Default early sea power

two kits Im working on...the Wasa launched 1628, and Victory launched around 1750s. Wasa is a Billing boats kit, and is quite nice but exspensive, all lasar cut wood parts and (unfortunatly) plastic decorations galore. while Victory is an older Sergal kit, a mixture of lasar and die cut parts, and LOTS of metal decoration. both have a huge number of turned brass cannon...bot are in their first day of construction, on different days. I spent all day yesterday building Wasa from start to this point.

Wasa on the building jig, Victory on the floor. both ships are around 1/76 scale, and measure around 3 feet at present, will be around 40 to 45 inches when completed.

Default Re: early sea power

Sounds good to me!
I'd say, if I may suggest as such, if you're doing the Vicky in action then have the sails (assuming you'll have sails) set battle fashion.

Apart from that, go to it how you see fit.
Like the idea of a few figures too, gives it a good sense of scale and life which is how it should be.


Please continue sah!
