Le Gros Ventre by marsalv - 1:48 - POF

Beautiful work Marsalv!  Thank you for sharing your build progress and techniques!  I bought the monograph off eBay years ago when it was listed for a great deal, and have always wanted to build it once I gained more skill and experience.  It's a relatively plain ship compared to some of the other Ancre subjects when it comes to ornamentation, but I think it's a beauty.

I bought a "good helper" for producing of the frames. I have lost more than three months because I have found an untrustworthy supplier and I have had to look for another one but I am still satisfied with the result. The frames are ready for the beveling.

Looks like you have little to no fairing to do amidships. I assume that's not an 8-axis machine. Imagine havinga mill that could also cut the changing bevels of the frames!

To Dirk - I bought this machine from one Czech company - https://cnc.inshop.cz/cnc-frezky-a-routery/mala-modelarska-cnc-frezka-pro-gravirovani-a-ryti. This company is co-owned with one man from German and milling maschines are made in China under inspection people from German. So I hope the quality of production will also be under tight control. Milling speed is in my case cca 15-20 mm/s, time required for one frame production is aprox. 7 minutes (milling maschine makes 10 passes). 

Beveling was done in two phases, rough sanding was made with help of Proxxon maschines, fine sanding was made manually with sanding paper glued on the wooden sticks. Beveled frames are temporarily situated on the keel.
