  1. I am very glad to have found this website with, luckily for me, many build logs on the Wasa from Corel. I will use many of the tips and pictures posted in these logs for my guidance and as a example of what gifted modelbuilders can achieve. I have bought a 'used' model of the Wasa about a year ago for a low price. It was in a very bad shape and the modelbuilder (not the person from which I have bought the model) did some things really well, but other parts were absolutely desastrous. Also it had suffered from neglect and the masts were broken off. When I saw the model as it wa
  2. Hello everybody. I am kinda new here. I mean i have kept an eye on basically every ship build here. And now i thought its time for me to post my build! This isn´t my first build (first was La Couronne - because of the price tag :D), but this one i want to make as original as possible (for the real thing). As I said my goal is to make this ship as it is right now..not what it was. But will see through the process. Maybe some colors here and there- will see! And little bit of the backstory as well. Like my name says i am from Estonia. I have liked those old ships f
  3. Just had a major 7 week vacation through Europe and arrived home to find the first of 12 packs from England for the Vasa kit. I saw the original Vasa in Sweden in 2012 and always wished I could get this ship for my collection and to my surprise England has the kit and allowed us guys down under to purchase direct. I am exited to see the parts are of the same high standard as the Souvereign of the Seas I finshed early this year. photo’s will follow when i commence serious construction
  4. Hi, My name is Peter, and I live in the snow country of south-east Australia (yes we do have snow in parts of Australia during winter!!!). About 12 months ago, following an inspirational cruise in the Baltic Sea and a visit to the Vasamuseet in Stockholm, I commenced building the Billing Boat's Vasa. This is the second large Billing Boat I have constructed, the first being the Cutty Sark, almost 40 years ago. This model is proudly displayed in a glass case in our home and has been a talking point and feature most of my life. Hopefully, while I now have more time, the Vasa will be t
  5. The making of this model was started in 2006 After visiting the Wasa museum in Stockholm. It's my 1st wooden ship model. Normally I only build military vehicles in 1/72 scale Ps, I understand and read English. But i've never learned to write it. So. All I write in English will be translated from Dutch to English with google translate. Sorry for that.
  6. Well here we go, with my first log. The Wasa. It looks quite challenging but extremely interesting to build. The history of the ship is fascinating, and one day I will visit the WASA Museum in Stockholm. The attached file is just the beginning, with the layout, and the review of the drawings. I will keep you posted on the progress with as many pictures as I can spare the time for. Looking forward to talking to you all and those in particular building the same boat. JM

  8. Hi! I m making the models with the 2-3 weeks system ( 2 weeks only scotish, 2 weeks only vasa) If you want to see previous stages of build watch this: http://santisimatrinidad.jun.pl/viewtopic.php?t=2242&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 (polish) I m in the 48 number of dea book. *** oppossed to instructions i stains the planks, because instruction watch of the vasa not satisfied me (PAINT ALL HULL WHAT???) And the stage that i was most afraid of began. The planting of the 2 layer planks. Result was really satisfied me. Planks are from the kit,
  9. This is my build of the Deag Vasa . Having built the Corel offering I vowed never to build one again until I saw this one. The main thing that persuaded me as it has been designed with the help of the Vasa museum and Fred Hocker the museum director. It's not 100% accurate but as close as you can get with the restrictions of a commercial kit and a lot more historical accurate than anything out there I have downloaded the instructions from the build site and looking at them it's really impressive with hundreds of cast carvings and good quality wood. I have the first 6 issues and the quali
