LA FLEUR DE LIS Louis XIV ' galley 1690 in scale 1:48

Gerard Delacroix

The 240 page booklet and the 26 plates with drawings

For over 3,000 years, galleys sailed throughout European waters in various shapes and under different names, from the sun-drenched Mediterranean to the mists of the Baltic Sea. Originally a commercial vessel, the galley was soon transformed into a war ship in the ancient world and reached the zenith of its technical development in the 17th century, before disappearing in France during the 1750s.                   The plates include a drawing of the framework of the entire ship, which will allow the ship’s model builder to complete his model with completely accurate proportions. In conclusion, nearly fifty colour photographs of a ship’s model in various stages of completion illustrate this extensive 240 page.

                        Size of the built model:

The model measures at 1/48 ° (L x W x H):
hull only 1.14 m x 0.20 m x 0.19 m
with masts and rigged 1.14 m x 0.50 m x 0.68 m
