Soleil Royal (Royal Sun) was a French 104-gun ship of the line.

She was built in Brest between 1668 and 1670 by engineer Laurent Hubac, was launched in 1669, and stayed unused in Brest harbour for years. She was said to be a good sailing ship and her decorations were amongst the most beautiful and elaborate of all baroque flagships. The emblem of the "sun" had been chosen by Louis XIV as his personal symbol.

During the night of the 2nd and 3rd June 1692, at the Pointe du Hommet, she was attacked by 17 ships, which she managed to repel with artillery fire. However, a fireship set her stern on fire and the fire soon reached the powder rooms. Although the population of Cherbourg came to rescue, there was only one survivor among the 883 crew.

The remains of the Soleil Royal now lie buried beneath a parking space next to the Arsenal - not the Football club Laugh

I must admit, for someone who isn't really into 'Period Ship Modelling' I do find that quite appealing and certainly the best one yet from DeAg in my view?

I really like it, what a beautiful model?!! Blink Huh Confused BigGrin
