La Renommée by JOUFF - 1/48 - French Frigate - by Patrick JOUFFRIN


Recommended Posts

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 "rusty".

I will go in stages, to condense 4 years of work in a few days of publication.


 

So let's go ...

Did you have to prepare the Ebony in any way before laminating it or did it hold well with without, other than a roughing with sandpaper?

Noel, I simply bought 1mm thick boards that worked as shown in the photos. You have to be quick to stick the first two blades and present them on the shell to get the rounding by keeping it in place for a few seconds. Next sticks the third on the two preceding ones, presents again,  maintains. Same for the fourth. The final shape is then obtained in 4 mm which is sufficient to sand and to adapt. I used the universal adhesive. The disadvantage of this method is that by sanding too much the lower blade is uncovered : it is necessary to go slowly. (The other method is to cut into the mass, which avoids this risk). I am glad to have tested and obtained this result.
