Hey guys,

Today my package arrived.
The Prins Willem from Corel. This project has to wait a little wile because I'm busy with another project.
But I can show you some result from the unboxing en my findings about quality of the wood and statures.

The wood is fom a verry good quality. And there is alot of wood. More then you need.
The ornaments are bronze with a thin layer of gold and mutch details.
Deadeyes, blocks, ropes and other small pieces are from good quality and brass pieces are from verry good quality.
There is no photo manual. Just 10 A1 papers with drawings but verry clear to understand.

Overal I think this kit is more than good quality. If I have to rate this kit in numbers I give it a 9/10

Hi, My name is Frank, I am from New Jersey, USA. I also just purchased both the COREL Prinse Willem and Model Shipways Charles W. Morgan. I will start he C. W. Morgan first. I am fairly new to this and up to now I felt I may have bit off more than I can chew with the Prins Willem. While the materials are first class, the instructions and directions are absolutely horrible. When you start the P.W. please keep me informed of your progress, I would like to follow your building lead if you do not mind.

The Prins Willem is a more advanced ship to build and the manufacturer thinks you now all the basics of shipmodeling when you buy this.
There is also a book you can buy from the author Herman Ketting. I know it's in Dutch and German language but I don't know if it is in Englisch.
This book is a must have to complete this model historical correct.

When I start building this one ( in a couple of months) I let you know.
There's also al building log from @Steef66 about the Prins Willem.
