Product Description

A Latina wood plank-on-frame construction model kit to build the Hermione, a French sailing frigate of 1780.

On the 21st of March 1780 the young Maques de La Fayette embarked on the Hermione, setting sail for America to fight alongside the American insurgents in the struggle for their independance.

Two years earlier, at the Rochefort Arsenal, in a building berch close to the Corderie Royale, work had begun on the Hermione, a light 120 pounder frigate, over 65 metres long, weighing in at more than 1,200 tons and with a sail surface of over 1,500 square metres. spread on three masts. The Hermione was built from plans drawn up by the engineer-shipbuilder Chevillard l'Aine.

Intermediate Skill Level.
Length: 29", Height: 28", Scale 1:50

For new or limited experience wood modelers, we strongly recommend the technique book Ship Modeling Simplified.

Please note: The manufacturer of this wood kit is based in Spain. Although complete plans and instructions are included, the limited English instructions provided require critical thinking and some modification as needed. This is not a build by numbers kit, and is not for everyone. Additional technique books, and or access to the advice of an experienced wood modeler or wood model club is recommended.
