What post Victor, I have several,
Best regards John,
I appreciate the welcome I received from "Shipsofscale". In the past, I have completed the "Friesland" by Amati. Now I am finishing the "Prins Willem" by Corel.
Hallo and welcome to our forum. We are happy, that you have found us.
Would like to see your models, either the finished ones and if you have an actual project, maybe in a building log,.
Have fun and happy modeling
My Dad worked for Newport News Drydock and Shipbuilding before WWll. He went in the Army as a 2nd Lt. A mechanical engineer by trade he served in ordnance. He retired after the war and went on to own several boatyards. Scraping barnacles and getting coated with copper paint was our family life. I love the sea. I love boats and ships. I have a large collection of models, both wooden and plastic.
I have this Kit also and will be using PVA for mine I will also be using Elmers Glue All and CA glue. let me explain the PVA is great for gluing paper but in my past use exp. isn't a rigid glue it tens to remain flexible when on paper. Elmers Glue All is also great on paper dries clear and is better suited for built up structure gluing then PVA. then We have CA glue that makes paper very rigid you will want that.
Yes this is the same from Shipyard i do have one question which i am unsure of is a easy peasy one what type of glue would i use i have been told Pva, Glue stick, or Uhu twist and glue putting onto card and using a toothpick to spread out, however i was thinking of ordering Pva glue, and small brushes and small spreaders to use what would you suggest
Thanks for the welcome. New to this game, built a couple of ships many years ago. Just starting on the Armed Pinnace! Novice +++

I know the Pinta is not a latin rigged vessel but is very similar to the Nina which was originally built as such. Hence the first question. Did you drafted your own plans? If you did I would like very much if there is a book of reference from which I can do the same for a latin rigged caravel.

May you have a great day, Mike.

Hi Argat1,
I used the book ‘The ships of Christopher Columbus’ by Xavier Pastor for the reference material for my drawing and build of the Pinta. You can search the web for lateen rigged ships and adapt what you find to the Pinta.
