San Felipe Open Hull
This is an exclusive Open Hull edition of the San Felipe, where the model is fully see through to showcase the artwork of our master craftsmen. The ornaments on her body made her more beautiful than any other ships at her time. Thus, to recapture the beauty of this ship into the model, we have used the most exotic wood that are available, the highest quality brass fittings that we can cast and more than 200 hours to put together this magnificent model. Examples of wood use include mahogany and western red cedar. These materials are transformed into art pieces by the skillful hand of the master craftsmen. If you look closer, you can see an evenly smooth surface of wood on the deck. It was done more beautifully then most pieces of fine furniture. Wood pieces of different shades and colors are carefully selected and used to create an impressive look. The stern is the most decorated area with many small brass ornaments, brass railing, figurines and lanterns. There are round shape stairs connected the main deck and the forecastle deck. The main deck is also equipped with a couple of life boats, which even come with their own paddles. And then there are the skylight, ship bell, and ship wheel…etc. The model comes with its original flag and rest on a steady wooden base with attached metal name plate. 100% assemble, ready for display.
