Excellent work. I enjoy all the detail you have done. Are you going to build this in wood later? Keep the pictures coming.

Thanks WackoWolf. No plan for building her in wood yet, but it is definitely possible!

I am beginning a project to prepare plans for a Virginie class Sane frigate. Your build log is an inspiration. Cannot begin to say how impressed I am. I will be using TurboCAD v18 and Solidworks for my own project, Thank you for setting the bar so high. As the French would say totalement incroyable.

Thank you everyone for the kind words!

 

Bava, at the beginning I came across this model of the Pandora (It seems that it was built by Woodeater and/or his friends. By the way, does anyone know whether Woodeater has come back to MSW 2.0? It is always a pleasure to see his and his friends’ builds.):

http://www.shipmodel...ndora/index.htm

http://forum.modelsw.../topic8068.html

I was amazed by the details of this model and decided to build a similar one in 3D, thus this project.

 

WackoWolf, I worked on this project intermittently and it took me about two years to get to this point. You can do it a lot faster if you draw something everyday.

 

John, I am looking forward to see your project!

 

Jingyang

I agree, if you work on it everyday you can do it faster. I have been working a design for about 2 years plus and still not done yet LOL.

It's wonderful that we're having so many great CAD builds on this site. The meticulous precision and attention to detail throughout are just as awe-inspiring as some of the physical builds.

 

Brilliant work, Jingyang, and thanks so much for taking the time to show us the build.

Jingyang, you have a marvelous tool to work with and you use it as a master.  It would be a charm to build HMS Pandora with this set of drawings. The problem with 2D drawings is that it is sometimes difficult to visualize a piece in 3D but with the extractions that you can do with the drawings  it makes everything easy to understand.

 

I do not know if you are still working on this model, but would it be possible to show us  a drawing  just like if somebody would be inside the ship?

 

Thank you

Gaetan

Thank you, Mark, Tony, and Gaetan.

 

Gaetan, it is indeed much easier to visualize the parts in 3D and it helps to resolve some contradictions between different 2D drawings. I am still working on the model, but slowly. I will try to render a picture showing as if someone is inside soon.


Best regards,

Jingyang

Hi Jingyang,

 

thank you very much.

I like the colors

I like the angle of view

It is surprising how close from reality thie effect can be.

There is a lot of work behind your work.

You have a fantistic tool to evaluate dimensions of parts in relation one to the other.

Congratulations for your work!

 

Gaetan
