good to hear from you, welcome to the club! I am also 57 years old and I'm also from Germany. I had never heard of a Modelspace Vasa so I googled a bit and found out that it is apparently the DeAgostini Vasa. Have you subscribed the model? Where do you get it from?
Hi Peter, nice to meet a neighbor here :-) Actually I’m building the Italian version, but very soon I will start with the official build diary at the Modelspace Forum. The Vasa will be launched in Germany this month.
