SYNOPSIS:

Emancipated from their origins dating from the end of the 17th century, the first corvettes appeared as a distinct family in the 1730s. From that date, and contrary to certain types of ship that will disappear more or less quickly, they will evolve and continue until today.

The architectural study presented here is based on the first constructions of this family. The choice fell on the corvettes of the years 1740/1750 for which we have firsthand information given by eminent manufacturers of this time.

This monograph is based on the plans of a corvette started by builders Ollivier father and son in the years that will follow the appearance of a well identified type.

The chosen plan has the advantage of having been used for the construction of three corvettes whose decor of each of them has come down to us. From the same set of plans proposed in the monograph, we will be able to choose a specific decoration. This formula offers the choice to diversify the models.

This book details the architecture, the fittings, the equipment and the rigging of a corvette of 12 guns of years 1745. The plans are at 1/36 for a relative ease of execution with a plate at 1/48 for a realization on this scale. The entire framework is drawn, it will allow the construction of a model with all the rigor desired by arsenal modeling.

L'Amarante, a 12-gun Corvette, was built in Brest 1747 as the last in a series of three (La Palme and L'Anemone were the first two). The plans were made by Joseph-Louis Ollivier, who was only 15 at the time when the construction of La Palme began in 1744 and he was undoubtedly helped by his father, Blaise Ollivier, who at that time was a recognized naval architect who, among other projects, had made the plans for Le Fleuron. The definition of a corvette took form in the mid-18th century and was described as ".. a fast sailing ship with fewer than 20 guns" and corvettes eventually replaced the light frigates.

L'Amarante was completed in december 1747 and in March 1748 it captured the British kaperskib Prince of Wales. Between July and November 1751 L'Amarante participated in a scientific expedition off the coast of Spain and Portugal. In June 1757 it leaves Rochefort together with four frigates and one other corvette to escort a convoy to Brest and it also performed convoy service in 1758. In October 1759 L'Amarante departs from Dunkirk with five frigates and 1200 men for a planned landing attempt in Ireland. It is on this occasion L'Amarante sank off Saint-Malo in February 1760.

L'Amarante had a length of 84 feet (French) 6 inches (27.44 m), width 22 feet (7.15 m) depth of 10 feet 1 inch (3.27 m). Fully loaded, a tonnage of 232. The armament consisted of twelve 4-pounder iron guns. The drawings for the ship's decorations were done by Caffiery.

By using Blaise Ollivier's original as well as various contemporary plans and descriptions Gerard Delacroix has created an excellent monograph.

Thanks for the review Uwek

I just decided and ordered the L'Amarante monograph after reading of your review. :)

L'Amarante will be my second project after Blandford crossection group build.

But first I must finish Montanes.

Best Regards

Bilal
