San Felipe by Sherry – Scale 1:96 (First Scratch Build)

Recommended Posts

Sjors: Thank-you! I always l-o-v-e the cottage. ;) 
Thanks for looking after the popcorn machine. I will have internet at the cottage, so I will "check-in" once in a while.

Behave??? How does that work? :P  :P

 

Michael: Thank-you! I definitely will enjoy the break!

 

Grant: Thank-you as well! I know what you mean about the "rest" thing....hoping to find some of "it" at the cottage.   If I could discover a way to "can it" and sell it - I'd be wealthy!! 3d-canape.gif  ete.gif

 

John: Thank-you too! I'm just happy that I thought to add it in the beginning...it's not the kind of addition you can make later on, without difficulty.

Great looking lighting, and excellent work on the stern.

 

Good to know you also participate in that great tradition of going north to feed mosquitos.

 

Where abouts do you call paradise? We're at the western edge of the Kawarthas, just off of hwy 35.

I'm 1.5 hrs from the Eastern edge of Algonquin Pk. My son and I frequently go interior camping at Traverse Lk., Achray Lk. and Sec Lk. Beautiful area that I get to use my cedar strip canoe. We were just getting ready to head out on the water when my son spotted this little fawn swimming toward us, obviously distressed, came within 5 feet of my son's outstretched hand! Unbelievable! Enjoy....Steve44360_487767183241_4687999_n.jpg

Tim: Thanks! I like the look of lights on a ship, so.........now there are lights. :)

 

Popeye: Thanks as well! Hopefully there's never a wiring malfunction and the "fireworks" become real!!! :o  :P

 

Andy: Thanks!
Sad part is, I don't have to go north to feed the mosquitos or blackflies. I'm just one of those people that seems to have a neon sign over my head that says "dinner's on - come and get it"!!! :huh: 
Our northern paradise is Tobermory. We have vacationed in the Kawarthas and it's beautiful too.

 

Steve: Algonquin Park is another beautiful part of our province....been there as well. Awwww - great shot of the fawn!

Hi Sherry, that little fawn is really cute.  They really are so much fun at that age and size.  I'm from far south Texas (near Mexico), and have seen many of them like this, some even can become pets.  Keep up the nice work on the ship.

I'm back!!!

 

Augie: Never caught a single fish...they must have been as hot as we were and couldn't bother biting. The fish you saw "rising" was only a mirage I guess :P ...the only thing rising was the temperature. :o  36 degrees Celsius (96.8 F)

 

Sjors: I wish that was our backyard! :D  Time to dust off the popcorn machine and set it up again.

 

Grant: It was idyllic...hated to leave there to come home to reality. I can't blame your Admiral...whenever I look at the pictures I want to go back!!!

Okay, now back to the shipyard :) - when I can steal a few minutes, I'll be continuing the second planking. Lots of other work to do, and of course I don't want to miss out on summer activities...it's far too short here. :(

Hi Sherry,

 

I'm new here at MSW and immediately stumbled over your building report. I think it's great that you try you at the San Felipe. It is a very nice ship, if it they ever was does not matter. I have built from 2004-2009 according to the plans of Lusci 1:60 scale. It was my first scratch. I then created my own drawings, as the Lusci plan was very inaccurate. Keep it up and it is a very nice ship. Here are a few pictures of my San Felipe.

 

Regards Kay

Kay: Thank-you! Beautiful job on your San Felipe - very clean and crisp!!! It will definitely be an inspiration for my build. Thank-you for the drawings as well.

 

Frank: Thank-you! I noticed a couple of lovely anchors on your build that would be right at home on my ship! :P  :D  :D

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
