    Good morning. This is the original blueprint with which I have built the model. In the research room of the Naval Museum of Madrid, there are digitizations of original plans of infinity of Spanish ships including those previously mentioned. With them and consulting regulations and monitoring the evolution of Spanish shipbuilding, you can reach a point of knowledge sufficient to make a worthy model, although there will always be doubts on many points.
  3. Hello Doris and happy new year. Sometimes I find it hard to believe what you are capable of doing. You have all my admiration.

  5. Hello, Doris. If I managed to master the technique of decoration as you do, would be the happiest modeler in the world. Greetings from Madrid.
  6. It's incredible. Everything is perfect and the result is magnificent. I think you have reached the maximum that can be done in naval modeling. You have all my admiration.
