Hi Uwe !

First I wish you a very happy new year 2019 my friend !

"La Renommée" is stopped for the moment, I intend to resume in March normally.
Since Rochefort, I work on my other project, a Gribeauval gun. It's been a while since I thought about it and I intend to lead the two projects alternately so as not to tire ...

I hope you're okay ...

See you !

Patrick

@Péji Thank you for showing us such a lot of details. Your tecnique with the rabbet i have saved for later works.
Maybe here is a good idea for you. You can glue the paper on the wood perfect with Fixogum. Its fix very well during the work, but its removeable without any tools. And it doesnt makes waves in the paper, which is a problem with any kind of glue.

Hello gentlemen,

After a few months without activity on La Renommée, the building site will restart ...

Hard to get back to work. After the barrels, I will continue to the back. Two or three photos to locate :

The lantern will be the next goal ...

Good evening gentlemen and ... thank you for your encouragement!

Finally, after a few tests, I tried the adventure and ... I won !!!!

I was satisfied with a simple little "first price" blowtorch, some paste and a little refractory stone, and here is the result :














The base is not fixed yet ... I'll see for the windows and the candle before. I even managed to close the ring by brazing it.

I think I understood how to braze, finally I made myself a "mountain" when in the end it is not very complicated. Even during my tests I did not manage to melt my pieces (others of course: I did not want to start all over again!)

To be continued ...

Good evening to you !

Patrick
