The ship was launched in Chatham as a 1st rate with 100 cannon in 1670. The HMS Prince was designed by Phineas Pett. He was a relative of the Phineas Pett who built the famous Sovereign of the Seas in 1637. HMS Prince took part in the Battle of Solebay 1672 during the Third Anglo-Dutch War.
In the London Science Museum one can have a look at a contemporary dockyard model of the ship.
The ship model was built without sails to allow for a better view on the very detailed, impressive rigging. It is a very beautiful fine piece of work, clearly showing the shape of the hull of ships of that time.
The ship model is 1 : 68 scale. Length is 85 cm, width 33 cm, height 88 cm.
This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
