It wasn’t more than two weeks ago that we announced that we’d received a new shipment from Kolderstok, replenishing our supply of the Dutch kits, including the popular Duyfken ship model kit. Well, it seems that there must have been some ship modelers out their waiting for this kit to be back in stock again, and they all sold in a very short time.
Well, that’s the bad news. The good news is that we’ve just listed the most recent release from Kolderstok, the Speel-Jaght!
The new Kolderstok kit is a 1/50-scale model kit of a type of boat that began to appear in the early 1600s, as people began sailing, not just for commerce or fighting, but for the joy of sailing, and pleasure yachts began to appear.
This is the smallest and least expensive of the Kolderstok kits, unless you include the Bijboot, ship’s boat kit. The kit includes laser-cut frames and some parts, walnut planking, dowels for the masts and spars, rigging material, blocks, all necessary fittings, sail material, and photo-based instructions with text in Dutch, English, and German. Stand is also included.
According to Kolderstok, this kit is a difficult level of 1 on a scale of 1 to 4, with 1 being easiest.
