La Toulonnaise was built in Toulon, France in 1823 for action in the war against Spain. Stationed for a time at Barcelona, she sailed to Cadiz to take part in the bombardment of the port. During a complete overhaul in 1832, the poop deck superstructure was redone, internal and external gunwales, waterways and the planking of the bridges were all replaced.
Corel’s kit is based on a large scale model in a French museum. Plank-on-bulkhead construction features pre-cut ribs and structural parts. Planking, deck furniture, masts and yards are made of the finest woods— African walnut, mahogany, beech, poplar and tanganyka. Deadeyes and blocks are all pre-finished hardwood. Brass, copper and cast metals are used for carronades, falconets and other hardware.
