I have a copy of what appeared on MSW. I do
not think that putting it back page by page, image by image is the fastest
solution. If there would be a section where parts of the ex-forum could be
include, I would be more than happy to put a copy.

For the moment, I tried to make a big picture of previous work, but I should try with
another program.

The next update will be for the actual build: Le Fleuron built completely in cherry.

Hi Gaetan the merged picture although it shows all the pictures it does not show them as larger when I click on any of the smaller images is this how the picture works. it seem to be a simple composite.

Mark,

 

For the 74 guns, there is a copy of the log in Microsoft Word about 540 pages.

For the 74 guns, there is about 1000 pictures, the most significatives ones,  around 130 pictures were extracted for the last Collage.

For the last picture, the background can be whatever color you wish, I have tried many colors, but black is the one!

Here are some blades under the microscope.

 

First 2 are exacto blade and a number 11 blade. A comparison does not explain well why one
is sharper than the other. The only significant difference I saw is that exacto
blade has a second relief angle of sharpening.


 

Other are sharp chisels to the eye but when looking closer we see that it is very easy to
burn some steel while sharpening or why we need not to hit the blade on hard
object.

I assume that the extensions are there only for long pieces of stock, Gaetan? Nice microphotographs, too. Is there anything that you are not expert at?

Hi Druxey, you are right about extensions.

 

 Actually the set up is to take 1 by 3 inch, 8 feet long and cut it in 2 feet lenghts, make 2 adjecent sides perpendicular, and make the remaining 2 opposites sides parallel, obtaining a 2 feet long piece perfectly straight. Many blanks are prepared this way.

 

When I need a specific thickness , I use a blank of 1 inch thick, and cut to the desired thickness plus few millimeters extra.To get the the desired thickness at few millimeters close, the piece is pass at the thickness sander.

 

I used microphotograph to see why a knife did not perform well even after a fresh sharpening. If we look the front of the end of the blade, we should see one line, but in few cases one side was thicker and was not coming at 0. This side was not cutting. After correction, it is a joy to use these tools!

Gluing partitions walls.

To be able to work with the portable close to the desk, the last picture shows a support for it. Already built with angle adjustment for the keyboard, another angle adjustment is added to make sure that the keyboard is perfectly horizontal which was not before because of the weight of the portable.

Hi Gaetan,

 

As usual for your exceptional work, the photos look like real ships. You are an inspiration.

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.
