The French 64-gun ship LE PROTECTEUR was launched 1760 in Toulon and sailed until 1789. The ship of the line was part of the fleet of d’Estaing in the battle of Grenada on 6 July 1779.
The Musée de la Marine in Paris has a 1 : 33 model of the ship. This ship model was made to plans of the Musée de la Marine.
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.
This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
