Le Canot Imperial, scratch built by Janos 1:25

Post by janos » Thu Oct 27, 2016 8:03 am

Hi
this is my latest model, just recently finished. It is Napoleon's oared barge, Le Canot Imperial. She had been built in 1811 for Napoleon I but he used it once. The decorations were much simple that time. Then Napoleon III got it re-decorated in the 1850's and used it once again in 1858. Currently the original barge is displayed In the Paris Maritime Museum. I bought the plan from the Museum and the model is in 1:25 scale. The hull is built of Pear wood and Walnut, the cabin from Perobe Rosa and Hornbeam. The carvings are made of European Boxwood. The model is fully scratch built.

Absolutely incredible. The carving of the people holding the crown is the best. A very beautiful ship.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

That is simply a joy to look at, well done. I note that each of the oars has a representation of a fish on it; freshwater fish? What is the story there? Regards.

Graham - unfortunately I don't know the types of fish which were painted on the original oars neither do I know the exact types I used on the oars. Being ignorant sometimes speeds up work :?
