The choice of a model based on a Dutch ship may at first seem a little odd, but she was handed over to the Dutch Navy as the former H.M.S. QUILLIAM. She gives a pleasing model in its light and colourful Dutch scheme with all the graceful looks of one of the emergency class destroyers that are so familiar to the British modeller.

Scale 1/96 Length 1.15m Beam 114mm Sailing weight 3.3kgs
The model is based on the kit of the GRENVILLE from our range, but with the plans and fittings modified to fit this famous Dutch warship. As with all the models in the range, the hull is based on a light weight glass fibre hull with a plated finish. Weapons and small detailed fittings are cast in light alloy, larger items such as lockers, carley floats etc, are cast in vacast plastic for light weight to assist in giving the model its outstanding performance on the water. To add the finishing touches, etched brass is used for ladders, dial sights and stanchions. Custom made prop shafts and tubes are included along with the rudder, tiller, to make this a complete kit with its FULL SIZE PLAN and comprehensive instructions
