Scratch built Viking Longship

I don't often get requests but my youngest son saw me working on some card Sail ships and asked me if I could make him a Viking Longship.
Here is the result, it took me about 3-4 hours and I used the same techniques as I've used to make the card War Artisan kits. The scale is unknown but the base is about 115mm long.

After I finished, I realised I had completely forgot the rudder but my son wasn't bothered. The sail was a downloaded file to which I added a Thor motif. The rest is painted card, a nylon coated jewellery wire and some coffee stirrers for masts.
