I found the drawing of van de Velde also in Laughton´s book "Old Ship Figureheads & Sterns"

title:
The "Sovereign of the Seas" 1637 (From a draught by Van De Velde, the elder, in the collection of Junius S. Morgan, Jr., Esq.)

This is the ship I add the first to my wishlist. And while I'm very sure I will go on in scratch build. These books will find in the future a place on my bookshelf
