Here are some more images of IMAI's 1/50 scale Catalan Merchant Ship. This model
is actually a 1/1 scale model of a model whose original now lies in the
Prins Hendrik Maritime Museum in Rotterdam. These models often built
by mariners were usually given to church's as offerings either for
pious reasons or to bring the sailor luck. This model kit is a
representation of one those models still in existence. Plus this model
is one of the earliest known representations of a European merchant
sailing vessel of the 15th century.
