This is the Latina 1/87 scale Santa Ana Ship Kit The Santa Ana was built at El Ferrol (Spain) in 1784. She was a prototype of a series of 8 ships and carried 112 guns. In Trafalgar (1805), she fought against the Royal Sovereign. After more than 3 hours fighting, with over 100 men killed, her rigging destroyed and surrounded by many British ships, she surrended. But, during the heavy storm that followed the battle, her crew seized her and the Santa Ana arrived in Cadiz. FEATURES: Brass hardware such as eyebolts, stanchions, rings. and hinges Highly detailed brass bow (figurehead) and stern parts Detailed construction methods allow modeler to form the hull by attaching planking strakes to the false keel and frames.
