Dear Colleagues, please let me present my first model made from the ground-up – the model of French military schooner «La Jacinthe». From the drafts of the monography Jean Boudriot. I used pear tree and painted hornbeam. Scale 1:42 Technical characteristics of the model: length 895 mm, width 285 mm, height 670 mm.
In the process of building I have used as example the works of Dmitriy Shevelev and Slavyan Snarlev.
I finished my work on the 23 of September 2016. I had a photo report of the work, I decided to post it, maybe it could useful to someone.
My best regards, Alexander.

After taking measuring, I had to fix the outlines in certain places, glue some extra laths, and then finished up with rat-file. In this case asp was a good choice – the wood is not too siftproof and can be nicely processed with sandpaper.8006080061

Thank you, mu dear friend. I had a lot of work ahead of me, many mistakes that I had to correct later.
