I was thinking the same thing, the stairs would be much easier to negotiate if they were linear.

Perhaps it's to make them feel less steep?  They are steep anyways but I imagine if the went straight down they would be all the more.

Yes, if they went straight down but I was thinking linear in line with the existing top and bottom fixing points like a normal staircase.

 

Thanks mtaylor, I was thinking that must be the reason, the French do like their style.

Beautiful! It all looks obvious and straightforward when you view the headwork of a completed model. Your photos show just how exceptionally complex those pieces in the head really are. Great craftsmanship.

Karl,

 

your model is really a reference for me and perhaps for other model builders. The accuracy in every detail of your model is absolut extraordinary. I like sitting in front of my monitor and watch the deatils.

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.
