  1. I just got this from amazon today and can't wait to get at it. The box was a little damaged and had been opened previously so I think it was a return. The contents were well packed and still in the original shrink wrap so I think it will be fine. I have only found a couple of build logs for this one and none of those were done to completion so I guess I am on my own on this one. I can already see quite a few changes/"improvements" that will make this an interesting build for me. As others have pointed out historical accuracy is not what this kit was made for. I will get
  2. This was my very first build. It is the original version of the San Francisco, not to be confused with the San Francisco II, there are slight differences, the main one being the hull which is double planked with basswood and Sapeli veneer, whereas the San Fran II is single planked with mahogany. I didn't like the gun carriages that came with the kit and with help from other members made my own which were more in keeping with the era of the ship. I also made changes to the rigging, the kit instructions, for me, were too simplified so I did a lot of research and added more accurate riggi
  3. I swore I wouldn't start building another kit before at least one of my other multi-year projects was finished, but I'm remodeling and so much more space opened up in my apartment for ship models, welp, we all know how that goes. Artesania Latinas Cross Section of the San Francisco in 1:50 scale is one of their older kits, meant to supplement the discontinued first edition of the San Francisco full model kit. Comparing the cross section to the new full model re-release, there's some noticeable differences between the ships, mainly regarding the placement of the gun ports. Side by s
  4. Hi everyone... this is my first attempt on ship modelling. I started the construction about three months ago. Unfortunately, the initial photos are loss. But I will try to keep my progress up to date and waiting for help and suggestions about everything...
  5. Today I received the san Francisco hull section kit the instructions look very nice as do the parts. The only thing so Farsi the planking, it is very thin so I may replace it. When I figure out how to add pictures I will.
  6. Well here goes nothin. Decided to brave a build log for my San Fran. My first ever build (John Alden sloop) was posted when finished. It may not have even been finished had it not been for another MSW member (rlb) who was gracious enough to re-post his pics after the the "great crash". Again, I thank you. I have questions (already...lol) about my SF so I thought it might be time to pick the brains of those in the know. In the pic below, I have arrows pointing to the area of the bulkheads that I am concerned will make the planking go awry. As you can see the blkhd (#s 4-7) does
