  5. Hi Crew, I met a fellow builder, He is moving out of his home and into an apartment.In an effort to raise money and make room (get rid of stuff) he's selling some of his old work.I bought two of them. he said they were junk. so I thought I would make any needed repairs, as I dug into the spider web and nicotine covered pieces, I found that it would be best to strip them down and refurbush them. They are not SIB's nor are they models. I guess they were (factory) made as decorative pieces. None the less, they are ships... So I will make an effort to make them Beautiful once again. One is a Galleon and the other a frigate. I'm new to the hobby, and I hope to learn alot.
  6. Hello mates! I was looking for information about,How are Portuguese Galleons different from other galleons? Anyone know? I know the sails have the cross of christ,(templers) outside of that I have no information. Thanks

    As you can see I have started with the Galleon,Well, to this point I have stripped her down filled cracks in her hull. And now I will begin sanding. she had no planking on her decks, should I add planking? Thanks for your advice.

    Please, give input. As you can I began bending planks on the galleon. Then I thought no. the deck must be flat. So I will start over. Thanks, Chief...

    Ok, I started one already (Galleon). I agree it will be fun.
