THE PRIDE OF AN EXCEPTIONAL MACHINE: HERMIONE LAFAYETTE
The fabulous wooden model of the so-called ‘Freedom Frigate’ is already here: Hermione LaFayette. Artesania Latina is proud to present its new model of the French boat, which begins a new voyage. Not only we have created a completely new model with incredible details and museum finishes for modelers, we also have developed a complete and detailed multimedia assembly guide so that the assembly of your scale of L’Hermione is a real pleasure.
The scale of the legendary French boat has been made from the original planes, and then created through 3D design, making it a 100% new model. Our passion for craftsmanship is immense.
CONTENTS OF THE HERMIONE LAFAYETTE MODEL KIT
What are the contents of the Hermione Lafayette kit? The scale model is made with high precision laser cut plywood pieces; wood and birch veneer; wood and brass; high quality photo-etched brass pieces; and everything necessary to make the sea a delight to ride this classic gala boarding. The cotton sails are sewn by hand and ready to be placed on the model. The kit has a support to expose the model once it is finished.
It also has a DVD that contains a single step guide and a step with more than 2,000 images in total, but also showing the techniques and tricks of modeling used by professionals.
As an additional kit, not included in the Hermione Lafayette one, and to complete the model, the client can purchase a box with 14 metal figures to be painted. We remind you that they are sold separately from the boat kit. Clearly, its realism brings the soul to the replica itself:
HISTORY OF A LEGENDARY BOAT: HERMIONE LAFAYETTE FRIGATE
On March 21, 1780, the young LaFayette Marquis boards on the Hermione. It left course to America to fight on the side of the American insurgents who were fighting for their independence. Two years earlier, in the arsenal of Rochefort, on a step near the Corderie Royale, the Hermione was built.
Two centuries later, in 1997, the building of faithful replica of Hermione, which in 2015 has completed the same journey as the original ship. Join us on this new journey of L’Hermione!
