Hi Bosco,

 

The page on how to post a log is here: 

The reason for Old Collingwood's question is probably that the section on kit logs is divided into time periods - starting with "up to and including 1500 AD' and working up from there to present time. Choose the one that's appropriate to your own build.

 

And welcome to MSW. I'd second OC's curiosity - what model are you building?

There's a completed Airfix Golden Hind build log which might be of use to you . . .

 

 

 

And if you put "Golden Hind" in the search bar (top right of the page) you'll find other builds - some non-Airfix kits, and at least one scratch build - they could be helpful in sorting out details. As you probably know, nobody knows what the ship really looked like. All the kits and reconstructions are "best guess" based on the information available from the time. You might in particular like to look at Backer's scratch build - a lot of valuable research information in that one (as well as a brilliantly realised model).

do I have to find a 3rd party host

 

Nope. In fact, we strongly discourage third party hosting. You can upload your photos here, insert them into your post, and resize them as necessary.

 

Cheers!
