This is the only thing I could find online regarding the material used for these parts:
Link: 4hmodel site- need to translate.
I would at least give Maarten's suggestion a try as you already have a 3d template then if that fails I would laminate as Brian has done.
Very nice link mate. I have been trough this forum before but i never found the actual build log of this model. I guess i always get lost in translation. ROTF

Hi guys, i finally made it back to the "shipyard", i have now around 2 weeks to work on the model before going back to work.
I have started gluing the parts on the stern, it doens´t look like much work has been done but the true fact to me is that all of these parts are very much time consuming, when i came from plastic to this wood POF model i received a crash reality course on the complexity of this kind of model building.
Here is the current status,

I can fully understand your words about the work behind the stern construction - I realized it also with my La Salamandre
But we can state: Your work looks very good Thumbs-Up

Boy, that's really some model ship. I like the staging to set the frames in. I'm looking forward to building a model of the Great Republic and I'll need to make staging like that so your pictures will help me a lot. It will be a scratch model as there are no kits for this ship that I can find. I think my plans came out with about a six foot long hull so there will be lots of room for details. Ought to be fun like the Enterprise.

Hi Brito, its the laser char that is time consuming to remove it. Looking good buddy.
Indeed Brian, the laser char is a pain in the @ss to remove, but also trying to set a correct angle so that the parts fit tight, the instructions are not a major help. I would say by now i have used 70% the instructions and 30% or more your build pictures for reference and other scarce info around the web and some books.
Still a long way to go, i´ll take my time, no rush.

First time I've ever seen a kit like this one, it looks awesome. Speaking as a novice I wouldn't have the B***S to have a go at this, I take my hat off to you Brito. I hope all goes well with this build, I will be following this with much interest. I'm sure a lot of the more experienced members will help you along the way, they seem a great bunch on here. Great start anyway and happy days ahead.
Kind Regards
Alfie

Hi guys, so work continued after a long break, i have finally finished all the frames and moved on to the bow, next i can continue assembling and glue the parts on the model after correcting some angles.

Thank you for watching!
