Révolutionnaire', port 3/4 bow
Scale: 1:96. A full hull model of the 'Révolutionnaire' (1794), a French frigate. The model is decked. The origins of the model are obscure, but French prisoners of war may have made it. It shows the ship unrigged and on a building slip before launch, with the wooden treenails that hold it together featured prominently. 'Révolutionnaire' was built at Le Havre in 1793 as a 40-gun ship. Although French ships tended to be bigger than British ones at this time, it was captured by the British frigate 'Artois' and others on its first cruise in 1794. It was then received into the British navy as a 38-gun frigate. It took part in Bridport's action against the French at the Ile de Groix in 1795, and Sir Richard Strachan's action against some of the French ships that survived Trafalgar in 1805. It was broken up in 1822.
