Marina II by downeaster - Artesania Latina - Scale 1:50

Recommended Posts

This is my beginning of my build log of Marina II. I like working on working boats like this one. just completed my build of the mare nostrum another working boat by artesania latina. Looking forward to this build because the scale makes this boat bigger and have more details built on it.Thanks for stopping by my build log.post-1262-0-08875500-1419808979_thumb.jpgpost-1262-0-15095600-1419808990_thumb.jpgpost-1262-0-42883000-1419809003_thumb.jpgpost-1262-0-15148200-1419809017_thumb.jpg

Great start!! Fun kit. Am "kitbashing" mine to stand-off scale Northeastern (Deadliest Catch fame). By modifying wheelhouse and moving it forward and modifying stern (added some inches while sqaring it off) its coming out as a "reasonable facsimile".

Hull is finally ready for paint

This kit does not supply a display stand. Before I begin the painting of the hull..it needs a place to set and not directly on the workbench. I began work on a display stand I saw somewhere on the web. I enjoy challenging myself to building all my display stands and not using standard stands.

Some more sanding than either brown wash or stain to the stand.

Boat is in the stand and began working on all the deck fixtures. Enjoyed time on the hull but glad to be done. I been thinking about the idea of lighting my model.

Never done lighting but need to start planning for it now. Thanks for following...

Been awhile but got updated pics for my build. Alot of time been spent with sanding and painting. Enjoying this build and isn't that the reason we do this hobby. I believe the most important part of this hobby is having a comfortable chair...you will be spending alot of time in it. Thanks you checking in on my build.5a8caa879fbbe_DSC00540-Edited.jpg.32486177f32222f0fbaf8cf8f46a6cc1.jpg5a8caa9ce6da1_DSC00545-Edited.jpg.cdb12cf2d7d80108dd84cce7418e8133.jpg5a8caaa9e529e_DSC00547-Edited.jpg.cf365b533c84a0534f9e64847977a2b6.jpg5a8caabeb652f_DSC00548-Edited.jpg.bbed202fc21b63470a08f4d16e639aa6.jpg5a8caacbbf465_DSC00549-Edited.jpg.0e1769dfb8aad90085b3a8c29d0a0a63.jpg

I am a static model builder. This model can be radio controlled, there is room inside the hull for everything you need. This kit is made so the main cabin can be removed to access the inside of the hull. Hope this helps you... hof00. If you like pics of the space inside the hull, i will post.

With close inspection of the finished hull, I noticed two areas that planks opened up slightly. They were not really easy to see but they bothered me and I would not be happy with the finished model if I left it. The old saying you are your own worst judge on your models. 1910951383_DSC00561-Edited.jpg.25cdd0ac9de90a9cc1c7aaa93af9934a.jpg725882193_DSC00562-Edited.jpg.86841f6642718935a864228cb122ab63.jpg

sanding down then primed the hull again ....ready for paint

The end looks near but I am probably turning the half way point. Enjoying the build and hope you enjoy following.

she looks really nice...very clean and vivid colors :)    my first build was like that......I found that not cementing between the planks allowed the gaps to show up in a big way.   I have this model in my stash.......your log will make for great reference.

Yup, awesome clean build Chap!!

Hopefully I'll get a good as a result as yours!!

 

Same with "Popeye," I too have this kit languishing in my closet….

 

(I don't know quite how Popeye has the wherewithal to build so much at the same time, it's way beyond me.... 🙂)

 

Casting no aspersions….

 

Cheers....HOF.

Hi, not really my type of subject but seeing your work has really opened my eyes. Kit looks really well presented and they really knew how to pack all the parts onto that ply sheet didn't they.

 

Really in awe of your work and your stand is very impressive. Would also be nice in a diorama for when you are not sailing her.
