1/200 Spanish Armored Cruiser - Infanta Maria Teresa

Watermarked PDF

 Named for a Spanish princess, the Infanta Maria Teresa, was ordered in 1889 and her keel laid during the same year.  By August 1890, the armored cruiser was launched while work continued.  Completed in 1893, the Infanta Maria Teresa was placed into operational service as the flag ship of the Spanish Navy's 1st Squadron.  By 1898 at the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, the Infanta Maria Teresa engaged in combat only to be severely damaged.  In an attempt to save the ship, Vice Admiral Pascual Cervera y Topete ordered her beached near Santiago de Cuba, Cuba.  After the war, the US Navy attempted to put the Infanta Maria Teresa into service and tried towing her back to the US.  During the tow, the ship was caught in a storm and was lost as she sank between two reefs in the Bahamas.

This paper model builds the Infanta Maria Teresa as it would have appeared after completion in 1893 when put into operational service.  This model can be built as a full hull model or water-line model.

Paper Model Details: 17 pages containing over 550 parts including internal former structure, decking/cabin details, join strips, parts for turrets, parts for life boats, choice of full or water-line hull, display stand, 6 pages of instructional diagrams and rigging diagrams.  This model is a large file size for download at 75.7 MB.  Degree of Difficulty: 5/5 If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
