    Product Description
    Discover Le Renard, a wooden model kit of the cutter launched in Saint Malo in 1812 by the famous corsair Robert Surcouf with the main objective to attack and capture trading enemy ships in France. His actions and his legacy to the city of Saint Malo converted Le Renard into a symbol of the strong French naval identity. Guided by a detailed step by step instructions you can complete your model of this beautiful vessel, exclusively licensed to Artesania Latina.

    Le Renard was the last vessel belonging to the famous Robert Surcouf. In September 1813 he fulfilled his greatest feat by winning fight against British schooner HMS Alphea, making the city of Saint Malo in a shelter for the families of the biggest corsairs of the world. In 1991 a replica of the original Renard was dumped, which is still proudly plying the waters to the delight of visitors.

    Build your 1/50 scale model of Le Renard, a corsair cutter of the nineteenth century. Its construction system using false keel and frames brings the assembly of your model closer to the construction of the actual ship. The model includes laser cut board pieces, hardwood, brass, die-cast and fabric. For the assembly you can follow a complete full-colour step by step guide in 7 languages.
