I saw that build I love the Mantua and Mamoli ships so I cant wait to see your build complete after looking at your kit and mine I wish I had bought the Mantua kit. I got the Latina very cheap so figured I'd have at it.I have the Mantua version Santa Maria under construction,check my signature for the build log,I am also looking forward to see your version.
Thanks ,but I made a lot of modifications and used different woods to build her,basicly almost scratch,I have ditched most of the kit content,especially the cheap and ugly plywood parts.The Mantua kit larger than the AL kit.I saw that build I love the Mantua and Mamoli ships so I cant wait to see your build complete after looking at your kit and mine I wish I had bought the Mantua kit.

Thank you Brother. I'm happy he isn't the type that wants to sit and watch, he's a doer for sure. He learns fast and at times seems to understand better then most adults I talk to almost like he is an old soul and lived many lives prior. He just knows stuff he shouldn't at 4 Years old and he takes to things very naturally.Nice planking there,but you have a good helper thou
LOL now that made my day a bit brighteror is it epicdoom by himself sanding ......
Good to see that you have already follower in your hobby
Thank you, I have a few years building under my belt. I try to get the planking as clean as possible it makes for a lot less work sanding. I do the best I can with it but Planking is my least favorite thing to do on a ship. I like doing the frame work for Plank on frame kits and rigging most of allVery neat planking, you are building this quickly,
Thank You for the complement. I like difficult and I don't know why, I just do. I work smart when I can, but that's not always an option. I love ships with a ton of rigging. Provided I get decent instructions and can find enough Pictures and Info on the rigging. I don't really find that job to difficult, but I also work with hundred + wire bundles in the some of the equipment I work on so I guess I'm just used to spaghetti.Most of modelers hate the rigging works - so you are a lucky guy
BTW: very good work -> looking forward to see your work on the second planking
