Waterline Marker for Model Ships: Indispensable Naval Modeling Tool for Boat Hulls

Our modelers friends had been asking us for a waterline marker from our house, from Artesania Latina. They know of the extensive experience of our firm in the creation of effective and efficient ship modeling tools. After our 3D computer designers and our modelers developed a very conscientious joint work, we present our Waterline Marker (27649). You can click here to acquire it quickly and make your own tool workshops more complete. Your wishes are already a reality! We always read the opinions of our customers and fellow fans very seriously!

Waterline Marker for Model Ships Hulls (27649) by Artesania Latina.

The waterline marker is one of the most necessary modeling tools during model ship building. This very useful product allows the modeler to mark that line around the ship, also thanks to the pencil included. Includes measurements in both metric and imperial systems. In this sense, it is 23 centimeters or 9 inches tall to be able to perform tasks on different naval miniatures depending on its size. In addition, it has a mechanism that makes it easy to raise, lower and fix the pencil to paint the line where your scale model demands, it is adjustable in height.

Waterline Marker for Model Ships Hulls (27649) by Artesania Latina.

The waterline marker is made from precision laser cut plywood parts so assembly is a breeze. We recommend the use of dense cyanoacrylate and accelerator (27650) -sold separately- to glue the different pieces, fix them so that they are much more stable. In short, it makes it easy to mark the line on the hull of the ship model with total precision. In general, it can be used as a gauge to mark lines parallel to the work surface. But… How do you use the waterline marker correctly?

HOW TO USE THE WATERLINE MARKER

First of all, to maintain the ship models stable, position the ship’s keel well on its exhibition base or on our hull support (27011) for models with false keel up to 15.748” (400mm), for sale separately. The stern and bow must be balanced at the proper heights.

Hull Support (27011) for Ship Models with false keel up to 15.748'' (400mm) by Artesania Latina.

On the other hand, the waterline marker helps us navigate by painting the ship from bow to stern to trace that mark. In this way, the waterline is always it remains at the same height and the finishes will be much better when it comes to varnishing or painting with colors. When the ship is positioned, use a level you have at your workshop so that the naval model is also balanced from port to starboard.

Waterline Marker for Model Ships Hulls (27649) by Artesania Latina.

Consult the assembly instructions of the vessel. Be sure of the height at which you should paint the water line. Place marker and pencil at desired height without painting. When you’re in the right place, move the marker from bow to stern while paying attention to where the pencil goes. After making that run and you are at the stern, see if that is where you have to start and end the line. If this is not the case, tilt the naval model slightly from the bow or stern to bring it into its correct position.

Now you can plot. Place the pencil against the hull of the ship. Do not force anything and move the marker making sure that the lower base does not rise from where it rests. The fixing wedge that the height tool has will help you to keep the pencil completely in its straight position. Even so press little so that the line is perfect. And ready! Fast and easy!

The Bluenose was operating in the Grand Banks region along with dozens of other vessels. This is a peculiar area of ​​the North Atlantic, comprised between the coast of Canada and Labrador. It is subject to periodic mists that make it an Eden for fishermen. There, hake, cod, salmon and tuna are found in prodigious quantities.

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.

Naval Modeling Tools: Build your Model Ships Kits with Specific Ones

The wooden ship models are beautiful once they have been assembled. Until that moment, the modeler must go through a detailed and prolonged construction process for which she/he needs some tools. So, Artesania Latina has created a catalogue of specific naval modeling tools so that certain works on the model can be carried out with greater precision, speed and ease.

Catalogue of Naval Modeling Tools made by Artesania Latina.

So we are going to review all these tools so that our modelers friends can know about their existence and what they are used for depending on the task. We start by listing them:

Let’s get to know them all in depth under these lines!

ELECTRIC PLANK BENDER AND PLANK BENDER FOR SHIP MODELING

The electric plank bender 220 volt (27074-1) is a tool for naval modeling and other crafts aimed at modellers in the European market. This wonderful tool allows you to bend and shape the wooden slats up to 3mm thick of your model ships in order to give them the curved shape of your hulls. You will get extraordinary results, guaranteed. Of course, we recommend that, for an optimal result, you moisten the wood beforehand.

Naval Modeling Tools made by Artesania Latina: Electric Plank Bender 220 Volts (27074-1).

The contents of the electric plank bender kit are the following:

  • 220 volt electric soldering iron.
  • Brass tip for bending wood.
  • Metal support to prevent the soldering iron from burning the work surface.
  • Screwdriver to tighten the tip to the device.
  • Wooden template with compound curves.
  • As a gift or bonus, a jar of white glue for modelers.

Naval Modeling Tools made by Artesania Latina: Electric Plank Bender 220 Volts (27074-1).

Our modelers friends from the American market couldn’t use it due to voltage issues. So we have thought of them and, as a new in 2022, we have created the 110-volts electric plag bender with an adapted plug (27074-AM).

Naval Modeling Tools made by Artesania Latina: Electric Plank Bender 110 Volts (27074-AM).

For modelers who prefer more artisanal methods when it comes to bending strips and assembling their naval models, we offer the manual plank bender (27024).

MAGNETIC NAILER FOR MODEL BUILDING

The magnetic nailer (27023) by Artesania Latina is one of the essential naval modeling tools for models that need nails to build. It facilitates fast and easy nailing in wood during the assembly of the hull of model ships, but also when fixing the deck elements. It is important to note that, in order for the tips to stick to the nailer, they must be made of iron or contain iron.

Magnetic Nailer for Model Building (27023) by Artesania Latina.

How to use? Apply moderate pressure to the nailer, so you can drive the nail straight and accurately. After entering the wood, we recommend finishing off the tip with the modeller’s hammer (27017) or by tapping the handle of the nailer if the modeling enthusiast has advanced knowledge and skills.

Magnetic Nailer for Model Building (27023) by Artesania Latina.

Otro consejo: taladre mínimamente la superficie. Use un taladro con broca igual o menor a las puntas que se van a clavar o con la misma punta para que el diámetro de la hendidura no sea mayor a la de la punta.

HULL SUPPORT FOR SHIP MODELS

More specific, it’s impossible! The hull support for model ships (27011) is another of the naval modeling tools you need to be able to work comfortably on them. It is highly recommended for holding naval models with a false keel of up to approximately 400 mm. On this aspect, the hull support is valid for the miniature replicas of the 19000 series, 20100 and some of the 20400 of Latin Crafts.

Thanks the hull support you can hold the hull of the boat you are building and kepp immobile, leaving both hands free. It’s great, for example, for keeping the hull level and static when tracing the waterline. It has a pivot point to tilt the helmet to the ideal working position. The hull fastening and the pivot point of the bracket are fixed by means of thumbscrews. Including two metal mini clamps to fix the support to the edge of the work table. That said, it is one of the essential naval modeling tools in your workshop.
