Ship Shape Posted July 30, 2014 Share #1 Posted July 30, 2014 (edited) Well, I'm back, yeppie........and again, I wade into the fray with a build. I was torn about work being done on a plastic kit, or a card kit I started a few months ago. The plastic kit is a very involved project and I just want to build to completion w/in a year if possible. So the card kit won out. And just what kit am I talking about.........a Shipyard 1/72 Santa Maria, all laser cut kit from Poland. For those in tha know, these are as complete a kit for a card model as one is going to find in one box. Comes w/everything one needs to build a truly wonderful vessel. This will be my 2nd time building one of their laser cut box kits, the 1st was a French Lugger and I will admit, I rushed the painting and I really did not care for the look after done. These kits come w/tube water base paint, of which I have since learned, is done in layers to achieve the desired look. I however will not go this route this time, but rather try something new, we will see how it pans out. These kits are not cheap, I believe I paid $140.00 USD f/this one from a dealer here in the US, Paper-Model Store.com, great guy to deal with. I also will use for the corrections the copy of Xavier Pastor's Anatomy of The Ship, The Ships of Christopher Columbus. Yes I know, photos............will come soon. Please feel free to ask or point out as you see the need and we all will learn from this build.
