Wasa by DiKri - Corel - 1626-1628 1:75


Recommended Posts

Thank you all for your reactions.

 

Dominik, visiting the Wasa museum is something that I will certainly try to do.

 

For now, I'm building the model as intended by Corel, knowing well that it will not reflect the original completely.

Current build: Wasa (Corel)

Already build: HMS Fly (Victory Models)

Hey Dirk! 

 

I have a thought for you to try if you like...have you thought about applying a dark wash to the gold details...this should settle in the low spots and highlight (accentuate) the highspots (details) ?

 

It might make the details in the castings stand out and be even more pronounced without taking away the golden look!

 

Just a thought...maybe to try on a separate piece...if it doesn't work just add varsol or alcohol depending on whether you use an oil based wash or a water based wash....

Thanks for the suggestion. I will consider testing it. I don't have dark wax in the house now; so I will need to buy some first :-)

Hey Dirk

 

Not sure if something was lost in translation but as a wash, I meant a very thinned dark paint like 20:1 thinner to paint and using either oil based or water base based paints. You can try difference ratios of thinner to paint but this should give you a starting point. I and many others use this technique in military model painting to bring out details and then dry brush lighter colours on the highlights...but with this I would just add the wash and then wipe off the excess .

 

I wasn't meaning a wax....

 

Hope this helps clarify my friend.

 

Cheers

Steve

OK! Indeed lost in translation. Thanks for the clarification Steve. I never did that kind of things with paint, but never too old to learn :-)

There aren't but two options: do it FAST, or do it RIGHT.

All masts and spars are ready with blocks attached according to the Corel plans.

I placed the masts on the hull just for the photo. The background isn't what it should be, but nice pictures is for later...

 

Next I experimented a little bit with a Bosch PLL5 laser pen as help in aligning the masts. Seems to be very helpfull...
