San Felipe | Large Scale Model Ship
San Felipe | Large Scale Model Ship
The San Felipe is typical of the largest warships built around the end of the 17th century to protect Spain's colonial interests in the Americas, and to safeguard the long and hazardous passage back to Spanish ports. Heavily armed and ornately finished, three-decker ships of the line such as this were symbols of the might of Spain and its ruling dynasty.

2015-03-21 10:08:55As I come to the finishing stages of my Sovereign of the Seas model I started to turn my attention on to what I would do next.
