French two-deck ship of the line from 1760 - 1/50 self-built

Hello everyone,
I apologize for my English but I hope above all through photos to be able

to show my work.

French two-deck ship of the line from 1760 - 1/50 self-built

Ship of the line of 1760 that sailed as protection for their trade ships on the route to and from India / China.

I found a drawing from a book showing only the side of the fuselage and some frames.

I scaled the drawing to 1/50 approx. To make it as easy as possible to build.

This building is half a fantasy and that's why I ask sorry for those who exactly replicate the historical model, but as I said, it should be fun.

It is the first big sailor that I build and that's why I only build it as a hull,
and also because pc is not my strength to hope to have it done in life time


also:

gray cardboard 2.5 mm sit for the frame construction

It's a lot of work to cut, but it's going very well

because i don't know how to build such a ship, i will build it in two parts, and to keep it simple first in water linee.

so i have provided a cut where windows and frames cross each other so that it is easy to have the opening when necessary.
on the photo with drawing the cuts are marked in red. so the part is only to travel out later.
at times i read it to better build the board flank.

at the end of the work still attach straps to reinforce where you think it will be necessary.

and further with the extension of the bridge,

this is also in gray cardboard because later it will stick to the deck.

ways corona house lock I have to take care of my cardboard reserves, that's why I use everything that can be found in the house,
from spaghetti to toothpaste pots

as far as "almost" the frame is completely assembled,
I glue a tab and 1/2 cuts to each frame, so that I can glue the flanks.

the position marked with an X is the position

where frames and cannon windows overlap.

Then it starts with the planking of the hull,
with cardboard strips (160gr cardboard).
part easy work, ...... part difficult because i can't make

the drawing on the pc and only try to cut the edges.

to make it easier for me with the planking on the bow

(or front part of the ship)
I thought I would build the ship in 2 halves and then I put

a length (1 cm box) with bow and stern in between.

Hi!

Nice progress so far. A so called self-made "scratch-build" is always a pretty project and even more exciting when you have no real plans!

You do exactly proper with the stripes for the hull, when you have no computer program to calculate the curvature of the individual parts for you, then you have to do it "old-school" with pen and paper. Very nice!
And do not feel sorry for the cardboard. Use as many trials and stripes as it requires to make just one part proper! After all, this is just card and paper...

I made for instance at least three times the stern side part, before getting it right for my current build of the Neptune (hopefully)... - see attached picture...

One hint though... It is better to use a bit thicker card for the hull. Why don't you try a 1 mm thick card like from all sorts of packages (frozen pizza boxes, cereals, etc..) ? The benefit is that it is more durable, less prone to "accidental" dents and you can even shape it a bit round! I describe how to in this post here, and Ab describes it even better for instance here!

I can only encourage you to try it out! All you need is thicker cardboard, a sphere or a round smooth hard object (I use a stone) and a slightly soft surface (I use the backside of a mouse pad).

It seems you speak also german, if you want, you can private message me here and I can explain in german

Fair winds and Ahoy!

so flank is done so far. it's not a beauty, but does its job.

I also roughly sketched the important areas in order to have an idea of ​​what I still have to do.
