Hello modeling friends.

Animated by the pictures by Gregory Franchetti
and the drawings by Jean Boudriot,
I try to build the three gun decks as a cross-sectional on a scale 1/24.

First, I made an auxiliary construction four the mounting and alignment of the frames,
to strengthen them , the bar timbers and the deck beam girdes were installed,
the first gun deck was planked.

The whole now has the required stability for the further interior design.

Hello Karl,
I am a huge fan of your work and I look forward to this next project of yours. About 4 or 5 years ago, I too built a larger scale portion of a generic gun deck. This was when I had a larger lathe and wanted to practice with it and made a wooden cannon. After completing the cannon I decided 5o also make a gundeck to help my cannon. I was not sure of its size until I bought a 10 inch "Walking Dead" action figure. I determined that the scale may be 1:7 but then again I might be wrong. Here are a few fotos of what I constructed.

You have done very precise lathe work for the mold casting and your abilities with the outcome are remarkable. Excellent cannons for your gun decks which all show a dedication to detailed work and presentation that the fully completed and armed cross section will provide. Rich (PT-2)

I fully agree with PT-2. Exelent work. This brings me back to 1988, where a carpenter woth his Lathe made the Gunpibe in Wood, and then later mould with "TIN", yes they were heavy. It was fore a Spanish Fregat build 1989-1991 -totaly schratch build. Still have the originals PLANS, allthoug they are starting -in the folding point -to get week.
