Apart from the two oldest monographs, Jean Boudriot has drawn all the other monographs alone. There are 18 in all.
I fear that Joseph's approach will not succeed because he relies on drawings whose scale is not rigorous, the dimensions of the pieces are not related to the tables of scantlings, the design is questionable in many ways, etc.
Building a 3D model of a ship of this era is extremely complicated and requires much knowledge about French shipbuilding of the eighteenth century.
I, for my part, drew eleven complete monographs in CAD in 2D with parts in 3D. It takes between three and five years to complete the project in a credible way to avoid criticism and remarks. The monograph of the galley "La Fleur de Lis" required thirteen years of research and drawing, not continuously but certainly by working very often.
It often happens that people come to me to create they own monograph, so far, and since 25 years, none has come to lead because of the complexity of this work and the huge amount of historical information needed to create a set of credible plans.
I wish Joseph courage and tenacity to reach the end of his project, it is a long and hard task.
Hello Model Friends.
I have no idea about CAD program and drawings or how to do that.
My opinion is that you can build very good and beautiful models
alone with the plan drawings by J.Boudriot or G.Delacroix.
