History 

Discover one of the jewels of ship modelling, which will allow you to enjoy marvellous moments and relive the age in which these majestic ships sailed the oceans. The reproduction of the model is faithful to the original.

The “Montañés” represents the maximum level of perfection achieved by Spanish naval architecture, when Spanish ships of the line were a match for those of any navy in the world. The figurehead of this ship is not the royal lion but a “montañes” (highlander), in gratitude for the financial contribution towards her construction made by the people of the mountains.

She was launched in Ferrol on 14th May 1794. It is said that she was an extraordinary vessel, whether sailing close to the wind, running free or with a following wind, and that, more than any other ship, she kept her batteries out of the water. She was engaged in a number of battles, including Trafalgar, where she mounted 76 guns and 4 carronades with mortars, located on her quarter deck. On 6th March 1810, in a violent storm, she sank off the Bay of Cadiz.

Our model kits will provide you with all the elements necessary to ensure the reality of your model ship, down to the smallest imaginable naval detail. We hope that you will enjoy your love of ship modelling with the Montañés, a splendid model ship that will provide you with lengthy periods of creative leisure.
