HMS Jalouse Model Boat Kit
The HMS Jalouse was originally a French vessel named, La Jalouse, and captured by the British in 1797. The 1700’s were an era in history that saw huge levels of conflict between the British and French, for example during the Seven Years War and the Napoleonic Conquests. For this reason, both countries were eager to develop the strength of their navy and achieve dominance on the seas.
It was this race for conquest that probably attributed to the commission, design and development of some of the finest ships of all time, such as the HMS Victory. Caldercraft have effortlessly managed to capture this era of history and the ships that floated on some of the most dangerous waters in their collection called Nelson’s Navy.
The Jalouse is an example of a French warship of the era, whose distinguishing features included the 90-degree angle to the keel of the rudderpost and the tops and crosstrees and trestletrees. She carried 18 6-pounder guns, which were later replaced with 18 32-pounder carronades by the Royal Navy
