ship modelThe first class ship H.M.S. Victory was launched on May 7, 1765. It played an important part in the English fleet from 1778 to 1812, and built its reputation in the important battles at Ushant (1781) and San Vicente (1797). But it was October 21, 1805 at the Cape of Trafalgar where, under the command of Admiral Nelson, this fabulous ship brought victory to the English fleet over the Spanish French armada. The battle of Trafalgar, whose bicentenary will be October 21, 2005, marked the climax and supremacy of the Royal Navy when H.M.S. Victory made history. As a museum since 1992, the Victory can be seen and admired in the Royal Navy port in Portsmouth. (England)

This is without a doubt one of the finest models of the H.M.S. Victory. You will find that the instructions are unsurpassed. It is plank-on-bulkead construction and includes pre-sewn sails and baseboard.

MODEL SHIP Riverboats were jacks of all trades. They served as the lifeline for cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across the river. As passenger boats, they helped to shrink the vastness of America, and as showboats, they made that vastness a little less lonely.

Artesania Latina has improved this popular plank-on-bulkhead kit for easier assembly. Molded wooden pieces are now included for the bow and stern sections, so you can shape them with accuracy. Pre-cut ribs and hardwood parts are included for hull, deck and super-structure construction. Fittings include brass decorations, ship's bell, steering wheel, handrails and chain. Windows, doors, chimney heads and paddle wheels are cast metal. Galvanized wire, brass cables and cotton rigging are all provided along with brass pin nails. Illustrated instruction book makes building easy.

NOTE: This is a new improved version of Artesania Latina's kit. The model varies a little from the photograph. For example, there is one walkway at the bow instead of two. This is a more detailed model than the one pictured. We are sure you will be happy with it.

It is difficult to encounter in the history of sailing vessels a ship with so many diverse activities during her active life as the American Frigate U.S. CONSTELLATION. In fact she started her active life in 1798 and was withdrawn from sevice in 1955. Her missions were various. She seized numerous ships, and defended the Hawaii Islands against annexation by the British in 1845 and 1849. She was also the first US warship to visit China in 1842 and was assigned as a school ship in 1871. Today she brings back glorious memories to tens of thousands of tourists who visit her each year in Baltimore. If she could talk, she could tell us a great deal of American History.

Artesania Latina's kit is double plank-on-bulkhead. It features brass hardware such as eyebolts, stanchions, rings, hinges and more. A highly detailed brass bow (figurehead) and stern parts are also inlcuded.
