I haven't put a build up for some while now - life get's in the way at times. But I've now ventured into slightly different craft to my usual style, it was the lines that interested me in this one. Firstly excuse the really bad photography - absolutely NOT my best subject. Everything was nicely packaged and it all seems to be there. The parts fit well with no play and the centre piece was straight. Decks also dropped in easily and sat flush to the bulkheads. Here however I started to have problems, looking at the fit here you'll notice that the deck projects past the last three bulkheads on the lower deck. The other side is perfect and the centre line matches the centre piece (sorry forgot to photo from above). I had to sort this out at the point of 1st planking. Instructions leave a bit to desire, plenty of photos but so small that detail is poor and without a large magnifying glass those of us with senior eyes have trouble working out what they are attempting to show.

Hello, I was reading through the build instructions for the Artesania Latina model "Sultan". I noticed that they suggest using a mixture of asphalt and solvent to dye the rubbing strakes. I can buy asphalt (bitumen) but it usually comes in 14kg buckets, and I anticipate needing a bit less than that. ;-) I don't want to use acrylic paints since I don't think it will produce the necessary look. I would greatly appreciate any ideas/suggestions on how to achieve a good result. Thanks in advance!
