Mississippi Ship Model Assembly by Artesania Latina (20515).

MISSISSIPPI SHIP MODEL ASSEMBLY: BOAT FRAMES AND DOORS

On this first video of the assembly of the Mississippi model, we focus on the frames and doors of the North American steamboat. We teach how to varnish and how to glue these elements. Steps 43 to 47 of section 5 On the digital instructions. Take a look!

Using a flat brush and a vise grip, paint the door with satin oak stain. Next, with a round brush and sapele dye, the door frames. If any of the frame pieces are a bit large, sand them down with our sanding block. Next, apply cyanoacrylate to each of the frame pieces and glue them together using the pliers. Press a little with your hands to fix them better.

Now check that the door fits through the frame. Take the metal trim part from the door window with the pliers, and paint it with a burnt shadow paint. Stick it to the door and then the acetate part -the transparent window- on top. Apply cyan to all three sides of the door and adhere it to the model ship. With this we finish the explanation of the first video of the Mississippi ship model assembly of Artesania Latina. From the most beautiful and highest quality faithful miniature replica of the paddle steamer.

Our modeler has used the following tools and finishing products for modeling:

MISSISSIPPI SHIP MODEL ASSEMBLY: DECK PLANKING

The second video of help for the Mississippi ship model assembly at 1/80 scale refers to the lining of the deck, we mean, deck planking. Steps from section 7 of the instructions.

Take the wooden plank and a ruler. Place the ruler right in the middle of it, and with a pencil mark the center lengthwise. Next, in the center of the sheet, place a protractor and mark where the 45º are on each side of it. Next, use a pencil and a smaller ruler to draw the straight lines of those angles: a kind of elongated ‘M’ will be drawn. Continue with the process as shown on the video until you have drawn all the lines.

Stick with cyanoacrylate the small strips with that M shape along and across the sheet. Make a round hole for the mast with a utility knife in the area where the battens have covered it and sand with a small file to remove burrs. Turn the iron over, holes and internal tabs that have been covered, open them. Cut all the outer excess of the sheet and pass the sanding block along all the sides. Glue with cyanoacrylate all the edges of the cover.

Here, our modeler has used:

KING OF THE MISSISSIPPI PADDLE WHEEL CONSTRUCTION (PART ONE)

Let’s go with the third video of the audiovisual guide for the Mississippi ship model assembly. Construction of the paddle wheel, symbol of this type of steamboat. In the instructions, this video corresponds to sections 9 and 34.

Take the different parts, apply cyanoacrylate where you need to stick them and fit them into the tabs provided for it. Use the sanding block to prepare the surface and glue two small ribbons on the inner sides. With a cutter also remove leftovers. File all the pieces. Subsequently, paint with transparent satin varnish and a flat brush all the pieces already fitted and glued. The sides, meanwhile, with oak-colored satin stain varnish.

Thread the motor cable through the two wooden grommets. Then place the motor on these. Stick the fixing wedges so that it is totally immovable. Take three small washers and glue them together, the smallest should go in the middle, repeat the process. Help yourself with straight pliers. Insert the stick through the lateral circumference of the base. Before inserting it through the second one, insert the three small circles already attached. Next, each of the parts that will make up the wheel. And, finally, the other three small circumferences adhered, after introduce the stick through the other circumference of the base.

KING OF THE MISSISSIPPI PADDLE WHEEL ASSEMBLY (PART TWO)

Fix the four wheels with the other many pieces created for that reason (without gluing them). Take the two elastic bands and tighten them. Glue with cyanoacrylate the strips that will make the blades of the wheels. Remove both the rubbers and the fixing pieces. Paint the pistons with acrylic paint (off black).

KING OF THE MISSISSIPPI SHIP MODEL: SPIRAL STAIRCASES

Fourth video, penultimate of this post. How to build the spiral stairs of the marvelous King of the Mississippi wooden paddle steamer model. The steps of this assembly, sections 11 and 12.

Using tweezers and cyanoacrylate, glue the parts of the rungs as shown in the image. The rectangular rungs belong to the straight part of the ladder, the wedge-shaped rungs to the curved part. Once the rectangular ones and the first wedge have been glued, glue the wooden ‘bar’ on the inner side at the height of the wedge rung. Proceed carefully up the steps. If burrs remain, remove them with a cutter.

Paint them with acrylic water-based paint (buff). Take the two metal pieces of the railing and paint them too with acrylic paint (off white) and a flat brush. Put cyan on all the sides of the steps – first on the straight ones – and glue the railing. Shape the curved part with your own hands. Now apply cyan on the side steps and glue the curved part of the ladder. Repeat the process on the other side of the ladder. Glue the two wooden handrails onto the railing. Paint them with oak-colored varnish.

Check that it is straight with a square. Repeat the process with all the columns checking that the distance between them is the same and that they are not crooked.

Crafts and Models Exhibition: Display Your Models with Our Bases, Supports, Moldings and Corners Pieces for Showcases

Artesania Latina has made and is maintaining a great effort to incorporate the exhibition base in all its products. Many old scale ship models of all brands did not have it at the time. Other modeling kits still do not include it. Sometimes, the modeler loses it at his workshop or after a move. Other times, it has deteriorated over time. The crafts and models exhibition, once assembled, is one of the greatest prides of the lover of this hobby. That is why we offer you the opportunity to exhibit your faithful miniature replicas with our bases, supports, moldings and corner pieces for showcases. We want your creations to shine in all their splendor!

SOLID PINE WOODEN BASES FOR CRAFTS AND MODELS EXHIBITION

First, we discover our references of bases, that serve both for the exhibition of naval models and other types of scale models, as well as numerous artistic creations and crafts. All of these have been manufactured with solid pine wood with different dimensions and shapes. Thus, they fit the size of your scale model. They are robust and durable, they will serve you for a lifetime. In addition, its decorative moldings give the exhibition base a great beauty and class. Currently, our catalog has two rectangular and two oval.

Speaking of the rectangular ones, the first exhibition base (29050) is 7.08” (180mm) length and 4.33” (110mm) width. The second one (29051), larger, 11.81” (300mm) length and 7.08” (180mm) width.

Speaking about the oval ones, the smallest exhibition base (29040) measures 8.66” (220mm) length and 4.33” (110mm) width. For its part, the larger base (29041), 14.17” (360mm) length and 7.08” (110mm) width.

PINE SUPPORTS FOR CRAFTS AND MODELS EXHIBITION: SHIP MODELS

Artesania Latina catalog also has specific supports for ship models, for naval modeling. They are used to be able to pose the keel up to 0.157” (4mm) thick of scale ship models. They are made of solid pine wood like the exhibition bases, they are of great quality for their long durability. In this sense, the modeler can find two varied types according to their measurements and they are presented in sets of two units.

On the one hand, we find the smaller base support (8590), 0.98” (25mm) height and 0.59” (15mm) in diameter.

Pine Supports 25xø15mm for the Ship Models with Keel up to 0.157'' (4mm) Exhibition.

On the other, the larger base support (8591), 1.29” (33mm) height and 0.86” (22mm) in diameter.

Pine Supports 33xø22mm for the Ship Models with Keel up to 0.157'' (4mm) Exhibition.

SOLID WOODEN MOLDINGS FOR CRAFTS AND MODELS SHOWCASES

Once the modeler finishes assembling their ship modeling kits, for example, uses the base and the consequent precise supports for the exhibition of her/his model ships. But… Would it be a good idea to protect them? Surely yes! That is why Artesania Latina gives you the opportunity to create your own exhibitor showcase by providing two fundamental elements. The solid wood moldings with slots 0.118” (3mm) width to build the base of the showcase and the corners pieces to decorate them, which we will talk about later. The only thing that the modeler must provide are the four crystals or four methacrylates.

You can choose between four different types of moldings for displaying models depending on the material they are made of and their size. Two are made of solid American walnut wood. The smaller molding (29511) is 0.472” (12mm) width and 0.472” (12mm) height, plus 39.37” (1,000mm) length. The largest one (29514) is 0.63” (16mm) width and 0.63” (16mm) height and 39.37” (1,000mm) length.

American Walnut Moldings for Display Cabinet or Showcase.

Made of sapele wood, there are two more. The dimensions of the smallest molding (29510) are 0.472” (12mm) width and height, with a length of 39.37” (1,000mm). The largest molding for showcase (29513), 0.63” (16mm) width and height, and 39.37” (1,000mm) length.

Sapele Moldings for Exhibitor Showcase.

DECORATIVE BRASS CORNER PIECES FOR SHOWCASES

The finishing touch. An icing on the cake. The point of beauty. The brass corner pieces to protect, decorate and stabilize the crystals or methacrylates of the showcases are all that and more. Place them on the corners and you will see what we say! There are two different models with different aesthetic shapes, they are presented on sets of four flat units so that they cannot be damaged during transport. Thus, the modeler can mold them with the help of pliers or with their own hands.

On the one hand, there is the Set of 4 Brass Corner Pieces N1 (27315).

Set of 4 Brass Corners Nº1 (27315) for Crafts and Models Exhibition in Showcases.
