title   History   title

Classic frigate belonging to the French navy at the end of the XVIIIth century. Equipped with 26 12-pound guns on the battery deck, besides 4 6-pound guns and 4 carronades on the main deck. La Gloire was planned by the shipbuilding engineer Guignace and was launched at St. Malo in 1778. The model is the reproduction (scale 1:90) of the ship during the first year of navigation with the bottom painted white. One year later, in June 1779, as many other ships, the immersed part of the hull was sheathed with copper plates to protect it from corrosion.

Frégate classique appartenant à la flotte française de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Elle était armée de 26 canons de 12 mm en batterie, 4 canons de 6 mm et 4 caronades sur le pont. Elle fut construite d'après des plans de l'ingénieur des constructions navales Guignace et fut lancée à Saint Malo en 1778. Le modèle est la reproduction (échelle 1:90) du navire pendant sa première année de navigation avec la partie inférieure peinte en blanc. Un an plus tard, en juin 1779, comme sur plusieurs autres vaisseaux, la partie immergée de la coque fut recouverte de plaques en cuivre qui devaient la protéger de la corrosion.
