Hi all my name is Martyn a 61 year old from Suffolk in the UK and have been building model ships for over 5 years. I started with the Sovereign of the Seas from Deag and my latest build is the Vasa also from Deag . I'm on pack 4 at the moment. I hope to learn a lot more of this stunning ship from the very knowledgeable members of this forum . Martyn
Welcome aboard Martyn! I am one of the regular contributors here, but my day is job is director of research at the Vasa Museum. If you come up with any specific questions not answered in the kit (what colour is this part? How many belaying pins on this rail?), just post them here and I will be glad to answer, especially if it means I have to go on board the ship and measure something!
Glad to know that the English version of the DeAg kit is out.
Hi Fred and thank you . I plan to show my build on this forum and will probably have lots of questions to make sure it's as accurate as possible. I love ships from the 17th century and have built the Sovereign of the Seas and the Soleil Royal so the Vasa fits in perfectly.
