Recommended Posts

Love it Peter! It became a very beautiful model.  Did you weathered the sails? The colour fits great.

Excellent work on the sails Peter, She looks fantastic, a real masterpiece.

You, Sir, have set a standard I can only wish I could emulate.

Best of luck with the rest of the rigging.

👍👍🧙‍♂️

I need all the luck I can get, so send it to me please. Thanks for the compliments sir!

I can only second what the others have already said Peter, very nicely done sir. That sail "trick" does lend a certain dynamic to the build I must say. 

Thanks Mark, I didn’t know the outcome before I started with the sails, so I’m pleased with the results so far.

Yes, I used the tea stain trick. Some love it, some don’t because tea has tannen into it and it can slowly deteriarate the fibers of the cloth of the sails. a ship I made years ago don’t show any damage on the sails whatsoever.

thank you my friend, also for the trigger to emulate wind into the sails.

Wow, looking really great with the sails on!

 

I grew up around Den Haag, but I haven’t been back to NL in awhile. Haven’t really used my Dutch much since!

**The final Chapter - Aesthetics over Function...**

 

Hello my friends,

Today I've finished the build of the Santa Maria. The journey has come to an end so to say and what a ride it has been. For me a big milestone because it's been a while since I've finished a model ship and just in time before the big move starts to our new home!

But, it's not the last update of this ship because I have to make a photoshoot by daylight what I will do first thing tomorrow!

 

But first, some work has to be done...so here we go!

I've ordered some new rope for the Santa Maria so I can continue with the rigging.

Next I turned to the pre-fabricated flags included with the kit. they are made of a synthetic fibre and they are hopeless....won't complement the model at all. I still need to use them in a sort of way. So eventually I came up with an "easy" solution. I used a woodstain for "ageing" the fabric and it worked!!

It's time to raise the flag(s) and set sail to the new world! Bon voyage!

Next update will be a complete shoot of the model, like I said earlier....stay tuned!

 

regards,
Peter

Dutch Colombous..  hip hip hura! She is a beauty! She is magnificent! Great work, fine model. 

 

You are at last almost ready to sail off to the new world.  Am anxiously staying tuned to see the final stage and your photographic skills.

 

I assume the last update will be the moment we light up the fire works....

Ps. I saw the amati model, not yours of AL and the sails  had red crosses on them. What about this model, it doesnt have any?

Thank you for the conplements. I decided not to go with red crosses on the sails, due historical vagueness about the truth of red crosses on the Santa Maria..

 - The End -

 

When I started with the build of this model, I had a specific goal in mind. I needed to finish this model within 8 months, it must be within budget (150USD) and I must enjoy the creative proces. I did all that so my mission is a succes!

During this build I've learned many things and I've enjoyed the building process very much, but I'm truly blessed with all the friends whom I met during this build. In particular I want to thank you guys, for all the nice comments, replies, questions and likes.  You made me feel special!

I really hope you guys and also girls liked my log and maybe helped you in a way for your own model! Sharing knowledge is what is all about I guess!

 

For my next project, you have to wait a few months. But stay tuned and we will meet again! 

 

Untill now, Bon Voyage Christopher Columbus!

I enjoyed the journey with you Peter (and I am sure it won't be the last one) and the end of it has bought us here to this wonderful model. In my eyes it is a masterpiece and is more than worthy of all this justifiable praise. You should be proud of yourself sir.

Meticulous work. Fine finish. A truly inspirational build.

 

I have what might be a silly question (please forgive if this was addressed somewhere in the middle and I missed it): Why no drain holes at the sides of the lower deck? (I think they are called scuppers).

Good question B, I did not make these holes due to the scale of the ship. They would be so tiny and also on the outside of the hull a real pain in the @$$ to make. So I choose to make the model without.
