I have started it but it is on Hold until I get all the parts. The reason is that I Will replace the Luther layer Wood with more quality Wood. The metal casted figiures armé wonderful. Don`t follow the instructions blindfold since they are not following the logical steps when building a wooden model. If this is your first wooden model I can more then highly recommend to be a member and check out the model shipword forum modelshipworld.com/.
I'm also building the Vasa from Deag and have issue 7 and now completed issue 4 . I must agree that the instructions are very good but a bit weird in the construction process but I think it's because it's a partwork and it gives people something to do between issues. I'm really loving this kit though. Martyn
