In addition some prospects, a very interesting photo booklet showing photos of the contemporary L`Égyptienne model
and the calendar for this year, which I was still missing

Somehow it is like Christmas and Birthday at the same day.....

Here is a link to ancre, where you can read more about the publications - nevertheless I will present them all in future book and planset reviews

Uwe,
I'm showing this post to my wife to show her that there are respectable people that are even more insane about all this ship stuff than I am ! I just ordered Le Coureur, and L'Egyptienne monographs also, and received the books on the uniforms of the French Marines, and the history of the French Frigates a few weeks ago.....So many books, so little time.....

Drawings with plans are all in the book!
Ok thanks, I received separate plans that came with "The Restoration Warship" book.
I just went on to the author's website and noticed that he now sells the plans separately.

Very interesting. Thank you. I hope you will do a review.

Just made a review, maybe better to say a "Look Inside" - this subject is too complicated and I have still have to learn a lot, so it is definitely too early to give a correct comment and define an opinion. But you can find look Inside photos and the complete contents of every single book.

and

I ordered in addition some other books of this subject. These books I am expecting next week:

Lehrgang für Hilfsfräser: Anleitung zur Bedienung von Fräsmaschinen und Anfertigung von Werkstücken
Lehrgang für Hilfsdreher: Einführung zum Arbeiten an der Drehmaschine

and
Drehen und Fräsen Im Modellbau von Dipl.Ing. Tilman Wallroth

maybe afterwards I am able to give my personal (subjective) opinion .....
