Many thanks to all for the congratulations on my birthday.

Despite my tender age, launching 1945,
I start building a Franz.64 gunship.
Pictures / photos coming soon

Greetings

64- gunner ?!? JuHu - I am very happy to hear this

Le Fleuron or maybe the L´Artesien ? Both beautiful vessels ......

Hallo and thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

Orlop Deck,
Dividing walls and pump shaft installed.
I leave the shaft partly open to show the pumps
and the cannonball shaft with its three different calibres.

First gun deck ,
partially planked to show the substructure.

Next I will probably install the ballast stones and storage barrels.

Can anyone else show me where the 3 different sizes of cannon shot are stored and accessed? The Shot Locker looks like just one large rectangular structure, spanning vertically the hold and orlop deck, but to separate different sizes of shot, there must be partitions, or separate access doors or something.

That's the problem. In text at the top, it mentions storage for the 3 types of shot, but I don't see anything that separates 3 areas (although the comment may have been just the fact that 3 are stored, somehow). The post has a number of photos (such excellent work!), but I don't see anything like that. Here's the post.

The three compartments for the different shots are shown in the photos by Karl

The yellow arrows are showing the walls between the compartments - you have to imagine them only much higher - red, green and blue are showing the three devided areas

I have just now only the longitudinal section of the 74-gunner - No. 8 is the "ball-room"
