe, I know but for "picture only case" I think it looks better like this

Actually the entire idea was to create some Vikings models (like 5-7) in sets scale that LEGO can easily copy. Hopefully I'll make some more later on. Since I don't do custom stuff I won't glue horns though.

hehe, actually I really saw your MOCs only after I made mines and thats really the reason I didn't published mine for a little while. I love the work you did on Vikings too, but I'm building more in a set size so those stuff can be actually sets (if and when...)

I really didn't know that, but my Vikings are classic, we stick to what is tradition to think :lol:

Yes, I really want to continue the viking idea but it will take a while...

Thanks again

The cart is nice but I love the ship. It definately has the feel of one of the official sets. I hope your plan to inspire the new line works out.

As a set scale MOC, Viking ship is almost perfect. I am not a boat builder, the elegance of the lines escapes me, but your boat is very reminicent of some of the boat sets we used to get back in the good old days. I could easily have seen this released back in the mid-late 80's. As a Viking ship, it works very well to convey the design and shape of those ships. If it had been made by TLC, they probably would have littered it with multi-colored bricks, but that is TLC for you. One little tiny nitpick: I don't like the use of the KKI torso though, it seems too regal to be part of a Viking MOC.

I don't know if the cart says Viking to me, but it is a very nice cart. :D

After a long absence, I have returned. I can't wait to start building again.
