Unusual that the first three sessions are for the middle, bow and stern ribs of the ship and the fourth is for the keel and berth which I assume is a building jig. Must be a new way of building the ship which I am not familiar with. Very curious to see actual photos or plans of the build. I have seen the same listing on Taobao also.
I can imagine that this is build in sections. See here a project caf did on the Ambitieux bow.

And he is offering a rebate scheme for new and excisting customers. Be aware this is translated from Chinese by google translate. He is directly selling his models via the Taobao shop which you can find here, also in Chinese only. This vessel is not on yet.

Caf is mentioned in the English translation as Rotation model or Spin model, sorry google translate again.:)

So glad to see a La Renommée kit that is based on Boudriot's plans and not the Swedish Jupiter as EuroModel did. The CAF website is a bit sketchy though, a lot of the copy and art he uses is picked up from other websites (like mine) and some of the ship photos are from gaming sights. But "Huzzah!" to CAF for offering us a new kit!

Visit www.larenommeeship.com for more info on the ship and her captains.

Hi Don,

I havent bought something from Taobao yet, but I know some of the people here online did.
So it should be possible to do it.

I suggest you Don just drop the Taobao adventure and email Max as Brian said too.

For those who enjoy nautical fiction, I'm publishing a historical novel of la Renommée with F ireShip Press which should be out later this year entitled "The Ship's Carpenter." This is the first book of a series called Tween Sea & Shore dealing with real and fictional characters who are linked to the frigate. The captains and history of the ship are followed very closely in my story. Other books will continue their story and hopefully will come out later. Keep a sharp eye for them, mates.
