Good morning all,
I begin today the construction of the ship L'Orient at 1/64 according to the monograph by Gérard Delacroix.
Why 1/64? Because I had the wood needed to do it on this scale.
A photo of the very beginning of the construction site ....
See you soon,
Planset Review: LE COMMERCE DE MARSEILLE (1788) - 118-guns built by master shipwright Sané planset by our member @G. DELACROIX english translation by our member @Gilles Korent The booklet and plates are presented under a hard cover 24 x 34 x 9 cm dressed with an illustrated jacket...
I am looking forward to see your work on this project - Jim, I will sponsor the chips and dips, please reserve for me a chair next to you
Thank you for your encouragement. Yes Uwe ca makes a good big ship that takes less space than 1/48. The dimensions of the frame are not thin (the equivalent of the Fleuron at 1/48).
Tomorrow, continuation of the axial framework and beginning of couples.
See you soon.
