La Toulonnaise Top Sail Schooner 1823
La Toulonnaise – La Toulonnaise was built in Toulon, France in 1823 for action in the war against Spain. La Toulonnaise was 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 La Toulonnaise 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. Corel’s newly revised plans and step-by-step instructions with numerous diagrams make this model suitable for modelers of limited experience.
