The man works most of his time in a truck. But, in his free moments, he is dedicated exclusively to the assembly of a ship with his family. Although it is not just just one, but the General Belgrano Cruise . It was sunk on 2 May 1982 during the G uerra de las Malvinas . The sad event took place as a result of the attack of the British nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror.So the neighbor of the capital entrerriana wanted to honor all the lives that were lost in the Atlantic that day. That way, little by little he was building a dream that can already be felt today.
Sergio explained that the replica was performed on a scale of 1:23. In this regard, the boat is 8.12 m long, one metre of beam and the hull is approximately 85 cm of strut . But he still needs to build a superstructure of 1.40 m more, as I told El Once, a local medium. It also has a mechanic of a fiat 125 car , with the original box and has a transmission or horn. In addition, he clarified that creation is intended to be navigated and manned . So wait for invitations to come up so people can appreciate it live and live over the river .
As for the motivations that led him to recreate the historic Crucero General Belgrano, the engine was recognition . The man narrated that he did it to thank all the veteran brothers of Malvinas . Both those who returned, and those who didn't have that opportunity. For him they are indisputable heroes of the Argentine people and it was the humble expression he found to represent them. Even, it was always in his head to do such a job. It is that, at a very young age, he began to turn to naval modeling, an activity that deeply fills it.
Finally, Sergio said he started with the construction of the model on April 2, 2017 , to make it more symbolic. Therefore, for three years he spent his unemployed times to move forward with the replication. However, there is still a way to go and he estimates that it takes about two more years to see it finished. With emotion, he claims that in life he always had two dreams . The first was to start a family, which succeeded and, the second, to start the armed of this ship.
Nothing was the same again after May 2, 1982. Those who watched it on television at that time it marked their hearts forever. While the young people who were not yet born had to learn about it in our schools and through books. Argentines cannot, nor do we want to, be indifferent to the sinking of the General Belgrano Cruise . It was 323 souls that covered the water that afternoon. There were 1023 crew members who were surrounded by chaos, despair, sadness and cold. Some younger and some more adults. It's very difficult not to empathize with what happened. That's why everyone processes and honors it in his own way. Sergio's is this one.
