The new ancre monographie of Franco Fissore about the S. Caterina - Traditional Mediterranean Fishing Vessel GOZZO - 1759
was presented by his own model built in scale 1:12 in Rochefort

I think this will be one of the standard beginners scratch built monographie

-> a planset review you can find in the following post

Synopsis:

The Felucca N.S. Del Rosario, towed the Gozzo Santa Caterina.
The bark that I propose to describe is a Gozzo of 1759, used as a
harbor or fishing vessel, carrying one mast with a « calcet » (mastcap),
a « berthelot » (bowsprit), a main lateen yard, and a foresail.
A typical Mediterranean vessel, it was very important along the
coasts of Liguria as well as the Riviera.
Documentation relating to this small vessel is rather sketchy. It consists
in some iconographic records and even fewer manuscript documents.
In spite of all this, we have collected sufficient documentation to
be able to put together a monograph that will enable you to build a
beautiful, accurate and detailed timber-frame model. Although historical documentation is rather sparse, graphical documentation
has been used to draw all the details of the framing and furniture.
Thus leaving you, I wish that you may construct, according to your own preferences, a model worthy of a museum.

In scale 1:12 the hull is appr. 40cm long, fully rigged 52cm

This is the beautiful model in scale 1:12 built by the author Franco Fissore, which was a part of the International Convention of Ship modeling in Rochefort I visited recently

CONTENTS:

Cardboard shirt with flaps.
A 72-page booklet in 23x31 cm format including 56 pages in full color, along with 19 drawings and 183 color photographs.
The monograph contains the 11 plates at the 1/12 scale necessary for the construction of the timber frame.

LIST OF THE PLATES / DRAWINGS:

1 Elevation, waterline plan, body plan.
2 Caption
3 Completed timber framing, elevation and plan view.
4 Complete frames.
5 Disassembled frames; floors and futtocks
6 Top view and inside arrangements
7 Top view of the hull and crosssections.
8 The completed hull.
9 Masts, lateen yard, blocks, sails, grapnel, oars, bucket, bailing scoop
10 Plan view of the hull an rigging nomenclature.
11 Hauling (beach capstan)


Resumee:

The booklet contents also a huge number of useful photos, showing the different construction steps. so you get also a very detailed building log within the monographie.
To show in parts a "building log" is new in the monographies from ancre and gives a very good help fro the modeler!
This planset is absolute complete and gives all information about the vessel itself and the construction of the model
The plans are complete (incl. all frames) and show every detail necessary to build a wonderful smaller vessel in scratch.
Based on the very reasonable price and the completeness of the drawings it is a very good POF-project for the beginner and / or intermediate scratch modeler.

This planset is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
