  1. Hello all. Couldn't wait and I'm posting these photos with the sole purpose of starting my Royal Louis build log. I'm under the impression this will be a real challenge. Box and contents shown. I know before hand I won't be using some of the stuff in this kit. Like those metal boats: Plan to purchase wooden kits for those parts. Blocks: I'm planning to purchase blocks from an external source. Rigging thread: I will make my own. Too many metal parts. Still don't know which I will use or won't. Will decide in due time. Actual build photos will come later. All you see in the photos is all the room I have to build. That is a blanket closet. I dream of a really big and spacious shop.
  2. The University of Bologna owns many museums in the town. All have a specific didactic purpouse. One of them, which I think could be of interest is the "Museo di Palazzo Poggi". The website: http://www.museopalazzopoggi.unibo.it/index.do Among its various collections, there is a section dedicated to the sailing ship models owned by the university. There are various galleons, frigates, galleys. Why are so interesting? well mainly: -the models are generally made in the same period of the ship represented, and since the models age varies from XVII to XVIII century, can be a valuable source of contemporary informations; -the models are HUGE, their size varies from 2,10 to 2,50 metres of lenght, so many details can be visible; -the models are fully rigged (thanks to the size) the above one is in my opinion the most important factor, since it is a precious source of informations about rigging of the specific period of the model; -the models were high level gifts, generally from an Ambassador of the king of France to nobles or the Pope. So their quality was very high. Some of the models present: -Le Royal Louis (model built in 1732, and represent the ship after the restoration of 1704) -Le Vainqueur (1691, model built in 1731) -Le Bien Aimè (1757, model built in 1771) -A galley of the Military Order of Saint Stephen -S. Antonio da Padova (1715, model built in 1754) Since the models are only just more than a dozen (the ones open to public sight), it worth surely a visit, but only if you already have programmed a visit to Bologna. Well, I attached a couple of other photos of charts and maps, since the ships are surrounded of ancient papers.
