The three-masted 20-gun H.M.S. Greyhound was launched at Deptford on February 13, 1720. Her mission was to fight the pirates that plagued the Mediterranean coast. Although she was graceful and sleek, she was no match to the more agile and heavily armed pirate ships.

H.M.S. Peregrine was built in 1686 for the fleet of King George III as a sixth rate vessel. Carrying 18 small-caliber cannon, she was too lightly armed to participate in the important naval battles of the day. Instead, she was used for escort duty and to transport important persons and messages.
Based on original Admiralty plans, Corelís kit replicates the H.M.S. Peregrine after a late 17th century overhaul, when her small spritsail-topsail mast was replaced by the jib boom as an extension of the bowsprit. Plank-on-bulkhead construction features laser cut wooden parts and double planked hull. Highly detailed cast metal parts are used for ornamentation, anchors, mast caps, chainplates, gunport frames and other details. Burnished metal cannon provide fire-power. Hardwood blocks and deadeyes, brass nails, three diameters of rigging, silk-screened flags and pennants, cotton sailcloth are also included.
Six sheets of plans by Bruno Volonte and clearly written instruction manual take you through assembly.

The Prins Willem was probably the largest square stern ship of the fleet of the Dutch East India Company. Fitted out at Middleburg in 1649-1650, she sailed with a crew of 254 plus 22 wives and children. After one commercial voyage, she was modified for use as a warship and taken into the Dutch Navy. In addition to demolishing the forecastle and the stern bulkhead, 6 firing ports were added, three on each side. For a brief period, the Prins Willem was the flagship of the famous Admiral Witte de Witt fighting in the battle of Duins in 1652.
