Certainly. But:
1) I want them all wood.
2) I want them to look very real to scale
3) I am a glutton for punishment :) ?
4) I am getting better at using a Mill ( I think ) ?
5) some ohh and ahh factor when I am done ?

Enjoy !

HI Paulv
I am doing this 'just in case' I do not like the ones that come in the box. I have not officially opened the contents. I only opened the box to see if the paint that I ordered was in the box and nothing looked damaged and I closed it back for Christmas time. This also just gives me something to do , just to see if I can do it. I see a lot of top notch ship builds out there that I know that folks must have made their own carriages. So, I just thought I would try.
this is a prototype and I will just wait and see - I am sure that the carriages that come in the box are going to be metal. When I built the Trinidad, they were metal and also the wheels and everything was one piece metal and looked really bad - I said that this was one thing that was going to do different this time around and have decent Carriages and Cannons.

This thread will be great to follow! I have the san felipe by panart myself on my shelf. I was thinking it might be next build after the black pearl.
Not only is it great to have another log to look at while building it. But its even better when it was done by a very good builder. I saw your other log about the santisima trinidad and that ship is just amazing!
Cant wait too see what your about to do with this kit!

Thank you everyone for your interest. In just a few days, I will be taking the lid off and doing a write up with Box pics and all.

I have the kit from china and it is very nice. Like the size of the ship. Comes with hundreds of instruction steps with photos of each step. I have a picture of the kit contents under my La Soleil Royal build.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Well, Finally !!!
The Grand Opening of "The Box" !
.
.
Everything is packaged really tight and neat. The first thing that I noticed is how thick the manual is. I only looked at a few pages and what seems to be all color photos - nicely done - a lot of time what put into the effort of design, packaging, and what seems to be a more reasonable effort of the company to help the modeler. Actually so much so, that in the unboxing, the deck sheeting is already scribed out with false deck planking markings at 50 / 50.
.
A lot of lazer cut parts. More than what I am used to. What I mean is the last ship (Trindad) did not have much lazer. Now, I am neither for it or against it. It does help out with having a completed build sooner (which I like), but at the other end, a little less hands on in making things. But, that is still ok with me.
.
I know it will go against the 'grain',,, no pun intended,,,but I might stick to what is given and build as required and not venture off. However, nice cannons and nice Carriages that are all wood and are to be built. I still might build my own carriages since I put so much effort into the design and prototype.
At least I will have something that I can say that I did my own.
.
The rigging line is packaged on those square plastic wafers. I hate those. Rigging line comes out with creases in them. Please use round tubes.
.
The only thing out of the entire kit was a very tiny piece of what seems to be part of the transom broken off the lazer cut - that will require at the time a little attention.
.
