Ship model LE PROTECTEUR, photos, description and dimensions
 

This model of LE PROTECTEUR is 1 : 75 scale. It is a very beautiful and finely worked ship model built to the plans of the Musée de la Marine.

The photos were taken with two different stands. Overall length is 103 cm, width 38 cm, height 83 cm in the larger stand (81 cm with small stand).
 
The ship model is not fixed to the stands but can be taken out, e.g. for transport. There are two stands, of which the small one can be used to place it directly on a flat surface like this model of the Royal Louis.
