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.

Love it! I suspect it will be much harder to do precision work at this scale but I'm sure you are up to it.

Hi Giampiero

This is one of my favorite frigates , I'll follow this build with great interest.

First pictures obviously show this is far beyond my skills, I have no trouble in admitting.

Well, I can see how much wood you'll save at that scale - assuming you don't have to re-make too many pieces! Looks like an excellent result so far, Giampiero.

Congratulations, it is a very interesting project. At that scale there are very difficult challenges, but for your previous work the result is guaranteed

Beautiful work, you will have no trouble with this scale, your work is very precise.  My ships are all 1/96 scale, a bigger scale and I would need a much bigger house.  I will follow your excellent build with pleasure-Hal

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.

Sweet build, you have been a busy boy! The type of wood you are using? looks like Pear wood. You might want to do some inside planking if you are going to keep the framing somewhat open.

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.
