We dive into the last part of the Elcano ship model instructions for its assembly. With these video tutorials made by our modelers, we put the finishing touch to the set up of the Spanish school ship model Juan Sebastián Elcano / Chilean Esmeralda (22260) at 1:250 scale. As we mentioned before, it is a faithful miniature replica excellent for beginners on the hobby of naval modeling.
ELCANO SHIP MODEL INSTRUCTIONS: SAILS (PART III – A)
We continue with ‘Sails – Part III’, which is Step 21 of the instructions for assembling the Elcano ship model (22260).
Arrange one unit of parts S7, S8, S9 and S10, that is, more sails. Take part S7, and sew it with a needle cotton thread –part CT1– around the stick part Y1, from top to bottom. When you finish sewing, help yourself with some Straight Fastening Tweezers (27020) to tie the knot on the stick.
Now, with a cutter, drill two small holes in the two opposite corners of the stick. Insert the two BR1 parts -two rings- into these. Take a part BL and thread -part CT1-. Put the thread through the hole and around part BL. Tie a knot at the end with the help of the aforementioned tweezers. The thread should be fully stretched through the hole and around the part BL. Apply Dense Cyanoacrylate for Porous Materials on the knot and allow to dry.
Next, you will have excess thread on both sides of the knot. First, completely cut one of the threads, while the other leave a few centimeters long. Don’t cut it all the way. Second, also using the tweezers, tie that thread with the BL part to the left side of the stick and tie the knot with cyano. Third, if there is excess thread, remove it with a cutter. Repeat all these actions on the other end of the stick with another BL part.
The result should be this:
ELCANO SHIP MODEL INSTRUCTIONS: SAILS (PART III – B)
Then go through the entire process again with the other SAILS. For the sail part S8, you will need one Y2 part, two BR1 parts and two BL parts. For the part S9, one Y3 part, two BR1 parts and two BL parts. And for the S10, one part Y4, two parts BR1 and four parts BL. Take again the sail part S7 and thread part CT1. At one end of the stick, tie a knot with plenty of thread left over from both sides. Apply cyano and let dry. Repeat the process on the other end of the stick.
Take the S7 sail. Use a Curved Fastening Tweezers (27021) to pass the thread -part CT1- with a needle above the mast top, as seen on the video. The goal is the sail can be already hanging on its mast. Make the knots as shown, apply a little of cyano and cut the excess thread with the Thread Snips (27060). The sail already stays in place.
Repeat the process with the S8 sail. Once hung, it has to be attached to the S7 sail with thread. Tie them by means of the two BR1 parts that are on the sail. Passing the CT1 thread through the BR1 ring and, right after, tie it to the end of the stick. Repeat the process also for the other end of the pole with the other BR1 ring.
Do the same with the S9 sail, but this time tying it to the S8 sail. And finally, with the S10 sail, knotting it to the S9. This should be the final look with all the sails in place.
ELCANO SHIP MODEL INSTRUCTIONS: SAILS (PART IV – A)
Well, it’s time for the next task. Step 22 of the assembly instructions for the ship model Elcano (22260). This one is about ‘Sails – Part IV’.
Take the four sails parts S11. Now take one and, using a utility knife, drill three holes in each of the three corners of the sail. Then, insert one of the three parts BR1 -rings- into each hole. Open each part BR1 with two Needle Nose Pliers (27213) and insert the ring through the sail. After inserting it, close it again using the aforementioned pliers. As we have discussed, repeat the process with the other three sails.
Again, take a sail part S11. Insert thread through the BR1 ring found on the most pointed part of the sail, at the top and tie a knot. Cut the excess of one of the ends of the thread and pass the other end through the mast. Then bring the thread to the hull, tighten it, tie it off and glue it with cyano. Watch the video for it.
Now, thread CT1 through the outermost ring BR1. Begin to tie a knot and leave a hole to insert it into the bottom sail pole. Insert into the stick and close the knot. Do the same with more thread through the remaining BR1 ring, the third one, the one closest to the mast. In this sense, the sail part S11 will be attached to the lower sail.
ELCANO MODEL SHIP INSTRUCTIONS: SAILS (PART IV – B)
Below that bottom sail, place a PCL part. Bend the wire that has the stick on it and attach it to the mast. Use the pliers to twist the wire around the mast.
Take CT1 thread and pass it through the eye of the BR1 part of that lower sail to make a knot and pass it through the PCL stick. The sail will be attached to the mast. Remember to apply cyano to all the knots you make.
Thread CT1 through the ring on the hull and tie it to the stick so that it is taut. The rest of the thread, pass it through the mast top and tie it to the deck. Take a look at the video to run this process, which you will need to repeat for the other three sails.
ELCANO SHIP MODEL INSTRUCTIONS: SAILS (PART V)
Step 23 of Elcano ship model instructions (22260) for the assembly of Spanish school ship, is about the ‘Sails – Part V’. You need to pay close attention to the video so that you can build the rest of the sails.
JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO MODEL SHIP: DECKS (PART III – A)
We continue with Step 24 of the Elcano ship model instructions for its assembly. This is about ‘Decks – Part III’.
Take two M8 parts and glue them parallel to the foredeck as shown on the video. Next, take ten units of the part DM4. With the help of cyano and grip pliers, take five of these and glue each one next to the other on the deck area shown. Then turn the boat 180º and do the same for the other five on the other side of the deck.
Once this task is done, take a Stainless Steel Ruler 150 mm (27069). Use it to mark with a pencil on the edge of the hull two points with an equidistance of 18 mm. From each of these two points, with the ruler, measure and mark two points 6 mm inside the deck. Drill with a small hand drill at the two points marked on the deck.
Take an M6 part. Apply a drop of cyano and insert it with tweezers into one of the two holes made. Repeat the process with another M6 part and insert it into the other deck hole.
JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO MODEL SHIP: DECKS (PART III – B)
It is time to use thread part CT2 for the placement of part P2, previously painted with Off-White Acrylic Paint (27702). First, thread the thread through the two holes in part P2. Second, take the other end of the thread and feed it through an M6 part. Do the same with the other end. When you are inserting the two ends of the thread into each M6 part, insert them from the outside to the inside.
Next, make a knot in each of the two inserted ends so that the part P2 does not come loose. Apply a little cyano to each one. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the boat.
JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO ASSEMBLY: HANDRAILS AND PROPELLER
The ‘Handrails and Propeller’ is Step 25 of the video tutorial for building the model of the Elcano ship. Take two PE3 parts, previously painted with off-white paint. Apply cyano to each of the tips of the base that will be inserted. Place each of the two PE3 parts on the edge of the hull and the deck with the help of a Curved Fastening Tweezers (27021). There are two in the bow.
Then, take a PE4 part, also previously painted with off-white colour. Bend it with your hands so that it takes on the curved shape of the stern. Once you have the shape, apply cyano to each of the corners and glue the part with both hands to the edge of the deck. Take another PE4 part and tack it right next to the one you placed earlier. Put it behind the lifeboat. Repeat the process on the other side of the hull.
Finally, the part M11 -propeller- enters the scene. Apply cyano to the tip to be inserted and place it with your hands and a pair of tweezers on the hull.
JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO ASSEMBLY: LAST DETAILS TO FINISH (PART I)
We continue with the final step of the Elcano ship model instructions for its assembly with the ‘Last Details’, which is Step 26. Arrange a unit of the part WD3 with a diameter of 2×35 mm, previously painted off-white. Later, take the part FL1 -Spanish flag- and with the help of a cutter, remove the sticker protector.
Place the center of the sticker -it has a stripe drawn- on the stick and close the sticker with your hands and the handle of a scalpel cutter until both sides of the flag stick together. Stick it in the hole in the aft deck provided for it.
It is the turn of the part PE5 Elcano / PE6 Esmeralda -metal sheet with the name of the ship-. First, paint it with Hull Green Colour (27751). Then, sand the entire edge of the sheet with a utility cutter until you can see the metal of the sheet. Apply cyano and glue it to the stern of the boat, just below the flag.
JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO ASSEMBLY: LAST DETAILS TO FINISH (PART II)
Now, take the two parts M17 -anchors-, previously painted with Off-Black Colour (27703). Place them into the two holes provided for this with the help of tweezers and a few drops of cyano. Finally, there is the part PE7 / PE8 -name of the ship for the base-. Also paint it with off-black colour, sand the edges with a cutter until you see the metal part and, with cyano, glue it to the exhibition base.
We remind you that you can also purchase the Elcano Gift Pack (22260L), which includes the kit with the schooner sailboat, its paints and some tools. It has a lower price than if the products are purchased separately.
First month in 2023, first surprise for our customers friends. After several years out of stock and off the market, the spectacular new edition of the deep-sea tugboat model ship is back, suitable for R/C or radio control, Sanson (20415). Our team of professional modelers and 3D designers have worked hard to exponentially improve this 1:50 scale model. A classic for any naval modeling collection. “You won’t have the slightest setback when it comes to building it”, assures one of Artesanía Latina members.
Sanson still is a faithful miniature replica of a tugboat from the 40s of the 20th century. However, its renewed assembly experience makes this boat a delight to build. The best thing is that, in addition to being prepared for radio control, it is also ready to light up, to include motor and servo, and… To be navigable thanks to the experience of the modeler who knows and decides to do it! We present the new model of the R/C tugboat Sanson on the video below, your jaw will drop at such beauty, such jewel of the naval modeling. Be dazzled!
R/C TUGBOAT MODEL SANSON: MORE REALISM
The model of the tugboat suitable for R/C Sanson is aimed at modelers with an intermediate level, at least. However, a beginner, with patience and paying close attention, could also assemble it since the instructions are on video. The different steps are explained in detail. The new guide on DVD is like a masterclass given by our modeller… A joy! As we mentioned in the introduction, your assembly experience is much more enjoyable and less difficult.
In addition, the model is much more realistic compared to its old version, thanks to three important improvements made and commented, among many others. In this sense, the Artesanía Latina team has completely emptied the structure of the model of the tugboat. The hull of the boat allows it to be both a static and R/C model by having the hollowed-out ribs and by offering a comfortable access to the interior. Please pay attention to the below images about it!
Our model has the stern deck is openable, that is, when we remove the support arches for the cables from their anchoring places, we can ‘disengage’ a part of the stern deck, access the interior of the hull to be able to work comfortably and, later, refit these parts without noticing anything unusual.
As you can see, you can add an engine to it to navigate. On our website, you can purchase aLow RPM Motor (27591) to move the propelleronly during the exhibition of the model -this engine is not suitable for navigation-, for sale separately.
The modeler who wishes can also attach a servomotor -not available- that rotates the rudder blade.
R/C TUGBOAT MODEL SANSON: LIGHTING AND SMOKE
And the lights! The model of the tugboat suitable for R/C Sansonallows its illumination. Two LED bulbs can be placed at the engine room, one at the captain’s cabin, another under the skylight and three on the mast. Without forgetting its exhibition base, which didn’t even come in the old kit! To make your boat visible in the dark or at night, what’s better than to purchase our LED Lighting Set (27590) -for sale separately-.
We have also thought of another essential activity of this type of ship as if it were the real ship. We have designed it so that a smoke generation system can be included -the system is not included in the kit-.
R/C TUGBOAT MODEL SANSON: KIT CONTENTS
The naval modeling kit Sanson contains all the necessary parts for you to build your model: 7 high-precision laser-cut plywood sheets, as well as such as birch strips and round dowels, and oak veneer. By the way, it is the first kit that contains oak veneer, being Artesanía Latina a pioneer in including this hardwood in any model on the market.
In this way, the model is much more realistic, exclusive and avoids the use of wood from tropical forests. It also comes with 1 photo-etched plate with numerous and magnificent details, as well as accessories such as die-cast parts, brass round dowels, threads, wooden channel and much more.
For its assembly, you can follow our complete step-by-step video guide with graphic diagrams and others as well as many other information. The kit comes with a plan printed on both sides which, in addition to images of the vessel, includes a photographic parts list -another innovation from our firm-, as well as a QR code that leads to theSanson playlist on our Youtube channel with all the videos of the assembly instructions.
Once it is built, the model measures 3.81” (605mm) length, 5.11” (130mm) width and 13.47” (350mm) height.
DEEP-SEA TUGBOAT SANSON: PERFECT FINISH
Finally, achieve the best finish with the Acrylic Paints Set for Sanson Tugboat (277PACK23), for sale separately. It contains 12 20 ml jars, each one with different and varied colors so that its faithful miniature replica shines. The drying of the paint after its application is fast.
Our model building friends have been demanding this model for a long time. They wanted the model of this tugboat from the 40s of the last century. This naval icon was characterized by its powerful 2,000 HP steam boiler. The vessel could develop speeds of 14 knots while coming to the rescue of much larger boats. It was a small-tonnage ship and low draft but with more than enough power and maneuverability to assist much larger vessels.
Well now… It is already at our warehouses, at your disposal! Build this beautiful and historic jewel of museum quality wooden model ship, the tugboat model suitable for R/C Sanson (20415) at 1:50 scale.
We are back to show you the second part of Elcano model set up with other video tutorials made by our professional modelers. This faithful 1:250 scale miniature replica of the Spanish training ship Juan Sebastian Elcano / Chilean Esmeralda (22260) is aimed at beginners modelers.
ELCANO MODEL SET UP : UPPER DECK
We continue to accompany our modelers friends during Elcano model set up with Step 9, dedicated to the ‘Upper Deck’. Take the parts 5 and MD3 of the deck shown on the image. Next, apply our Cyanoacrylate for Porous Materials (27650), sold separately, around the edge of the top of the part MD3. Takepart 5 and paste it on top of the MD3 as shown on the video.
Once the adhesive is dry, take a small flat brush and a jar of White Primer Filler (27701), sold separately. Paint these and carefully, paint the sides of the two joined parts. Drill with a 4 mm hand drill the central area to make a hole.
Then, paint all the parts M15 and start cyanoacrylate gluing each of the parts M15 and DM2 with off-white acrylic paint (27702). We remind you that you can purchase the complete Juan Sebastian Elcano Acrylic Paints Set (277PACK17). Once all the parts have been painted, glue them with parts 7, the two previously joined parts as seen on the video. Adhere also, without prior painting, the part M10.
Make eight small holes on the places indicated on the video. Using some Straight Fastening Tweezers (27020), place the eight parts M2. Lastly, cut the lower excess of these parts with a Professional Straight Cutting Pliers (27212). Finally, take another part M2 and put it on the roof of the middle cabin on the upper deck.
ELCANO MODEL SET UP: LIFERAFTS
Step 10 of Elcano model set up, the Spanish brigantine sailing ship, deals with the ‘Liferafts’. Take the part WD1 -4 mm in diameter and 10 mm long- and proceed to sand it down.
Put some cyano on two BR3 parts, which are sort of washers. Insert them into each of the both sides of the part WD1 with the help of a pair of tweezers. Finally, paint the joined part with off-white acrylic paint (27702). The end result is a DM4 part. Repeat the process eleven times.
ELCANO TRAINING SHIP MODEL: DECKS (PART II)
We continue on Step 11 of the Elcano model set up, the Spanish school ship. This is about ‘Decks – Part II -‘. Gather two parts M7, three piarts M2, one part M4, another M5 and one M9. Paint them with color off-white and stick them with cyan on the places provided for it on the video, specifically, on the foredeck .
Subsequently, take the two parts MBC – 30 mm long – and adhere them as shown. It is time for another collection: the one of two parts M9, two parts M12, two parts M21, one part M3, one part M10, two parts PE2 and two parts M2. Paint them in white and glue them as you have done a few moments ago, but in the consecutive part of the deck.
Again, repeat the process on the central part of the deck with four parts PE2 and two parts M9. Do the same on the fourth part of the deck with two parts M12, two parts M9, one part M2, one M3, another M10, two parts PE2 and two parts M21.
On the stern deck, do it with seven parts M2, two parts M7, another two M9 and two parts 7. To which you must add, two parts M3, another part M2, one M10, one M15, one M16, a part DM1, another DM2 and a last DM4. See on the video the beautiful final result of the placement of all the details.
JUAN SEBASTIAN ELCANO MODEL SHIP ASSEMBLY: BOW
The ‘Bow’ is Step 12 of the video tutorial for the assembly of Elcano trainingship. Take a drill of 0,75 mm and drill it five times on the forward hull, where our professional modeler indicates.
Using pliers, hold the eyebolts (parts M2) to be attached and apply a bit of cyanoacrylate at each one before inserting them into position horizontal in the holes.
ELCANO MODEL SHIP SET UP: TOPS
We continue on ‘Tops’, which is Step 13 of the assembly of the reduced model of the famous Spanish school ship Juan Sebastian Elcano (22260). Lay out one part 13 and one part WD1. With a file, sand the inner center area of part 13 as seen on the video until you can insert part WD1 through it. Take the part WD1 and paint with off-white and a flat brush the part 13 -use a pair of tweezers to hold the part while you do it-.
Next, remove the eight part 12 from your plank of wood. Sand the sides of all the parts before painting them burnt umber colour (27743). Let them dry.
ELCANO MODEL SET UP: BLOCKS
Let’s go with the video tutorial of Step 14, in which we will work on the ‘Blocks’. Using a scalpel cutter, remove all twenty-four parts BL from your wooden plate. Sand them on all sides, emphasizing the central part with relief.
Take a manual drill with a 0.75 mm bit and drill through the part BL from one end to the other. Repeat the process with the remaining twenty-three blocks.
ELCANO MODEL SET UP: MASTS (PART I – A)
Step 15 of the video tutorials in which our modelers teach the assembly of the model of Elcano / Esmeralda boat refers to ‘Masts – Part I’. Take two parts WD1, which have a diameter of 4 mm and five parts WD2, which are 3 mm.
You must cut and take four parts MA1 -diameter 4 mm and length 149 mm-, four parts MA2 -diameter 3 mm and length 91 mm-, eight parts PCL -diameter 3 mm and length 63 mm- and a part BSP -diameter 3 mm and length 90 mm-. Repeat the process with a part Y1 -diameter 3 mm and length 105 mm-, a Y2 -3 and 93 mm-, a Y3 -3 and 72 mm- and a Y4 -3 and 61 mm-. Varnish all the mentioned parts with water-based stain for sapele wood (27690-20), included in the indicated Juan Sebastián Elcano Acrylic Paints Set (277PACK17).
Then, cut a part of wire(SW part) with the Professional Flat-Cutting Pliers (27212), give it a U-shape and insert a block (part BL) into it through the hole made before. Surroundthe block with the wire through the slit, turn it until it is fixed with a Professional Needle Nose Pliers (27213). Do the same with another three blocks.
JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO MASTS (PART I – B)
Take a part MA1 and a part 13 -before worked- and introduce the 13 through the hole from the middle of the MA1. Apply cyan near the end of the stick, and lay part 13 on top until dry, 15mm from the end of the stick. Use our Stainless Steel Rule 15 cms (27069) for it. Put, again, cyano, but this time on the final part of the mast and join a part 14 to it -previously painted-, put it on the tip of the mast.
After drying, insert a part MA2 through the other hole on part 14. Apply cyano so that it sticks to the part MA1 and to part 13 as seen on the video. Also put adhesive on part 12 and attach it to part 13. Repeat this last step with another part 12. Now, insert the part M18 -previously painted- through the lower part of the mast, calculate with the 15 mm rule, put cyano on the mast and glue it there. Drill a hole with a 0.75 mm hand drill on the mast, glue an M2 part -eyebolt- and insert it into the hole with the help of pliers.
ELCANO MODEL SET UP: MASTS (PART I – C)
Next, take a part BL -block with wire- and wind the wire with your hands and the flat-grip pliers to the top of the mast. Cut the excess wire. Repeat the process with another, placing it at the same height. Put glue on the two wires attached to the pole so that the blocks do not move. It is time for the part WB. Attach it to the top of the mast, above the two blocks. The modeler must do this task again until four masts are finished.
On the next post, we will continue showing our modelers friends how to continue building the model in wood and plastic of the Spanish training shipJuan Sebastian Elcano (22260). In the meantime, start building it now with us!
Prolific year this 2022 -that we are about to finish- for the creation and renovation of ship model building kits by Artesanía Latina’s team. And we end… With another unbeatable surprise for our modelers friends! The renovatedFrenchcorsair model ship in wood Le Renard (22401). At 1:50 scale, this faithful miniature replica of the Galic cutter is recommended for fans of this hobby with at least an intermediate level of skills and knowledge.
Due to this new edition, you will not be forced to create or manufacture any of the required parts, as was the case with the old one. In addition, we have the Official License of the Association Cotre Corsaire de Saint-Malo. Thanks to it, since 1991, a replica of the original boat still sails the seas and oceans. Chapeau for your work! So let’s get to know the contents with which the corsair model ship Le Renard is assembled. The famous corsair Robert Surcouf, at the service of Napoleon, was in command of this.
CORSAIR MODEL SHIP LE RENARD: MODELING KIT CONTENTS
Le Renard cutter model was a sailboat with which attacked and seized the enemy commercial ships of France. Now it has improved contents. The model building kit contains all the necessary parts to build the corsair model ship. Its greatest achievement was defeating in combat the English schooner HMS Alphea in 1813. Its assembly system by means of a false keel and frames brings its construction closer to that of a real sailboat.
This reedition of the Le Renard naval modeling kit comes with board parts cut by high precision laser, birch wood, brass, cast iron and sails ready to be placed. Of course, the exhibition base with a metal plate is included so that you can display your model once finished.
To achieve this goal, our modelers friends have very complete step-by-step instructions on DVD format for computers. In Spanish, French, English, Italian, Portuguese, German and Dutch. We also include all the explanations related to the simple and fun assembly of the rigging. Remember that printed instructions are not included. Also, you can download these instructions for free at Le Renard product sheet(22401).
Por cierto, cuando esto ocurra y quede ensamblada, la maravillosa maqueta del barco corsario galo medirá 615 mm de largo, 238 mm de ancho y 560 mm de alto.
CUTTER MODEL LE RENARD: LIFEBOAT AND CANNONS
You will be dazzled when you build it! Among other reasons, pay attention to the beauty and high level of detail, in general, and the lifeboat, in particular, of its stern, which will shine splendor.
What to say about its imposing and fabulous 10 cannons made of metal!
Get the best finishing with the new Set of Acrylic Paints for Le Renard (277PACK18). Water-based and quick-drying, your French corsair ship model will be much more realistic. Contains 6 jars of 20 ml each with the following colours: Off-White, Off-Black, Chequer Yellow, Burnt Umber, Vermilion and Bright Green.
In short, after more than three years missing in the ‘Bermuda Triangle’, the wooden model ship of the French corsair cutter Le Renard (22401) is out of darkness. It is already at Artesanía Latina‘s stores to the delight of the modelers who were waiting for it… And there are many of them according to the emails received! Go privateers, build your ship!
We are going to teach our modelers friends the assembly of the model ship Juan Sebastián Elcano (22260), the Spanish training ship that It is named after the browser that went around the world for the first time. Without forgetting Francisco de Magallanes, of course. We have decided that the best way to help the beginners modelers to assemble this faithful miniature replica is through video tutorials created by us. Thus, we accompany them during the construction process of this 1:250 scale model in wood and plastic, which can also be the Chilean training ship, Esmeralda. Decorate it however you like.
So, we begin the process of Elcano model ship assembly with the first thing to do when you have any naval modeling kit on your hands. Check its contents using the parts list. Normally, we include a few more parts than stipulated in case the modeler suffers a mishap with one during assembly. A part breaks, it is lost, the dog eats it, it inherits from a relative or, for example, the house floods. There are many reasons that we read from our loyal customers for more than fifty years. Pay attention to the video below.
We recommend that you specify if all the parts are inside the box. In the event that this model is missing something, which we do not believe is the case, do not hesitate to contact us to request it here: Spare Parts Service.
LET’S BUILD TOGETHER THE FIRST THING: EXHIBITION BASE
Now, let’s get down to business with Step 1 of the video tutorial. Let’s build the ‘Exhibition Base’ in wood to display the naval model of Juan Sebastián Elcano once assembled. By the way, when you finish it it will be 17.91” (455 mm) length, 10.03” (255 mm) height and 4.33” (110 mm) width. Take two 150mm length wooden round dowels (WD1) and remove the two base pieces (4) from the wooden plank.
Next, apply our cyanoacrylate for porous materials (27650), sold separately, on one end of the dowel. Insert it into one of the two holes on one of the sides that make up the base. So that everything is balanced, we recommend that you use our Micro Square, present in Micro Rules Set (27325), which is also sold separately. Repeat the process with the other dowel, inserting it into the other hole in the same base piece. All that remains is to apply adhesive to the other two ends of the round dowels and place the other part of the base into the two small holes. Make sure everything is straight and stable.
Let it dry for a few minutes to give it… The final touch! Paint it with brush. With what paints? You wonder. No problem. Artesanía Latina has created a Specific Acrylic Paints Pack (277PACK17) for the scale model of Juan Sebastián Elcano / Esmeralda. Add them to your shopping cart!
THE HULL OF JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO
Step 2 of assembly of the model ship Elcano passes through its prefabricated ‘Hull’ made of plastic. We intend to make the initiation to this wonderful hobby of any modeler easier. Removed the headaches of building a hull out of wooden parts. For all these reasons, it is ideal for people who wish to assemble their first scale naval reproduction. Take the two parts that make up the hull and put cyanoacrylate on all the edges and lace areas of one of the parts of the helmet, so that none remain without glue. Carefully join them with precision and light pressure so that there is a single piece. The hull is already assembled!
Use a brush to apply a layer of white filler primer (27701) to make everything even, sold separately. The next task is to draw the waterline on the hull. On the video we show an artisan way of drawing it, however… We have another magnificent solution! Our new Waterline Marker (27649), do not hesitate to purchase it for your naval modeling workstation (27648).
It’s time to finish the hull. Pastejapanese masking tape above the waterline drawn in order to paint the lower part of the hull, which remains submerged. Take the little jar of hull green paint and paint it with a brush, as we did, or with airbrush, however you like. Let it dry and after a few hours apply a second layer. Finally, remove the tape carefully and with a cutter remove any excess paint.
ELCANO MODEL SHIP ASSEMBLY: DECKS (FIRST PART)
From now on we are immersed in Step 3 of the assembly of the model of the ship that bears the name of the famous Juan Sebastián Elcano, the beautiful brigantine schooner sailboat. Touch the first part of their ‘Decks’. Take the parts 1, 2 and 3 of the deck that appear in the image. With the help of a pencil and a Micro Center Ruler (27326), mark and make a small hole with a drill 0.75 mm diameter in each of the points indicated on the video. Continue using a brush to paint the three parts with satin varnish, included in the paint pack.
Take part 2 of the deck and paint the two M1 elliptical parts with off black paint. Let dry and with some straight fastening tweezers (27020) apply cyano to each of the ellipticals and carefully adhere around each one of the two large holes. Use a rounded file to enlarge the two holes on which you have glued the parts. Remove the remains of sawdust and dust. Another stage of construction finished together!
ELCANO SHIP MODEL ASSEMBLY: DECK PLACEMENT
In Step 4 of the assembly of the model ship Juan Sebastián Elcano, let’s quickly see the ‘Deck Placement’ with which we have just worked. Take the three parts that make it up. Apply around the contour of part 1 -the one that goes in the center- cyanoacrylate and fix this by pressing it carefully. Then, do the same with part 2, the foredeck to which you have glued the two elliptical pieces, and with part 3, the stern.
Finally, take all the M2 parts from the kit, that is, the golden eyebolts. Put cyanoacrylate in each of these and insert them with a tweezers into each of the small custom-made holes on the deck you made on the previous step.
BUILD THE CABINS OF ELCANO MODEL SHIP
Step 5 of the assembly of the model of the Spanish training ship Juan Sebastián Elcano/ Chilean Esmeralda refers to the construction of the ‘Cabins’. Place the part MD1 and the 4 units of the part MD2 on your work table, which by the way you can protect with any of our cutting mats. Paint all these parts with off white paint, leaving one side of each of these unpainted in order to for the adhesive to work. Then, remove from the plate one part 8 and 4 units of part 6. Apply cyano to the unpainted side of each part. Take part 8 and glue it on top of MD1, repeat the process with the 4 units of part 6 over the many others of the MD2.
Once glued, paint with off white the part of the 5 units that has adhered, since it was unpainted. Wait for it to dry. To finish, paint with sapele water-based wood stain the top of each cabin, which you previously glued and painted white. We remind you that all the paints, stains and varnishes that we use can be found in the Juan Sebastián Elcano Acrylic Paints Set (277PACK17), for sale separately.
JUAN SEBASTIÁN ELCANO DECK ELEMENTS
Using a cutter, extract the 10 units of part 7. We are on the video tutorial, Step 6, which deals with the ‘Deck Elements’. For now, easy for any fan who wants to get started in naval modeling, right? Let’s continue… Take two of those parts, and glue them together with cyano. Repeat the process with the rest of parts until, after gluing them, you are left with 5 units of part 7. Now, collect the following parts and arrange them on your work table. 5 units of the part M3, 1 unit of the part M4, 1 unit of the part M5, 8 units of the part M6, 4 units of the part M7, 2 units of the part M8 and 8 units of the part WS1 25 mm, in addition to the 5 units of part 7 that you already had.
Take those parts and glue them with a tiny dot of adhesive to a part of wood -so you don’t stain your work surface- and paint them off white. Proceed in the same way but with gold-colored paint with the 9 units of the part M9, the 4 units of the part M10,the unit of the part M11 and the 6 units of the part M12.
ELCANO MODEL SHIP ASSEMBLY: CAPSTAN
We focus on the ‘Capstan’, Step 7 for the assembly of the Elcano ship model made by Artesanía Latina. Remove from the kit the 2 units of part 9 and parts 10, 11 and PE1. Glue all of them with cyanoacrylate in the way shown on the video, pay attention to it. Use a brush to paint the glued part with off white color. Right after, do the same with gold color to paint the 2 units of the part M12, the unit of the part M13 and the 2 units of the part M14.
Once all the parts are dry, start gluing the metallic gold ones onto the white wooden part with some tweezers, stick to how it is done in the tutorial. Be patient with this step as precision and calm are required.
BUILD THE STAIRS OF ELCANO MODEL SHIP
We momentarily conclude this post for the assembly of the model of the Elcano ship with Step 8, ‘Stairs’. Get the part PE2 (6 units). With a Professional Needle Nose Pliers (27213) proceed to bender perpendicularly and very carefully the internal rungs. Also, bend the handrails -the sides of the part- inwards until there is a noticeable stair shape. Paint the staircase off white. Repeat the process 5 more times.
In the next post we will continue building together this magnificent model for beginners of the Spanish training ship Juan Sebastián Elcano (22260). Meanwhile, you can read more about this model in its specific blog post, watch its presentation on the video below and order it to assemble it now because it cannot be expected before so much desire. Start building it!
The varied and elegant fishing boatmodels in wood to build by Artesanía Latina are one of the firm’s greatest exponents. Even the smallest detail is thought through when designing any of our fishing boat models. Hence the success of our naval modeling kits. The modeler has high quality parts, numerous and beautiful decorative elements and some precise step-by-step instructions. Everything so that your assembly experience is fully satisfactory with the faithful replicas of the boats from our catalogue. That is why we are going to review all the fishing boat models, we are even going to show them according to their level of difficulty when assembling them.
FISHING BOAT MODELS: LA PROVENÇALE, FROM THE FRENCH CÔTE D’AZUR
One of the two top sales products of our current catalog, along with Providence. The value for money and its beauty make La Provençale (19017-N) one of the essential fishing boats models on your collection of naval modeling. It is a cute boat from the French Riviera.

FISHING BOAT MODELS: PROVIDENCE, THE NEW ENGLAND WHALING (MOBY DICK)
Another of the fishing boatmodels from our best-selling catalog throughout the world: Providence (19018). The excellent and beautiful New England whaling ship of the 19th century, which appears in fictional literary works such as Moby Dick. Imagine six men fighting a whale in the open sea and with a boat of this type… Brutal! At 1:25 scale, it is ideal for beginning modelers like the model above. Of course, due to its details, for example, made of cherry wood, the most experienced modelers will be enthralled. By the way, these first two naval miniatures make a good couple so… Build them at your workshop! They are essential for your collection.

FISHING BOATS: BON RETOUR, FROM LA RADA OF BREST (FRANCE)
The third of the wooden fishing boatmodels that we introduce you is the Bon Retour (19007). It is a faithful mirror of the French boat of the Rada de Brest, but on a 1:25 scale. First built in 1952, it was in use until the 1980s. The fishermen used it for scallop fishing. Currently, a Gallic association for the preservation of the history of navigation called Tud Ar Morkeeps and cares for the original small sailboat, restored just thirty years after its creation by Guy Le Cornec. Designed for beginners modelers, the model is liked by anyone who sees it for the shape of its hull, for the sails and for the fun it produces during its assembly process.
Speaking of the contents of the modeling kit Bon Retour, obviously, the box has all the parts that the naval modeling fan requires for its construction. Its high-precision laser-cut board parts, hardwoods, brass, cast iron and cotton sails ready to be placed should be highlighted. In addition, as a gift it includes the wooden base with name plate for its exhibition. And you can not miss its assembly guide on DVD for computer -it does not contain printed instructions-. Once the model is assembled, it measures 15.55” (395mm) length, 14.60” (371mm) height and 4.05” (103mm) width. Do you want to see better what exists in the box? We open it on the video below these lines.
FISHING BOATS: SAINT MALO, THE LATE 19TH CENTURY FRENCH DORIS
The fourth proposal on this post about fishing boat models for beginners modelers is the French doris from the end of the 19th century called Saint Malo (19010-N). This type of sailboat, firstly, sailed along the American coast of Massachusetts and Nova Scotia, to later make landfall in European countries such as Spain, Portugal and France. They were used for cod fishing in cold waters and were transported in larger vessels. At 1:20 scale, the faithful miniature replica reflects the naval history of two continents.
The contents of the modeling kit of Saint Malo, has high precision laser cut board parts, hardwoods, brass, cast iron and cotton sails. If you want to assemble the model, watch the video tutorials made by our modelers on our YouTube channel. It does not contain printed instructions. The kit comes with a printed plan of the finished model and a list of parts. Once it is built, this faithful miniature replica measures 13.58” (345mm) length, 3.54” (90mm) width and 8.66” (220mm) height.
FISHING BOAT MODELS: MARE NOSTRUM, THE TRADITIONAL MEDITERRANEAN FISHING SHIP
One of the banners for decades of Artesanía Latina, redesigned several times, is our first fishing boat model alternative for modelers with an intermediate level of skills. The Mare Nostrum (20100-N) is the typical motor boat from the Mediterranean Sea, many are fishermen from coastal European countries who today still they use. At 1:35 scale, the model is an exact copy of those that sail. Thanks to its spectacular finishes and details, it also seduces the most experienced too.
The level of detail is astonishing. Boxes for fish, cabins, a detailed engine, a winch to collect the cable, and at the stern, protruding from the hull, a rigging with pulleys to pass it during trawling… Just look at the images below. In this sense, the modeling kit of Mare Nostrum comes with precision laser cut, brass and cast board parts, all of them made of the highest quality. When built, the model measures 16.14” (410mm) length, 10.62” (270mm) height and 4.13” (105mm) width. This is the typical and traditional model that should be at all workshops. It’s already all over the world, what are you waiting for to assemble it!
PAINTS FOR FISHING BOAT MODELS
If you want to paint this and many other fishing boat models, Artesanía Latina team has created two specific paints sets for this type of boat. The paints are acrylic and water-based. They dry very quickly and allow to achieve the most reliable and pretty finishes. The first of the sets is the Basic (277PACK13), which is used precisely for the Mare Nostrum. The second of the sets is the Advanced(277PACK3), with which the Mare Nostrum, Carmen II and Marina II are also painted, which we will talk about on the next post among others.
On the next post we will continue explaining what the remaining reduced models of this type of boat are, including the novelties of this year.
We are lucky and our elite modelers friends too. You already know that we have manufactured a new edition of a very famous Spanish ship of the line: the so-called ‘Trafalgar 1805’. Let’s get to know, then, the relevant history of Santa Ana vessel in order to have a better perspective of what this great ship was like before assembling its splendid model ship in wood at 1:84 scale.
HISTORY OF SANTA ANA VESSEL: DIMENSIONS
The Santa Ana was a Spanish ship of the line equipped with 112 cannons that was part of the glorious Spanish Armada. Of course, in the Battle of Trafalgar it was armed with 104 cannons and 32 howitzers, but… What were its measures? It had a length of 213.4 feet and a beam of 58 feet, in addition to a total weight of more than two tons. To build it, the plans of the Navy engineer José Romero Fernández de Landa were taken as an example. This, in turn, was based on how another ship of the line was created: the Purísima Concepción. In this case, the one who would direct the construction of the Santa Ana would be Miguel de la Puente, using the aforementioned guidelines, with the engineers Sánchez Bort and Tomás Muñoz.
The beautiful Santa Ana sailboat was erected as one of the pioneering ships with three decks called ‘Meregildos’. In this very special group of ships, there were also another seven that were born later as Príncipe de Asturias, Mejicano, Reina María Luisa, Conde de Regla, Salvador del Mundo, Real Carlos and San Hermenegildo. All were built based on the Santa Ana by Royal Order of 1786.
HISTORY OF SANTA ANA VESSEL: FEATURES
Its characteristics? Huge decks, great maneuverability, a strong military muscle thanks to its numerous cannons and a great resistance capacity against the attacks of the sea and enemies. It carried three masts with square sails and two or three artillery decks. It even had lightning rods and metal chains! If one fell, the system channeled the electrical discharge to the sea.
The history of the Santa Ana vessel shows it as one of the best. He created a new way of fighting in those times that would be essential for the Navy. The different ships lined up one behind the other to create an artillery front that fired at the same time. Although the Santa Ana was launched in 1784, even years later it still underwent some improvements.
The Santa Ana and her naval brothers became the best warships on the European continent. It was a ‘sea monster’. Their crew? 745 sailors on its three decks, as a warship. When a conflict broke out, it was increased to 1,050. And, in the Battle of Trafalgar, it was up to 1,102. Of course, the largest of the ships of the line would finally be Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad, called ‘El Escorial de los Mares’.
INITIAL MARITIME JOURNEYS OF THE SHIP OF THE LINE
The history of the Santa Ana vessel begins in 1785 with Commander Félix de Tejada at the helm to make its first voyage, its first test. The maritime route began in El Ferrol and ended in Cádiz. He realizes that, even though it is very resistant in the worst navigation conditions, certain improvements must be made to the rigging and he opens the third La Carraca breakwater a year later.
In July 1797, the ship of the line Santa Ana begins to forge its legend. Admiral Jervis and Rear Admiral Nelson of the British Royal Navy attempt to storm Cádiz. And that is where sixteen gunboats are positioned between Rota, La Caleta (gate of Seville) and Sancti Petri, and an additional fifteen at the mouth of the port. Thus, they support the warship and reject the English under the orders of José de Mazarredo. Of course, the blockade and the British presence is repeated more times.
In February 1798, the Santa Ana resumed its maritime voyage with Mazarredo’s squadron. Twenty-two ships, five frigates and three brigantines to pursue the British fleet, made up of only 9 ships and several frigates. This withdrew towards San Vicente, while the Spanish squadron, failing to catch up with them, entered Cádiz again on the 13th. Jervis appeared four days later with twenty-two ships and six frigates to resume the blockade.
HISTORY OF SANTA ANA VESSEL: FIRST SETBACKS
Commander Baltasar Hidalgo de Cisneros took command in July 1799, aided by Lieutenant General Grandallana, campaigning in the Mediterranean and the Gulf of Cadiz. However, anecdotally, he was stranded shortly after starting his journey towards Brest together with the French fleet.
What happens then? That the Spanish warship is forced to return to the port of the Andalusian city to disarm and repair itself. A great setback for Spain for which Hidalgo de Cisneros is tried in court martial, although he is totally acquitted at the end of the process. Just before the Battle of Trafalgar, in which we will deepen in the next post, the history of the ship Santa Ana joins the captaincy of Alcalá Galiano between 1803 and 1804.
We are almost finishing a year 2022 full of surprises. We have created new wooden ship models, innovative tools and we have reissued and improved numerous naval classics from our collection of naval modeling. For many years, there have been several models that we have not been able to manufacture but that have always been in our minds to sell them again. Our modelers friends demanded it that way. This is the case of the latest addition to our extensive catalogue: the renewed Harvey Model Ship (22416) in wood and at 1:60 scale.
Another great modeling kit made by Artesania Latina, this time, with the fabulous American schooner of the 19th century. It is aimed at modelers with at least an intermediate level of skills and knowledge on this wonderful hobby. Below these lines you can watch the presentation of the faithful miniature replica of the Harvey thanks to a spectacular video.
CONTENTS HARVEY MODEL SHIP: WOODEN MODEL BUILDING KIT
This wonderful wooden model ship of the Harvey, a 19th-century American schooner, has eight cannons and extremely fine details on deck. This gives greater weapons power to this historic American boat. It is a clearly reminiscent of the lines of the old coastal schooners of the 1860s in the United States. Inescapable its construction by any modeler who wants a complete collection. Let’s check what are the contents of the kit, all of them with the highest standards.
With this new limited edition, the modeler has highest quality parts such as precision laser cut basswood plywood and hardwoods (strips, rods and veneers). In addition, a photo-etched sheet in brass and die-cast with decorative parts to get a higher level. Without forgetting its sails with cotton fabric and flags -ready to be placed- and cotton and steel threads.
As a gift so that the model is perfectly exposed, a wooden exhibition base with a name plate prepared for theLED lighting (this system is sold separately).
Harvey model ship has a DVD for computer (Windows and Mac) with completely redesigned instructions. With real step-by-step photos that clarify everything. On this way, we have improved the assembly experience for our modeler friends. Now, the construction process will be much more enjoyable. Printed instructions are not included. Remember that you can also download the instructions for free at product sheet for this model on the Artesania Latina website.
Once Harvey model ship (22416) is assembled, it measures 26.77” (680mm) length, 19.29” (490mm) height and 9.84” (250mm) width.
SET OF ACRYLIC PAINTS FOT SCHOONERS MODELS
Achieve the best finishes for your 1:60 scale Harvey model ship. Paint it with the Harvey Schooners Acrylic Paints Set (277PACK21), for sale separately. It contains 12 bottles of 20 ml with water-based and fast-drying paints. Available colors are Off-White, Off-Black, Buff, Bright Red, Cocoa Brown, Burnt Umber, Hull Green, Gold, Gun Metal Gray, Garnet, Hull Dark Green and Semi-Gloss Dye Varnish Oak Shade. We recommend the use of airbrush for painting, although the modeler can also do it with brush.
These schooners are a type of sailboat defined by their rigging. They have a fast hull and sail with good ability to sail to windward. They transported cargo and fish, but they were also used for security issues like corsairs did. In short, with the model ship of Harley American Schooner (22416), modelers will have a very fun assembly experience. It is a beautiful jewel of ship modeling. Now available for you to assemble at your modeler’s workshop!
