Corel Wappen Von Hamburg AASM28
Wappen Von Hamburg was commissioned by Admiral Karpfanger, and she was then employed, very successfully as a heavily armed Convoy Escort Ship. He engaged and sank a large number pirate ships during her short but colourful career.
On October 10th, 1683 fire broke out on board in the port of Cadiz. The magazine exploded killing Admiral Karpfinger and 22 others and destroyed the ship.
Corels Wappen Von Hamburg is a magnificent example of a 17th century German fighting ship. Technical accuracy in Corel's plank-on-bulkhead kit is superb, and materials are the finest available. All poplar, walnut and other wooden parts are pre-cut. Fittings in gilded cast metal, copper, brass, boxwood and walnut replicate every detail of the original, including the 58 cannon she carried. The lower decks of the finished model can be seen by lifting the upper deck gratings. Plans and instructions, sail material, silk banners, and wooden display cradle complete the kit.
