APOSTLE FELIPE - SPANISH GALLEON
INCLUDES PRE-SEWN SAILS
 

APOSTLE FELIPE - Spanish galleons conjure up visions of sunken treasure, pirates and conquistadores. Built during the 16th and 17th centuries, they served the Spanish crown as merchantmen and warships. A typical galleon was a three-masted vessel with a square rig, sloping hull sides, flat stern and protruding bow.

The Apostle Felipe is a welcome addition the OcCre line. The kit uses plank-on-bulkhead construction with laser cut wooden parts. Fittings are abundant in quantity as well as quality. Finely cast metal pieces include doors, stern ornamentation, bilge pumps, 30 gun ports and frames, falconets, gun carriages with wheel shafts and wheels, cleats, lantern and anchor stocks. Gallery ornamentation, cannon barrels, chain-plates, bowsprit iron, trestletrees, eyebolts and rings are brass. Ready-to-use boxwood blocks and deadeyes, 4 diameters of rigging, silk-screened flags and pennants, plus pre-sewn sails recreate the rig plan of the original galleon. Seven plan drawings and clearly written instructions, accompanied by corresponding color photos, take the guesswork out of building a magnificent model.
 


The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
