Corel Model Kits H.M.S. Neptune Wooden Ship Model
Brand: Corel Model Kits
Model Number: SM58
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.Manufacturer: Corel

I bought this model because I wanted a challenge after a previous easier model 'Swift'. The quality of the parts are great and so far no hic-cups but beware the instructions are for a general build and does not go into great detail. Previous experience is required. Take your time and check each step and I'm sure your project will turn out fine. I am only at the planking stage so far and and very happy with the kit. Lots of detailed plans but further research may be required for certain sections? All in all a thumbs up!
