MIRAGE - FRENCH WARSHIP
 

MIRAGE - 17th century France saw a fierce rivalry between naval architects, artists and craftsmen, as each tried to outdo the other in constructing the finest and most lavish ship. A fine example of these excesses is the Mirage, built during the reign of Louis XIV in 1675.

Corelís plank-on-bulkhead kit Mirage, is an accurate reproduction of this sumptuous vessel. Figurehead, transom ornamentation, windows, lanterns and many other decorative parts are furnished in gleaming gilded cast metal. 84 burnished metal guns serve as armament, and perfectly aligned gunports open and close. Double planking is comprised of limewood for the fist layer. Outer planking is done in a variety of hardwoods for a subtle contrast in colors. Fittings include pre-carved shipís boat, laser cut grating strips, cast metal anchor, brass belaying pins, wooden blocks and deadeyes, four diameters of rigging line and silk-screened flags and pennants. Three sheets of plans and illustrated instructions are suited for the advanced modeler.

CAST METAL STAND AND NAME PLATE ARE INCLUDED
