San Felipe and her historical background


The SAN FELIPE is a favourite ship among the ship model builders. The model is elegant, very beautifully designed, and makes a decorative piece of art to be displayed at home or in the office.
However, a Spanish three-decker with the name “San Felipe” most probably did not exist in 1690. The San Felipe models show construction elements of hull and rigging of Spanish ships of the line around 1700. But the question remains: Why don’t the kit makers refer to a ship of that time that did exist and has been described in detail? If you are interested in more details, look at this page about San Felipe authenticity.

This ship model emphasizes the rigging and the handling of the sails. One can easily imagine the wind blowing. 
This ship model is one of the eight ship models we delivered to the Morada Seaside Resort at Kuehlungsborn near Rostock on the Baltic coast. It is a beautiful hotel directly at the Baltic Sea beach, and our models are on display in the passage to the restaurant.
