Schulpengat was the second twin car deck ferry ordered by TESO (Texel’s Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming). The ferry was in service between Den Helder, and the Dutch island Texel. Our 1:1250 Schulpengat ship model measures 8,84 cm.
Lifeboats Class Valentijn (BFT1250-54a,b,c)
This is a set including 3 ship models Class Valentijn (from Dutch Lifeboat organization KNRM), each in a different livery. Our lifeboats Class Valentijn are the smallest available, they’re only 0,88 cm!
This Dutch class of very fast RIB based lifeboats became so successful, it’s also exported to other countries. The Italian Guardia Costiera does have the largest non-Dutch fleet of this class. Also, Norfolk’s Caister-on-Sea lifeboat is from the Valentijn class.
Three different liveries are available in one set:
1. BFT1250-54a like 'Beursplein 5'
2. BFT1250-54b like 'George Dijkstra'
3. BFT1250-54c like 'Winifred Lucy Verkade-Clark'
