Santa Lucia Sicillian Cargo Boat by AntonyUK - Panart - 1:30 scale

Hi.

This will be my next build.

I purchased the kit from https://www.rocrimodellismo.com/en/static-display-wooden-model-kits/1151-santa-lucia-sicilian-cargo-boat-wooden-assembly-kits-model-boats-and-sailing-vessel-mantua-model-panart-sergal.html

The reasons for this kit are the pleasing lines and simple construction.

Found some good information on the ship.

https://www.shipmodeling.ru/books/leudo  Language selection is in the top right corner.

Will post some pictures of the kit's contents tomorrow. 

At first glance the quality looks very good.

 

Regards Antony.

The instructions are in many languages and are easy to read. English is enclosed in a Grey box. As below.

The Barrels are OK BUT  I will make my own.  Blocks look Ok as do all the other bits.

The plywood is Pear faced and the laser work is Excellent. The first sheet is very thin with no cracks But with some laser burning.

Found a few interesting links on the style of boat.

Have checked the kit contents against the Parts list in the back on the instruction booklet. All there plus a few planking strips extra.

Will start on construction very soon.

 

Thanks for looking in.

Regards Antony.
