Renewed Santa Maria Caravel Model: More Details, Consistency and Lightness (II)

The previous post announced one of the magnificent novelties on Artesanía Latina stock. The renewed Santa Maria Ship Model at 1/65 scale. We now continue with our modelers explanation about how the design and construction process of this fantastic naval replica has been. We also talk about the great improvements in the decoration of the same, keep reading!

In relation to this, an inconvenience that was present in the old model of this replica and that produced headaches to our model friends has been solved. “The mainmast of the ship has been made deeper to improve its grip. The deck hole where the mast was did not fit completely, a defect that was already completely corrected”, says.

Our team adds the following: “We have modified the mainmast platform by implementing its design with photo-etched. All the platforms have been divided into several parts for the enjoyment of the modeler during the assembly and to provide greater realism to the model”.

IMPROVEMENTS ON THE DECORATION OF THE CARAVEL MODEL

During the redesigning process in 3D of Santa Maria Ship Model, after the advice of the modelers, several improvements have been made regarding the decoration and details of this model.

One of the first measures adopted was the inclusion of a lifeboat that could be built with frames and hull lining in wood. We suppressed the precedent that was made of die-cast in one part”, explains Artesania Latina team. They also add that “this way, the modeler’s experience with the ship miniature is more satisfying and fun. In addition to the fact that in the 15th century there was no type of boat made of metal”.

Another improved detail is the introduction of supports for the barrels and more realistic cannons -with their bullets-. On the new version of the famous ship they have been divided into two parts. “The gun carriage is made of wood while the cane, in metal”, concrete our professionals.

Likewise, the colors of the rubbing strikes, the handrails, the stern window doors and the shields, among other accessories, have also been changed to provide a beautiful decorative touch to the boat that sailed the Atlantic more than five centuries ago.

One of the modelers states that “we have redesigned the false keel, the frames and the decks of the ship. It is one of the biggest novelties not having to use nails to be able to build them, they are only used in some details”.

Precisely, speaking about the decks of the Santa Maria Caravel renewed wooden model, the 3D designer emphasizes that “the system of tabs of the frames has been improved, implanting a greater number of these to implement it, because it did not cover 100% all the parts in the previous version, it was necessary to facilitate, for example, the fitting of its ends and for a perfect alignment without leaving any more loose part”.

Messerschmitt BF109G Fighter Model: Aircraft Modeling Revolution (II)

Our modelers continue with the second part of the post about the premium scale model of the famous German Messerschmitt BF109G fighter. They add that “the structure of the fuselage has been reinforced as a grid as on the tail. Then, we give a great strength, firmness and longevity to the BF109G model. In this way, lovers of aircraft modeling who assemble this replica will see that many parts are fully coupled. That is because it has tabs and grooves that almost make the use of glue unnecessary.

One of the fabulous features of the Messerschmitt BF109G, German fighter metal and plastic model is the inclusion of an electronic system for the propeller movement and for the LED position and existing control panel in the cabin. According to Artesania Latina’s team, this design work has been quite difficult because “it has been necessary to introduce the entire electrical system inside the tank with a ‘L’ form, which is located just below the pilot seat.”

In addition, for the wiring to be quite imperceptible, “the arrangement of the cable has been taken care of in detail, because a grayish color similar to steel has been chosen and it has been arranged in parallel to the wing grids and the fuselage”, says one of our experts. Precisely, the metal parts to build these area and the rest of the structure come in stainless steel photo-etched and injected die-cast.

FAITHFUL REPLICA WITH GREAT REALISM: MESSERSCHMITT BF109G MODEL

Impressive its great realism! It has mobile parts, such as its manual retractable landing gears; its practicable cockpit dome; and its practicable ailerons, flaps and rudder.

Ship Modeling & Model Aircrafts. The Legacy of Building Wooden Models

Modelers have realized how children and parents hobbies have changed during the last two decades after the arrival of new technologies. Many of them and their younger relatives have decided to keep alive as a legacy one of the most beneficial and comforting hobbies. Ship modeling and model aircrafts are the perfect choice. Building wooden model ships, aircrafts, trains and other vehicles like the Stage Coach 1848 from the Wild & Far West you will enjoy a lot.

Ship modeling. Wooden Ship Model Swedish Vasa 1/65
It’s a hundred-year-old entertainment that brings health and satisfaction to modelers –and some good headaches to solve-. You can always find time to take a break and park on the fabulous worlds of ship modeling and aircrafts.

This balance occurs when a wooden model ship like the Viking is built. Firstly, because it is a renewed classic scale model aimed at the beginner friends of Artesania Latina for its great appeal – a boat present on famous tv series from that population -. Secondly, due to its reedited assembly instructions with video tutorials on DVD. In conclusion, construction games and use of digital devices come together in a perfect fusion because the modeler builds handly and watches the guide on the computer. In other words, tradition and modernity at the same time.

NEW GENERATIONS RESTART THEIR PARENTS SHIP MODELING & AIRCFRATS TRADITION

The children and grandchildren of modelers come to a moment in their lives that they want to continue the modeling hobby of their parents and ancestors. That’s because this way let to feel them closer when they still live with us, by continuously sharing gossip about this hobby. It also happens when they have left them, because they are remembered and they are more present in our world. They are carrying on with this beautiful legacy deposited in their hearts by naval modeling, by aircraft modeling or by railway modeling, among others.

Artesania Latina encourages all its friends to share multimedia contents of the models on social networks. You can also do it on those of our firm (Facebook, Instagram and Youtube). Continue requesting instructions, plans or missing or broken parts for their elderly parents or for yourself. Request us what you need if you want to finish an scale model, unfinished by your parents.

SHIP MODELING AND AICRAFTS REPORT PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH TO MODELERS

Construction toys, present of course in modeling in the form of scale models, are ideal for improving the health and psyche of old and young people. Physically, their assembly increases motor skills and coordination in the hands and fingers because the modeler must be skillful and precise in the placement of the piece and must manipulate many parts that are even very tiny. Some studies also claim that vision improves because the model maker discards different shades of the same color.

In the psychological field, it gives us relaxation, serenity and concentration by having to work a lot with detail. It is, in short, an unbeatable barrier against Alzheimer illness. It develops cognitive skills that facilitate analysis, comprehension, understanding the space in which one the modeler works, reading and mathematics.

The logical reasoning is enriched as the model maker has to build an exact copy of a wooden ship model or a wooden and metal airplane model. You must plan in advance the assembly phases of the scale model and determine what order to carry them out: logically, to place the masts, first you have to build the ship’s hull, or to install the cabin you have to finish the aircraft structure before. What about the great self-esteem that is gained when, after a great effort and passion, the replica is finished for exhibition.

In short, all these benefits are a good excuse for the little ones to enter in modeling world. It is a hobby that is passed from generation to generation as part of oldest modelers genetics, who wish it survives thanks to their descendants.Ship modeling. Wooden Ship Model Arab Dhow Sultan 1/85

CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE & ADULTS, PRESENT & FUTURE OF THE SHIP MODELING AND AIRCRAFTS

Artesania Latina instills a passion for building scale models also to the youngest with its Art&Kids collection, aimed at children over 8 years old. These modeling kits of wooden vehicles include water-based paints, glue suitable for use by minors, a brush and stickers. Easy to assemble, these models for children are the perfect reason for parents and their girls and boys to spend personal moments together.

It is the best time for the legacy of the hobby to be impregnated in children when their brains are still developing. Firstly, they have fun playing while they are building models. Secondly, the practice of modeling can remain in their lives. it will be of great use for the health knowing all the positive things that this hobby offers.

The Art&Kids Collection catalog, focused on children from 8 years old, has the following wooden models for construction: classic ships such as the Pirate, the Viking called Drakkar, the Egyptian Cleopatra and the Roman Galley Ave Caesar; fighter airplanes such as the Sopwith Camel biplane and the Fokker Dr. I triplane, both from World War I; and four-wheelers such as the well-known Surfer’s Van.Art&Kids Collection.

Sopwith Camel 1/16 Aircraft Model: Jewel of Modeling Creation

One of the most beautiful models of the market is already on sale on the web and at your usual modeling shop. The model of the British biplane of World War I and the most famous in the history, Sopwith Camel. Its scale is 1/16, this wonderful aircraft model Sopwith Camel has been created after a process of just over a year. Our 3D designers and our experienced modellers have participated.Aircraft Model Sopwith Camel 1/16.

If you want to know a little bit more how we got to the final result of this artwork of aerial modeling, it is interesting that you read the curiosities of the whole process from the beginning.

Back in the summer of 2017, the management of the company, 3D designers and modelers decide that the Royal Flying Corps plane is the next jewel of the aircraft modeling that is made available to our demanding clientele, we mean, our dear friends.

Aircraft Model Sopwith Camel 1/16.

THE BEGINNING OF MODEL CREATION: SOPWITH CAMEL DESIGN ON 3D

One of our 3D design professionals takes the baton to proceed with the creation of the model digitally. To do this, we divide the process into two clear stages:

_DSC7142

First phase, during the first two months, in which is dedicated to modeling the shape of the different pieces on 3D in detail. In this way, little by little she is creating in her computer and with specialized software each of the parts on an organized way. That means if she starts to design the tail of the plane, until that part ends, she does not start with another.

Second phase, in which this design is adapted and modified to the assembly process. Once different related pieces are finished, it prints them in 3D or cuts according to the material in order to be able to verify the right assembly.

The priority of Artesanía Latina is always to try to achieve the greatest comfort of our model friends when it comes to assembling the scale model. If any part does not fit properly, the 3D designer makes the appropriate modifications until the correct adjustment of the element.

POWERFUL MACHINERY FOR CREATING MODELS

In order to physically check the digitally created parts, our offices have the latest generation of machines. On the one hand, the laser cutter, which took a total of about 1 hour to cut all the pieces of wood. On the other, a 3D printer with which the resin (plastic) is printed. Already at our factory, we have the necessary machinery to manufacture die cast and photo-etched parts. So, finally, we have three manufacturing means for this jewel of model building.

Of course, all the rectifications that have to be made on the aircraft model Sopwith Camel original design are carried out so that when the final design is sent to the factory, the product will go out optimally.

The work of 3D design for modeling is arduous, logically, and you have to be prepared for it. What means the process that has pleased our designer has been the creation of the wings of the scale model.Thanks to the size of them, you can see the inclination of these perfectly so the wings are beautiful. The length of the wings makes a great contrast with the body of the plane”, she says.

BIGGEST CHALLENGES ON THE MODEL DESIGN PROCESS

The biggest difficulty that has been encountered during the design process of this luxury modeling kit has been “to organize the large eight-centimeter engine of the airplane. Create it with its various parts so that it could be introduced in the model once it is finished. There are numerous parts that are placed on the same axis to be one of the last steps during its construction”. So, finally, “to facilitate – she continues – the assembly of the engine we have decided to divide it in two”.

Screen Shot 2018-10-17 at 15.29.22

Anecdotally, she tells us smiling that “the shape of one of the cylinders of the engine is very similar to the face of an owl”. So when you have our Sopwith Camel modeling kit at home, check it out for a smile.

The last step of the design is to send one of our expert modellers all the parts so that you start to verify that they fit each other.

BUILDING THE AIRCRAFT MODEL SOPWITH CAMEL BY THE EXPERT MODELLER

As we said before, the samples of the parts, once the 3D design of the aircraft model Sopwith Camel is finished, are taken by one of our modellers. He starts to assemble the model to the smallest detail. If the result is positive, it is sent to our factory.

Aircraft Model Sopwith Camel 1/16.

Once created, the factory returns them to our modeller as if they were a final customer. Target? Let our professional rebuild the scale model as if it were one of you. If there is a small detail that is not well prepared, that element is designed and sent to the factory with the modification made. The goal is there is no problem when you are building it.

For our beloved modeller who has assembled the Sopwith Camel 1/16 aircraft model, the most positive of his experience has been “the detailing of the interiors. The seat and the control panel are very well achieved. The engine, a true reflection of what was on the original plane, and like the machine guns, which are also very realistic”.

RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE MODELER FOR ITS CONSTRUCTION

As a recommendation for all the modellers, ours suggests that, for the assembly of the wings, “the instructions of the modeling kit should be followed faithfully in order to avoid later inconveniences. Until the wings are completed with all the suspenders and reinforcements, they are weak”.

Imagen 7

In this way, our qualified professional urges the modellers to “the space of the work table is wide and free of obstacles. Then, you can manipulate the wings without colliding with another element that could spoil them, a fact that nobody wants”.

Our modeler considers that, as such, he must do an empathy job to put himself in the shoes of one of you while he is assembling the model. According to him, speaking of him as a professional and thinking of our client friends, “we should not let ourselves be carried away by the level that I hold in terms of modeling knowledge. We are guided according to their needs and expertise”.

Aircraft Model Sopwith Camel 1/16.

In conclusion, and as he says, “if you follow the advice and instructions, your experience will be satisfactory and you will not have an equal model in your showcase, it is an artwork”.
