San Francisco 2 by Ashen - Artesania Latina - 1:90 Galleon

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I've been lurking while building my San Francisco 2 over the last few months and decided to join model ship world! I haven't posted what everyone else has com to the same point as me, rather I'll post a few images showing a couple of differences I've made early on.

 

My first major change was removing the midship bulkhead going up to the deck and making it look like San Francisco 1, I thought this looked more authentic. Secondly I created staggard planking system, stopping and starting at certain frames instead of the full length stringers. This seemed to work well and used us far less planks than supplied (which was limited). hopefully this will look ok. See a few pictures below (I'm not sure how the attaching pictures work yet!)

I'm up to the stage of drill holes into the hull, putting on the rubbing strakes and attaching the balconies etc.; I'll be updating from this point on. I've attached a couple of pictures of where I am at the moment.

Happy modelling,

Hi Ashen

 

Very neat work!  I like the bulkhead modification! (Wish I could go back and change mine...)

Hello Ashen,

 

As you know by lurking there are a bunch of us doing the SF II. Yours is coming along nicely and I too like the modifications.

Welcome aboard.

G"day ashen, your Galleon is looking good. I notice you are using quickset glue. I've never seen this one,what is it like to use?, and what is the setting time?

G'day Mathewp,

 

The workable dry time is  about an 1 hour depending on the temperature, 12 to 24 hours for it to completely harden. I've had no problems with the glue, but it doesn't create a colour like other glues so you know where you have been. I found that this glue allowed me to complete the planking in fewer sessions, therefore an overall quicker planking time.

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.
