I appreciate your nice comments and thank you very much for your nice words.

Today I will explain the process for preparing grids for the skylights.

Therefore please note the following pictures.

Hello Johann,

 

Your model is just astonishing. Apparently, one of my favorite ships is the Creole, so I'm definitely going to follow the log.

 

Cheers,

Gyula

Hello Dear Friends,

thank you very much for your comments, I appreciate them a lot.

The bow section of the French corvette was completed.

Here you can see the bow, with the now mounted equipment parts.

You can see also the figurehead in some pics.

The small seawater pump on the bow was, among other things for the hygiene of the crew on board.

Hello Dear Friends,
 
the main armament of the la creole consisted of 20 30-pounder carronades.
First I made ​​a prototype, gonna learn how to make all the parts I need.
The production of the prototype can be seen in the following images.
I hope that you enjoy it.
Soon I will show you more pictures of the finished Carronade.

Johann,

 

Absolutely amazing and beautifully done.  Are you making the nuts and bolts?  They look to be threaded.

Hello,

thanks to all for your recognition of my performance.

 

@mtaylor

Hello Mark,
the nuts and bolts are partially purchased.
But the bolts with square nuts are self-made​​.

Hello,

here I show the continuation of the production of Caronades.
The supports for the gun barrels are made ​​of brass precision casting.
I have the Carronade only temporarily installed to see whether the parts fit.
Later, the brass parts are still blackened.
