Product description : Wooden boat model: La Belle Poule

Wooden boat model: La Belle Poule of the Occre brand.

The "Belle Poule" was a 60-gun French Navy frigate. Frigates were versatile and fast warships designed for speed and maneuverability, performing roles in both combat and exploration. Frigates like the "Belle Poule" were known for their speed and maneuverability, making them ideal for a variety of tasks, including pursuing and attacking enemy vessels, as well as for exploration and patrol missions. Although its construction began in 1828, the Belle Poule was not launched until 1834. It was one of the first ships to be built in a covered shipyard, allowing builders to delay construction when political and financial circumstances were unfavorable. Its design was inspired by the USS Constitution frigate class. It was commissioned in July 1835, and displayed quite good sailing properties. What really made this ship "Belle Poule" famous was the repatriation of Napoleon's ashes aboard the Belle Poule from the island of Saint Helena to France. An event that will be remembered as it marked the end of the Napoleonic era and left a significant impact on the course of the history of France and Europe.

Enfin un modèle qui sort des sentiers battus avec la version ultime de la frégate de premier rang La Belle Poule dans sa configuration qui l a fait entrer dans l histoire. La monographie de Jean Boudriot et Hubert Berti ne pourra pas trop nous aider pour les finitions, car elle traite des plans initiaux. Rangement de la boite et matériaux traditionnels de Occre. Instructions claires en format A3. Modèle bien équilibré, accessible aux jeunes modélistes. Mon bémol: à cette époque, les coques des navires en bois étaient doublés de cuivre, je suis étonné que l option n existe pas dans la boite.
