The plan (one plate only) is an interesting study-draft
concerning a typical italian brig-goletta (without square sails at the main
mast) of the beginning of the 20th century, but the
construction of¬† a model from such plate could be undertaken from a
well skilled modelmaker only and, moreover, with additional
documentation for the deck.equipments and¬† mostly for masting and
The plate was designed from a wellknown italian naval architect (Mr. Sergio Spina) by
taking over lines and hull details from the real ship, but it’s¬†(enough) complete for what is concerning the hull framing only.
The deck details (planking,¬† capstan, pumps, racks for the belaying
pins and so on) are indeed¬†¬†completely missing and the
masting and rigging plan¬† is only a sketch.
As conclusion ,¬†to build an ARALDO model it would be absolutely necessary to get¬†some more additional documentation as well, i.e. our code¬†¬†1490¬†– (DELFO¬† and¬† ¬†ROMEO¬†– Two plates from Mr Spina also) – or the code 1010 and or 1013 (POLARIS¬† and¬† GRECALE ), two well detailed plans from Mr. Alvaro Matteucci, a shipmodel designer who did produce a lot of plans specifically drawn for modelmakers
