This is a high quality FULLY ASSEMBLED Norwegian Lion built in 1765 by the Nyholm shipyard. This is an Exclusive Edition where the model has a unique serial number etched into the hull, which allows us to identify production date, material used and all other production information of a model. Master craftsmen using historical photographs, drawings or original plans meticulously handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This beautiful Norske Love model has a unique white paint on the bottom half of the hull. It features plank on frame, three decks, and two and a half rows of ferocious metal cannons on each side of the ship. The front bowsprit and three large masts are connected securely using advanced rigging and lines painstakingly knotted and fastened by hand. Each yard has an attached hand-stitched unfurled sails made of fine linen. Metal anchors and a wooden rudder are visible on the front and rear of the ship. On the deck, there are wooden cabin, wooden windlass, and many other spectacular ornaments. There is also an exquisite detailed admirals quarter on the stern with beautiful handcrafted metal lanterns and ornaments coated in brass. This model comes standard with a solid wood base and brass nameplate. Itll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.

The Norse Love, also known as the Norwegian Lion, was built in 1765 by the Nyholm shipyard, close to Copenhagen. The ship was named after the Norwegian Lion and the Danish-Norwegian Imperial Coat of Arms. There was a normal crew of 667 men and an armament of 70 cannons of iron with 26 cannons on the lower deck, 26 cannons on the middle deck and 18 cannons on the upper deck. The Norske Love was used as a guard ship in Oeresund and other Danish waters. In 1795, after having been stripped into a block ship, she was used to give shelter for homeless families after the fire in Copenhagen that same year. In 1798 she was deleted from the naval register.
