A masterpiece! Is this Deagostini version based on the Corel kit? It sure does like it so it seems?

 

beautiful workmanship, One of the best Vasa models I have seen.

Katsumoto,

This kit is absolutely NOT based on the Corel version; Corel's example is the least accurate of all the Vasa kits available (yes, mine was a Corel)

Of the Deagostini examples in progress Marek's work here is brilliant.

He has really captured the finely detailed colorful artwork that was present on the original - based on analysis of wood figures found after its resurrection. The museum's replicated carvings are an excellent tool to use as guides.

Check! I read that the kit was fabricated by Artesania Latina with the help and research of the Vasa museum. Pretty impressie kit it is, but a bit expensive! 🙂

Czek! Czytałem, że zestaw został sfabrykowany przez Artesanię Latinę z pomocą i badaniami muzeum Vasa. Całkiem imponujący zestaw, ale trochę drogi! 🙂

In fact, actually quite expensive but ...

Good development of notebooks showing the history of sailing and techniques used in boatbuilding.
Good quality of wooden material.
Excellent quality of metal decoration casts.

In Poland, one issue of the notebook with parts in subscription = two packets of cigarettes.
So a collection of 140 = 280 packs of cigarettes or 140 bottles of pure vodka.
In this conversion it is quite cheap.😁😉

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.
