  4. Hello to you model maker friends, I come by this subject to share here the adventure of building the model of the French frigate Belle-Poule of 1765, whose start of construction already dates from 2018. This ship is of undeniable interest for these harmonious forms but also for its historic journey. The plans used come from the monograph of Jean Boudriot, a great French specialist in the old navy, author of many fabulous works on this subject, published by "ANCRE". https://ancre.fr/fr/monographies/17-la-belle-poule-fregate-1765.html This monograph does not give the entire frame
  5. Hello to you, thank you for the welcome you give me on this forum. I gradually discover a world of enthusiasts with a broader horizon than I imagined.

  6. Hello, I am surprised but also very happy to know that my "post" on the French forum concerning the Belle-Poule could have been useful. Like what, the passion for model making has no borders. Do a "buildog?" that I translate by: site monitoring and that the Google translator speaks of: "newspaper". Why not, of course if a few can learn from it. I do not yet know very well the rules of this forum largely because of the language. I still haven't figured out how to put photos on it. Thank you for your interest in my work, I will study this possibility of "Buildog? »But before that, I must lea

A difficulty all the same, remains the language barrier, my English being very approximate. Fortunately, I am using a translator here to avoid gross errors. Lovers of old navy from the golden age: 1750-1850, this forum brings more to this passion. My particular attention at the moment leads me to follow the construction of the frigate Belle-Poule by Mr. Taylor. And for good reason, I too have this work in progress and I take pleasure in seeing another meth
