The 1:150 Swedish Regal Ship Wasa by Revell
« on: January 31, 2018, 05:37:19 pm »
Well, this is just dandy. Just when I'm about to start up this project again I'm getting a cold. I wonder if its a message from the guy upstairs telling me to give it up, well if so he has met his match.

But then I'm a guy, and the ladies know when we guys get sick we tend to get a bit homesick for mom's chicken soup (or whatever is our favorite). Common guys raise your hand now don't be shy you know I'm telling the truth here, or am I out sailing.

Speaking of which, let's start this chapter of Sweden's first attempt at building a submarine.





I didn't want the regular stand instead I placed the ship moored at the docks.



And as you can see I have started a bit on the top deck painting. For starters, I'm focusing on getting the yellow line painted up first.



And as you can see by the dates on the photos It's been on the shelf for quite some time.

It will have homemade Lanyards and Ratlines on the lowest level any higher might be more of a headache at this time, haven't done any kind of wooden boat in the past. But it's on my bucket list.


For now, this is the state of the aft parts. I might use some mild solvent to strip the paint and start over.

ok since my sleeping routine is shot to heck by this damn cold, I figure I might as well give you an update on the build.

Basically, I'm starting over from scratch, I yanked the gun-decks from the inside of the ship and sanded off some annoying one-millimeter producing things (my English failing me here)


filed of glue residue on the inside of the hull.


The next three photos are just to show the new fit.






Last is a dry fit of the transom


Now, I had this Ida of adding a full second gundeck. But even if I drilled the holes in the grading on the deck they would be so mal you wouldn't be able to see it anyway. so I'm skipping that alteration.

I visited the Wasa a few years ago.  Amazing that it was so intact after so long on the bottom.  I have not seen this kit before, looks pretty cool.

If anyone is interested, Wasa's lowest gun deck was a bit too low.  On the maiden voyage she took a couple of rolls, flooded, and sank.  Inglorious end for such a fine looking ship.
