The HMS VICTORY in scale 1:100 based on a plastic kit - extremely bashed by Daniel Fischer as I know, there is not really any plastic on board
This model was in my trunk during traveling to Rochefort. I try to get some good photos directly from Daniel, in order to show you the real quality

One of the smallest models of the show....The tagboat / Remorqueur Le CYRANO built in scale 1:87 by Jean-Pascal Ducret.
He told me, that he started to built a plastic kit in scale 1:32 with 36 parts for his HO-railway......he thought, that the kit should be bashed.
- He started to make researching for the real ship, and he produced a model completely out of brass - great small model .

I had never seen something like this before, what I am now sharing with you.
And this or something similar will be also part of the future in ship modeling.


From UK a ship modeler named Magnus McLeod was presenting his sculptures and figurines of his 74-gun ship HMS ROYAL OAK (1769) in scale 1:48.
Based on the size of the model he left the model at home, but brought his prepared 3D-printed decorations to Rochefort.
Magnus was so greatful to hand over to me some photos and a small printed booklet in which he is explaining the status of his model and as well the technique he used for the 3-D printing

And the model of the gelére La FLEUR de LIS - 1690 built in scale 1:36 by masterbuilder Bruno Rimlinger.
The drawings are made by Gerard Delacroix - check also the following post with related info about the drawing set.

Speciality of this model:
The deck part of the galere can be removed, in order to see the complete inside structure of the ship - amazing executed and model

During the day I met Mr. Berti as well as Gerard Delacroix

Here is a photo of Gerard together with myself (Gerard is the better looking one)

IMG_03831.jpg

I want to take to opportunity to show here also the monographie of the La Fleur de Lis (I have a copy at home), a ship, which is not very often built, but very interesting.

Take a look at the web-page of Gerard:
http://gerard.delacroix.pagesperso-orange.fr/galere/plaquette-e.htm

The description of the ship:
For over 3,000 years, galleys sailed throughout European waters in various shapes and under different names, from the sun-drenched Mediterranean to the mists of the Baltic Sea. Originally a commercial vessel, the galley was soon transformed into a war ship in the ancient world and reached the zenith of its technical development in the 17th century, before disappearing in France during the 1750s.
The somewhat mysterious construction and fitting-out of these formidable ships have always fascinated students of early maritime history. Although galleys were often considered to be simply built ships, by the end of the 17th century the galley had inherited extremely complex and refined architectural lines, much more so, in fact, than other vessels with which it co-existed.
The evolution of the galley, whose history spans thirty centuries, allowed it to develop and refine a structure that had to consolidate strength, lightweight, and performance. These features required novel and original solutions that have rarely been described and have never been systematically illustrated.
With approximately 230 plates drawn to perspective, this study offers a minute account of how a galley was built in the 1690s, from the drawing board to the launching of the ship. The text describes the various stages of construction in detail, including provisions for stowage and rigging. The study also includes a description of rowing techniques and procedures that were directly related to aspects of building or equipping the ship. The commentary on the 26 plates (drawn to 1:48 scale) explicates the drawings of the different components or assemblies that were required to build, equip, and rig a 26-bench galley. The plates include a drawing of the framework of the entire ship, which will allow the ship’s model builder to complete his model with completely accurate proportions. In conclusion, nearly fifty colour photographs of a ship’s model in various stages of completion illustrate this extensive 240 page study whose table of contents is as follows:


The drawing set contents a booklet with 240 pages as well as 26 drawings in scale of 1:48

I showed this video already once, but it fits very well to show the high quality of the drawing set
