This model by Frans Dekker, is of the government commissioned Statenjacht. The hull was made of pear wood in 2 sections, starboard and portside. The deck is made of self-made triplex. Made of pinewood it gives a look if there is really a wooden deck whit different planking. The deck is very detailed with the chimney, deckhouse, statues, pulley, blocks and more. The small statues are made of glue, the bigger ones (6 mm long and 2 or 3 mm wide) of palm-wood. The statue on the bow of the ship is made of palm wood and 7 mm high even as the lion under the bowsprit. The detailed rigging has different ropes and the blocks are made of palm wood. There are 6 small guns on board. Overall the ships is 125 mm long and 126 mm high with the hull 88 mm long by 40 mm wide. The bottle opening is 24 mm. A good looking model whit all the details on it I wanted.
