Hello Ronald. I don't have any book about the Royal Louis specifically, and believe me I have looked for it. You may be referrieng to a photo in one in my previous posts. Sorry to dissapoint you but that is a notebook I had made with the photo of the kit's photo on the cover to use as a log book.

I wish I knew. :)

Due to several personal matters I had to put on hold building in general.  But I am very excited because this morning I saw the end of those troubling issues and I will re-start my build as soon as this very week. Thanks for you interest Ronald. 

Best regards

ok  I'll be looking forward to watching the finish I was wondering if I can get your permission to copy all of your 

   post and photos of this build or do I need the permission of the administrator because it will help me when I ever start mine after my Victory is finished thank you

I feel very honored that you consider my work as some sort of guide for yours. Of course you can use all my material as you see fit. If anything I'd only ask that if you post that material in other sites, give credit where credit is due. ūüėČ

I'm sorry Ulises 

I have a couple of  questions for you  the replacement boats you got from model expo were they the correct scale for the Royal  Louis 1/90 scale, are they a set of boats and are they still available, for future reference thank you

The boat kits I got from ME were very close to scale, but they were really cumbersome to make. I finished one and was so unhappy with the result that I ended up using the ones in the kit. I took the challenge to make them look like wood. I'll post some photos when starting my build again.

Thank you Pat. Fortunately those issues were of the positive nature: buying a new house, moving, all things involving furnishing a new home, new workshop, finding a place for already built ships, and a long etc. Took me almost a year, but I am on track again. 

Best regards.

FINALLY!!! I finished with the cleaning and fixing of my previously built ships, some of which I had neglected and now I'm paying the consequences. They are now placed in my living room on their respective tables and covers which I had made for that purpose. So my workshop is now  free of pending maintenance work and I can now proceed to continue my Royal Louis build. Here is a photo-mini-tour of my new living room and how it looks with all the ships in their place.

 

First here is my RL ready for action in the workshop.

I have to say I am very happy with everything that has been happening to me in these last year. No doubt someone is watching over me from above. (love you and miss you Mom!!!)

Que tal Ulises:

I'm glad that things are going well for you and that you're going back to model making. Let's see when I can go to Monterrey to see your new house and how you have fixed it.

 

Felicidades!!!

For now I have no trip to Monterrey, but when I go there I talk to you.

Hallo mates.

Well I can say that today, thursday 26 of July 2018 I officially re-started the building of my neglected Royal Louis. No photos yet as there is not much to show , but soon they will come.

What I left in process was placing the gunport covers. About 2/3 of the starboard side were done, so I am finished those pending to do in this side, and will continuie with the port side. It is hard to re-take something that was left incomplete after so many months. Have to use the same thread, paint, materials etc. You loose the inertia.

Once the gunports are done, I can start right off with the rigging... my favorite part of the build. Looking forward to it!!!

 

Cheers all.

Thank you Pat.

Some of you will cringe when reading this. ūüė¨¬†The worst nightmare that a ship modeler can have, just happen to me!

 

Yesterday I was very excited working on my ship, finishing placing all those gunport covers, with their little hinges and the ropes used for lifting/lowering them...

I stand up and turn the other way to grab some tool and hear a loud crash. My heart stopped. I turn around and my ship was not at the table. It was on the floor.ūü§Į

I stood there open mouthed for about half minute, not believing what just happened. I finally was able to take the hull and place it on my table, and silently went to my bedroom. I cried.¬†ūüėĘ

My first reaction was to bag the damn thing and start a new project already. What the heck.ūü§¨

 

Later, when I mustered enough courage, I went back to my workshop and assesed the damage. To be honest, considering the height and the sound of the crash I heard, the damage was actually minimal. A few hull cannons (5) broke. There was a crack in one of the bulwarks and a hand rail was loose. I think the worst part, was the rigging in a couple of deck cannons... worst because they are going to be the hardest to fix.

Yes, I decided I am going to fix it. I think if this had happened with masts and rigging in place, the damage would had been disastrous!

 

Trying to take a positive thing out of a disaster, considering the height of the table and the hardeness of the floor, this tells me that my ship is actually very well built. 

 

So... here's my today story. I started fixing already. Will keep you posted.

 

Cheers.

Hi Ulises. Think we all feel your pain... You've definitely done the right think by taking time out before deciding. And I also think you're doing the right thing by fixing the damage. Quicker than starting from scratch plus more satisfying. 

 

Youll be laughing about this in years to come...ūüėÄ

Well that's my two pennies worth! Good luck with the repairs.

That sounds like a nightmare Ulises! I’m glad the damage isn’t catastrophic and you’ve decided to fix it. Looking forward to seeing pictures...

It stinks going back over old work. But like fnick said it‚Äôll be a good laugh when she‚Äôs finished ūüėĀ

I am so sorry to hear about the fall.  I am happy to hear that you are going to keep going.

 

 I lost the Heller La Reale de la France a couple of years ago.  It fell in storage smashing the stern decorations and breaking the masts (which were plastic anyways).  I ended up declaring it a total loss.  It ended up in a dumpster.  Bad day.
