Greatings to everyone, I am very happy to be back in this forum again! All these years I have been admiring the magnificent work of the members. Here I'll post the built log of this old airfix kit which I was given by very good friend. The box is very old, 1970s packaging. Some paint traces on the hull from an old painting attempt, and some pieces of the original masts bend broken or missing. I know, a rather rough start. I'll attempt to built the kit and correct some of its problems while I am at it. I really love 17th century ships, and I really look forward for this built. Thank you!
Good Morning All, Normally, I would link to my Picasa album, but instead I think I will share the highlights and provide a link as well. As I mention over on my blog, this model is the one that finally got me into maritime historical research, way back in 1988. This is a link to my blog entry about the model and build - Building Airfix's "Santa Maria" And this is the link to my Picasa album - Airfix 1/384 "Santa Maria" Cheers, Robert
First ever sail ship. I usually stick to aircraft. I have built the Airfix Severn Class Lifeboat and the Airfix 1:350 HMS Illustrious and the Revell titanic 100th anniversary kit. But this is a first for me. I have started sail ships with the Airfix 1:400 Mary Rose which is still a WIP. Down to the topic, I have never built a sail ship before therefore any advice will be very much appreciated. I am not bothered that much about building it, I think the worse bit will be the rigging. And I've had this kit since Christmas and the rigging has been the only put off for me, so how shall I tackle the rigging? I will post progress pics here and on my facebook page. Thankyou for accepting my account. Dedicatedmodeller99
