    Sorry to hear that SA is so difficult to get parts.I think for me the UK seems to be the best source of parts.The other thing in sourcing parts is to have others in my club needing part we make a list and order splitting the cost of shipping among us.
    It works but I would much rather go to a hobby shop and walk around.There may be specials showing up that don't list on line .O-WELL.

    You should try SA Rick - difficult to import parts & virtually Zero locally - nothing at all with lockdown as its not allowed - not even sure if the PO is working & Couriers only essential goods......

    Most of the parts I source come from the UK as we don't have many hobby shops in Canada that carry parts and if they do not what I look for .

    Correct Pete, 'The Little One'. Seems to be a simplified Starter kit?
    All Columbus' ships had nick names. E.g. NiΓ±a was really the Santa Clara.
    Pinta's real name seems to be 'lost at sea', but would have been Santa 'something' according to the tradition of the time.

    The second example is more comprehensive, and expensive, which corresponds more with Lea's hull.
    But I suspect that Lea's model was scratch built from whatever info was available in the twenties. No kits around then?
    1920 would have been the 300th anniversary of the Mayflower landing in The New world!
    Ooops! New orders just arrived from the Parks & Gardens Dept.πŸ’₯πŸ€•
    "Yes Ramona my love, coming Ramona my love!" πŸ€”
    Time to play 'Place the quote'!😁 CU later - I hope!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    H Lea - suggest you look at the Hobbies (Dereham) UK website - it might well have been one of their plans - been going a long time - think they still advertise some of the Columbus ship plans - been a while since I checked though. Worth a look in any event
