Elcano Model Ship Assembly (I): Build with Us the Spanish Training Ship Model for Beginners

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.

Elcano Model Ship Assembly: Spanish Training Ship Juan Sebastián Elcano 1:250 (22260) by Artesanía Latina.

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. Paste japanese 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 third of the wooden fishing boat models 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 Mor keeps 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.

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). 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.

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.

Santa Ana Vessel History (I): The Pioneer Colossus of European Warships of Its Class

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.

Wooden Model Ship Kit to Be Built. Spanish Vessel called Santa Ana (22905-N) at 1:84 scale made by Artesanía Latina.

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.

History of Santa Ana Vessel: 19th Century Engraving.

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.

History of Santa Ana Vessel: Watercolor by R. Castex.

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.

Historia Navío Santa Ana. Batalla de Trafalgar, Pintura de John Steven Dews.

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.

In the meantime, you can read more about the Santa Ana Line Ship Wooden Model (22905-N) and you can order it at this other link. Be amazed by its beauty and go ahead and build it!

It is subject to periodic mists that make it an Eden for fishermen. There, hake, cod, salmon and tuna are found in prodigious quantities. That is why this schooner is also known as ‘The Queen of the Grand Banks’.

In 1942, despite the efforts of this captain and many others who tried to keep the ship in Nova Scotia, the Bluenose was sold to carry cargo in the West Indies.

History of HMB Endeavour: The British Ship with which James Cook discovered Australia, Now in a Fabulous Modeling Kit

If there was a fundamental ship for Humanity, in addition to the caravels of the Discovery of America, that was the British research ship HMB Endeavour of the 18th century. With this, Captain James Cook discovered Australia and made it easier to know where Tahiti, New Zealand and many other islands were located. Thanks to its existence, new animal and plant species were also discovered. Likewise, it allowed the calculation with great precision of the position in longitude by means of mathematical formulas. So the contribution of James Cook’s voyages to navigation, seamanship and geographical exploration are undoubtedly of historical importance. It is an ideal time for us to immerse ourselves, then, a little more in the history of HMB Endeavour. Precisely, a few months ago the location and existence of the wreck was confirmed, as can be read in this interesting article from Australian Geographic.

HMB Endeavour was 32 meters long, 8.9 meters wide and 3.4 meters deep. Her rigging was of the frigate type. Speaking of its armament, it had 22 guns: 10 4-pounders and 12 swivel. Regarding the sail, it had 897 square meters. This allowed it to reach speeds of 7 to 8 knots (13 to 15 km per hour).

History of the 18th Century British Survey Ship HMB Endeavour.

HISTORY OF HMB ENDEAVOUR: PIONEER OF THE MODERN OCEANOGRAPHIC RESEARCH SHIP

More than two and a half centuries ago, an English coal ship originally called the Earl of Pembroke (1764) emerged as the forerunner of the oceanographic research ship of our times. The HMB Endeavour and its own history are essential, they marked an era and a change in knowledge. It all started with the efforts of British Royal Navy Captain James Cook -at the time a lieutenant-. Mount your first major expedition to the South Sea. Being able to go to Tahiti, discovered a year earlier, to install an astronomical observatory to observe the transit of Venus in 1769. The goal? Measure the size of the Solar System.

History of the 18th Century British Ship HMB Endeavour: James Cook's First Route (Source: Wikipedia).

The history of HMB Endeavour as an exploration ship begins in Plymouth (England) in August 1768 with 94 people and supplies for a year and a half. Being a coal ship, even having been converted into a research vessel, it had enormous holds that were modified in order to store provisions. As they were used up, those spaces were occupied by instruments, plants and animals that they found during their journey. The organization of its crew was spectacular: sailors for naval operations, officers and infantrymen for shipboard discipline and external attacks, and scientists and artists to study and reflect on milestones.

On April 10th, 1769, HMB Endeavour reached Tahiti after passing through Madeira, Rio de Janeiro and Cape Horn. Unfortunately, exact measurements could not be obtained with the transit of Venus since the planet had a very diffuse profile. At least, yes, the astronomer Charles Green was able to appreciate and record it. The challenge was only achieved one hundred years later thanks to photography. In July, Cook opened a secret letter from the Navy Department urging him to find Australia.

HISTORY OF HMB ENDEAVOUR: THE DISCOVERY OF AUSTRALIA

For half a year, the HMB Endeavour circled New Zealand and realized that it was not a continent but islands. In 1770 Cook claimed them as British after mapping almost four thousand kilometers of coastline in three months.

It was precisely in April of that same year when it ran into the east coast of Australia, which it bordered towards the north until in June it ran aground on the Great Barrier Reef Coral. In this sense, he managed to free the ship, although with damage to the hull that was attempted to be repaired. After setting foot on land again, they continued west but this time he learned his lesson. A auxiliary boat led the expedition to measure the depth.

The history of HMB Endeavour continued heading west until October, the month in which it arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia. There he took advantage of three months to repair the ship, however, many lives of the crew were lost due to malaria. At Christmas, he headed home and on July 12, 1771, the port of Dover (England) received the HMS Endeavor with 38 fewer crew members.

Hull repairs in Jakarta.

After James Cook’s expedition, HMB Endeavour was used for military purposes until it was decommissioned in 1774, to be sold and renamed Lord Sandwich in 1775. Its last service was fighting in the US War of Independence. It was sunk in Narragansett Bay to prevent the French landing at Newport in the Battle of Rhode Island. Currently, as we mentioned, the location of the wreck has been certified and there is a faithful replica of the original.
