Spanish bomb ketch

Recommended Posts

I thought it was the same ship as candelaria as well but the stern shape is slightly different. It might be because of the modeler. 


Will delete the name and keep it as Spanish bomb ketch.

"Cacafuego" is literally "Shitfire" or "Fireshitter."   I don't think any ship was ever christened as such, but the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de la Concepción captured by Francis Drake in 1579 was apparently known by this nickname.




Also, Patrick O'Brian fictionalized the Spanish xebec-frigate El Gamo as "Cacafuego" in the novel Master and Commander.
