Look like they could be Panzershiffe.

Although the scale would be right, and they do have sort of a Panzerschiff look to them, as far as I know that company has always cast in resin, not metal.

Yes, you beat me to it.

Panzerschiffe doesn't make French Predreads.

They are still active, but real life is keeping them busy

The small ship looks to me like a Russian Korietz-class gunboat (the modernised version, after losing her barkentine rig). The single funnel and stubby bow are very un-French for the period.
