San Francisco 2 by Garward - FINISHED - Artesania Latina

Recommended Posts

Model very popular among modellers. In Russia and Ukraine this kit was on sale in two options: "San Francisco II" and "San Francisco II +". In the last option according to the arrangement between AL and the Russian firm Melanija the boat and mast top were wooden type-setting, cut out by the laser from plywood. Here I provide the description of construction of a kit "San Francisco II +" with small alterations: props of gallery, helmstock, metal details of masts and rods of anchors are replaced with the wooden; gun trunks are blackened; sails from a set are replaced.

In a nose balsa inserts are established.

The caulking  of a deck flooring is executed by means of threads.

Fair planking - Sapelly interline interval, the hull is covered with karnauben wax and a colourless semi-glossy varnish of Tikkurila (Unik the Super uretan-alkid varnish with a sheeting from UF-radiation).

Details of the hull and deck details are established.

Good day Garward,

 

I am doing the same model but just began. I like the wooden mast tops versus the ones in my kit of metal. I might try to make my own when I get there.

How long have you been working on this model? She is beautiful.

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.
