detailed log is available on a Dutch forum, (see my signature for my private website and links)

but as of today I will post all new information. I am not going to rebuild the log.

in case information is required about some previous stages in the building, please ask and I will reply to the specific question within my log.

Hello Jan,

 

Just returned from a sidetrip to look at your buildlog. You've made sketches to put in the last planks using stealers or drop planks.

They look great. If I'm correct, you made those on your PC? What kind of program did you use?

We have an Apple PC, but haven't found the correct software yet to be able to do these things.

 

Your Wasa is looking great. I look forward to your progress.

 

PS - Thanks for he link to your website. The diorama looks great, it will maybe even look greater if the Wasa is moored there.

 

Take care,

 

Anja

This evening I tried to locate all attributes on the Stockholm scale model (1:10). I am going to use this as a basis for the painting

I will print these pictures and use these as a guideline during painting

 

reference is made to the part numbers according the building instruction of Corel. I also marked the items in a sort box

JanV,

 

You are braver than I. You will paint your figures. The 1/10th at the museum is truly astonishing. You may know of this other example that the builder also painted all the figures. I have downloaded all of the jpg's and refer to his build often as a reference. His is scratch built. However it is so close to the original that the more I studied the pics the more I realized how much work actually went into this build. Truly beautiful!!

Here is a link from where you can view many photos.

Regarding painting of the figures, as good as some of the castings are in the kit,I wont attempt to infuse all of the detail of the original, but I will instead try to "age" the look of the figures to mask my lack of talent (:-)

 

 

 

Your project is coming along beautifully.

thanks for your comments. I have seen a build log on the old MSW, but I did not make a pdf of that log, from someone who did the same with a Corel kit. After visiting the Museum in Stockholm in November last year I finally decided to have the painting as equal as possible to the 1:10 scale model.

 

PS: I made several pictures in the Museum, however due to the darkness most pictures are to dark. If someone is planning to go to the museum in Stockholm be sure you have a photo camera which can perform perfect pictures in almost darkness.

So yours will be flaring red in stead of the Landstrom blue?

Will be in ainteresting excercise, painting the little figures in full colour.

(btw: how do the Corel figures match to the originals?)

you are wright Ulises, that is one of the advantages of building the Vasa, it just left the yard so all painting was as it was planned by the painters.

I realize this will be a big job to do all that painting, but I have no timelimit to finish the model, it should be ready before I retire in 2027 or 2029 depending on the Dutch politics  :dancetl6:

JanV,

 

this link, if you did not know about it, should be helpful regarding paint details. Double click each pic to get a super detailed large one.

Good luck.

This website is already in my favorites, and also their website with pictures of the scale model in 1:10

in order to prepare all parts for the bow section, I figured out that the figures need to be mounted before finalizing the wooden parts.

 

 

I prepared a box to be used as spraycabine and first sprayed these items with a layer "primer". after that the basic color with normal Humbrol paint.

Corel should be ashamed of their own kits....

Both the lion and the 'curved ladies' are alos part of the Prins Willem- kit.....

 

Why did you go for a yellow base colour for the lion?

I would have thought taking red as the base colour.....
