This manifestation makes clear that it is an ideal miniature for those who want to start in naval modeling.
MODELER SENSATIONS AFTER JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO MODEL SHIP BUILDING
The ship modeler in charge of Juan Sebastian Elcano model project states that “it is very simple to build because the monohull is already assembled, and even brings all the bull eyes already made” to which Rodriguez adds that “the only thing that you must do is to paint in white the whole helmet, and then draw the waterline in order to paint in green the lower part of the helmet, being of course important the placement of the propeller and the anchor, then paint them too “.
Artesania Latina’s friends will enjoy a lot when they have Juan Sebastian Elcano’s and Esmeralda naval modeling kit on their hands, but according to our modeler, they will have fun on the rigging building process: “It is very entertaining to assemble because you have to create a beautiful swarm of threads with object to keep the sails and the five masts upright and balanced in their exact positions, besides that previously the poles must be measured, cut, dyed and varnished, however, the modeler do not suffer during their placement thanks to a very well explained instructions”, the professional of this hobby says.
Speaking about the school ship rigging majesty, you can see on the image below the large number of sails in its five masts and its beautiful arrangement, for which “it has been necessary a multitude of threads, and a required, conscientious and very funny work of ‘surgery’, especially, with the transversal threads”, the modeler is showing us delighted. If you want extra help, you have specific Micro Tools for Rigging, for sale separately.
MORE PHOTO-ETCHED DETAILS: FANTASTIC ELCANO AND EMERALD FIGUREHEADS
The modeler points out that “several of the decorative elements on the deck of the Juan Sebastian Elcano model have been improved, as is the case of the stairs, the handrails, the anchors, the folded rescue boats and, apart, the exhibition base plate”.
These details are “more realistic and can be manipulated – the modeler continues – because they are manufactured in photo-etched, except lifeboats, which are now turned wood, while in the previous Juan Sebastian Elcano scale model all these were manufactured in die-cast, so the appearance was much coarser and less trustworthy”, the professional says. Elcano and Esmeralda figureheads “are wonderful“, she exclaims.

HISTORIA DEL BUQUE ESCUELA JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO
In March 5th, 1927, dictator Miguel Primo de Rivera’s daughter, Carmen Primo de Rivera, launched Juan Sebastian Elcano school ship in Cadiz. Although the first name the boat received was Minerva, which is the goddess that appears in the figurehead, by Royal Decree in 1925, was renamed with its current name, after the owner of the shipyards, Horacio Echevarria, urged to Primo de Rivera to tell the monarch Alfonso XIII that he wanted it.
As a curiosity, its first trip was from Cadiz to Malaga with the king on board the ship. Then moved to Seville, through the Guadalquivir river, where an Ibero-American Exposition was held. It also passed through the Canary Islands and then went to Guipuzcoa, where it received the combat flag. In this trial period that lasted until 1928, always in Spanish waters, Juan Sebastian Elcano traveled 5,769 nautical miles in 57 trips, at an average speed of 4.2 knots.
Just after, it undertook its first instruction cruise around the world in the opposite direction that Elcano did in the past, starting from Cadiz on August 1st 1928, where it returned on May 29th 1929. Two midshipmen have provided more packaging and history to this vessel: King Juan Carlos I, in 1958; and his son and current monarch of the Kingdom of Spain, Felipe VI, in 1987.
FEATURES OF JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO TRAINING SHIP
Juan Sebastian Elcano vessel (and its Chilean brother Esmeralda) has the following measures: 4,452’’ in length and 3,704’’ without the bowsprit; 515.7’’ of breadth; 341.7’’ of depth; and 275.6’’ of draught and 1,917’’ of air draught. In this sense, its structure is distributed in four essential areas that are the Quarter Deck, the Forecastle, the Waist and the Poop. The back main mast, whose name is Asturias, is located on the Quarter Deck, a place where all the most relevant events tend to take place.
The two 1.45” (37 mm) cannons used for the salutes are on the Forecastle zone, where the bowsprit with the figurehead and where the workings are executed, without forgetting that just below are the lower decks, toilets and lockers. On the Waist we can meet the main front mast, called Almansa, and the foremast, called Blanca. What has been arranged in this part? The bridge, the radio and meteorological stations, the kitchen, the dining rooms, the operating room, the sick bay and the defeat rooms.
Speaking of its propulsion, Elcano has a total of 20 sails, covering a gigantic area of 3,151 square meters, however, it also has a diesel engine to be able to navigate with a power of 2,070 cv approximately, reaching speeds of up to 16.5 knots.

It was one of Artesania Latina scale models preferred by our modeling friends for decades. Now it will be again! Our team of 3D designers and modelers had the task of renovating the 1/65 scale HMS Endeavour ship model. They knew the importance of this faithful British naval replica. For all this, we are proud to present your new 2021 modeling kit, totally improved and adapted to the demands of these times.
The iconic British exploration and research vessel – formerly a coal boat – with which Captain James Cook discovered Australia can now be built again. The HMS Endeavour naval modeling kit, an 18th century boat, aimed at modelers with an intermediate skill level, can be assembled like the real ship at your own workshop. This is due to the fact that the actual construction system of the ship using false keel and frames is the one that has been adopted for the model itself.
The 1/65 scale wooden ship model of the HMS Endeavour has been completely redesigned. Our team has reliably relied on all the existing information about the ship. Target? Make the miniature as similar as possible to the ship that sailed the South Seas. Below we highlight all the improvements made, one by one.
HMS ENDEAVOUR SHIP MODEL: HIGH QUALITY LASER CUT WOOD PARTS WITH EASY LACE
The first thing any modeler looks at as soon as he opens a naval modeling kit is the quality of the wooden parts. The structure that holds the scale model firm is essential along with the parts that cover it.
Well, the parts of the HMS Endeavour ship model are made of high-quality birch and linden wood, as well as the seven oak veneers – to complete the hull – and, also, linden. All of them have been cut on a micron way and comply with that high standard that we propose in our product catalog. This is so because we use a very high precision laser so that, later, all the parts fit together perfectly. Almost effortless. It is as if they attract each other like a magnet.
Another great improvement is that the kit now includes “paper templates that, once positioned, greatly facilitate the marking and cutting of how many holes, slots and perimeter contours, among other actions, must be carried out,” says Artesania Latina team. They also adds that “it is not an easy task when it has to be done using other more rudimentary methods -such as those used on numerous occasions by other companies in the sector- that cause irreparable disruptions in the face of the final scale model finish”.
FINER AND MORE NUMEROUS PHOTO-ETCHED PARTS FOR THE NEW 1/65 HMS ENDEAVOUR SHIP MODEL
This new HMS Endeavour ship model has much more realistic finishes compared to the old one, now discontinued. Meticulousness would be the noun with which they have been thought and reflected in its photo-etched and die-cast details.
Its photo-etched plate contains parts that replace some of the previous model, now they are much finer and more elegant. But also other totally new ones, “thus helping the modeler during the assembly”, comment our modelers. Both types give spectacular finishes to this jewel of naval modeling.
Among others, the improvements made in photo-etched parts focus on the windows, base, horizontal capstan, chains, gratings and lifeboats.
The transom windows and the rear side windows -both before made of die cast opaque-, the skylight -before nonexistent- and the fishing lights now have a more elaborate design. They are very easy to assemble and allow the interior light to pass through different compartments and its transparent acetate.
PRE INSTALLATION FOR SPECTACULAR LED LIGHTING IN WINDOWS
On the new ship model of the British vessel HMS Endeavour we have developed a system for the pre-installation of LED lighting. “Small supports have been added in different rooms of the ship such as the aft cabins, under the skylight and inside the fishing lights”, the 3D designer specifies.
The modeler friend who wishes can attach LED lights in order to make the scale model of the ship comes to life.
If you want to illuminate your 1/65 scale ship model of HMS Endeavour, Artesania Latina offers you the possibility of acquiring the Set of LED Lightning for Scale Models and DIY Projects, not included in your naval modeling kit. This set has fixed lights and candle effect, battery holder and on / off switch to turn it on and off.
Also, don’t forget one last improvement in this regard! The base is prepared so that the modeler can choose between putting the photo-etched part with the nbota name on it or not putting it on if he prefers that the light passes through the name cut into one of the wooden stringers.
BETTER CAPSTANS, CHAINS, GRATINGS AND LIFEBOATS
As we mentioned in the previous section, Artesania Latina team has improved many other photo-etched parts on the HMS Endeavour ship model. This is the case, first, of the horizontal capstan, now much more stylized and easier to work with than with the previous model.
The fusion between photo-etched, wood and die-cast, together with the contrast of colors of the parts that compose it -red and black- with the veneer used on the floor, make this a truly beautiful set compared to what makes the competition.
Chains for the dead eyes are now made of photo-etched and it is presented on various sizes, thus resulting less arduous assembly for the modeler. The contrast of black colors –chains- and gold –links- “enhances the ship when a visual sweep is made along the entire side of the ship,” underlines our 3D Design team.
The gratings have been transformed into rooms, with photo-etched details both on the walls – trim plates – and on the ceiling -hinges-. Speaking of LED lighting, the battery holder is perfectly concealed under what was previously a grating. In this way, the modeler can access to the on / off switch whenever he wants, as well as change the batteries when they are exhausted.
The latest photo-etched improvements are the lifeboats. The modeler only has to choose and apply the appropriate paints on these to achieve an immense quality of finish.
