French schooner, 1823
Launched in Toulon on 13 August 1823, the TOULONNAISE served in the Spanish War under Captain Joursin, was stationed at Barcelona and then sailed to Cadiz where it took part in the bombardment of the port.
In 1832 it was completely overhauled at Brest and parts of the internal and external gunwales, the waterways and the planking of the bridge were replaced and the entire poop deck superstructure was redone.
Our model is based on drawings taken from a large size model in a famous French museum.
The high level of pre-preparation of the components and the numerous diagrams contained in the box make this model very easy to construct, expressly designed for beginners.
