This kit also has cannon carriages where needed and gun port lids. The kit includes silk screened flags, five diameters of rigging line, detailed plans, illustrated instructions and a display cradle.
The H.M.S. BELLONA was one of the most famous 74-gun ships of the British Navy. The BELLONA, launched on 19 February 1760, sailed to join the battlefleet which was then blockading Brest.
On 30 December 1780 the BELLONA took part in the capture of the 44-gun Dutch ship Princess Caroline; then she cruised off Gibraltar, in the North Sea and the West Indies. She was employed in the blockade of Cadiz; then, the BELLONA was at Jamaica, at Portsmouth and at Barbados.
Although more than 50 years from her launch were passed, the BELLONA served in the Navy until February 1814.
