I am a big fan of the french vessels, as everybody knows......Yes. I have 5 in mind......
Section of Blandford
I can not add something else to your comment. AgreeWell I have fallen in love with the Cross Section type of models!
Can be built in larger scale, with easier work, you still have planking to do, but mostly straight with no twists or bends.
And the details you can add to show what hides in the belly of a ship are endless. You can make stub mast so no rigging to mess with, or do a full must if you build wide enough for all the deadeyes to support the mast.
There are several nice cross sections kits, and the Blandford Build, which I am in early phases of now, it is teaching me new skills all the time. The Blandford build is basic, but you can add details if you wish very easy.
Le Cerf plan set is coming with no full frame and close hullI am a big fan of the french vessels, as everybody knows......
so my favourites would be the Le Cerf and the Le Requin.
I think, that the Le Cerf would be a very interesting next step with her clinker-planked hull
Last week I made a planset review of this monograph
