Sail Vessel Le Montebello - 1850 3D model
The Model is an in-scale reproduction of the French Navy ship of the line Le Motebello.
Hull dimensions are about 63.3m at first deck (63.2 at floating line), with a width of 17m, and a draught of 7.5m. Sails totalize 3250 sq.m
The ship was built in 1812; the Model shows her arrangement in 1850, one year before her refitting to receive a 140 hp steam engine (one propeller).
This typical 120 guns sailing vessel was generally used by european navies in XIX century, since the time of Napoleon the First.
On 31 October 1836, Le Montebello was driven ashore at the Grosse Tour, Toulon; she was subsequently refloated.
This ship partecipated to the Crimea war as the flagship of admiral Armand Joseph Bruat. 120 sailors, quite half of seamen on board, including admiral Bruat, perished for a cholera epidemy there.
On 5 March 1855 she took part in the siege of Sevastopol, then in the expedition to Kerch and in the Battle of Kinburn.
In 1860 Le Montebello was sent to Toulon as a school-ship for gunnery, and in 1867, she was used as a floating barrack. She was scrapped in 1889.
The present Model has been drawn using Blender 2.82 and completed with version 2.83. Rendering have been made using both Evee and Cycles, using PBR and HDRI lighting.
The drawing includes a simple sea/sky background.
The Blender file is published in not compressed format and totalizes 226.508 Verts, 216.544 Faces and 44.428 Mb; additional 14.5 Mb are used for the 29 texture images.
In the compressed format the blender file is 8.491 Mb (21.631 Mb including textures).
In case you are more familiar to the old 2.79 blender program, I converted the 2.83 file to 2.79b, still using Cycles as Renderer. Remember anyhow that the 2.8 in general and 2.79 are not fully compatible, then some operative charactheristic could be absent, although rendering seems satisfying..
