  1. Hi there. This is my first post on this forum so apologies for any missteps... From what I can see this is an Occre/Artesania Latina kit and it seems to be sort of a generic build as I haven't been able to locate any references to a ship that existed under this name. This is my second kit, the first one being a Mantua kit that was a disaster and I abandoned. I've never done any sort of woodworking or model work so this is all pretty new to me. I bought this kit back in December 2017 and have been working on it with small breaks since then. At the time of posting this I
  2. I unboxed and started on the Albatros this weekend, actually started a little early on Friday. Managed to get the bulkheads on and set at 90 angle. I also planked several pieces for future use. I received the kit as a present in 2011 and have now taken the leap to get at it. I had not noticed until fully unpacking the kit that there were no written instructions just a 7/8 picture guide. I know they say a picture is worth a thousand words but a little more specifics would be helpful. Does anyone know if OcCre has produced anything in recent years? I don’t see anything on there website that wou
  3. Hi, After a few clumpsy and failed attempts to build a kit as a teenager, I decided (ten years wiser) to jump give it a go to ship building again with Occre's Albatros. There is already good logs and videos on the kit around, but there are still a few unanswered questions for me. With this log I hope to get help answering them and, maybe, to help future beginners as well. Let's start with the tools: I started from scratch, getting the basic kit, the nail pusher, a cutting mat and some small clamps from Occre. Additionally I bought extra drill tips, larger clamps, w
  4. Hello, my first build and build log following along as I bang together the Albatros by OcCre. I've attempted to build two other models in the past but those ended in a pile of sawdust in the trash. This one I WILL finish. Quick kit information: ALBATROS - Built at the Baltimore shipyards in 1840, the Albatros was designed to defend our Atlantic coast. Her smooth, narrow hull and large sail area made her fast and easily maneuverable. Double plank-on-bulkhead Albatros kit by OcCre features laser-cut wooden parts. Accurately detailed fittings include boxwood blocks and deadeyes, bra
  5. As a kid I tried my best to finish a partially built Billings kit from H.M.S. Bounty that was given to me by an acquaintance who gave up in frustration. Being too young/inexperienced/impatient/much interested in 1:24 plastic car models, I never finished it either and got rid of the kit after many years. Somehow, this hobby got under my skin so I chose to pick it up again. Since I was overwhelmed by the technical skills that are required when working on the Bounty, I decided to make an easy start so I got myself the Albatros from Constructo. I am well aware this is not a very detailed model
  6. Hello to all, i, like many others lost my first log in the big collapse of the page. I post again a few pictures to show the progress. Now - after 2 winters, i'm almost ready. There are only a few litle jobs left and i still have 3 foresails to attach. It is very complicated to sew the bolt ropes on the sails. (This is not my favorite work.)But I love it to study the construction reports for hours. I'm glad that the page is back!! Regards from Germany Volker
  7. I've posted 2 videos on youtube of my build progress of a Constructo brand Albatros kit.If anyone would be interested in viewing them and leaving feedback here of what they think with any comments on anything I may be doing wrong etc. that would be greatly appreciated...thanks loads. Shawn
  8. This is my first build. I posted on the old site and will see what happens here.
