Just saw this beautifully done build of Artesania Latina’s Pen Duick kit built by Model Shipworld Member “Reci”.
The Pen Duick is a cutter-rigged racing sailboat built in 1898 and still participates in races today. There’s a nice photo of the deck on the Wikipedia entry…
You can follow along on the build of this model on Model Shipworld here: https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/19179-pen-duick-by-reci-finished-artesania-latina-128/&
The build log is not long, but it’s full of photos showing some nice step-by-step detail of construction.
The kit is manufactured by Artesania Latina, which is a classic and relatively inexpensive brand, and generally easy to find. The kit is a 1/28-scale plank-on-bulkhead wooden model and measures just over 29″ long and about 24″ high.
Artesania Latina produces quality kits and many, like this, feature laser-cut wooden structural parts, quality woods, brass, and cast metal fittings, rigging line, sail cloth, plus nice step-by-step, color illustrated instructions.
If you’re interested in building this Artesania Latina kit, we’ve got it listed on Ages of Sail here: https://www.agesofsail.com/ecommerce/artesania-latina-pen-duick-22418.html
Stock is limited, so hurry if you want one! Ω

Reblogged this on Hyde Street Pier Model Shipwrights and commented:
Here’s a classic sailboat built around the same time as the Gracie S. and the Freda. This kit looks like it will make a beautiful model, and it looks like there’s a nice build log on someone’s build on the Nautical Research Guild’s MSW forum.
