  1. Hi Michael Just found your build log for the first time (had a long break due to work in our new house) I noticed the same high quality like with your Vasa. You got me very good idea's which I also might use, I am planning to make an Cross Section of an Dutch 17Century ship from scratch. Log to follow during 2019.
  2. just before Christmas finished my new workshop area. now to build an special table for sawing and sanding tools including automatic vacuum cleaner which start automatic when I start one of the tools I will make some pictures when Vasa returns to the workshop.
  3. Finally received the new bookcase with a nice place to show the Vasa already. and also on an other bookcase a nice spot for my Statenjacht
  4. Michael I have enjoyed your build and have learned a lot for modifitications I have/am going to copy on my Vasa also. Looking forward to your new build log.
  5. That lantern looks great. I myself decided to skip this for the time being, but I will try to search some archives from Maritim Museums in the Netherlands to find pictures of paintings from that period which might give a good idea, but when I am in this stage that will take some years. I can further agree with you concerning the quality of the blocks provided in the kit, these are perfect to start the BBQ in the summer, and I bought the same type of blocks a few year back at a shop in Poland, which was easier for shipment within Europe and no risk for extra custom charges. I am going to save a lot of your log for future use as I am starting to finalize the rigging shortly and can use a lot of your information.
  6. We have completed the renovation of our living and kitchen Just an impression with the Vasa already present. Just waiting now for a final cabinet on which a place is reserved already for the Vasa (even in progress) Further I have re-organised my wood. This is an old cabinet used for drawings (aged back to 1960) and will be used also by my wife for the storage of her hobby paper for Origami.
  7. Still following your build and can still not believe you are building the same kit as I am building. This looks like a scale 1:50 instead of the 1:75 of Corel I am saving some pictures for when I am at that stage. At this moment my build is on hold due to renovation of our house.
  8. Due to reconstruction activities in our living and kitchen the modelbuilding is now on full stop. I hope to restart in spring again after my new workshop is ready. maybe in the coming period some activities during the meetings within our local model club.
  9. Traffic is at this moment 5GB/month. so I don't expect any problems with that. (provider is webreus.nl)
  10. Hi Carl, the gallery is made with PIWIGO a standard application provided by my provider. I have free storage of 10GB, so this can be workable for years now. It is not doable to update all previous postings in MSW, as when opening for editing I cannot see the original filenames quickly. But this gallery is a good alternative.
  11. I have uploaded the pictures on my on server http://www.veraart.net/fotoforum/index.php?/category/1 Files are not sorted, filenames unchanged, as this might be easier to update the various posts.
  12. Due to change of policies from Photobucket all pictures are blocked (can be released by paying $ 400,00) I am going to setup an new photo sharing system on my own account as I am posting on various forums. within a few weeks I expect to post some new pictures and summary of the build.
  13. I am posting on various forums (MSW and some local forums in the Netherlands) and so it was easy to use PB to host the pictures. just pasting the links and only change the text in English. now I need to look for an alternative which is not to store the pictures on every forum separate. as of today my pictures in PB are still visible without any action (I am a member of PB since 2008 already)
  14. Noticed this problem also on various forums I am active. Photobucket changed his policy so various postings using PB as storage for pictures are unreadable now by missing pictures worldwide.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
