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.

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.

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”.

Use the paper templates for the new HMS Endeavour 1/65 ship model! (22520).

FINER AND MORE NUMEROUS PHOTO-ETCHED PARTS FOR THE NEW 1/65 HMS ENDEAVOUR  SHIP MODEL

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.

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.

WOODEN SHIP MODEL: CUTTY SARK TEA CLIPPER (22800)

The first proposal that we make of a naval modeling for experts kit is the wooden model ship of the well-known British tea clipper Cutty Sark, at 1/84 scale. It was one of the fastest vessels during the 19th century on its many voyages to the East. The Cutty Sark was dedicated in the early days after its launch in 1869 to the tea race. He tried to unite China and London in the shortest time possible for eight ‘tea seasons’. Later, he took on another role, in this case on the wool trade from Australia. Later he assumed the transport of goods between Porto, Rio de Janeiro, New Orleans, Lisbon and the Portuguese colonies. It was operational until 1954, the year in which it was decided to exhibit as a museum ship.

In 1787, the HMS Bounty left England for Tahiti to transport breadfruit trees to the Caribbean, encountering a great storm that forced them to change course, and to land and stay in Tahiti for several months.

One of the scale models most desired by Artesania Latina friends has returned in 2021 with a renewed appearance and many improvements. The new King of the Mississippi paddle steamer model in wood, 1/80 scale, is a jewel of naval modeling. Next, we are going to detail all the novelties that this fantastic and classic steamboat model incorporates.

Ship Model Building. Wooden Paddle Steamer Model Renewed King of the Mississippi 1/80 (20515).

The 3D redesign and assembly process has been painstakingly developed over months by Artesania Latina designers and modelers. In this way, the miniature replica of the King of the Mississippi can be built very pleasantly.

Ship Model Building. Wooden Paddle Steamer Model Renewed King of the Mississippi 1/80 (20515).

FUNNY AND PRECISE ASSEMBLY OF WOODEN PADDLE STEAMER MODEL

Among the improvements made, excellent step-by-step color instructions have been created, more elaborate than ever, in DVD format. The objective is that the assembly made by the modeler is enjoyable and precise. The construction process of this wooden paddle steamer model is explained in detail without any doubt. In this sense, 240 digital pages with hundreds and hundreds of photos accompanied by their explanatory captions support this fact.

We cannot forget the numerous online video-tutorials that the modeler can find on our official YouTube channel. They will also save you from any possible trouble. Artesania Latina professionals have made a great effort for the modeler to enjoy naval modeling.

On the other hand, this impressive modeling kit is designed to the millimeter so that the parts fit together perfectly. So, once it’s built, it will look the way it deserves. All parts of hardwoods such as birch and linden are cut by high precision laser. It contains 8 board sheets! The parts of this wooden paddle steamer model are fully assembled. They fit easily in their right, concrete place, thus avoiding headaches.

PHOTO-ETCHED PADDLE STEAMER MODEL: MORE UNITS AND MORE DETAILED PARTS!

The King of the Mississippi paddle steamer model has also been extensively revamped in terms of photoe-etched parts. “This new scale model includes many more photo-etched parts, and much more detailed than the ones that belonged to the old model”, assures Artesania Latina designer, who adds that “windows, door windows, capitals, railings, decorative ribbon of the service chamber rof and stairs”. Contains 2 large photo-etched sheets (11.57” x 6.14” and 10.12” x 4.80”) with never seen before die-cast and brass decoration details.

We start with the windows, which were previously opaque die-cast, and the windows in the doors. “They all now have a more elaborate design, are very easy to assemble and allow light to pass into the different compartments through the transparent acetate”, underlines the professional.

We continue with the ribbon that adorns the ceiling of the service chamber, the exterior railings and the capitals. They have been made much more stylized than the previous ones. The contrast of colors of these parts in white with the colors, dyes and varnishes used on floors and walls of the rest of the ship is spectacular.

PHOTO-ETCHED DETAILS OF THE NEW STAIRS AND CAPTAIN’S CAB

Finally, the new photo-etched stairs of this 1/80 scale model “have been very popular”, according to the modeling friends who have had the kit in their hands. Compared to the old ones, their design is now much more delicate and they are easier to assemble. “Putting special care in painting, gluing and building the photo-etched – which makes up the railings – with the steps and handrails, the result obtained is simply extraordinary”, exclaims the designer. As it stands on the prow of the new King of the Mississippi wooden paddle steamer model, it stands out to the first-time appreciator. It’s a great cover letter!

PRE-INSTALLATION TO ILLUMINATE THE MODEL WITH LED LIGHTS

One of the pleasant surprises of this beautiful wooden paddle steamer model is the improvement that has been made so that it has light, shine with its own light. “Small supports have been added in different compartments so that the modeler who wishes can add LED lights and bring to life the scale model of the King of the Mississippi,” explains our 3D designer.

As an informative note, Artesania Latina has, for sale separately, a Set of LED Lights with switch and battery holder, which allows you to play with the effect generated by the fixed lights or the candle effect. It looks like this, impressive!

IMPROVEMENTS OF FUNNELS AND TURBINE, NOW MOBILE!

Other improvements applied to the new King of the Mississippi paddle steamer model made of wood are the funnels and the turbine. As for the former, the scale model has been designed so that if the modeler wants he can, on his own, make the funnels emit smoke. They are hollow.

Find an electronic smoke dispenser – not included in this modeling kit – and attach it to the steamboat model. As the service chamber is ‘detachable’, whenever it deems appropriate it will be able to access the interior of the cabin. There the bases of the funnels are housed to recharge the liquid tank that creates the smoke.

And what about the dazzling new mobile turbine, a dream come true! Our team greatly appreciated the ability to move the blades to recreate the motion of the turbine that pushes the real ship. Thought, planned and done. A system was devised that “allows a small engine to be attached to the stern wall and transmit power to the turbine by means of a rubber band and a pulley”, points out the model maker of the project.

Ship Model Building. Motor of Wooden Paddle Steamer Model Renewed King of the Mississippi 1/80 (20515).

The entire set of aft wall + turbine supports + turbine is practicable. The modeler can thus access the interior and make adjustments to the motor or the rubber band. Should the rubber wear out in the distant future, it could be changed even when the model is finished. The Motion Motor Set will be available for separate sale soon.

BUILD THIS GREAT WOODEN PADDLE STEAMER MODEL

Seeing that our King of the Mississippi paddle steamer model made of wood has movement in its blades, light in different compartments and smoke coming out of the funnels will leave you totally speechless. In addition, its large dimensions, once built, also help to do this: 25.98” (660 mm) length, 11.81” (300 mm) height and 5.11” (130 mm) width. The modeling kit includes adhesive fabric flags and pedestal with nameplate. Build this world naval benchmark at your own modeler workshop!

Artesania Latina’s modelers have created a spectacular wooden ship model. It is a faithful miniature wooden replica of the oldest three-masted sailing ship on the planet, which still sails the seas today: the Belem Training Ship Model at 1/75 scale.

The great French ship, destined to the learning of the new Gallic sailors, is beauty. It is also majesty and the history of world navigation. 125 years of history endorse it as a world nautical reference.

For just over a year, our model makers have put all their effort and knowledge into naval modeling so that the Belem training ship model from France is identical to the original boat. That is why the Belem Foundation has formally accredited the design and commercialization of the scale model of the French ship.
