Hallo and welcome here in the forum.
A beautifull model you are showing us here. Interesting way with one side all guns rigged for battle and the other side with colored gunports without guns to show the deck structure.
Your rigging works are realy looking good. Did you use everything from the kit, or did you pimp something, f.e. The blocks ?
Do you have an actual project you are working on?

@zoly99sask Thanks for your tips, so excited that I found this forum, I have so many works to share with you guys, hope you will enjoy them. BTW, how can I move this thread to complete built section?
@Uwek Thanks, yes, everything from the kit, this is the best version of Le Requin I can find on the market so far. A 1/350 Udaloy class destroyer Admiral Panteleyev is in progress, waiting for new photo etched parts. I will post the pictures in a new thread.

She is looking realy good :)
One question: Did you use also the drawing set of Jean Boudriot and Hubert Berti?
https://ancre.fr/en/monographies-en/18-monographie-du-requin-chebec-1750-.html
or was the drawings from the kit supplier good enough?
The drawings from the kit is a very good reference, and the modellers complete works are also valuable, I don't have the drawing set of Jean Boudriot and Hubert Berti, I will post pictures of this kit, give you an idea of how is this kit looks like.

You might want to do a retro build log for this ship like you were building now,I woluld like to see her coming together and I guess others too.

The content of this kit looks like real good quality. The carvings are very good.
Do i see correctly, that the hawse pieces are already shaped in the kit?
