Is looking great. Keep on going!
Hey Donnie, I look forward to watching your build. About sails, a man named Radek in the Czech republic will make sails at a very reasonable price. He also has some great blocks and rigging. Good sailing and fair winds. Doc.
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.
