I'm retired and I'm recovering from prostate cancer. I don't go many places anymore so I stay up late and work on my models. It keeps depression away and no one bothers me. I live in Las Vegas a 24 hour town so any time is day time.

Mike

Ahoy Mates,
Here is an update of my build so far. I have had some minor setbacks sue to being clumsy, but I hope to make repairs and proceed soon.

Hi Mike, the base timber they supply, is it balsa or plywood? I hope your setbacks were to do with your model and not physical.
BTW Mike in your next post could you put a ruler along side the ship to give an idea of size, please.
Regards
Eric
P.S. Just remembered, when I was at boarding school and about ten years old we used to sing "Santa Maria" (in English AND Spanish), usually in history class. Now to this day, 52 years on, I still have no idea why the hell we had to sing that song because it had absolutely nothing to do with South Africa (where I grew up or was dragged up!). I matriculated in 1971 and realised that I knew more about the rest of the world than I did of South Africa, go figure!!

Hi Eric,
The pieces that make up the hull only are ply wood. I learned in Oregon where I grew up "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. :banana-rock: :banana-dance:

Hi Zoltan,

Ahoy Shipmates,
I have Taken a break from rigging my other project and picked up my little ship. I was unhappy with the way the sides turned out so I cut new patterns, glue them to my wood and cut out new ones. To my surprise I find they are not the same. I have been an aircraft mechanic most of my life. In aviation following the printed technical date was paramount. Enough whining now. I still in the sanding phase preparing the hull to be planked.

Hi Mike,
Nice little build. What is the overall length of her. Must be strain on the eyes. Look forward to the progression of this.
Cheers,
Roger.
