  1. Thanks Karl Support for the keel on the construction site. 14mm thickness. Then printed on paper A3-A4 for cutting. Measurements on the CAS in 1/48 scale:
  2. Thank you so much. In my profile there are some links you tube. Go see them. My interest in rhino is connected. The 3d was made in artcam by a dear friend.
  3. Yes of course. The development of three-dimensional design to the CAS (Rhino) helps me to understand how to proceed then with the wood.
  4. Hi everyone, these are my observations for the "couple M." For the realization I need wood in three thicknesses. In 1:24 scale: 8mm, 6mm, 4mm
  5. Hi Karl, Thank you very much. I'm almost finished with the thickness of the boards of pear 14mm and 8mm. From next week I will be able to realize the keel. Have a good weekend Luca
  6. Blue: horizontal reference line. Red: Line arched keel That 's the first feature of the model. See you soon. Luca
  7. Work in progress of a russian modeller Le Francois scale 1:32 Source: Web
  8. Thanks WB and Druxey the model will have a length of about 137 cm (length between perpendiculars). Many pieces for this model Druxey Luca
  9. Hi everyone, this is the work in progress of the ‘LE FRANCOIS’, a small 5th class vessel in Colbert’s navy, Ancre edition, Admiralty style. From the site Ancre: In 1680 Colbert gave orders to the administrators in Brest, Rochefort and Toulon to set up a school to teach construction theory to the Navy guards (cadets). At Toulon, François Coulomb was chosen to initiate the future officers, and the lessons he gave from 1680 onwards encouraged him to edit a manuscript, dated 1683. In answer to our concern to continue the study of XVIIth century French naval architecture, (see the Vaisseau pont by M. de Tourville and the monograph of La Belle) Jean Boudriot had the idea of translating the 1683 manuscript through drawings. He therefore suggested to Jean-Claude Lemineur, the author of the work Les vaisseaux du Roi-Soleil, that he should undertake this very significant work. Much effort would be necessary to complete it. In the 1/48th scale monograph we are presenting, Jean-Claude Lemineur, after detailed analysis of the manuscript and additional sources, explains the use of drawings, then comments on the 38 plates necessary to define the ship and describe the rigging. The work ends with useful information about the decoration and painting of the vessel. Analysis of the photographs of three models of the ‘François’ during construction completes this information. Model-makers thus have complete and particularly detailed documentation on ‘LE FRANCOIS’, a small 5th class vessel in Colbert’s navy. This my work in progress, 1:24 scale.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
