Santa Maria 1492 by Katsumoto - Artesania Latina - scale 1:65

Recommended Posts

Yes, I can only agree with B.E. here Peter. I really like your modifications and am totally impressed that you do all this without power tools sir. 

Your anchor construction was first class, they look great. I wish you too a very peaceful Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Dear Dutch Colombus,

 

I wish you and your family merry Christmas and a happy new year.

 

And have a safe journey   to the  "Conquest of  Paradise". It happened 1492 and is still happening again and again.... like Ulysses and Ithaca, it always  happens what we choose to happen.

Thanks Wallace, I am looking forward on your planking job on your Victory! Don’t keep us waiting too long... 😉

 

Marry christmas to you and your family as well. May the new year be good and prosper for you!

My holiday schedule has cooled down a lot now Peter, thank you. I am actually heading out to the shipyard this morning to measure up and fit the garboard strakes, after that the real planking can go ahead and work can continue.

Katsumoto, you have so far built a model with so much detail she is absolutely perfect. You've made a famous ship come back to life. Truly great.

**Railings, Railings, Railings.....Rawhide!**

 

Mesdames et Messieurs - Salut! 

Within the Christmas spirit, I bring you a lean and mean update of the ship and I continued on the upper railings. Not much to say, just have a look!

Oh and for the keen observers, I did made a mistake on purpose. I'll explain later, but it is all intentional, but technicaly wrong! :)

Down the stairs we go...

 

a3e20dace5b4ff40db503595eaa247ae.jpg

 

I made a "thingy" for the windlass...to stop the thing when operating it.

Next....just look...

This is how AL want me to make it...

 

f8b332942abf382051c7f7e14ab04c43.jpg

 

So I like to continue the style and design I have chosen, so here we go, and oh....it will give me some issues later on when I need to start rigging the ship. But we will cross that bridge when we get there....

The line of the deck has a curve into it. I want to follow that curve for my railing. The top plank must be bend and thats an issue. It's better to use the spilling plank technique, but I do not have the proper lumber to do that trick. I need to soak, bend and pray it will hold!

 

Soaking first, just boiling water, nothing special.

Hi Kier,

 

thanks for your kind words Sir! The issue I was refering to, was the top of the railings. I have not a solution to tie the ropes to the fence like it is done on the picture below...if anyone has an idea, please let me know! 🙂

Thanks Steven!

 

A sharp knife, a sanding block and some glue does the job perfectly. I’m having fun building and changing her a bit more to my liking. 😉

thanks for stopping by!

**Stairs**

 

Hello Sir’s,

 

After seeing Patrick’s design in his last post, I have tried to find a way to construct this solution. Here is how I have done this.

Further along I made the stairs. So the handrails are the same wood, but a bit lighter. This wil darken up a bit after a while.

344e7cb50975df6745cfc969f79a5d21.jpg

 

I had to make a stair out of walnut because of the extra stairs I needed. This was not included in the kit, so had to make one.

e63318d385e5d1d5670a862f204bafd5.jpg

 

While working on the stairs and railings, I made a start with the deadeyes and chainplates.

That’s it for today Sir’s, more to come later this weekend. Have a nice day and see you hopefully soon!

I can only agree, just so precise and clean. A true inspiration sir. Your railing turned out very well, the water worked :) I like this model, it was this ship that got me interested in wooden model ships quite a few years ago. Your build sets the bar very high but it is certainly something to strive for :)

Thank you Sir. The Santa Maria got you into shipmodeling you say? What is it about this model that got your attention? I think you’ll do better with your Victory. 🙂

Amazing work as always.

Everytime you post more progress you show me something I want to incorporate into my own build. You are also setting a standard that I can only wish for!

 

Did the chainplates come with the kit? I will need to find some similar, the ones in the Pinta kit are poor in comparison..

Thanks Nikbud I am sure you will accomplish the same quality with your ship mate, she looks stunning. The chainplates comes with the kit. The solution to connect the deadeyes to the chainplates is of my own making. The kit provides rope to tie the lower deadeyes to the chainplates. I will only use rope on the upper deadeyes what makes sense ofcourse.

Pete, I started a thread in the general nautical discussion area called "What Got You Interested in Model Shipbuilding". If you take the time to hop over there and read my first entry you will have your answer sir.

**Chapter - Getting dressed**

 

Hello my friends,

 

Thank you for all your support, comments, likes and suggestions. It makes the journey so much better!

So, the last update for this year. 2018 is almost over and 2019 is knokking on the door.

In the mean time the shipyard is open and it's busy. I've been doing all kinds of things on the ship. More and more items are placed on the ship and it's almost like she's getting dressed.


To start I've placed the lower deadeyes on port side and used some veneer to cover the openings for the chainplates on the channel.

A swivel gun has been placed...

Next the remaining bases for the masts. Just found the last bit of scrap walnut to make two bases...

Hi Kier,

 

I didn’t stain the hull, it’s the natural colour of the walnut veneer provided with the kit. I like the colour too. 😉

You also a happy new year tomorrow. 🙂

Chees matey

.         the more I follow this build the more attracted I am getting of putting her on my list of ships. I have been away from my ship building for a while now as I have recently moved property which had a lot of work to do. Can't wait to get back into it. Although I would never be away from it, 

once into models boats, you don't leave. 

.        Thankyou again for your info.  She's looking great
