COREL PRINS WILLEM WOOD SHIP KIT 1:100 SCALE
Prins Willem by Corel
Plank-on-Bulkhead Wood Ship Model Kit
Launched in 1650, the Prins Willem was probably the largest vessel in the service of the Dutch East Indies Company, sailing with a crew of 254, plus 22 wives and children. After only one commercial voyage, she was taken into the Dutch Navy and refitted as a warship. She fought in the Battle of Duins in 1652 under the command of Admiral Witte de Witt.
Corels's Prins Willem ship model kit is based on a 17th century model on display at the Rijsmuseum of Amsterdam, depicting the Prins Willem as a warship. Construction is double plank-on-bulkhead with pre-cut parts. Ready-to-use fittings of fine hardwoods (basswood first planking and walnute for the second), gilded cast metal and photo-etched brass are typical of Corel's attention to quality. Generous instructions (5 pages in English) and highly detailed plans (10 sheets with step-by-step illustrations) help you build an accurate replica and an impressive model.
In our view ... Corel represents the very best of European model ship construction kits.
