Very exciting!

 

How long now before they are sent out?

I think it will take 2 weeks as soon as possible, I need to wait for the casting factory to produce the parts

Most of the work has been done, followed by packaging and inspection

I haven't finished the remaining masts and sails. I'll start to finish the samples next week

If I have time, I'd like to make an oil painting for Le coureur。I haven't painted for a long time,I hope it can be finished by the end of the year

This is going to be  a fantastic kit. Will it be available in the USA or only for the European market, at first?

Will the price be comparable to the other CAF models kits?

 

Thanks

Yves

Will the diagram for the rigging you illustrated be included in the manual?
If so, you will be the first I have seen doing a great job of directing where lines are supposed to be going.
Beautiful cad-job, unfortunate I like to live a little longer, so buying another kit is not healthy for me.
My Admiral, is wondering about the other ships waiting to be launched.

The many details you have added to the interior of the ship are fantastic. From the photos, it looks like some of the deck planks on the port side are left off so you can see down into the ship and see the barrels and boxes etc. Is any of the planking on the port side left open also so you can see the interior from the port side?  Thanks.

Bob, I would guess that it is up to you whether to leave some planks off on either the port or starboard side of the hull. With all the frames in place the structural integrity of the hull is secure and you could even decide not to plank one side at all. That is how I interpret Tom's intentions.

Thanks, Chris. That's what I was thinking. I couldn't tell from the photos whether or not he had left any openings on the port side to be able to view the interior. I wasn't sure why you would add so many nice details inside the hull if you were then going to cover them up. It seems to be a very nice model.

Hello, I haven't cut my left rib yet,

I'm thinking about whether I need to cut these ribs

Because his ribs are quite different from salamandre's

Salamandre's ribs are only 2 mm apart, so you can't see the structure clearly without cutting the ribs,But the distance between the ribs of Le coureur is big enough to see the internal structure. Of course, if you want to see the inside more clearly, you need to cut the ribs。

The other thing is how different these jagged ribs are, and I want to keep them more

Of course, all of this depends on what kind of effect you need to express
