Thanks everyone! Allan, I forgot about looking to see what Ancre had. May have to take a look and see if anything might help.
I have always thought this would be a great display option, having a cross section of the completed model but I am also looking at this as a starting point to working on a fully framed ship which is why I want to make sure my framing is done accurately or as close as I can get it to the practices of the era. I know I will end up making educated guesses based on the books I have on 17th century ships, plans and plates I have gathered and a very educational thesis paper I found by Kroom Nickolaev Batchvarov at Texas A&M University titled The Framing of Seventeenth-Century Men-Of-War In England and Other Northern European Countries. In it he not only does an excellent job of defining, explaining and comparing the various methods of framing but he also includes many great drawings so an easier visualization can be had.
I love this era of sailing both for the majestic ships that came out of it and also because of the fact that it is the lees well know and studied era. Learning has always intrigued me and with this century, you have to constantly keep researching and studying as there is not as much readily available information. Even on the more well known ships of the time and even Vasa, which actually exists, we are still learning something new all the time. To me, this is half the fun of modeling.
I will keep looking and searching to see what I can find. I plan on attempting the first cross section after I finish La Couronne and it will be her that it will be of. That will probably be this summer or later as I still have a lot of rigging to go so I have plenty of time for further searching and design.
