  3. Artesanía Latina Bluenose II. Started May 10th 2020 Finished Sept 6th 2020. This is my third Build with Artesania Latina and really the first one that i have really taken my time with. With a little advice i went ahead and painted the hull of her actual colors but left the rest as the model showed for the wood. I like to stain my deck using minimax and in this case it was Ipswich Pine. I also used different wood for the deck vs the wood that came with the kit. Excellent Build.

  8. Hi Everyone, After completing a couple of 15.00 Amazon wooden models, i am sure we all know the ones. I Purchased the Virginia 1819. Long story short My Cardiologist suggested I find a hobby to help me relax. After a Week cruising around the New England Islands and visiting many maritime museums the idea came to me. "Why not a model Ship" Being my first "Real" Model, I did make a few mistakes. one big mistake. i used the deck wood for the hull and really did not figure this out until the hull was done. CRAP!!! then i found Model Ship World and thanks to all the Vi
  9. looking now and getting major help, thank you.
  10. hello, nice build, I am wondering do you have any additional instructions that came with your kit? I am getting a little confused on which pieces to use as the picture book shows of course the numbers and photo, the hull paper is pretty easy and the large book was little or no help when it came to the numbered pieces.
  11. Hello, so glad i found this forum. I haver started the Virginia 1819 from Artesania Latina and have now completed the bottom portion of the model. I am on page 22 of the picture instructions but i am getting a little lost when it comes it which pieces are which as the instructions only come with the paper sheet with the hull, the large book with little information on part numbers and the small picture book. does anyone have or know where to get additional information on what is what. I already goofed and used the thin strips and the hull only to rip them out and use the
