I've been very busy recently, and I've made some good progress on the ship.
I think it's finished for about 1/5 now.
Here you can see the current progress. I've removed the galleries since they don't fit exactly yet.
The yet untrimmed stern, this is the basic design, I will add more details soon.
The Captain's cabin. As you see this part can be taken out of the ship. The decks, galleries, stern, everything is removable so it can be transported, repaired and updated easily. It also adds the possibillity to add an interior.
The Admiral's cabin, larger then the Captain's cabin. The floor isn't completed yet and also this part can be taken off the ship so the Midshipman's quarters become visible.
A view from the lowest gundeck, not yet completed. The floor will be tan or light grey. I will add ropes between the hull and the guns.
Another view, I have to spread out the arches and pillars otherwise the gundeck will get too cramped.
The upper gundeck, also this interior will be completely white with a tan or light grey deck. At the background you see the galleries.
The wall between the Admiral's quarters and the gundeck can be removed during battle. Nothing is more dangerous then a cannonball straight through your stern, especially when there is a wooden wall in it's way.
The helm design, there will be ropes in the middle going to the rudder chains.
The banana details. This part will be on the top of the stern. The two lanterns suppose to be on the Le Formidable.
The wrong colours will be changed later on of course.
Thanks for watching! Comments are always appreciated!
