I have started the construction of a new model to add to my collection, which will be number 67.
It is a tartana from Liguria in a scale of 1: 200. I use as a main source of documentation the monograph of the tartana Gemma, by Franco Fissore, published in Ancre, although I will also use other complementary sources, such as the book "Vele italiane de la costa occidentale" by Sergio Bellabarba and Eduardo Guerrieri, and old photographs of complementary form.
For the construction of the hull use Finnish plywood of 0.6 mm. to make the frames.A6DFD18D-D9F4-4A02-A2EA-8BFD09C1D671.jpeg2F23509F-15EE-4227-AAFD-BA70C9170FE3.jpeg1BABC5F5-8B63-4D33-8D72-2079DAB97DA6.jpeg2415D78A-AC34-4545-81F6-0B3001EAC9BD.jpeg29429DB4-48D8-4F47-A9DD-29E8F3E4402D.jpeg834C6EBC-E262-41E9-841F-6A8B822C096C.jpegA6928514-2445-4A96-88F3-2CAC6D33CF42.jpeg

A lot of thanks for your comments. On this weekend I closed the hull. As the model is going to be painted, I have not taken too much care of the placement of the strakes, which I would have done if the hull were in exposed wood or in a clinker built instead of a carvel built.
Then I have sanded and polished the hull before proceeding, as next step, to tear out the false frames. To harden the hull before its sanding I have covered it, as if it were a topcoat varnish, with a layer of liquid cyanoacrylate.

Really here the details are extremely well appreciated .... Although with these pictures they do not give an idea of the real size.
