San Juan by Altima211 - Artesania Latina - Scale 1/90 - 16th century galleon - First wooden ship build

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This is my first build that I want to humbly present to you. My English is not so good, but I am able to understand all your comments. I will post a series of pictures of my work in progress. The ship has been tint with Saman waterbased tint and watersoluble varnish (Saman too) was used for protection and for clear coat. I tinted over varnish in multiple layers given more depth and opaque tints. I used CA glue (Bob Smith) and yellow wood glue (Lepage).

 

I tried to put some pictures, but the server gives me -200 error. So, I will do it gradually. Sorry if I previously put this site on his knee before dinner.

 

Thanks a lot for all the infos delivered by users on this forum. I Baldy had the idea to begin my project before read enough ! So, I had to corrected some mistakes from the beginning. So let me begin my my small workplace in my basement house.

Beautiful work. And your workshop area is so neat! How do you do it?

Hi Ragove,

 

Thanks for your comment. My work shop was made with 2 x 6 stud and a kind of plastic stuff purchased at Amazon  Roll over image to zoom in Hopkins 90164 2x4basics Work Bench and Shelving Storage System. Then I used and old office desk table top and some MDF. I also put a Vallejo paint container stand and made some shelves. I recuperated my old thing.

Thank you so much. It is a great project to me to learn the basic skill. I forgot to verify the symetry of the frame at the beginning, what a pain after that to correct it. The hull is a bit more profiled than required. A problem in the height proportion arise because of this and a non-squared issue appeared in the stem (see picture). Very difficult to install the bulwarks on the side of the upper deck too.

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.
