Full hull model of the 'Le Heros' (1770), a French two-decker ship of the line. Prisoner of war work. Model is decked, equipped and rigged with sails. Name "Le Heros" on stern. Re-rigged in 1906. Scale: unknown. A contemporary full hull model of the French 74-gun, two-decker 'Le Heros' (1770). This unusually large-scale model is constructed plank on frame using wood, with the addition of horn for the wales. The name 'Le Heros' is inscribed on the stern. As is typical with POW models, the masts and bowsprit are slightly over-scaled in height and rake. The deck is complete with numerous fittings including the hammocks stowed in the netting on top of the bulwarks, which has then been covered by a white painted canvas as protection against the weather.
