THE PRIDE OF AN EXCEPTIONAL MACHINE: HERMIONE LA FAYETTE
The fabulous wooden model of the so-called 'Freedom Frigate' is already here: Hermione La Fayette. Artesania Latina is proud to present its new model of the French boat, which begins a new voyage. Not only we have created a completely new model with incredible details and museum finishes for modelers, we also have developed a complete and detailed multimedia assembly guide on DVD format so that the assembly of your scale of L'Hermione is a real pleasure.
The scale of the legendary French boat has been made from the original planes, and then created through 3D design, making it a 100% new model. Our passion for craftsmanship is immense.
