The SAN FELIPE is a well-known ship among the ship model builders. The model looks elegant and very beautifully designed. The ship makes a decorative piece of art on display at home or in office.
However, most probably there never was a Spanish three-decker warship with the name “San Felipe” in 1690. If you are interested in more details, look at this page about San Felipe authenticity.
This model is a fine piece of work that emphasizes the elegance of the hull and the impressive rigging. It is a beautifully designed ship.
The ship model is not fixed to the stand. Alternatively, it can be put on a flat board like this maple tree board (borrowed from another ship model, doesn't fit exactly) or be set directly on a flat surface as in the photo above, stabilized by a tiny wedge, similar to this model of the 1780 Royal Louis.
The model is 1 : 75 scale. Length is 97 cm, width 38 cm, height 88 cm. Without stand, placed directly on a flat surface, the height would be only 80 cm.
This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
