LA VENUS 1782 by giampieroricci - French Frigate - Scale 1:96


Recommended Posts

I started my new project, a little ambitious, on an almost impossible scale: I always admired extremely small models, always convinced that it would have been an impossible job for me. It's a challenge against myself!

Obviously I started from the keel and it is already difficult to be able to keep the straight line.

Looking very, very good. The scale you’re working at sounds like a real challenge.......your ship looks excellent! I may have missed it but what scale is this? Also I saw another model in the background. What ship is that?...Moab

I i am building this model at 1:96 scale, as it is written in the title.

the model you see in the background is H.M.S. Alfred that I am building at the same time, based on drawings by Harold Hahn at 1:72 scale

Here is the topic:

The model is now of extreme fragility

Permanently filling the spaces above the wale added stability.  Consider a keelson;  and bilge riders at the head of futtock 1.   The clamps will certainly secure things.
