About us

At the end of 2013 I started a scratch build of the Batavia. It surprised me that there were few construction kits of Dutch ships within the modeling world. After the Batavia model was completed in 2014, I started investigating the possibilities of marketing my own line of Dutch ships. In June 2015 I founded Kolderstok. 

Kolderstok is now 7 models in, various family members work within the company and many packages are being sold worldwide. Especially in the Netherlands it is close to impossible to imagine the wooden modeling world without Kolderstok.

At Kolderstok you will find a number of unique, good quality kits of well-known Dutch ships, and excellent support from us during the build.
