Hello everyone ! My name is Patrick, 64, retired for 4 years soon and living in Poissy, a small town located 30 km west of Paris. I have been watching your works on this forum for several years now and as some of my compatriots are doing, I would like to show you a project I started four years ago : a French frigate named "La Renommée". I work from a monograph by Jean BOUDRIOT, the scale is 1/48. At this stage, I just finished the hull and I will show you some pictures without too many comments, the pictures speaking for themselves ... and moreover, my "English" is a bit "rus

All of the frames between each station are worked as a single unit. For this hull, I have chosen to build it as a solid wall of framing timbers. I usually frame true POF, with spaces.
Hey Group, I am excited to announce my next project - a fully framed build of the French Frigate La Renommee in classic 1/48 scale.

This will be a 6500 hour plus build as I intend to mast and fully rig her. I have spent several years amassing the amount of tools necessary not to mention building out a workshop to handle a project of this degree. The reason I chose her over Le Gros Ventre and the 74 (I love both of these ships)
