It is 32.6long x 27.2. High x 13 wide, making it impressive yet not huge.
Youll certainly find a place of honor for it. Unlike similarly sized and priced ships like Corels La Couronne, HMS Bellona or Victory, its scale is. 1:40, instead of 1:100.What does that mean, if the size is about the same? As rigging blocks, bilge pump, doorways, stairways and cannon, with their carriages, rigging and. Accessories, are all two and a half times LARGER! On most ships in this range, such details are not. Only difficult towork with, theyre difficult to SEE once complete. The Berlin, with its larger scale.
Emphasizes such details, making them pop out, and yet theyre easier to work with. A delicate job, is much easier to get man-size (or woman-size) fingers in, to tie knots, rat-lines.
Just look at and admire all the stern castings to see what I mean. Yes, theres only a single deck of cannon, but you can see all of them, unlike most ships with two gun decks, where half are hidden. Even the cannon become models in themselves, when theyre almost 2 long, instead of less than half that. Planking is walnut and other wooden parts are beech and mahogany.
Figurehead, bowsprit, stern and transom decorations, cannon and hundreds of other pieces are beautifully detailed gilded metal. Providedetailed doors, name plate and other details. Blocks, deadeyes and belaying pins are fine-grained yellow boxwood.
Canvas sail material, four fabric flags and mahogany display cradle are also included. There are only four sheets of full size plans, but they are HUGE: 32 x 43, and each sheet contains both overall views and sections, as well as many small details.
As usual, these Corel plans are the work of art weve come to expect from them. Youd want to frame them, if they werent so huge.
