Amerigo Vespucci by Johnn18 - Mantua - 1:100 scale

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have managed to find a bit of time to start off my build log. I started the build about 6 weeks ago or so, I took a few pics of the model as it stands at the moment. Sorry about the quality, they were taken on my mobile in my garage. I have started on making some of the cabins etc and will update hopefully on a regular basis.

Not too many build logs you see of this ship. Great start.

What material is that hull made out of?

Regards, Scott

Looks like you are off to a great start with your Amerigo.  I'm having challenges right away on my 1:84 Mantua kit: The slots in the rib bracing don't match the spacing for the ribs set by the keel, so I'm fabricating new bracing. Best wishes and keep posting! JXT
