7Provincien.jpg (88428 bytes) A feature of the ships of the period was their very ornate decorations, particularly the sterns. We have gone to great lengths to simulate this in 1:1200 scale and are very proud of our achievement.

The detail in this stern decoration is in the casting, this makes it really easy to paint. Photo below shows hull in the process of being painted.
