On March 21, 1780, the young Marques de La Fayette embarked on the Hermione, setting sail for America to fight alongside the American insurgents in the struggle for their independence. Two years earlier, at the Rochefort Arsenal, in a building berth close to the Cordeire Royale, work had begun on the Hermione, a light 12-pounder frigate, over 64 meters long weighing in at more than 1200 tons and with a sail surface of over 1500 square meters, spread on the 3 masts. The Hermione was built from plans drawn up by the engineer-shipbuilder Chevilliard l’aine.

All parts of this wooden model ship kit are laser cut for accuracy in this plank-on-bulkhead kit. This Kit uses woods such as Plywood, Boxwood, Sapelly and Manzonia.
