San Salvador by warship - CARD

Recommended Posts

Hi Chuck,


Thank you for replying my post.


This is a great kit, I like it a lot, so surprised that it can be built with paper.

I found this kit while surfing Model Ship World Forums:



and I think it is provided by Maritime Museum



One comment to this kit is rigging, I think it is simplify version of rigging for this kit, currently I'm trying to rigging it with wood pieces, but I don't have detail rigging info for San Salvador, what I can do is reference to those pictures took by people whom visited museum.


Last thing...regarding why I'm interested in San Salvador, I was living in California around 4 years. :bird-vi:

    Thanks.  After asking the question, I found the download on the Museum site.  I probably should have known it was there, since our club is affiliated with the Museum.  From what I hear, they will be launching San Salvador in September or October.


    Your model looks great!.

Tony, I downloaded this awhile back. Now I am able to see what it looks like. From what I have seen you are doing a bang up job. I have just started the Maine in card. The good thing is if you make a mistake you can redo it. Not to many times though unless you like to buy ink alot. Keep up the good work.

Hi Chuck, David,


Thank you.

If you are going to build it, I found that build instruction might has several typo.

1. page 5, figure 2, #34 should be a, b, c from top to down, instead of c, b, a.

2. page 7, figure 5, #22d should be #35

3. page 7, figure 5, #22, #23 is for the deck after main mast.


Besides, some parts are missing

1. part #27 missing two piece

2. part #37, #38 and #39 needs to print two copies for both top and bottom side.


and I installed #40 inside of freeboard between forecastle and quarter deck, since instructions doesn't mention about it.
