Hi,

I just start my Belem Model from Artesania Latina. I purchased it in Canada at 300 $ CAD tax and shipping included. It is a bargain if I look elsewhere on the web.

Let me first show you what is inside the box. Sorry, but I do not have so much pictures and I am beginner in showing this kinf of picture. I also purchased the Monography from AAMM at the following link : AAMM store

For now, everythings seem's good and are usual AL goodies.

And the work on the model begin :

1) Take care of some thin plywood pieces. They delaminated easily when cutting.
2) Do not necessarily follow step-by-step the instruction. Go further on the instruction and figure how the pieces should be insert and when. Spcially to be sure of the emplacement on the first floor cabin.
3) I used CA and Gorilla wood glue.
4) I paint with Vallejo paint : white prime, white acrylic, brown and orange mix together. I used waterbases SAMAN varnish in between some paint layer and in the final coating.

This is really a special kind of kit - not so much full rigged ship kits are existing. Many Thanks for showing us in detail the kit and start the building log.
Wish you Good luck and success - and show us as often as possible some updates - will be interesting to see

Thanks for your interest.
