Hello Didier:
I use "SketchUp" for most of the design work. I am able to import images and drawings and then create plans and parts.

Regarding the images you sent: I looked at them, and they will be very useful. Thank you very much.
Mike

04 – Lower hull, Screws, Decks

Hello Modelers,
Work continues . . . The lower hull now has the proper color, a rudder and two screws.
The propeller shafts are made of wood. All the blades and fittings are paper and card.
The grip block has been removed and the decks (card) are being test fit, not yet glued down.
This ship has, what I will call a “shelter deck” that is about 17 feet or 5.18 meters (two stories) high.
So about 75% of the main deck will be covered by the shelter deck and its walls. There will be some boat storage inside and on top of the shelter deck.
More on that much later.

Kind Regards,
Mike

The underwater part is nicely finished and the deck is also very convincing. I always admire the precise work you do: the connections are perfect even now ...

Regards, Joe

Looks terrific on that sturdy wooden building jog, Mike!

Smooth work on the underside of the hull.

Don

Thank You David, Joe and Don.

Renaud sent to me a series of large drawings showing various areas of the ship. Included were some detailed drawings of the upper hull, as seen from above. I was able to “stitch” together five of them that showed the ship from bow to stern (Image 034). That allowed me to make horizontal measurements for many of the items in the sides of the upper hull, such as portholes, 138mm gun ports, hatches and torpedo net booms. If I am interpreting the drawing correctly, it also seems to be providing some detail of the boat storage inside the shelter deck.

So this group of photos shows the upper hull, as I slowly work my way toward the stern.

“Merci beaucoup” Renaud.
If I ever get the opportunity to travel to Blangy-Tronville, I will buy you lunch at your favorite Café, perhaps in Amiens, where we will enjoy une entrée, le plat principal and of course, desert. . . while I listen to your stories about these grand ships.

Kind Regards,
Mike

Very smooth work on the hull plating. Thanks for including the drawing and the very lucid narrative.

I wish I could be present at that déjeuner in Amiens!

Don

Thank you Don.

Hello John: Regarding the photo . . . I don't think I have seen this one before. It appears to be late in her career. One can see some modifications around the main guns and the masts. The photo is small so it is difficult to see some of it. But it is interesting. Thank you.
Mike
