  1. I had Heller plastic model kit of that one - beautifull ship.
  2. This is Bucentaure nose (supports of the railings not shown here).
  3. Indeed it looks different hull lines, boards, nose and deck plans compared to tonnants and bucentaure, stern looks similar to buc, tonnants have a bit different stern. Ill post some updates tommorow since im doing this in my spare time. Meanwhile while studing tonnants i was amazed to see how equal are the ships in one class as proportions and hull lines and how they have character and slight difference on some lines, rudder, nose. i made this image for comparison all are tonnants - note the bulge on the front of the keel (underwater part) which is removed in the later versions, and the diffe
  4. The compass star is the floor of the captain quarters - you can see the poop deck is removable so you can look inside
  5. http://mnm.webmuseo.com/ws/musee-national-marine/app/collection/record/9028# Here is the "Friedland" in the French naval museum - great model build from the plans of Sane.
  6. After extensive research i felt ready to start modelling the Bucentaure class 2nd rate French ship. Since information about this type is very scarse despite being one of the backbones of french navy in the era next to Temeraire and Ocean classes, luckyly enough after reading and googling about every Tonnant and Bucentaure class ship for information i was able to find some referencess including captured tonnant plans, bucentaure lines plans from a french book by Jean Boudriot and excellent Bucentaure class model "Friedland" in the french naval museum with photos from their site and in the books
  7. Le Mars was tonnant class with no information about its servise according to french wikipedia. There is HMS Mars 80 gunner but it is different ship launched 1848 (bit too late in timeframe). The model in Greenwich indeed looks like tonnant althrough its description states that includes fittings of both french and english designs and refrains of classing the model mentioning that its probably not made to scale. Im making Bucentaure class 3d model tho, Ill make a post when i have more progress
  8. make a ship wheel and shout to the crew using voice attack
  9. Well... nope - the pirate ships were terrible. Like DIY wannabe war ships.
  10. The Elements and Practice of Rigging And Seamanship, 1794 http://archive.hnsa.org/doc/steel/index.htm some good refference material here if things gonna go in details or for 3d modellers
  11. Helping other ship in repairs should be possible only on open seas and should require a lot of time! Like helping fix that broken masts from that nasty storm that have just passed.
