San Francisco section model

Recommended Posts

New builder here. I am building a sectional model of a Spanish Galleon of the Armada era. Basically a good kit with very comprehensive photographic instructions. However a lot of the sizes given are incorrect, some of the photos are distorted giving a wrong impression of size. I am enjoying the build never the less and have finished the hull and am now starting the rat line rigging. Would like to hear from anyone else building this model

Gidday Richard and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

What is the brand of the kit and name of the section you are building?

Initiate a search in the Build Log section for your kit, you may find the information you are looking for.

I would encourage you to ask questions when and if you are unsure of how to proceed.

The members here have a wealth of knowledge and expertise and most freely share with practical advice and tips.

I wish you all the best in your build,

Welcome to MSW.  Since you didn't say if its the San Francisco or the San Francisco2,  go to the link below and click on "wooden ships".  It will download a PDF of all the builds for wooden ship kits here on MSW.  There's a pile of San Francisco's listed.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
