Hola Frank, can you send me a copy of the  pdf you already sent to Mark?  As you know the instructions of the BB Vas are not so good.

 

Thank you very much in advance.

 

Saludos, Karl

I am working away on the gun ports.

In the mean time I wanted to share my messy work room, where my wife says I spend too much time!

 

My work area (with my faithful TV!)

Wow - nice setup.Your work area is almost as messy as mine B) .Looks like the black table is adjustable in height - something I could really use when rigging these tall ships.

Nice Frank....

 

Lot's of space, that is a premium for many of us based on pics that have been shared. Great exhaust/dust setup. Really first class, except for that square heavy glass box. Is that a TV (:-) (:-) Haven't seen one of those kind in years ha ha.....

 

Regards,

 

Michael

Ask her if she'd rather you spend time at the workshop or at the local bar.  ;)  ;)  ;)

Mark,

Yes, the table is adjustable in height and so is my chair, so between the two, I can move up and down easily. The table also tilts, but I have not had an occasion to use that feature!

Ulises,

 

My wife tells her friends that "at least I know where he is at night. He could be sneaking out with dollar bills in his pockets"  :) 

 

Michael,

I need that TV for my Patriots football team and for my favorite sport "Boston Celtic basketball"!!

very nice workshop, looks really professional

Good idea for you dustcollection system to all your machinery, I can maybe use this in the future also.

Jan,

Great idea about the computer/laptop! I'm always bringing my IPad to my workroom, but touchscreen is not so great when my hands are dirty.

Working on the gun ports now.

 

When I was planking the hull, back in the beginning, I made the gun ports, using the same wood.

post-951-0-80904700-1407847250_thumb.jpg

 

Now, using my face grinder, I tipped the table 55 degrees and chamfered the back ends to the angle I will be having the gun ports open to.

post-951-0-89579900-1407847263_thumb.jpg

 

I drilled holes for a support pin, perpendicular to the angle, for extra support.

Continuing on, 

 

I blackened all the hinges.

Also blackened all the eyelets for the ropes on the gun ports

 Gold leafed the lion heads

post-951-0-45122900-1407847632_thumb.jpg

 

Glued the hinges on.

post-951-0-73056000-1407847641_thumb.jpg

 

Now I am working on adding the ropes to the eyelets.

Very nice work on the Wasa (Vasa)~! 

Your shop looks good, and since it works for you, then it is great.

I visited Vasa in Stockholm last year-awe inspiring.  After that, and reviewing your build log, I think it is time for me to build one.

Hello Duff,

Thanks for visiting my log!

Glad that you were able to visit the Vasa in Stockholm. I am working on my wife to take a trip out to Sweden next year! Everyone says it is a "must see" attraction. I wish I went before I started my ship, but I have been fortunate to have other members of this site provide me with great photos of the real ship.

 

Thanks,

Frank

Message Port?

    Hello Frank; Are you sure this definition is correct, not mislabeled in translation?

I would have thought it was more like a scupper for draining wash-water from the pumps!

Another possibility, it could be a ballast port through which stones,etc. were loaded into

the ships hold.    Regards, pollex

Hello Pollex,

 

You may be right! I read somewhere (I don't remember where)  that this was the port where a small boat would pull up to and drop off letters and / or messages.

I may be wrong!

 

If anyone has more definitive knowledge of what the port was used for, let me know!

 

Thanks Pollex,

 

Frank

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for clearing that up for me! I remember seeing it somewhere and it must have been at the Vasa Dream Web site, which I have book marked.

 

Thanks again,

Frank

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.
