In my opinion, the best Gloire is the one produced by Oliver Maertin as OPT - 7. Outstanding and still available from him direct. Next would be the Skytrex one, listed in Sammelhafen as a Triton. Lots of them on the second hand market but OOP according to my info. The Helvetia Gloire is last, quality-wise, but by far the rarest, so quite high on the second hand market.
There may also be one on either Shapeways or WTJ as a 3-D printed model. I'll check and report back.
Gentleman, Whilst preparing for my presentation HMS Warrior vs USN Intervention 1861 (a success), I noted I didn't have a good miniature of the above French Ironclad.
Who makes a real good one? - as everybody's going to be looking at it closely - like the others displayed.
Please post a photo or two of yours with details.
My sequel presentation will be Intervention: France vs USA/USN, via Mexico 1861. Thanks
