This high quality, highly detailed, expert level, tall ship model is Brand New, fully assembled and ready for display. This tall ship model was specially designed & built by the plank on bulkhead method (joining multiple small pieces of wood like Rosewood, Mahogany, Teak and other exotic tropical wood together on the hull). The tall ship model is built exactly to scale as the original Soleil Royal was with many details. The task required skillful craftsmen hundreds of hours to accomplish. The Le Soleil Royal was named in honor of the Sun King, Louis XIV and was one of the most powerful ships of her day. As flagship of the revitalized French Navy brought into being by Minister of Marine Jean-Baptiste Colbert, she was sumptuously decorated with wooden carvings depicting a variety of motifs emblematic of the French monarch. The taffrail was embellished with a rendering of the sun god drawn across the sky by a team of horses, while the ornate figurehead showed a seahorse flanked by winged maidens.
