The Santa Ana was built at El-Ferrol (Spain) in 1774. She was the 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 of fighting, with over 100 men killed, her rigging destroyed and surrounded by many British ships, she surrendered. But, during the heavy storm that followed the battle, her crew seized her and the Santa Ana was able to return to Cadiz (Spain).
Kit includes everything needed to build except for glue, paint and tools. Pictorial instruction manual in color and detailed plans make building easy and a pleasure.
Artesania Latina has again outdone themselves, this model replica of the Santa Ana is the best kit I have seen come out in years, coupled with their easy to follow color pictorial instructions, detailed plans and generous use of high quality woods, this kit will surely set the example for other kit makers.
