Hallo Udo,
many thanks for sharing with us these numbers of photos..... a lot of interesting details.
It is possible to see, that the Batavia Replica is unfortunately already some years old, and also the lack of financial funds.
Sometimes in the background we can see a construction of another ship....is this the status of the De Zeven Provincien ?

Thanks Uwe and Pat71,

you are right, the construction in the background is the 'Zeven Provincien'. As mentioned by you already, the built got stucked due to the lack of financing.

Financing is back on track at the moment. At the moment extensive maintenance is done. Zeven Provincien is on hold. To make up for that they are building a very large size model.

Many thanks for the additional information and the great photos of this model
Do you know the scale? something between 1:6 to 1:10 ?
