Panart: San Felipe 1:75 Scale Build Log

This is the official first entry to the Build Log of the Panart's San Felipe at 1:75 Scale.

The model was ordered from Cornwall Model Boats early this morning (11/9/2016) and I must say that the person (lady) I spoke with over the phone was very nice, and pleasant to do business with. I just wanted to call to make sure all was well with my order. I was very impressed with CMB. By around noon, I was already getting shipping transactions notifications and tracking numbers !

I also ordered the Paint Set (Ref: APS9105W). It is made up of 11 jars. I thought about adding the sails, but I decided not to at this time.

Since my sails will be furled, and doesn't require all the sail material (it would be too bulky), I might try my hand at making my own. Furling will not require the sails to be fully made anyway.

The Log will most likely start about last week of December 2016. I look forward to everyone following along.

Enjoy !
Donnie

I am too. Even though mine is 1:50 scale, I will be watching to see what your research and method comes up with.

I came today. 7:50 PM CST November 14, 2016. It took about one week from the UK at Cornwall Model Boats. It was boxed in a box. Contents looked good and secure of what I could tell. I did not want to dig into it, but just lifted the lid so I could see that the paint set was in it.

Yes, the paint set was wrapped in a separate clear bag stuffed in the corner inside the box. The outer box didn't have a ding anywhere. Nicely taken care of across the seas (or plane ride most likely) !

Yes, of course, I am so tempted to take a longer look, but I don't want to spoil it for myself. I can wait 'till Christmas. I know, everyone is standing around saying let me, let me have it - I 'll get into it now !!!

Christmas.........well, not too long a wait ;-) gonna be a gut wrencher........to be sure! I have to pat myself on the back.......I've had the Sergal Thermopylae in the closet since last Christmas, and I haven't gotten into it {just to take pictures of the kit contents}. I also got some photo etch for it from Cornwall boats.......I believe they have some for this kit too. once I can get out from under all these projects, then I can start it. :D

I'll look forward to your mak'in sawdust! :greetings-clapyellow:

Beautiful ship Donnie. Didn't take long to get it either. That's a plus! I went to their site, very reasonable prices and excellent selection of models.
I happen to make the mistake of looking it over really good. Mantua's 74 gun Le Supurbe really caught my eye.
Christmas eh? That will be torture, as least it would be for me.
