Artesania Latina Marina II Fishing Boat

Postby Donnie » Wed Jul 29, 2015 3:05 pm

I decided on the "Artesania Latina Marina II Fishing Boat" as my next project. It will be on order soon, shipped to the front door, and then the build log will begin.

I am ordering from Hobbylinc and the description is as follows:
"Brass nails and metal deck fittings. Various types of wood for authentic appearance. Different weight and color thread for rigging.
Length: 24" (610mm)
Height: 17.7" (450mm)
Beam (Width): 6.2" (157mm)
Scale: 1/50 (6/25" = 1ft)"
Current Build Prep: Panart San Felipe 1:75
Completed Build: Santisima Trinidad

Here is the beginning of the Build Log of the Artesania Latina Marina II Tuna Trawler. My first impression was WOW ! Such a departure from other manufactures contents. What stood out to me was the careful planned wrapping of all the contents each in shrink wrapped clear plastic. Even the plastic parts bins were each shrink wrapped. All the wooden planks bundled and shrink wrapped on their own as well as the flat wooden pieces. The flat pieces were attached wrapped to a heavy flat cardboard to keep parts flat with zero warping !!

The image below reveal the nature of the contents of the box. This evening was spent making a simple building board and also dry fitting the False Keel with Bulk Heads. The pictorial instructions are the best I have seen (from my perspective and also from my limited kits I have bought in the past). It seems obvious to me that AL spent a lot of time on this kit from both a presentation of components as well as what seems to be the ease of building it.

I can see this being a nice fun build that will not tax your nerves or abilities (or at least that's my first impression).

So, on to the build:

Nothing really fancy here but putting the frame together. Pieces fit great with no mods.

Hi Donnie, is this model purely a static model or is it an RC model?
I agree with you that it does not look like taxing model, looks like it may suit a beginner?
I'll be back in Australia next week, things didn't go to plan here in South Africa. Hopefully I can carry on building in September again.

Hi Eric,
I am building as a static. I wanted something low impact that would build kinda quickly and not be so taxing. This will give me some hands back into building again until I can figure out a master build at some point.

Glad to see you back in the saddle again Donnie. This may be a simple build, but they still have there rewards. Ths paddle wheeler I built took only 700 hours and was an intermediate model but still had some challenges and made a beautiful model almost 4 feet long. It had over 6,200 pieces and was fun to build. While you are still working, they make a great choice since time is limited.
So, Enjoy your build and the fact that it only takes a small case to display when finished.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Problems are just challenges waiting for your solution.

Thanks Gary for taking a peek. Well, I think this model is going to take a while. Its not going to snap together like my first impression.

The fairing of the hull is quite aggressive not only on the sides, but on top where the deck is. The Trawler seems to have quite a 'sweep to fore and aft' on the deck. Seems like I am going to be spending a lot of time fairing the hull on this to make [the one piece deck] fit right. Yes, the one piece deck will be outfitting with individual planking decking. But, I got to get the fore and aft sweep done - a lot of filing / sanding to come.

I want to avoid having a warp this time (if I can help it).

That is a heck of a bend the way that deck fits. Seems like it would be heavy in the front and crash hard into the waves.
Happy modeling,

The only thing I thought of is that the main steering room or captains room sits center and probably offsets a lot of that. The write up claims the structure of the sweeping bow is designed for rough waters. But still. I guess it's like that deadliest catch program. It really gets rough out there.
Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.
