  1. PILAR build thread... coming soon to a forum near here. Completed model gallery: https://modelshipworld.com/gallery/album/2157-hemingways-pilar-in-112/ Scratch built in 1:12 from photos and one original sales brochure.
  2. In 1988, at the age of 35, I bought the cross-section model kit of the Constitution from Mamoli, (which is still available). During a long illness at that time, I built the bulkhead, easily planked the 70mm length surface and carved the multi-deck furniture. I put it away at that stage, having returned to health and work. Admittedly, I was also intimidated by the rigging and mast/spar construction ahead. Over the years, I made sure to preserve the model, though not very delicately. I must have used good glue as I lost no parts or furniture. Now I'm 61 and returned to this Constitution a
  3. Its been awhile but I am finally back to building. I recently moved and I don't have a workplace anymore at the moment, just a foldable table setup outside. that's why I got this kit which don't require as much room and I can pack away after I am done building for the day. So far I have already finished the first planking. I didn't take to many pics but I ll add them in the next post.
  4. I had a build log of Pilar before the content was lost and wanted to repost the photos. Pilar was Ernest Hemingway’s faithful yacht, notorious for chasing big Marlin, Tuna and German u-boats. Many people call it The Pilar or El Pilar, but it is just Pilar. I posted a history of Pilar on the Nautical History Forum for those who are interested. The plans come with color photos The kit includes Lime, Ayous, Mansonia, Mukali & Sapele First step is to fix the bulkheads to the keel.
