Corel HMS Neptune 58 Gun Warship 1:90 Scale Wood Model Ship Kit (SM58)
Deluxe Materials Speedbond PVA (AD10)
Deluxe Materials Roket Max Thick Cyano (AD45)
The Corel H.M.S. Neptune wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real British Heavy Frigate.
The H.M.S. Neptune, reconstructed on the basis of original shipyard models perfectly preserved in the Greenwich Naval Museum, represents a 3rd rate vessel (55-60 gun), 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. H.M.S. 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 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.
The Corel H.M.S. Neptune kit allows you to build an accurate reproduction at a scale of 1:90 of a classic, fully-armed English vessel of the period, with 58 cannon, of which 26 are on the lower deck, 24 on the main deck and 8 on the quarterdeck. Particularly pleasing from an aesthetic aspect, the H.M.S. Neptune represents perhaps one of the last British vessels so richly decorated of that period. The kit includes pre-cut keel and frames, all fittings and accessories, and exceptionally detailed instructions and plans.
