Vasa Pack 7 – Stages 66 - 77

Stage 66 Contents: Grating Strips and Decoration


Remove any flash or burrs from the decoration C45, then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint the decoration then store carefully until needed.

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

Separate two G1 and two G4 pieces from the fret supplied with stage 65. Assemble the parts to create a frame in the same way as with previous frames.

Take 12 grating strips and cut each strip to create an 8 notch and 6 notch pieces, then take a further 2 grating strips cutting each strip into two 6 notch pieces. Now create a frame with two of each of the grating pieces, ensuring the inner corners are set to 90 degrees. Glue in place a further four 8 notch pieces and six 6 notch pieces to complete the grating.

Sand the grating until it fits inside the frame previously assembled from the frame fret, then glue the pieces together to create part GD. Follow the same process to create a second part GD.

Take the two GD gratings and all the GD, GC and GE grating assemblies from stages 63 and 65. Glue them together in the sequence shown in steps 11 to 13 of the instructions, ensuring the edges are aligned.

Retrieve the prepared 2x2mm wooden strips from Stage 64 to create the grating frame. The ends of the strips should be cut to 45 degrees to fit flush together. Glue the strips to the edges of the grating.

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

Stage 69 Contents: Wooden Strips, Forward Deck, Bow Reinforcements and Door Frames.

Glue two rows of 0.5x4mm wooden strips along the deck on either side of those already there. The join between the strips should be 30mm forward of the join in the inner rows and the ends of the rows should be flush with the edges of the deck at the bow and stern. Glue another two rows to the deck next to those just fitted, ensuring you maintain the stagger points between strips. The front edge should finish as close to the forward edge of the deck as possible and the aft edge of the row should be flush with the stern bulwark. Smooth the ends of the strips along the front edge of the deck flush with the edge.

Remove parts 94 to 97 from the fret and smooth the edges of the parts. Test fit and glue reinforcement 94 into the hole in the centre of the bow deck, up against frame 2 and ensuring that the reinforcement is set at 90 degrees to frame 2.

Test fit and glue the two reinforcements 95 into the next openings in the bow deck, inside parts 2b. Check that the rear ends of the two reinforcements are touching frame 2. Now test fit and glue the two reinforcements 96 into the two remaining slots in the bow deck, making sure the aft edges are glued to frame 2.

Apply glue to the tops of the reinforcements and then place the forward deck onto them. The notch at the rear of the deck should engage with the top of reinforcement 94. Make sure the forward deck is as flush as possible with the forward edge of the main deck.

Remove any burrs or flash from door frames 125 and 140 supplied with this stage, then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Store the door frames until needed.

This stage is now complete. Carefully store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 70 Contents: Brown Thread, Cannon, Carriage, Wheels, Metal Rod, Eyebolts and Brackets.

Shape a 1x4mm wooden strip, supplied in stage 69, to fit from one side of the hull to the other, around the front and at the bottom of the reinforcements at the bow. Glue the strip in place. Shape another 1x4mm wooden strip to fit around the front edge of the forward deck. Glue it in place, flush with the top edge of the deck.

Shape another strip to fit around the bow, underneath the strip fitted in the previous step then glue it into place. Shape another strip to fit in the gap remaining and glue into place. Any remaining gap should be filled with an offcut of similar wooden strip. Now sand the strips fitted until you have a smooth and even surface.

Draw a line along the centre of the forward deck and glue a piece of 0.5x4mm wooden strip (supplied in stage 69), to the deck, up against the line. Then glue another piece of wooden strip on the other side of the line. Continue to apply 0.5x4mm wooden strips to the deck from the centre out to the edges. Trim the ends of the strips flush with the forward edge of the deck.

Separate the cannon carriage components from the fret, smooth the edges of all the parts and paint them black. The assembly of the carriage is the same as that outlined in Stage 9 so will not be repeated here.

Remove any imperfections from the barrel of the cannon then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Paint the cannon with a bronze colour (No RAL Code). Store the cannon and the assembled carriage until needed again.

This stage is now complete. Carefully store any unused parts in a stage labelled bag.
