Revell 1/350 Amerigo Vespucci
December 1, 2014 in Ships
I found this model in a garage sale and immediately went back to my memories as a child in the ’80: Sail Amsterdam, Sail Rotterdam, Sail Antwerp… The Amerigo always was a sight to be seen. I also visited the ship a couple of times during those Sail – days, after one hour queing up… See picture.
My modeling skills are seriously hampered by lack of time: busy life and other big hobbies like modeling trains, my real boat (avatar) etc. so the model and the base are a bit simple but I had lots and lots of fun with constructing it.
Difficult things: the white hull decals, the very thin masts and the sloops.
Next time I’ll post better pictures but lack of time…
Great end-of-year modeling days to everyone! And a lot of models underneath the christmas tree…
