  1. Thank you @Louie da fly for your kind words. Just begining the build log and facing the first difficulties but eager to learn from them. I know that for running, first you have to learn to walk, and for now i think i’m just crawling. Only dreaming to be able to make something roughly similar to the nice models others members build. Best regards from Barcelona, Pascual
  2. You work have build a very beautiful model. Great Job. Best regards from Barcelona, Pascual
  3. The long strips I first fitted to the bulkheads, are the top and bottom sides of the gun ports. These can only fit in one way. Thank you for the explanation @James H. Very clever and Fail Safe. Much more easy that what i was thinking. The more you show as this model in the forum, the more i like it. waiting for the next update.
  4. One question: The position of the cannon ports is determined by a messure from other part, by example the bow ? close bulkheads ? as in the following quote you stated that you push them into position. It's just that i don't know how to determine this position even probably it would be stated somehow in the instructions. Just curious about that. Really a nice ship. Waiting to see it completelly rigged.
  5. Really a very good work. I always like the ship, but i know that the model it's somehow difficult to find I love the Cousteu series i saw when i was young and the ship with the HeloPad and the miniSubmarine was beautiful. I remember that they have also a Catalyna Airplane from 2WW with the calypso decoration or similar. There was a plastic kit from Revell long time ago for this ship, not remember the Scale. Enjoying your build and keep it as reference just in case i would be able to make the billing boats model sometime. Best regards fr
  6. 4.- Deck Planking In the booklet they just stated to put the deck planks on the deck part and the picture-guide show the planks being assembled in the whole length of the plank, as you can see in picture number 3 and picture 4. I decided to try to improve it, cutting the lenght of the deck planks trying to make it looking more real. As the Scale is 1:25, if a real plank is 200 cm length it have to be 8 cm in 1:25 scale. Not really sure about the length of the plank in real life but 200 cm sounds quite good for me and the boat is not as big as ha
  7. 3.- Assembly the bulkheads I began make some dry fitting with the bulkheads on the structure. I realised that the bulkheads in the middle, as they didn't have a lot of joint surface, have movement both vertical and hotizontaly with the keel structure. Therefore, as i saw that a lot of experienced members strongly stated at their logs that a good bulkhead assembly is very important later to have a nice model, i decided to take my time and put this bulkheads one by one with the help of a square rule to assure good horizontal square as
  8. Thank you very much @Jack12477 Best regards from Barcelona, Pascual.
  9. I understand you would have only a day and there are a lot of things to do in Barcelona, also i don't know if i would be in Barcelona in the time of your visit but, if possible, it woud be a pleassure to meet with you. If you send me a private with a little advance we can try to meet and share a coffe ( but perhaps in summer it would be better to share a beer). Best regards from Barcelona, Pascual
  10. That are really good news for begginers like me. I though i can only dream about building something like this until a few years of hard learning. I will follow your progress with even more interest than before. Best regards from Barcelona, Pascual
  11. 2.- The Kit This is a quite old kit from Artesania Latina that i have had on the shelf for more that 15 years as i received it as a gift a long time ago. Scale is 1:25 and it seems to do not be very difficult except from the sails that seems to have to be sewing, even i didn't opened them at this stage, so i will handle it when i will need them for the build. A curious thing is that it seems to be for begginers as some of the hull planks are already trimed. So let's see what we have got in the box:
  12. 1.- Presentation of the build. Hi everybody, Following the counsels of already members and moderators received in my presentation i will begin a ship build log for my first build. I have decided to begin with Palma Nova kit 1:25 scale from Manufacturer Artesania Latina as it seems to me the less challenging of the two kits i have got from a gift several years ago. The objectives are: - To learn as much as i can. - To improve my non-existent skills at the moment. - To have fun with the build. I will try to add and index of the

Thanks for your welcome: @bruce d @JJT @Mike_In_RI @Jim Lad @Ryland Craze @Kevin @Keith Black @mtaylor @Gus Martinez @ERS Rich @Edwardkenway @Mike from Aus @GrandpaPhil I will try to begin my buil log today, but as you can see until now i didn't have too much time for the model shipbuiling or the forum.
