About the San Felipe model

Build a superb large-scale replica of one of the most beautiful and formidable ships of the 17th century. The magnificent Spanish Man-of-War San Felipe was launched in 1690, armed with more than 100 cannons. Elaborately decorated, three-decker ships of the line such as this were symbols of the might of Spain and its ruling dynasty and the San Felipe is one of the most splendid examples of its time. 

This model has been designed and built using modern techniques to achieve the highest quality results possible. The superb materials and workmanship, along with the clear, detailed instructions, make it straightforward to assemble, even for novice modellers.
