Rise of the Jeune École

Today sees the release of our remastered French Charlemagne Aeronef models. The new models are larger but sleeker than the old one (which has been retired), with a distinct tumblehome to the hulls. There are three slightly different hull types and three superstructures which all fit each other allowing for nine variations. In keeping with French naval building practices of the time, no two ships are quite the same ! Variants are supplied randomly, if you purchase multiple models at one time we’ll make sure you get different versions. Each model comes with three turrets (although not all variations need three) which again are a random mix of single and double-barrelled ones. Altogether, with the different hulls, superstructures and armament layouts, we reckon there are 48 slightly different models that could be created.
