LE BONHOMME RICHARD by Jeronimo

Recommended Posts

Wonderful work, as always, Karl. Are you cutting the mortises for the  carlings with the beams already glued in place or prior to fixing the beams?

Jeronimo,

I was trying to find the words to describe this magnificent build, but words fail me.

I'm speechless !!

Even though I will probably never venture to the dark-side of modelling (scratch-building), I'll be following along from now on just for the stunning eye-candy.

You are a master-modeller !!

Keep it coming.

Hello Karl.

Each time you post photos I am totally amazed on the realism of your build.

Everything and detail is there.

WOW is the only way to discribe this build.

 

Regards Jade.

Hello friends.

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

 

Greg (dvm 27)

Sorry, but I do not understand the question,

Google Translator is not so good.

Can someone translate the question from Greg in the

German language?

Regards Karl

Hast du die Scheerstockspuren / Auflager für die Scheerstöcke und Rippen vor dem Einbau in die Deckbalken geschnitten oder erst nach dem Einbau?

 

Gruß, Daniel

It's easy to gesticulate than to line up many praises that you deserve completely, in front of a work such yours...

It's ordinary, familiar maybe boring for you to read at every turn these praises about your mastery that you deserve completely but I have to repeat at every update...  m0161.gif

Absolutely beautiful stunning details and definitely a pleasure to view.

I agree with Ferit... it may be the same old compliments but they are genuine.... perhaps if we all could wordsmith as well as you craft your ship we could come up with new ways to give praise :P

Love those barrels with individual staves even though they're mostly hidden by the lattice work and doors. Such attention to detail makes this a truly unique model.

Karl some other thread is asking a question about skill levels your work demonstrates that there are Masters amongst us. You show us wonderful workmanship, that is amazing.

? the dead space between the bulkheads abd the ships hull, would this have been used for any thing, or a requirement to be kept clear for observing of water ingress, i ask because a there is a lot of space not being used, and on a modern ship, although metal in construction would be used.

All I can say is "Awe Inspireing", I keep expecting to see workers walking around the build, although I'm not sure a full scale build would be as precise.

 

Are you retired? You make amazing headway on your project, considering the speed and quality of work.

Magnifique!

Very interesting to see the difference in design of the anchors towards the english contemporaries. The palms are bolted on?

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.
