    Le Coureur 1:48 CAF model by Christian

    Hi everybody! Received my kit on monday, shipping was very very quickly! Book by Ancre arrived yesterday. Went through the parts and recognised, that the parts of the jig are warped. Does this matter or is that fixed by building it and fixing the bottom parts on a solid plate? I also browsed...

    Le Coureur 1776 CAF Model by OT1138

    Hi everyone, I received my CAF model recently and like others, was missing E1/E2. Seeing as I had to wait for these to arrive as well as the Ancre monograph, I thought I would start with the smaller boat, some barrels and creates from the associated kits. At the very least, I hoped to get a...

    Le Coureur 1776, model 1:48 by Adi

    After the nice colleagues here persuaded me to start my own log, I decided to do so. After I was impressed by the accuracy of fit of the parts from the beginning, I started to remove the char layer. Another possibility to grind the stuff gently and carefully was to use an elastic silicone...

    Le Coureur 1776, CAF model 1:48 by Poul

    I'm still waiting for the HMS Alert 1776 kit which I wanted to make my very first build. For now I do not want to build 2 kits simultaneously so it will most likely take a long time before I start on Le Coureur. However, I have been waiting since May and since I received Le Coreur kit from CAF I...
