The East Indiaman Bangkok


"The Bangkok"
The Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie or the Dutch East India Company's trade with the Caribbean Islands is well known and nothing represents their firm grip quite like when the EastIndiaman Bangkok delivers a load. A little smaller than a warship this lumbering behemoth's girth provides the pleasures of the orient to any one willing to pay and a bountiful prize to anyone daring enough to take her.

  1. Very nice looking ship. Is she fully scratch-built, or from a 'kit'?

  2. Old Glory kit, with a lot of aftermarket parts and scratch built rigging.

    I found it in the Jewry making section at a craft shop. Very pleased someone noticed.
