On it Admiral Tourville led his fleet of 70 ships in July 1690 to a victory against the united English and Dutch fleet (Battle of Beachy Head). In 1692 the French fleet with only 45 ships met the English and Dutch again on 20 May at Pointe de Barfleur. With 97 ships they were clearly outnumbered. Some of the French ships were able to escape, but the SOLEIL ROYAL was so badly damaged that it had to moor at the beach near Cherbourg for repairs and was set on fire by the English on 23 May.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Le Soleil Royal 1669”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
