Recommended Posts

This project represents the exposition consisting of three models of a bronze 24-pound gun of Le Fleuron 1729, M 1:24.  Idea of the project - to show model options in development - from gun model to battle station: 

 

-  The gun located on a fragment of the deck (No. 1); 

 

 

- The gun located on a fragment of the deck with a board and some artillery accessories (No. 2);

 

 

- Battle station including a gun with roofing felts and accessories to firing, fragments of two decks, a board fragment with gun port and a cover (No. 3).

 

 

In an exposition I used c little changes two constructed before the 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and also I constructed new model of the gun (No. 1) located on a fragment of the deck. 

 

 

Each of models is established on own support, in an exposition of model are united by the general stand. 

 

 

 

 

-I added the electrified lamp.

 

 

The lamp is made according to obtained at French on the Arsenal drawings (see poses.  2 on the drawing) that on the scale of M 1:24 gives diameter of cylindrical part of a lamp of 8 mm and height of 11 mm.  As a prototype the similar lamp of production of the French modeller of Alain Fosse served. 

 

 

The case and cover of a lamp are made of a brass bar, an insert with an opening under a light-emitting diode - from yellow plexiglas, food elements (2 AAA batteries) are established under a deck flooring, contacts for connection of a lamp are inserted into a seam between levels of a deck flooring.

Congratulations for your medal.  Those canons are outstanding!

 

It must be a joy to walk around in that hall with all those beautiful models around. 

I could walk there for hours just watching all those ships.

 

I hope it all ends well in your country, stay safe.
