Le Gros Ventre by marsalv - 1:48 - POF

I have the Ancre monograph and was thinking of building this ship sometime down the road.  Your work is so perfect though, I don’t think I’ll be able to.  You have set the bar to an unreachable level for us mere modeling mortals.

Interesting that this French orlop deck has round-up to the beams. British practice had flat ones. Perhaps more water leaked down in a French ship! Beautifully realized.

Stunning work. I followed your Royal Caroline build with great interest, but have only just discovered this one. You have moved to an even higher level with Le Gros Ventre. I also find it very encouraging that you achieve so much with Proxxon tools. I bought their micro-mill when I saw you using it on the Caroline - you should be on commission!

 

One question. I've just read through your log from the beginning and in the first post you said the ship had no orlop deck, but now you are building the orlop.  Is the apparent contradiction because the orlop is removable, and so not recorded as a deck?

Hi Derek, thanks for reply. Information at the beginning of the log I meant that there is no fixed orlop deck. At first I thought I wouldn't install this removable orlop deck at all, but later I changed my decision.

I added the barrels to the water hold and covered the whole with the remaining deck beams.

Your work is just simply stunning and very inspiring too.

 

Can I ask about the vice you use on your mill?  I see that it tilts which is a very useful thing to have.  Did you purchase it as a tilting vice or have you modified an existing vice.  The reason I ask is because I could do with one just like it.

Rutland do a version of it.

 

Here is the link for you.

 

Great to help out a fellow Yam Yam

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.
