Billing Boats "Mini" Oseberg
This is a mini replica of our 1:25 scale Oseberg. Wooden hull, Beginner level 1:50 scale. Kit includes laser cut wooden strips and pieces, fittings set, sail, rigging thread, plan and manual.
The Oseberg was found in Norway at Oseberg in Vestfold in 1903, resting on a bed of blue clay and covered with turf and stones. The Oseberg was built in the last half of the 800's and was buried roughly 50 years later. The ship is some 50 to 100 years older than similar vessels which have been found. It lay deep in the water and must have been relatively dangerous under sail.

- Wooden hull
Scale 1:50
Length 24cm

Billing Boats of Denmark manufacture an outstanding range of high quality static and radio controlled model boats.

Using the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) techniques, most kits contain laser cut wooden parts for precise accuracy and extensive fittings sets containing brass and or injection moulded plastics, resulting in models of great detail that are truly pleasurable to build.

In addition to ABS hulls, Billing Boats take pride in producing lovely plank on frame models, including the recent wooden version of the Andrea Gail (of the Perfect Storm). Also the gorgeous Evelyn fishing boat is a lovely build, built inverted and using its own hull frames as a self locking jig to secure the bulwarks. It is marks of quality such as these that have ensured that Billing Boats have remained leaders in model boat manufacture.

Exciting new technologies enable entire ships to be created in 3D computer form, in order to be sectioned into parts for laser cutting, from the new USS Constitution, HMS Victory, or HMS Warrior to the fantastic Fairmont Alpine salvage tug and finally the soon to be released RMS Titanic in 1/144 scale. Subjects such as these highly complex vessels were not possible just a few years ago. Rest assured, however, that whilst these ships are complex, the models are highly accurate and fit together perfectly.

Choose from a range of sailing yachts, racing boats, speed boats, sports boats, clipper ships, galleons, yawls, schooners, steam launches, fishing boats, research boats, fishing trawlers, tugs and frigates.

Whichever way you look at it, there is a Billing Boats model boat that is just right for you.
