1:1200 Buildings & Dockside Series
This series complements our Napoleonic Naval range. It is based on the harbour and city of Toulon, France, 1793, at the time of the siege.

The models were all built for an 8ft x 4ft diorama, the larger items being cast in resin, the rest in white metal. Some are based on actual buildings in Toulon while others are generic in design. Their style is appropriate to the 18th/19th century and so could be used in a variety of settings.

Many of the resin and metal buildings will fit together to form larger models, eg the Brick Cathedral (RB12) is an impressive model in its own right but if required, there is a metal Tower (M29) or Porch (M30), which will form extensions.

The diagrams for this series is set out over a series of pages. As this is a fairly long list, the links will be repeated at intervals.

Please note: measurements given are of the base, height is to the highest point; all are approximate. Diagrams are not to scale.

Resin - Civic and Dockside Buildings
The buildings ref .RB1-10 and RB13 were modelled using plans and fa£ades of buildings actually in Toulon, 1793. Buildings of this period had long frontages with many regularly spaced windows, column and other architectural features which would be hard to reproduce accurately without the aid of a computer. They were produced using two machines - a circular/table saw with a fine, plastic cutting blade and a computerised milling machine with a digital readout which tells you where the cutter is to within a 50th of a mm!

* A cordorie building is one which would have been used for laying up cables. Our model is taken from plans and facades supplied by the Maritime Museum in Paris, of the cordorie at Toulon, a building a quarter of a mile long!. There were buildings of similar length in all the major seaports to supply the various national fleets with cordage.

** Ravelins were located beyond the city wall. Their initial function was as a fortification, however, if and when overrun, defenders could fall back and fire down into the ravelin from the wall above. The triangular shape of the ravelin would force a wave of attackers to divide before attaining the city wall.
