20th Century Ship Model of the Sovereign of the Seas
The Sovereign of the Seas, an early British "First-Rate Ship of the Line" was launched in 1637 and was the most magnificent ship of her era. Designed in 1630s by Phineas Pett, she was the first ship to have three full gun decks, carrying a total of 102 guns, on the orders of King Charles I. No expense was spared in her construction. Renamed the Royal Sovereign when Charles II came to the throne in 1660, she fought in several battles during the second and third Dutch wars between 1666-1673. The nine years war against France broke out in 1689 and the Sovereign of the Seas (Royal Sovereign) was present at the Battles of Beachy Head in 1690 and Barfleur in 1692 when the Royal Navy fought alongside the Dutch. Her career came to an abrupt end when she accidentally caught fire at Chatham on 27 January 1696. These days the Sovereign of the Seas remains one of the most intricate historic ship models to build.
Class and type: 90-gun first-rate ship of the line. The ultimate combat vessel of the 17th century. This was a massive warship with unmatched firepower and an incredibly thick hull to withstand canon fire. You could take this ship and march it straight into the fight while taking hits. When fully crewed, this large ship was also much faster than other ships of equal size.
