Product Description

The “Montañés” represents the maximum level of perfection achieved by Spanish naval architecture, when Spanish ships-of-the-line were a match for those of any navy in the world. The figurehead of this ship is not the royal lion but a “montañes” (highlander), in gratitude for the financial contribution towards her construction made by the people of the mountains. She was launched in Ferrol on 14th May 1794. It is said that she was an extraordinary vessel, whether sailing close to the wind, running free or with a following wind, and that, more than any other ship, she kept her batteries out of the water. She was engaged in a number of battles, including Trafalgar, where she mounted 76 guns and 4 carronades with mortars, located on her quarter deck. On 6th March 1810, in a violent storm, she sank off the Bay of Cadiz.

Plank-on-bulkhead construction features laser cut plywood, boxwood and walnut parts. Double planking is done in lime wood and African walnut. An amazing array of fittings includes a variety of hardwood blocks and deadeyes, masts and yards, mast hoops and laser cut grating. Bell, transom windows, hinges, eyebolts, rings and belaying pins are brass, and a sheet of photo-etched brass parts duplicate ornamentation. Stern gallery decorations, chimney, bell tower, door frames, anchors and cleats are cast metal. Armament consists of machined brass cannon barrels on metal carriages. Figurehead, nameplate and other small parts are burnished metal. Cotton rigging line in is plentiful in two colors four diameters. A full complement of sail, consisting of 22 different pieces, is pre-sewn and ready to mount. Nine plan drawings and clearly written instructions, accompanied by corresponding color photos, pave the way for a model as magnificent as the original ship.
