Hello ship builder!
Let me introduce myself. I live in Stockholm, Sweden I am 63 years old and have retired since a year, and can now start building models full time. I not only build wooden ships but have probably built a little of each, type Pocher cars plastic models, multimedia models of various kinds and in different sizes.
My first boat model in wood was "Lille Dan" from Billing boats in the early 1980s which was then followed by a large 17th century ship "Santisema madre" from Aprikola in Italy. Then "Fair American" followed a solid wood building that one had to cut out. After that, I took about 20 years of residence from wooden boat construction and built most plastic models. After I retired now I have started building on Vaasa 1628 from Sergal, it is probably the largest model of Vasa that exists. Why I chose Vasa was because the Vaasa Museum is located 30 km from where I live, so I have a lot of information to get there.
I am very impressed by the buildings that I have seen here on the site, I am not nearly as skilled as you shipbuilders, hope to show some pictures from my Vasa building later in the forum.
I will surely learn a lot from this site.
Thanks from Kaparen

Welcome aboard mate! I too would like to see a detailed build log. The Vasa is a splendid ship and would go a long way to helping others with generic building tips.
