This is a magnificent, museum quality model of the Royal Louis. It was 100% hand built plank on the frame by the master craftsmen. This model is made of mahogany and teak. Stripes of rosewood were added to increase its exotic value. Around her hull, you can see brass cannons, brass rails and fittings, a big brass figurehead in front of the bow, beautiful art works around the stern. The details are just amazing. It takes hundreds of hours to build the hull and the riggings. The model comes with its original French flags and rests on a steady wooden base with attached metal name plate. This is an exclusive edition of the Royal Louis, where the model is uniquely identified by a laser cut hull serial number. The model is 37″ long, 36″ tall and 12 wide. Her captain was a Squadron Admiral. Able to shot 48-pound bronze cannonballs, the Royal Louis had unrivaled firepower. It was a huge vessel, dwarfing Dutch and English ships of similar power and intimidating all who crossed its path. The item “Hand Made Model Ship Royal Louis E. E.
