Description
The Frigate Dom Fernando II e Glória was the last sailing ship built by the Portuguese navy. The wood used was top quality teak. The artillery consisted of cannon in wheeled carriages on the gun deck and carronades on the upper main deck. The ship was launched in 1843 and was named after the Portuguese king and queen. She made her maiden voyage in 1845 and in 1865 she was converted into an artillery training ship. By the time she was retired from service in 1878, the frigate had travelled over 100,000 sea miles, equivalent to five times round the world. The Portuguese navy was still using the permanently moored ship for artillery training between 1889 and 1938. She was then taken over by a charitable foundation in 1940 to provide a basic education and training in seamanship for youngsters from poor families. In 1963 the ship caught fire and sank. In 1992 the wreck was salvaged and the frigate was rebuilt as a museum ship to be exhibited at Expo 98 in Lisbon. The model kit represents the well-known sailing ship in its condition in 1850. An authentic reproduction of the frigate can be made from 234 components. In addition to textured sails, cordis included to represent the running and standing rigging, together with an extensive flag chart.
