San Ildefonso by OcCre ( 1: 70 )

Postby Sjors55 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 1:33 pm

Hello everybody,

My surprise has finally arrived. My neighbors/friends went on vacation to Spain. They brought me something that I really wanted and I want to share it with all of you.

I want to thank Ricardo (gaz-666 on MSW) for all his help in making this possible. He was my contact with a Spanish hobby shop to get this kit.
Normally you have to be a member of the OcCre club before you can buy this kit. When you are a member, you are receiving 1 box every 1 1/2 month. So, in total it will take about a year before you have all the boxes and there are 8 of them.

I didn't want to wait that long, so Ricardo has sent e-mails to see if it was possible to get all the boxes at once (in one buy). And the results are in the pictures.

Ricardo, thank you very much for all your help in making this purchase possible :handgestures-thumbupleft: :greetings-clapyellow:

* * * * *

And now I like to present to you the San Ildefonso.

Length - 1290 mm
Hight - 895 mm
Width - 470 mm

In 1784 work on the construction of the ship San Ildefonso began in Cartagena, based on a design by José Romero de Landa, who had been asked to build a 74-gun ship that would serve as a prototype for the future vessels of the Spanish Royal Navy, and under his direction.

Following favourable reports from her sea trials, she was adopted as the model for another seven ships that were built over the coming years, and which came to be known as the "Ildefonsinos".
After seeing action on numerous occasions, both in the Mediterranean Squadron and the Ocean Squadron, she took part in the battles of Cape St. Vincent in 1797 and Trafalgar, in 1805. At Trafalgar, under Commodore Don José Vargas, and forming a part of the combined fleet's observation squadron, she was one of the fastest in the fleet. 34 of her crew members were killed and another 148 wounded.

I think it is a twin sister of the Montañes.
This build will be very slow because I also have Le Mirage to finish.
She is my main build, but I know that I can't keep my hands out of the box. So sometimes you will see a little progress on the San Ildefonso.

I hope you will also join and guide me in this build.

Thank you and enjoy watching!

Sjors

Hello Sjors,

Your wish came through, San Ildefonso has docked and she is ready to be build.
A lot of boxes with a lot of goodies inside :D

And every box has it's own drawing / manual inside :techie-studyinggray:

Good luck with this build.

Take care,

Anja

Juat how my Nuestra Senora del Pilar arrived at my office but only six boxes. It was released for general distribution and Model Expo had about two dozen of those kits for sale about four years after I first saw it on the OcCre web site.

Congrats Sjor, and Ricardo and I have had a discussion of the OcCre Club....which he and I do not like plus we can't join the club here in the USA..yet they say.

Hi Dear,

Thanks :D
I know that you gonna help me with this one...

@ Popeye

It was fun to wading to those boxes :D
I think you don't have to wait to long before I start building.......
I have a great example on you!
I know myself and I know that I can not keep my hands out of the box.
So it's gonna be two builds at the same time.
But the Mirage has the priority

@ Børge,

Thanks :D
And how is everything with you?
It's going on the right direction?

@ John,

Also Thanks!
I can also not be a member of the OcCre club.
I think that you have to be from Spain.....
But with the help of Ricardo I have this kit :banana-dance: :banana-rock:
I think it is the twin sister of the Montañes.

Interesting way of sending a ship. Guess that way you spread the payment over a year's time so it does not seem to hurt the pocket book as much. What size will the finished model be?
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Probably the same size as the Montanes, since it is a "sister" ship.

The Montanes is said to be around 50" long, 35" high and about 18 1/2" width, the yards don't you know, when finished.
