He, Markus, converted it..he shows how in the second link. I´d like to do this with a viking ship, but only if it was possible to get the oars attached to a servo so they moved as well. I´ve seen a roman Bireme in 1/32nd scale (scratch built) that had the oars moving, looked pretty impressive.

The boat itsself is a big kit..can be built as a full display or waterline version. I´ve got one sitting on the shelf, unbuilt. Everytime I look in the box, my heart sinks at the thought of all that woodwork!!
