Cannon Fodder Posted March 3, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 3, 2014 This build is coming right on the heels of the Bounty Jolly Boat. I decided to go with the same maker, Artesania Latina, while I was not particularly impressed with their instructions it did leave me with some creative license in the end. I chose the Swift 1805 at 1:50 scale. I wanted increase in size and complexity, double planking and two masts. The following is the unboxing and contents. I noticed it was definitely bigger but not by much. Much bigger than this and I will need a bigger shipyard. Admiral?! Some nice selection of parts. I noted 167 parts on the part list. Here is a picture of the simplistic instructions. One picture of the completed step to be paired with a short two or three sentences on what to do. Make note here, never do they say how to do it. But that was this forum is for, and build logs! I really excited about the two little decks under the main deck, don't know what they might be call beyond a hold. The plans, nice, they say 1:1, big readable, I'll have to check to make sure they are 1:1. Long part list. Spar/mast lay out as well. A fair bit more rigging diagrams, but I have bought a reference for that since the Bounty had basically no guidance. And here are the wood bits and pieces. Comes with sails. And a base and mounts. (Still trying to figure out the base for the Jolly Boat) Aussie048, GuntherMT, PopJack and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
