  1. Hi all, About a month ago I received the construction kit for my second ship by post. I finished my first ship, the President Scale 1:60 Sergal kit, for about two months now and couldn't wait to start a new ship. After some searching I finally chose the frigate "L 'Hermione La Fayette". Although I would normally not choose to fully paint the hull, in this case I think it has something. Due to my enthusiasm while building, I forget to open a ship build log, but, better late than never! What's in the box! Unfortunately no 1: 1 drawing for the exact measurements
  2. Was on the fence about making another build log since my last one was 5 years in the making....anyways here it goes....
  3. Hello all, This kit was made two years ago. First, the image I love French freegate ships such as La Flore and La Renome beautifully. This kit is modified according to my taste. I think there are some mistakes. I will also write a record of the production.
  4. Hello all, Since my Victory is on hold, I decided to start something smaller and easier to fit in my busy schedule and my skill level better. I don't have much time to work on this model, (between 0 - 1 hour a day if I am lucky), so I thought the Hermione would be much better choice. First off, here is how the kit arrived Its funny how it has a big red sticker on it, and it was crushed! UH OH! As you can see, I was a little hesitant to open it. I closed my eyes and opened the box and luckily no pieces were damaged! That w
  5. I wanted to contribute my build log for the Astesania Latina L'Hermione. Unfortunately I didn't start taking pictures of my progress until the hull planking had been completed and much of the gun deck work was well underway. This is my first attempt at wooden model ship building. I came to this hobby with some plastic kit modeling experience (mostly aircraft and armored vehicles) and some cabinet making and wood working skills. I chose the L'Hermione kit because it seemed to provide a wide variety of challenges that come with an warship of that era and because the price would keep t
  6. Rebuilding the same model again it may sound -at least- boring or surely not exciting. But for me this time its not the case The first time I started Hermione was in 2017. I finished her in late 2018. It took me about 18 months and 600 hrs. So why do it again? In all this time, studying before, during and after building the model and ofcourse my visit to the replica Hermione in Rochefort in 2017, gave to me a whole different perspective of the project. Although A/L made and offers a good kit, still the kit of A/L represents the replica of L' Hermione an
  7. My Attempt at AL's Hermione La Fayette. have found it an interesting build and have now just started the sails and rigging so not far to go now (I Hope)

  9. I started this build July 9, 2018 and finished it July 22, 2019. I didn't start a build log because I wasn't sure I would finish it. It is sure frustrating when someone starts a log and just walks away without finishing. This my second build I finished if you count my 18th Century LongBoat 1/48 scale. I did take some photos along the way but wasn't as religious about it. For every ones amusement, here we go.
  10. This is my 1st build log on MSW and 3rd build to date. The kit was a gift from my wife who apparently found a print-out lying around in a strategically visible place. Intent going in was to follow the detail instructions provided on DVD, be as clean as my noob skills allow, but be creative with how the ship is finished. Not attempting to produce a faithful reproduction of the actual Hermoine. Experimented with a dark brown shoe cream on the gun deck. No big issues during planking, pics are after initial sanding. This was my 1st build without a 2nd finish layer of planks so made mo
  11. Just a few days ago I received the Hermione kit and an extra kit of its crew from AL. I boght it from the L Hermione Lafayette Museum in Rochefort France. It was the only supplier offering together both ship and crew kit. And more to that it offered the chepeast price including shipping. The best thing was that it arrived from France to Cyprus in only 4 days! Incredible! Here is my invoice.
  12. The Hermione was built expressly for La Fayette to help with the American Revolution, and she departed France on March 21, 1780. A reconstruction of this ship has recently been completed and will set sail from France to the United States on April 18, 2015. I will be making some modifications to the kit as I go along. Since there are nice windows for the captain's cabin, I will cut openigs in the stern to look in. The solid brass side windows will have to be replaced to let in light. I hope I can pull this off. This is my second ship build, although I haven't completed the first, the Carmen, b
  13. The Beginning Hello Everybody, My name is Nick. I'm new on this forum, besides I have already gone through it a few times, and thought i may post my own topic about my build log of the Hermione la Fayette from Artesania Latina. I haven't seen a built log before of this ship, so I'm the first i think. But some things about myself: I'm 15 years (almost 16) and do this hobby since a year. I'm coming from the Netherlands, so that may be the reason that my English is not always perfect I love Sailing, and do this a lot (every saturday). I'm doing this almost 5 years. I have also a few certi
  14. Just started my first square rigger kit. Very excited about the information on this site. Thanks ahead for all the advice. Here is the frame. Painted white for light and added a stained lower deck. More to post tomorrow after I get working on the captains quarters,
  15. first, did French frigates such as Hermione have copper plating? I am building her, and plan to leave the hull natural, using walnut veneer planking. Should I copper plate below the waterline or leave it natural? In your opinion, what would look the best?
