The Pinta keel at my shipyard was laid down on July 1, 2019.
This is my second scratch build. The USS Pennsylvania being my first. I thought I had started a build log on this site of this ship, but, I could not find one (it). So here are SEVERAL photos of it's progress. There are subtle differences in some of the photos as I changed things to accommodate future building. Like where I removed a bow support because the bow sprit would pass right through it. I took out the deck supports in the bulkheads because I decided I wanted to put the decks in individually. It would be easier to work on the lower deck without all of the deck ribs in the way.
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
Hello everyone! I'm Felipe, from Brazil, and this is my first log here, and also my first wooden model! It is "La Pinta", one of the three ships assigned to Columbus expedition, made by a small brazilian manufacturer that suits our needs for good quality kits, as its really hard to find kits from famous brands here.
