This is a magnificent museum quality model of the Royal Louis, a first-rate, 116-gun ship of the Royal French Navy. Originally, the ship was constructed "plank on the frame" by master craftsmen in 1757. After two years of work, it launched in 1759. Our detailed model is made of mahogany and teak and is constructed with the same care and craftsmanship as the original. Stripes of rosewood were added to increase its exotic value. Around her hull, you can see details of craftsmanship which you can see are featured on the deck where stairs connect different floors; a big wooden dinghy that comes with its own paddles, skylight panel, ship wheel, and ship bell. Brass cannons, brass rails, and fittings, a big brass figurehead in front of the bow, beautiful scrollwork around the balustrade on the stern make this model highly sought by collectors. All our models go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. . 37" W x 12" D x 36" H.
