Tags: battleship | craft

Built in 1693, the St. Philipe was one of the last warship built in the fading golden age of the Spanish Empire. She was richly decorated and carried enormous firepower for her day on three gun-decks. However, the St. Philipe never fought a battle and was scrapped in 1736. ( Scale 1 : 80 )
