  1. Hello to you, modelmaker friends, the construction of the Belle-Poule continues quietly. Today work is carried out on the hardware of the battery bridge. This subject is not very followed, I post some photos which brings us quickly to the current state of the site. For a more detailed follow-up it is possible for who wishes, to follow this construction on the following forum: https://5500.forumactif.org/t3216-la-belle-poule-de-1765-au-1-48-par-guydal Bonjour à vous amis modélistes, la construction de la Belle-Poule se poursuit tranquillement. Aujourd'hui le travail s'effectue sur l'accastillage du pont de batterie. Ce sujet n'étant pas très suivi, je poste quelques photos qui nous amène rapidement à l'état actuel du chantier. Pour un suivi plus détaillé il est possible pour qui le désire, de suivre cette construction sur le forum suivant: https://5500.forumactif.org/t3216-la-belle-poule-de-1765-au-1-48-par-guydal 2019 (45).RW2
  2. Hello to you, continuation of the Belle Poule site. Preparation of the structure and positioning of the masts. Bonjour à vous, suite du chantier Belle Poule. Préparation de la structure et positionnement des mâts.
  3. 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, but only the lifting couples, the hull is built conventionally. The realization of the structure of the model is completely personal. But everyone has their own method and this one does not pretend to be a reference. The interest of presenting this work remains the sharing of ideas but also the constructive criticism which often avoids gross errors. Communication tools today provide us with facilities that we could not have suspected a few years ago, so let's take advantage of them. My first job for the Belle Poule was to determine on the shape plan, 2 reference points, common to each couple, which will then be used after drilling and thanks to centering pins, to achieve a perfect symmetry by working by turning over the mini milling machine. To make the shapes of the bow and the stern as precise as possible, I had to plan for filling beds, referring to the water lines on the plan. This is the beginning of this adventure which I will post the following on another message. Thanks for reading, Jacques. Bonjour à vous amis modéliste, Je viens par ce sujet partager ici l’aventure construction du modèle de la frégate française la Belle-Poule de 1765, dont le début de chantier date déjà de l’année 2018. Ce navire présente un intérêt indéniable pour ces formes harmonieuses mais aussi pour son parcours historique. Les plans utilisés sont issus de la monographie de Jean Boudriot, grand spécialiste de la marine ancienne, auteur de nombreux ouvrages fabuleux sur ce sujet, édités chez « ANCRE ». https://ancre.fr/fr/monographies/17-la-belle-poule-fregate-1765.html Cette monographie ne donnant pas l’intégralité de la charpente, mais seulement les couples de levée, la coque est construite classiquement. La réalisation de la structure du modèle est tout à fait personnelle. Mais à chacun sa méthode et celle-ci n’a pas la prétention d’^tre une référence. L’intérêt de présenter ce travail reste le partage d’idées mais aussi la critique constructive qui évite souvent des erreurs grossières. Les outils de communication aujourd’hui, nous apportent des facilités que nous n’aurions pu soupçonner voilà quelques années en arrière alors : profitons-en. Mon premier travail pour la Belle Poule a été de déterminer sur le plan de forme, 2 points de référence, communs à chaque couple, qui serviront ensuite après perçage et grâce à des piges de centrage, à réaliser une symétrie parfaite en travaillant par retournement sur la mini fraiseuse. Pour réaliser les formes de l’étrave et de la poupe de façon la plus précise possible, j’ai dû prévoir des massifs de remplissage en me référant aux lignes d’eau du plan. C’est le début de cette aventure dont je posterai la suite sur un autre message.
  4. 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. I note the link to the very interesting dictionary which deals with marine terms. This forum brings to my passion for model making more desire to communicate. Bonjour à vous, je vous remercie de l'accueil que vous me faites sur ce forum. Je découvre peu à peu un monde de passionnés à l'horizon plus large que je ne me l'imaginais. je note le lien vers le dictionnaire très intéressant qui traite des termes de marine. Ce forum apporte à ma passion pour le modélisme plus d'envie de communiquer.
  5. 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 learn the functioning and the subtleties of this forum. Good day to you, Jacques Bonjour, je suis surpris mais aussi très content de savoir que mon "post" sur le forum français concernant la Belle-Poule aurait pu être utile. Comme quoi, la passion du modélisme n'a pas de frontières. Faites un "buildog"? que je traduis par: surveillance du site et que le traducteur Google parle de: "journal". Pourquoi pas, bien sûr, si quelques-uns peuvent en tirer des leçons. Je ne connais pas encore très bien les règles de ce forum en grande partie à cause de la langue. Je n'ai pas encore compris comment mettre des photos dessus. Merci de l'intérêt que vous portez à mon travail, j'étudierai cette possibilité de "Buildog?" Mais avant cela, je dois apprendre le fonctionnement et les subtilités de ce forum. Bonjour à toi Jacques
  6. Hello, Mr. Taylor, I am very happy to discover this post on the construction of the Belle-Poule. I am myself on this same subject and it is very interesting for me to discover other methods and tips for the construction of this beautiful frigate. I will now follow the progress of this subject with the greatest interest, thank you for this sharing.J.Guydal.
  7. Hello to you, model-making friends from across the Atlantic. I am French, Breton and visit this very interesting forum from time to time. 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 method with new ideas. For those who would like to follow my work, it is possible at this address: https://5500.forumactif.org/t3216-la-belle-poule-de-1765-au-1-48-par-guydal This frigate is very famous for the combat of June 18, 1778 against the English frigate Arethus, and which was the beginnings of the American war of independence. I am not really sure to understand everything about the functioning of this forum, to know how to post in the right place and I hope not to make any mistake. Thank you for your understanding. We live in an era where the internet provides us with the ease of communication that we could not have imagined 20 years ago. Thank you for reading. J. Guydal.
