Battleship Pelayo Paper Model

The battleship Pelayo served the Spanish Crown for 37 years. Built in France in 1888, the ship was finally scrapped in 1925. Named for the founder of the kingdom of Asturias, Pelayo had her main and secondary armament mounted in rotating, open-topped barbettes, with numerous other weapons and torpedo tubes. The ship underwent many changes of armament during her long service life. Considered too slow, and with too small a coal-bunkering capacity, toserve abroad, Palayo served out her career as a home-waters defense ship, the most powerfully-armed armored warship in the Spanish Armada (Navy). Palayo fired her guns in anger only once, at Moroccan insurgents in 1909.

HeinkelModels presents a highly-detailed, full-hull paper model of Pelayo in her prime. In 1/200 scale,the model features detailed fittings and deck furniture, a complete complement of ships boats, and detailed gun barbettes and armament.

Paper Model Details: 22-page PDF download. One page of ship history, 7 pages of construction diagrams, approx. 818 parts. Degree of Difficulty: 5/5.

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.
