The new artillery, corrected in scale and now much more detailed including photo-etched parts, has the howitzers that the ship carried in Trafalgar. The previous metal boats have been replaced by wooden construction, more realistic.
Once assembled, the model of the Santa Ana (22905-N) measures 46.45” (1180 mm) length, 34.25” (870 mm) height and 18.11” (460 mm) width. Its design by means of false keel and frames brings its assembly closer to that of the real ship.
SANTA ANA, SHIP OF THE LINE, HISTORY: BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR
Discover the Santa Ana naval modeling kit with the wooden model of this famous line ship of the Spanish Navy from the 18th century. Armed with 112 cannons, it was the prototype of a series of 8 identical ships that would constitute the nerve of the Navy.
Built at the Ferrol Shipyards and launched in 1784, it was the first of a series of three-deck ships called the Meregildos. Captained by José Gardoqui, he intervened in the Battle of Trafalgar inflicting heavy punishment on the English ship Royal Sovereign. Attacked by several English ships, he was captured and later saved by the Rayo, Montañés and San Justo, who towed him to Cádiz in the middle of the night. He would end up sinking in Havana, where he had been sent to prevent Napoleon’s troops from capturing it.
