  1. Having accidentally won a gold and silver at Telford for my models of Le Corsair and La Fauvette respectively, I thought I should try and get another sailing ship underway. I have chosen the Heller 1/75 kit of the Nina. The Nina was known as the Santa Clara prior to Columbus' voyage and according to some sources, the kit is closer to her in her pre-Columbus days. It appears she may have received a partial or whole new rig for the crossing of the Atlantic. Full size replicas of the ship vary in their rig. I have decided to keep the rig Heller suggest and will be trying to add quite a high level of detail to the model during the build. Please note that the build will be one that I drift in and out of between now and Telford 2020 which is the target for this build so updates will be intermittent in order to fit around some other builds I want to do/ complete over the coming year. I have already obtained a rigging set for the kit and have ordered some wooden grating material. Not having a proper lathe, turning up a horizontal capstan could be interesting but I have overcome harder problems than that in the past. Box art for starters: Martian
