San Juan Nepomuceno

This model of San Juan Nepomuceno was built from an Artesania Latina kit. San Juan Nepmuceno was a seventy-four gun Spanish ship of the line launched in 1765. She served in the Spanish armada for forty years until captured in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805
The ship was 2700 tons with eight officers, eleven midshipmen, nineteen leading seamen and 492 able seamen. The model is 1:90 scale and took the builder three years to complete. A Plexiglas case protects it.
