  1. Before I start my build log some information about the real La Créole and the data from which my model will build. The La Créole was a 24-gun corvette of the French Navy. The corvette carried 4 x 18 pdr guns and 20 x 30 pdr carronades. Her plans were drawn by P. M. Leroux in 1827. She was launched in Cherbourg in May 1829. The ship took part in the French invasion of Mexico in 1838, and most notably in the Bombardment of San Juan de Ulloa before French troops disembarked and captured the city of Veracruz. There is a fine shipyard model on display at the Musée nationa
  2. My new passion. The wood that i use are oak, moraine oak, ebony, padоk. 1: 36
  3. Why scratch? I always had a high requirements for a wood quality and fitting quality. Unfortunately, even expensive kits were never close to what I want. After getting a first pack of boxwood, I would never go back to any inferior wood (read - kit wood). And I am not ready to tolerate a bad quality in the kit. Hence, only scratch. Not that scary though, I do most of the parts from scratch anyway. It's a pity that kit producers do not offer a wood upgrade. For a serious build, cost is spreading over a number of years, so is it really so important? Speed of the build is not import
  4. Some time ago, intrigued by the new monograph by Delacroix I ordered a copy of this Corvette I started to study a little the plans and I want to try to build it. I decided, before setting up his yard, to work to one of the most difficult to escape unscathed (at least for me) in carpentry construction: the oarlocks hawse. The basic idea is to build the hull in pear and the topsides above the waterline, ebony for the stem and stern. The first step was to build the first rib: To get the right angle for di
  5. Hello friends of the smaller ships out of the line of sight of the three-decker-enthusiastic public! An additive foreword: Due to my working situation I am parttime in the NL in a small hotel without any possibilities to model anything. And the problem is for me being so tired that I'm not able to concenreate to do anything more than monkey work or pure reading. But in the other hand there is nothing to do elsewhere in town - so I'm forced to stay in my hotelroom filling my time. (I do not use the TV due to semireligious matters.) By reading Ian McLaughlan's fant
  6. Good evening to everyone, as I promised I will begin a new ship used in the Second World War to escort the overseas convoy sin from the united kingdom of Murmansk in Russia, this ship is called Aggasiz a flower corvette. I'm inspired by the plans in the anatomy of ship the book, a book I bought from the Amazon and which is renowned for the accuracy of the plans presented. But the main challenge is to build this structural model, with everything inside and outside the ship, this type of construction is according to the Naviga rules in the C4D class.It will be a long construction with a lot
  7. Hello. I'm building L'Amarante, a french corvette, at 1/40 scale, a bit smaller than the original on the monograph (1/36) by Gérard Delacroix. I'm using pear wood and ebony, by now. I've done the keel and the stern frame (except the fashion pieces and its upper parts). This model has got 52 frames. I've started from stern (52) to stern (1). Best regards.
  8. Good evening! I present to you the process of construction corvette L'Aurore, built in 1766. Model is built according to the drawings ANCRE, scale construction - 1/39, materials - pear tree, apple tree, brass, coating - wax mastic and bituminous varnish. Model given the effects of aging. All the best, Vadim
