  1. Hello fellow modelers! This log is about my first ever model, the Bon Retour from Artesania Latina (AL). Even though this kit is designed as an entry level/beginner kit, i have found that it is NOT the case. I have read other posts commenting on how poor the instructions are, how blurry the photos in the instructions are and how little to nothing is explained about rigging. I can confirm it is true, so if youre looking for a kit to start, i wouldnt recommend this one. Try an easier kit, like "La Provençale", from Artesania Latina, or "Lancha del Capitán San Juan de Nepomuceno", als
  2. The much anticipated package arrived this morning! My goals for the morning were to unbox, inventory, and cut out the pieces for Step #1. (I've read Invictaag's build log about 4 or 5 times over the past two weeks, so feel comfortable with the instructions.

  4. Hello Fellow Builders, This build log is for the Bon Retour by Artesania Latina (AL). This kit is designated as an entry level / beginner kit and is reasonably priced at around $60. I have had the kit for about 2 years now while working on her a little here and there. Now that I am finally settled in after moving I can make some decent progress. Im motivated to finish the Bon Retour since I have two new kits waiting for me! For my birthday the girl friend got me the U.S. Independence from AL and I treated myself with the Armed Virginia Sloop from Model Shipways. I would gauge my expe
