Built in 1865, this 2700 ton Spanish galleon fought in the Battle of Trafalgar. Carrying 74 guns, she was one of the 15 French and Spanish ships battered into surrender as Lord Admiral Nelson lay wounded on the deck of the H.M.S. Victory.
This advanced kit is suitable for ship kit builders who previously built two or more models of a similar style.
Artesania Latina's elaborate kit features plank-on-bulkhead construction with pre-cut plywood frames and keel. Individual walnut planking strips cover the hull. Molded formers assure proper bow and stern shape. Ready-to-use fittings are plentiful in a variety of fine hardwoods, bronzed cast metal, white metal, and brass. Pre-printed flags, cotton sail material, and several diameters of standing and running rigging are all included. Three sheets of detailed plans and pictorial instruction book make building a pleasure.
