  5. I have inherited a part built Santa Maria - Artesania Latina. The gentleman who gifted it to me does not have the time or patience to complete it. The previous builder has assembled the false keel and frames, attached and planked the main deck and planked the forward bulkhead. As I have just about completed my Newport build, I thought I would have a bit of a tinker with Santa Maria. I have found 3 problems so far: 1. The false keel was very badly bowed. 2. I don't like the way the deck is planked 3. There is only one plan ( i am assuming that there should me more plan sheets
  6. On the last leg of this voyage. Running rigging nearly complete. I have a problem with a couple of the lines that are fixed close together twisting on themselves. You can probably see them in this photo. I will have to re-do them.
  7. A productive weekend in the shipyard. All the standing rigging is complete and ready to fit yards and booms.
  8. A little bit more progress on my build. Having to work for a living is no good when you have hobbies or other pastimes. There never seems to be enough time to enjoy them. As you will se from tees pics, i have started on the rigging. Even after studying other build logs here, there still needs to be a lot of thought and planning before starting. I have made quite a few mistakes and had a few re-does, but am finally making some progress. I hate how close up shots show flaws that you can't see with the naked eye. The rain has started here now and we are supposed to have a wet weekend.
  9. Welcome aboard Greg. Good to see another modeller on the Goldy. You will always find plenty of good advice and tips on this forum. Dave.
  10. Thanks for that. I had hoped to not pull it all apart, but it does seem to be the only way to fix it properly. It looks like they have used PVA glue, so hopefully I can pull it apart easily. Dave.
  11. I'll try tat one again. I have just found your log. I have inherited a partially built Santa Maria. All the bulkheads have ben fitted along with the main deck. The problem is, the whole is twisted out of shape. I am trying to figure out a way to straiten it without having to pull it all apart.
