L'EGYPTIENNE 24-prd French frigate - 1799 in scale 1:48

Gerard Delacroix

Summary of the book:
24 x 31 cm booklet and 39 plates in a flap box
Jacket illustrated with a watercolor by Jean Bellis.

The increase in the guns caliber on board of the frigates during the eighteenth century implies a gradual increase in the size of these ships. Naturally, the race for caliber will include, at the end of the century, the 24 prd (weight of the ball in pounds) previously reserved for the ships. During this period, only four units were built. Two of them will be characterized by remarkable performances, La Forte and L'Egyptienne, frigates designed by François Caro.

Based on first-hand contemporary documents and two existing models kept at the Musée de la Marine, it was possible to reconstruct the plans of one of them for which a lot of information is available.

The monograph thus presents the complete study of the frigate L'Egyptienne armed with 24 prd guns. This analysis shows in detail all of her construction with her framework, equipment, decoration, mature, sails and rigging.

This study required the creation of 39 plates reproduced at 1:48. A 216-page booklet explains the story of the frigate, its design, the details of drawing, the rigging rules, and various technical notes needed to build a model. The booklet is illustrated with numerous 3D drawings and 60 photos of the two existing models of the Marine Museum.                                                                                                                                         Size of the built model:

The model measures at 1/48 ° (L x W x H):
hull only 1.28 m x 0.28 m x 0.27 m
with masts and rigged 1.66 m x 0.64 m x 1.28 m
