  1. Thank you all for your kind comments.

  2. I have finally come to an end as my eyes have given in to double vision. I have posted the last lot of work.
  3. Finally back to doing some work on the boat after some health issues. I have started doing some sail work .
  4. Hi bobc622, You may also note I built a few extra items on the deck that were not part of the kit. You will see those items in my photos.

  6. Hi bobc622 Thank you for your kind comments. This was a great project but you are right that the instructions could have been more detailed. The best thing I did was buy the book called the “Anatomy of the ship-Captain Cooks Endeavour “ by Karl Heinz Marquardt. This book became my bible and it showed all I needed. I got two instruction books in the kit,one with black and white photos and one with descriptive wording on each stage. If you like a copy of the second instruction book I could send them to you in a seperate email if you want give that to me. Eddie
  7. I have actually walked over the Batavia in Holland and was a very impressive ship. Very similar to the Vaasa . Look forward seeing this model develop. Snoepert.
  8. Looking forward to see your build. I have built this model and enjoyed the journey. Hope you have he same experience eddie
  9. Your workmanship and detailed work has given me a lot of incentive to achieve better for my model thanks for posting your work as I will use it as a guide. eddie
  10. Hi Paul welcome to the world of retirement. Sometimes you get the feeling you are busier now then when you worked but it’s all totally enjoying. Did this model and thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. Enjoy, Eddie
  11. Hi DanielD when I did my decks I laid individual planks down and added some very fine black cotton that has been run through bees wax. This gives a great appearance of caulking.
