Thank you to you. I think this will be my new hobby. This is my first ship and it will be completed. It looks beautiful indeed.
I saved money for a VASA ship kit for a long time. VASA looks to me very nice ship model. There are only a few sellers in Lithuania that sell several sets of ships. I was a little disappointed with the drawings of the VASA kit from COREL as there is a lot not shown there and the drawings are not very accurate. It is difficult for a budding model to understand everywhere. When I finished producing this VASA, I planned to look for another manufacturer's ship, but I saw the drawings of the COREL firm's WAPPEN VON HAMBURG and know that these drawings are really much better than VASA's drawings. I think, that COREL is good company, but COREL VASA is old ship model kit. This kit and drawings must to be update.
Therefore, if anyone buys VASA from me, I will buy another set of ships.
The Corel kit is definitely a challenge. It was developed before the conservation of the ship was finished, and so is not very up to date. I am told it is also difficult to build, partly due to the incomplete plans.
The new deAgostini kit is the most accurate, but only sold on a partworks basis and difficult to find.
Your finished model is very clean, a very good job with a difficult kit. Bravo!
