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


Recommended Posts

It must be very satisfying to achieve this after you set yourself this task. Seeing it makes me feel what I imagine to be your pleasure in this work. Thanks for sharing.

 

It would be nice if you could add details about your work methods, techniques and how you overcome problems you have come across.

Working on this scale is really difficult; It is necessary to be very precise because a small error of a few tenths of a millimeter is enough and the measurements no longer return ....
In the work you have to caress the wood, obviously only with manual tools, perfectly sharp chisels, fine sandpaper, precision tweezers, double magnifying glass (now I don't see it more closely).
The gluing must also be very delicate and the excess glue must be removed immediately. For the hold compartments the thickness of the boards is 0.4 mm, and the glue must take hold on this minimum thickness .....
But this scale is very exciting for me!

I went ahead with the work a bit.
I completed the guns bridge. It is not very precise, I had to adapt some solutions with the drawings of the structure, some measures did not match, and above all there is a serious error in the fixing of the double pulley for the maneuver of the rudder which is not fixed to a beam, but I could not move it so as not to compromise the perpendicularity with the steering wheel.
