    Dremel 8050 micro

    I'm using Dremel Micro (I bought it in December 2014 ) and in my opinion is amazing for small jobs,you can use drill bits from 51mm to 3.2mm. Like I said is for small jobs,it comes with 5-speed, 1 or 2 you can have a great accuracy. Speeds up 1 or 2 is too much for this small Dremel and is not recommended to use it at high speeds for a long time. For me is a great tool and I recommend it for the type of work that we do,after you try it,you fall in love (tip: ideal for round dogs nails after cutting)

    MONTAÑES by montanes

    Amalio, is your plan to finish the ship with a complete rigging ? (arboladura) I hope if you do, since it would be very helpful in terms of learning in addition to being a work of art due to the precision in the detail.

    Lanyard Dilemma

    If I'm not mistaken that is the galeon Andalucia, which I saw and is not 100% replica. The right way to do this is as shown in the picture.
  7. Billing Boats have this model,maybe they can help too.

    No more plastic

    Each one can do whatever he wants and whatever more convenient, example, you don't have much time, do not want to spend too much time working with your hands and tools, plastic boats are then used... they are very detailed and just glue and paint. But the satisfaction of working with wood is priceless, in experienced hands can be a work of art... nothing more noble that bring to life a piece of wood. I remember when my father constructed plastic models, I looked it for hours and my eyes just passed the table (only had 5 years)... He gave me the passion for the construction of models but when I discovered in my adolescence wooden ships,my destination was forged ... Since then only use wood (I'm 53 now)
