Hi I am a new member and congrats on your modelling it looks great. I am building the Billings kit and have come across a small problem, I do seem able to understand the instruction on how to assemble the 4 Crows Nests. Can anyone help with a phot of the made item, I can perhaps work it out from there. I have completed then hull and am now starting on the final deck detail, leading to the masts and rigging. About 9 months building so far there are times when I feel I H~AVE given birth! Terry
Thanks for asking for advice. I also used plan sheets from the Vasa Museum. Also Fred Hocker has a thread (on this site) that has drawings of the platforms. I also used those – look here for that info.
YES- it is a complicated ship to get right. Good luck.. here are a few pics of the process.
