Santa Maria by Sephirem - Artesania Latina - 1/65


Recommended Posts

I just started the Santa Maria by Al and figured I would start another build log. My computer blew up on me so I have to RMA my motherboard or else I would post pictures. :( As soon as I can though I will get pictures put up. In the mean time I had a question. I've tried searching through what pictures I could find of any that where building her but couldn't find many. Is the deck being attached to the bulkheads suppose to have a significant bow in the middle of it? To me it doesn't look right but I could be wrong. Hate to get far into the build only to find out it is wrong.

Greetings Tim

I've just had a good look around the build logs, and can only find one build log that may be of some help to you.

There is an Amati build of the Santa Maria 1/65 scale, which I believe is the same as yours. The builder is called. MKMOSSOP.

You could have a word with him, it costs nothing. Any way good luck, and enjoy your build. DAVID

Hi Sephiren. As there are no details of the actual Santa Maria we have to speculate using other known designs of ships of that period.

 

I put both a camber athwartships and a cant fore and aft. What does that mean? It represents a bow as you've noted going port to starboard and and a tilt upward from astern to the stem. All designed to shed water off the maindeck as fast as possible.

 

I've recently recovered the pics from my build log so I'll be putting together a selection to post on the completed kits gallery. In the meantime I'll be happy to help where I can.

I've had to make a trip up to the Northern 50. Gotta get the rest of our things from our Las Vegas home. Pick up ships for the shelf. Granddaughter wedding. We won't be home to Mazatlan for a least another 6 weeks. So until then all I can do is observe.

Edited upon examining your last pic more closely. I believe that that you have set the "bulwarks" too low. I think you'll find that the bottom edge of the profile should sit on the top of the maindeck line.

Smile, watching your log I'm eager to see how many mistakes I've made years ago. Still some dust on my build (at the beginning of rigging). I plan to watch again the movie 1492 with Gerard Depardieu and take a lot of pictures from the tv screen of the Santa Maria for my build. PS: Not yet restarted 'cause victory cross section ist so time consuming

 

Greetings

Thom

Very nice. Your decking looks great. I will be following this build. I have purchased all three kits about a year ago at 50% from a hobby store about a 1/2 mile from my home when they were going out of business. I also got the Titanic's Boat kit at the same time. Looking forward to watching your progress. :)
