Wooden Ship Kits

SANTISIMA TRINIDAD First-Rate Ship of the Line 1789Kits

 
Built in Havana in 1769, Santisima Trinidad carried 120 guns on three decks. Badly damaged in the battle of Cape St. Vincent in 1799, she was rebuilt with the addition of a fourth deck and the number of cannon increased to 136, making her the largest ship of her time. In 1805, she sailed into the Battle of Trafalgar with a crew of 1,048 men and her immense 4-decked sides showing the barrels of her formidable guns. The British disabled and captured her during the battle. She sank in a storm the following day, ending her 35-year service to the Spanish Navy.

#195-952-1 Plank on frame construction . Santisima Trinidad ship model kit is a wonder of naval engineering in miniature. Single plank-on-bulkhead construction uses a variety of exotic woods, all pre-cut and ready for assembly. Walnut and beech planking strips provide a pleasing contrast. Fittings and ornamentation are faithful reproductions of the originals. Turned brass cannon, falconets and gun barrels provide firepower. Burnished metal cannon carriages and gunports, brass chain, laser cut grating strips, blackened metal anchors, expertly cast white metal transom, a sheet of photo-etched ornamentation and gilded metal figurehead add realistic detail. Four diameters of rigging keep hundreds of boxwood blocks and deadeyes fastened.

OcCre provides a full set of hand-sewn cotton sails, and silk-screened flags complete the Santisima Trinidad kit. This is as close the real thing as you can get - even the lifeboats are built as plank-on-frame wooden models!
