Current build, this boat was used by the admiral and used adorned and provided with an awning on the stern leg. This is a model designed by Isidro Rivera, who is currently finishing the design of a 64-gun Spanish ship. This would be the boat.

Many thanks for showing the jig and the preparation of it - very good idea with the false frames at the location of the final ones!
And also the nice add on with the intarsien star at the floor.

Thanks Norway and Jim, now I am with the monograph of La Belle, by Ancre, but I think this time I've put on a challenge too big, but I'll try.

Best Regards!
Well done! Thumbs-Up
Your model is looking very good - congratulations for the completion of this model.

I am pretty sure, that you will be able to make the La Belle, based on the Jean Boudriot drawings !!!
Do you know already the scale in which you want to built her?

For everybody interested here the link to the monographie Angel mentioned:

Thank you, in fact I have been working at La Belle since November, but it is progressing slowly. It's a long-term project, no doubt. An image ;)
