Zoltan

Nice going mate. You are doing the Santa Maria proud.

You and Mustafa are making me feel getting my partially completed Santa Maria and pull it apart and redo her.

She is a nice looking ship.

Cheers
Geoff

Hello Zoltan

Just catching up on your very fine build, I see that you have did a very nice job on building all of your stair casings, they sure look good. Nice work on your channels, the planking looks great, one question though, I hope that you pined them also and not rely on the glue alone. The rigging can put a strain on these and cause all sorts of problems if one or two should break away, just a thought, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence
