Ahoi from Basel Switzerland


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

Just a quick hello and introduction from my side: Living in Basel Switzerland, male 36y and just building my first full shipmodel - the San Francisco II of Artesania Latina. Its the old kit with single hull planking, right now I'm struggling with planking the bow neatly, clinker effect has already shown up. So probably I will bother you with some questions regarding that within the next days... (yepp I already read alot and studied your great planking tutorals - anyhow, the 2mm thick walnut stips dont want to be bent neatly flat onto all the bulkheads while simltaneously make a big arch around the apple like bow :-(...).


Previously build the San Francisco Cross Section of AL and the "Posto Combattimento" of Mantua Model. So some exeperience available but not with planking a round bow.

Looking forward to your hints and help


With kind regards from Basel

Gidday Andre and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

If possible can you start a build log.

Pictures, as the old saying goes, are worth a thousand words.

You have joined a great group of modellers who possess a vast amount of knowledge and expertise.

I would encourage you to ask questions when and if you experience difficulties.

I am looking forward to your posts and wish all the best in your endeavours.
