In the late 18th century 'privateers' were small, fast merchant vessels carrying large areas of sail & highly armed with small calibre guns. Unlike 'pirate' ships they flew their national flag. HMS Tonnant (French language: "Thundering") was an 80-gun ship of the line of the Royal Navy. She had previously been the Tonnant of the French Navy and the lead ship of the Tonnant class. Rear-Admiral Horatio Nelson captured her at Aboukir Bay off the coast of Egypt at the Battle of the Nile on 1 August 1798. She was taken into British service as HMS Tonnant. She went on to fight at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, during the Napoleonic Wars. 
The Corel Le Tonnant wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real French privateer corvette. This reproduction of a 1793 French corsair is everything you'd expect from Corel, and more! Frames and keel are pre-cut from high quality plywood, and pre-shaped wooden formers assure correct hull curvature. Hull planking consists of two layers of individual strips. First, you'll cover the framework with flexible limewood, and over-plank it with beautiful walnut. All fittings are pre-finished and ready to use. Dark walnut blocks, belaying pins and gun carriages provide a pleasant contrast to lighter boxwood blocks, trim, and cherry gratings. A variety of metal fittings include brass nails, chain and eyelets, cast metal cleats and anchors, plus realistically burnished metal cannon and falconets. Two photo-etched brass sheets complete the ornamentation. An instruction book with complete parts list supplements four sheets of detailed plans. Wooden display cradle is also included.
