  1. Activities of this weekend. Finished lower deck and started with Hull part. Replaced plywood part with walnut lookalike
  2. Overview of the contents of the kit. Started with assembly next step will be the planking of the deck
  3. After long period of no model building due to moving to new house and renovations I decided to restart with a standard kit. In the mean time build some RC kits (Hovercraft and DF65 Sailing boat) fo use within the Modelclub Selection was made for this small Battle station from Panart. Once this is finished I will restart with the Wasa I need no to check how I can share pictures. Log will follow shortly
  4. Looks very good Andre. I will review your log, when I start finishing my model after a stop of more than 4 years.
  5. Hi Michael, This is a very nice lantern. It will be a challenge to come close for all other Vasa (Corel) builders😀
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Traffic is at this moment 5GB/month. so I don't expect any problems with that. (provider is webreus.nl)
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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)
  19. 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.
  20. just got some time on the weekly evening of our Modelbuilding club to restart the building activities
