This Freshman Course is based on the Artesania Latina kit, Mayflower. This course consists of 12 chapters and covers the complete construction of the kit including masting and rigging. It is ideal for modelers with some model shipbuilding experience.

No modifications are made to the design of the kit. The hull planking consists of two layers. The hull is left natural. The paintings on the side of the ship are provided as PDF files that can be printed on glossy sticker paper.

Although sail material is included in the kit, this course does not cover the making of sails or rigging of sails. However, if you purchase the course with the photo CD, the free mini-practicums that you will receive includes a mini-practicum on making sails. The kit plans show how the sails are rigged.

With this course, the modeler will learn how to plank the hull of the model ship, how to build deck furniture, masts and spars, and how to do rigging on a 3 masted ship. The course teaches many of the basics of model shipbuidling and is a stepping stone to more complex models.

The kit must be purchased separately and is available from
