Stage 119 Contents: Doors and Mouldings, Decorations.

Retrieve the decorations C160, C161 and C162 from stage 118. Remove any burrs or flash, then assemble the decorations and apply a coat of metal primer. Now follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint these decorations.

The two starboard galleries now need to be assembled in the same way as the port galleries. This is where I hit a problem. As you can see from the pic below, one of the upper gallery roof pieces is obviously wrong and a replacement has had to be requested. It means the starboard galleries cannot be fitted nor can the stern decorations. Once the correct part has been received then the missing elements of this build stage will be completed.

Prepare the starboard side of the hull for the fitting of the galleries in the same way as you did for the port side.

Hold the lower port gallery in position and mark a line on the hull, through the opening in the gallery roof. Paint the area immediately around the line with either black or brown. Repeat on the other side of the hull.

Glue the port galleries in position, making final adjustments to get the best fit possible. Once dried, touch up areas of the paintwork where needed.

Remove the doors and the mouldings from the fret supplied in this stage. Remove any burrs or joins from the edges the apply a coat of metal primer to the doors. Follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint the doors.

Store any unused parts in a bag labelled with this stage number.

This stage is now complete.

Hi Alan,


Well, I am just blown away with your build Alan and your painting is so precise it reminds me of your SOT'S build and that was amazing.

Stage 120 Contents: Deadeyes, Decorations and Dummy Cannons.

Retrieve two of the moldings supplied and primed in stage 119. Paint the moldings red (RAL3020) and when dry, paint the relief parts yellow (RAL1023).

Retrieve the eight decorations C169 and the four decorations C165 from stage 119. You also need the decorations C166, C167 and C168 from this stage. Remove any burrs or flash, then apply a coat of metal primer and leave to dry. Now follow the painting guide provided within the instructions to paint all these decorations.

Now retrieve the seven painted doors from stage 119. Locate the positions of each of the doors against the bulkheads and then glue them into place.

Cut a length of 0.5x5mm wooden strip to fit between the main deck doors. Trim the strip to 2mm wide and paint it red (RAL3020). Mark two lines, 2mm apart, in the centre of the strip and glue the strip onto the deck between the two doors. Cut a 2x2mm wooden strip to the same length as decoration C169. Paint the strip red then glue it against the bulkhead, between the lines marked on the strip. Glue a decoration C169 in the centre of the space between the door and the post just fitted. Then glue two more decorations C169 at equal distances on each side of the first one. Glue the three other decorations C169 to the wall on the other side of the post.

Cut a length of 2x2mm wooden strip to fit on top of the decorations between the two doors. Cut a 0.5x5mm wooden strip lengthways to half its width, then cut it to the same length as the 2x2mm strip you just cut. Paint the new strip yellow (RAL1023), and the 2x2mm strip red (RAL3020). Glue the red strip onto the tops of decorations C169 then glue the yellow strip on top of the red. Glue decorations C168 and C166 up against the sides of the doors then glue decoration C167 in the centre, in between them.

Cut a length of 2x5mm wooden strip to fit between the two doors, on top of the decorations just fitted. Cut a length of 2x2mm wooden strip to the same length, paint the strips red and yellow then glue them together. Cut one of the moldings to the same length as the strips and glue it to the front of the yellow strip. Now glue the assembly on top of decorations C166, C167 and C168, between the doors.

Cut a length of 0.5x5mm wooden strip to fit between the quarterdeck doors and trim it to 4mm wide. Paint the strip red (RAL3020) and glue it in place between the doors. Glue the four decorations C165 onto the strip, spaced equally between the doors. Cut a length of 2x5mm wooden strip to fit between the doors and trim it to 4mm wide. Paint the strip red and then cut and glue a section of molding to fit to the front of the strip. Glue the piece on top of the four decorations C165.

Cut a length of 0.5x5mm wooden strip to fit between the aft most door and the bulwark. Trim the strip so that it is 2mm deep, then paint one side red and one of the edges yellow. When the paint is dry, glue the strip in place. Take the last two decorations C169 and file the bottoms of the decorations so that they will rest on the strip, flush with the bulkhead. Glue the decorations in place ensuring they are evenly spaced.

Cut another 2x5mm strip to 2x2mm, to fit between the door and the bulwark. Paint the strip red then glue a piece of molding, trimmed to size, along one edge. Glue this strip into position on top of the two decorations C169.

Store any unused parts in a bag labelled with this stage number.

This stage is now complete.

Thanks for looking in guys, appreciated.....Cool Cool

@Andy, she's certainly a colourful ship, the colour scheme is in line with the information revealed by the Vasa Museum.... very flamboyant to say the least....BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

@Roy, detailing all these decorations doesn't do the eyesight any good after an hour or so of painting.... Getting near the end of them though....BigGrin BigGrin
