  2. 1343/5000 Hello to all the modelers. This is my first time that I publish in this forum and I want to present myself to you with a work that I have just finished, first of all I will tell a little the story of how this model came to my hands and the work I have done with it. A few days ago I bought a model that as it puts in the matter is the Rhoda Mary of 1898 of Artesanía Latina, of three suits. The state of the model is unfortunate, some parts are missing, such as roda, boom and some dick but the wood is in good condition and although its builder did not give a very fine finish at least the helmet is straight with what I have decided to do a thorough restoration taking advantage of everything that is profitable. The wooden elements of the deck like hatches, kitchen etc, I have made them new and the metal parts I have cleaned and polished. Once I have left the hull of the ship naked I have removed the varnish scraping with a cutter, then varnishing. For the rigging I have had the blueprints provided by the modeler Ian. To which I have been able to contact through the mail of this forum and that kindly sent me all the documentation that I had from the other side of the Atlantic. The Latino Craft model originally did not bring the ship's sails, but they were made by buying canvas from a local haberdashery. Both the technique for making the ship's sails and the rope rolls I guided by two Youtube videos of a Russian model who put your link in case someone can help. I hope the images can help some modelers. Thank you. the coils of rope https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GiElaWUmMk Ship sails
