The threedecker ROYAL LOUIS of 1780 with her 122 cannons was one of the
prominent first rate ships of the line in the French royal navy. The
ship represented a high point of technology development in ship
building. The model was made according to the plans of 1779.
Please take your time to have a good look at the set of photos. There

That excellent model of the ROYAL LOUIS is a very beautiful piece of art. The ship's
power, the elegant lines of the hull and the impressive rigging are
exquisitely shown in the model.
The ship model is not fixed to the stand. Alternatively, it could be put
a flat board like this maple tree board (borrowed from another ship
model, doesn't fit exactly) or
be set directly on a flat surface, as shown in the photo on this
The model of the ROYAL LOUIS is 1 : 90 scale. Length is 108
cm, width 44 cm, height 94 cm. Without stand, placed directly on a flat
surface, the height would be only 85 cm.
nthusiasts and model
makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone
builds such a model by himself.
