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.

This was my first build ever and it’s completed. I started in March of 2020 and finished in June. Lots of free time with it being pandemic times. I did my best to trouble shoot on my own and got some help through YouTube videos. I’ll have lots of questions about rigging on the other two I’m currently building. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
