Work has finally commenced with the a project long in the planning and delayed by other stuff, but I have just finished building the four Dutch flagships present at the Battle of Camperdown as part of a plan to build the Dutch and British fleets present at the battle.

The delay has been useful in that it has allowed me to correct some earlier misapprehensions and ideas about how these two forces would look and to allow for the inclusion of the models necessary to complete the two line ups and I take a look at these issues in this post.

The models are beautiful, JJ

Were any of these ships among those captured by the French in 1795?

One of my favourite battles, I have happy memories of refighting this at the Rotterdam Maritime Museum in 1997 :D

Hi Chaps,
Thank you for your comments.

Grelber – Yes the 68-gun Gelikheid (previously Frederik Willem), the 44-gun Monnikendam, and the sloop Pallas.

David – I'm really looking forward to running this interesting battle. I look forward to seeing you next weekend at Yeovilton.

Cheers
JJ
