Abstract: We briefly explain how kinematical data in the solar neighbourhood can be used in order to construct fully analytical dynamical models of the Galactic disk with three integrals of the motion. The Hipparcos mission gave rise to many dynamical studies but those studies lacked the third component of the space velocities, i.e, the radial velocities. Here, we combine Hipparcos parallaxes and proper motions with CORAVEL radial velocities.
