The Corel Reale de France wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real French Galley.
Lateen rigged galleys like this one were the backbone of Louis XIV's Mediterranean fleet. Reale De France carried 8,000 square feet of sail and 427 oarsmen. Because of her low hull, water swamped her deck even in slight seas.
This model ship kit by Corel features double plank-on-bulkhead construction in beech and walnut with pre-cut wooden parts. Stern ornamentation is gilded cast metal. Other decorations are in etched brass. Armament includes five cannon and eleven turned brass falconets. Rigging is supplied in five diameters. Also included are 59 pre-shaped oars, cloth sails, and silk-screened flags. Thirteen sheets of detailed plans plus instruction book show you how build a magnificent replica of the Reale De France that's almost four feet long when completed.Manufacturer: Corel
