Wooden Ships - 1 by mjranum-stock Wooden Ships - 1 by mjranum-stock
Louis XIV

Wooden Ship models and boat models/nautical models from the French National Naval Museum. Some of these shots are lower quality than I would have liked due to interfering glass and/or poor lighting. Back in the 18th century, when a contractor proposed to build a new ship for the government, they often presented extremely detailed scale models of what the ship was going to look like. These models are on display - some of them are huge and I tried to get right down onto the decks to get interesting angles.

I thought these might still be useful for references.

Amazing. For a while I thought it was a Swedish ship due to the three crown emblem.

In Brittan, the ship models are called admiralty models, and often have removable sides to show the construction. Sometimes the first captain would get the model, but they were often kept at the Navel headquarters in Portsmouth for reference. They are SOoo cool.
