SOLEIL ROYAL 1669 by michel saunier

Recommended Posts

Beautifully done, Michel!

 

What is your plan for the seats of ease at the head?  It has always seemed to me that the roundhouses on the Tanneron model really belong in the 18th century, and not the latter 17th C.  Has your research pointed you in any definitive direction?  Would the arrangement of Frolich's L'Ambiteaux be more appropriate, for example?

Hello and thank you for the compliment
Indeed, the stools in a rotunda are not 17th century and rather English.
The reclining seats of the Royal Sun will be double as on the Ambitieux which is of the same time and the same site of Brest. This is part of the ongoing construction stage of the foal grating floor. But I have at the same time to finish the decorations of the smooth and squat (Heads of lion and paws, sea horse on the top of the herpes and, hunk, the naiades against the horse of bow and behind the herpes.
See you soon
Michel

Some work on the rear deck. Two cannons of 4 that remain to be rigged, the officer's rooms, the chicken coops. Finishing of the cages with the fittings of the trap doors and the mooring rings.
In anticipation the sculptures of the bow and the railings of the foreheads of the fellows and dunette.
See you soon
Michel

The way that last shot of the bow is cropped is a great impression of what she would look like afloat on her waterline.  Beautiful work, Michel! I particularly like the horsehead above the “herpes,” and the figurehead is nicely balanced, now, with it’s riding figures.

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.
