FROM ME TOO, Don PS ANY MORE PROGRESS ON YOUR BUILD FOLLOWING THIS ONE AS I AM CONTENPLATING GETTING THIS ONE FROM ANCRA, AS I AM NOT DOING THE LE ROCHEFORT VERY WELL RIGHT NOW AND I WISH THERE WAS A LOG ON HER AS THIS IS MY FIRST FRENCH AND FIRST SCRATCH BUILD AND HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS AS THERE IS NO LOG ON THIS ONE CAUSING ME QUITE A FEW PROBLEMS, 3-D WOULD HELP VERY, VERY, MUCH. Don
Please check also the booklet - on page 25 is the same shown plus additional drawings of the line construction.
This one on the drawing seems also to be not correct, due to the fact, that it is not central but moved to the left (which would surprise me).
Unfortunately Franco Fissore is not a member here, so we can not ask him directly
yep, found it.. this is the deck camber and yep, there are many mistakes and hard to understand things for begginer in this monograph good for beginners as Ancre says Thats why my building log is stucked, I am doing all hull over again..
I have several questions about mainmast step, maybe someone could help me to clarify situation:
#1 plans didnt show rear view of mainmast step and I dont understand what must be form of four small details wich holding mainamst step I supose. Maybe you have similar places on your model or some kind of historical researches info?

Thanks in advance. The mainmast step and I whaiting your help to continue
I SURE DO LOVE THIS ONE GREATLY, I LIKE MODELS THAT THE FRAMING IS DIFFERENT, I HAVE the english instructions GREAT i probably will order the MONOGRAPH WITH MY NEXT ORDER TO ANCRE but the build is going to be a while, quite a while, your work is terriffic you should be proud would LOVE TO SEE MORE POSTS AND PICTURES. Don
I guess it is version A, means the top of these stiffeners are somehow horizontal, or following parallel to the frame form.....
between them are the bilge pumps installed in four boxes, this detail you can see explained in the Monograph booklet at page 79 Drawing 8
trying different methods of caulking. Please vote for best method for 1:36 scale.
No 2: pencil
No 3: black inked glue
No 4: Dark brown aquarelle pencil
No5 : black paper
No 6: schneider topliner
thanks in advance.
As much, as like #5, I am afraid it might be a bit big (prominent) for the scale (IMHO). Will you add treenails to the deck as well? If yes, can you make samples with three nails in-place? I suggest #6
