This is a small galleon in the 350 ton range, derived from Life-Like's Spanish Galleon kit. The kit itself has been derived from a picture in Bjorn Landstrom's classic book The Sailing Ship, which has been redone in the recent Osprey book Spanish Galleon, 1530-1690. In the latter work, the ship has been identified as the middle of the century San Esteban. It does look a little primitive for a front-line galleon, but the kit can be used to represent a small private ship or a hulk. She is pierced for 22 small guns.
She measures 6" from the tip of the bowsprit to the taffrail, 3 1/4" on the waterline, stands 5 3/4" tall.
