Model of Le Fleuron 1729
My latest project. However, this one has no deadlines, no schedule. No one riding my back, and if I mess up I can relax, have a cup of tea, and do it again.
Its therapy in wood form. A real antidote to the working week.
I'm building her from scratch...just from a set of plans and a plank of pear.
She's an 18th century French 64 gun man of war. I'm guessing she will be an eight year build. When fully rigged, she will be about 5 feet long, 18 inches wide and 5 feet high. I'll post the odd progress update every now and again if anyones interested.
