Ship of Sir Francis Drake
The Golden Hind was an English galleon best known for her circumnavigation of the globe between 1577 and 1580, captained by Sir Francis Drake. She was originally known as Pelican, but was renamed by Drake mid-voyage in 1578, in honour of his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose crest was a golden 'hind' (a female deer). Hatton was one of the principal sponsors of Drake's world voyage.
The ship was armed by 18 guns of various calibres. This model was basically reconstructed after pictures of Golden Hind on Hondiusí map of the world from 1595.
