La Couronne documentation

Recommended Posts

Hi to all, I have finally opened my Corel kit of the La Couronne and in reading the documentation I see the instructions in various languages but the parts list is only in Italian. Does anyone know of a source of the parts list in English?

Thanks in advance

Mike

Worst comes to worst, Historic Ship Models,  Mondfeld  has a fine print page and a half of Italian to English (Spanish, French, German) at the back.  This should cover most all the parts and the book is nice to have.

Hi  Mike,

I am just over halfway through building Corel's La Couronne, and had to learn the Italian terms by simple repetition.  It's most important to translate the names of the types of wood so you use the right piece of wood by dimension and the right color.  The names of the parts are less important since you have drawings that show you where they are by number and what they look like.  Google Translate works pretty well, although the names you get in English will not match up to the names we usually associate with the items in English.  Often the names are descriptive and can provide a clue as to what item they are referring to.  If you have any specific questions, drop me a note.  For my build, lots of changes will be made to the constructions features of the hull and the rigging which are different than the instructons, or add more details to the build.  EJ_L has a wonderful build of this ship already on this forum.  My build log is at: La Couronne

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.
