It is a very great work! I create 3D-models of sailing vessels. This is one of my favorite themes! Additional, the Bronze English British guns, Borgard and Armstrong, I have researched for 2 years (EDIT: Because my first vessel is the Sphynx). Spend more than 3000 EUR in books and studied / reworked / researched the proportions and compared it to close to all given sources in the books or libraries. Today I are close to 99% right shape of its real pattern. The 3D-visualization in this century in a gameengine is what my content relfects.

Dear Lorn6,

I browsed Ancre for some new books. I have an additional question for the book you mentioned: Is it in English? The Link means "EN" but description says "in French" (but English text below).

Great, thank you very much! One of my next options is the 74 gun ship series.

I have sent an email to "ANCRE" to have response on your answer ...
I will give you the information as soon as I get it.

Oh yes, Boudriot. Very great books! I actual started with all the British guns- and ship-books and later I focus the 74 gun ship book series and your gun book. Have you any relationship to Ancre or the book or is it your source for own working?

Exist for french guns an similar pattern by calibre? Unfortunately the book is actual out of stock but I am highly interest to know if it contains the construction behind the patterns? For example: 1st Reinforce 2 of 7 gun lengths, center of the trunnions 3 of 7 gun lengths + 1 calibre of the ball etc. Same for the rings.

I have almost the entire collection of books of the company "ANCRE", and they have always served me of reference.
