Corel SM58 Neptune 1/90 scale wood ship kit!

50 canon warship – end of 1700 – The NEPTUNE, reconstructed on the basis of original shipyard models perfectly preserved in the Greenwich Naval Museum, represents a 3rd class vessel (55/60 canons), which took part in the battle at La Hougue on 2 June 1692, where the English fleet commanded by Admiral Rooke, defeated the French fleet commanded by Admiral Tourville. NEPTUNE has decorations that are typical of the Royal vessels of the period and reproduces the decorative part of the famous Admiral Prince in a smaller scale. The vessel underwent major changes, in the same way as other similar ships: the spritsail mast therefore disappeared and the jib boom was added to the bowsprit, and the bumpkin booms and the yards for the topgallants were added to the topmasts.

Corel’s kit is based on a model in the Greenwich Naval Museum. Laser-cut wooden parts facilitate plank-on-bulkhead construction. Fittings consist of hardwood blocks and deadeyes, pre-carved wooden lifeboat, cast metal gunport frames, mast caps, hoops, cleats and chainplates. In the tradition of the Royal ships of the period, gilded metal ornamentation is intricately detailed and plentiful. Five sheets of plans and illustrated instructions pave the way to a magnificent model.
Length: 22″ – Height: 24-1/4″
