  1. Great info Guys! Thank you so much! So it seems that the Santisima Trinidad had indeed two different paintings : yellow and red. I will look closely the British National Museum`s website for captured Spanish ships. Also, the paintings of Carlos Parilla Penagos are beautiful...

  2. I wonder if there are any accurate plans big Spanish ships from the XVIII-XIX centuries. My understanding is that the plans of the flagship Santissima Trinidad are lost and only paintings or drawings have survived. I still don`t know if the hull was red, yellow or brown as there are several versions...


    But what about the San Juan Nepomuceno, the San Ildefonso or the Montagnes? Do we have some accurate information about the plans and description of these ships?

    Hi Oliver, Nice build so far.

    I am sure others will correct me if I am wrong but I think that you have built up the anchors wrongly.

    The wooden stock should be perpendicular to the flukes, rather than parallel as you have built them.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    That it quite right! I have noticed the mistake and will correct them. Thank you for your input!
