Vasa Pack 5 – Stages 42 - 53

Stage 42 Contents: Stem, Parts of the Keel, Wooden Strips


Glue a 2x5mm wooden strip on each side of the hull from the front of frame 4 aft to 10mm past frame 7. Now glue another strip from the front edge of frame 13 aft to halfway across frame 19, repeat on the other side of the hull. Complete the row with a strip from frame 19 aft to the forward edge of the transom and repeat on the other side of the hull.

Fix a strip from frame 14 to halfway across frame 18, repeat on the starboard side. Complete the row with a strip from frame 18 aft to the front edge of the transom and repeat on the starboard side.

Glue a strip from the front edge of frame 15 to the front of the transom wall, repeat on the starboard side. Then glue another strip from the front edge of frame 17 to the front edge of the transom wall and repeat this on the other side of the hull.

Glue four rows of 0.5x4x300mm strips along the length of the deck, with two rows on each side. The strips at the bow should overlap the edge of the deck slightly and the strips should be staggered amidships as shown in Step 9 of the instructions. Shape the aft ends of the strips to fit around the uprights.

Recover the C24 decoration from Stage 41 and smooth any flash or burrs with a file, then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint the decorations then store carefully until needed.

Painted decoration for this build stage will be shown at the end of this pack.

This stage is now complete. Carefully store the assembly, place any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 43 Contents: Stern Post, Wooden Strips.

Trim the aft ends of the rows of strips in line with the transom, then smooth the cuts to create flush edges from port to starboard. The ends of the strips and frames 20a-20e should be aligned with the false keel. Make sure to follow the curve of parts such as 27. Paint the inside of the stern structure black, as shown in step 3 of the instructions.

Now cut a 100mm length of 2x5mm wooden strip and smooth the edges. Glue the strip to the transom, aligning it with the top edge of 20e. The strip should extend evenly over those at the sides. Glue another strip underneath, then place eight more strips under the previous two, making sure that each strip is flush against the one above and overlapping the sides.

Now glue a further three strips above the one you first fitted, then fit another six strips above the previous ones, between the two sides 27. Glue a strip between the side walls, placing it flush with the lower edge of frame 24. Apply three strips above the one just fitted. When the last strip has dried, sand it so that it curves from one side wall to the other.

Glue two rows of 0.5x4mm strips onto each side of the deck, up against the existing rows. Look at the images in step 14 of the instructions to see how to position them. The strips at the bow should overlap the edge of the deck slightly and the strips should be staggered amidships. Shape the aft ends of the strips to fit around the uprights.

This stage is now complete. Carefully store the assembly, place any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 44 Contents: Decorations, Wooden Strips.

Apply a wooden strip below the strip fitted in step 10, Stage 43, then glue another strip underneath. Cut two 22 x 4mm pieces of strip and shape into wedges to match those shown in step 3 of the instructions. The gaps they fill on your model may be slightly different in size, adjust the wedges as necessary then fix the wedges to fill the two gaps in the strips.

Glue a strip across the transom from port to starboard, overlapping the walls slightly. Shape the strip to match the profile of the hull. Then place another shaped strip below the one just fitted. Now glue three more shaped strips above the first one fitted, filling the space up to the lower edge of the transom wall. Shape a strip to fill the gap between walls 33 and 34, it should be roughly 4mm wide but yours may differ.

Cut away the excess from the strips that overlap both sides of the hull. Make sure that the strips at the stern are flush with those at the sides, as shown in step 10 of the instructions.

Remove any flash or burrs from parts C13, C15 and C19 with a file, then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint the decorations then store carefully until needed.

Painted decoration for this build stage will be shown at the end of this pack.

This stage is now complete. Carefully store the assembly, place any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.
