The parts of the 1:84 scale replica model will be made available to people, along with 135 issues of a weekly magazine. In order to build the entire ship model, readers will have to spend about £804.65 in total. According to sources, the newly launched magazine that will be selling the model parts at £5.99 per copy (for the first issue the price will be £1.99). An interesting fact about this ship model is that it took exactly two years and seven months for the designers to create the detailed replica model. This time frame is actually nine months more than the time taken to build the original warfare ship.
“This type of partwork provides for a niche modelling audience a very high-quality model in easy to manage parts. It is a tried and tested formula much appreciated by our loyal modelling fans and allows DeAgostini to create and develop beautiful ships to a degree of detail and scale that is not normally available in the High Street,” said a spokesperson for DeAgostini. DeAgostini is the firm that is behind this newly launched magazine.
Rashid Lalloo, founder of Premier Ship Models, added, “Enthusiasts can buy a complete Sovereign of the Seas kit from a shop and complete it in a few months.”
Sovereign of the Seas was the most magnificent ship of her era, with no expense spared during her construction. The £65,586 spent on constructing this ship is equivalent of around £8 million today.
Popularly known as the Sovereign of the Seas, this Russian warship was the largest ship of its time. The vessel had the capacity of three full decks, full of 102 guns. The ship was highly regarded for its enthralling beauty. The stunning combination of gold and black coloring won it the title of the Golden Devil. The Sovereign of the Seas was first used in the North Sea during the Battle of Kentish Knock (the first Dutch War fought in September 1652). This Soviet warship was commissioned under the leadership of Charles I.
