Thank you every one for your kind words. I was able to do a lot on the San Felipe this afternoon making the other side treenails and some other touch ups before I move on to the next part.

I have always admired this model. Several of my friends have completed it and it always looks so magnificent. Yours is no exception.

Thanks every one. Well, I learn from here and still learning.... so, heres the latest. Finished one side of the lower wales and stained them. The walnut 2x4 is very brittle and kind of hard to work with.

I love your work on this beautiful ship model. You are doing a wonderful job! I have this kit but I also have other projects going before I start.

Anyway, I have read comments on other forums that this ship didn't really exist because the manufacturer's history gives a date of 1690. However, I have found evidence that there was a Spanish ship-of-the-line commissioned in 1732 named Real Felipe that was often called San Felipe. Contemporary drawings and paintings show that this ship strongly resembled the Panart kit. I firmly believe that the model depicts the Real Felipe (San Felipe) of 1732.
