Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is the Latina 1:85 scale US Constellation (American Frigate, 1798)
Wooden Ship Kit.
For advanced modelers.

It is difficult to encounter in the history of sailing vessels a ship
with so many diverse activities during her active life as the
US CONSTELLATION. In fact she started her active life in 1798 and was
withdrawn from sevice in 1955. Her missions were various: she seized numerous
ships, and defended the Hawaiian Islands against annexation by the British in
1845 and 1849. It was also the first US warship to visit China in 1842 and
assigned as a school ship in 1871.
Today she brings back glorious memories to tens of thousands of tourists that
visit her each year in Baltimore. If she could talk, she could tell us a
great deal of American History.

COMMENTS

Detailed instructions tell how to proceed with the first layer of the
hull, then in (Step-29) how to proceed with the second layer.
This model is a "doubled hulled" ship. The modeler will want to sand
the first layer some so the second layer will lie down smoothly
to give good lines. Also, each mast and yard arm must be sanded to
the correct shape. Detailed written and photo manuals, with number
cross-references for each manual. All deck accessories must be built,
painted or stained for added realism. Taking the time to do the
detail work will give, a truly realistic boat model and very
rewarding building experience.

Some additional tools that might be helpful to the modeler;
Spring tension pliers
Brush (fine)
Hand Drill (HCAR0696)
Plank bender (LATR7550)
