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 and not the original ship. Ofcourse, though already during the first building of the model, I tried to take distances from the replica and build the original ship.... my historical knowledges did not allowed me to do so. Now I am more confident. Now I am aware, with more accuracy, of the distance, between the original ship and the replica. Its not only the coppering or the flag, or some detail on the deck.... its more to it. Among others, -for example- the modern health and safety regulations that the replica designer had to be in line with, have produced a lot of deviations, by adding to the original design or by leaving behind, elements and materials that were originally part of the ship's design. So here I am to make an effort correcting my build. Hopefully I will succeed to that.... but I also have in mind to avoid all the bad craftmanship and build errors of my first build, hopping that the gained experience and my better skills of today will able me to build a decisive improved model.
