History of the Wappen Von Hamburg
The 58 gun, 17th Century Brandenburg Ship was commissioned by Admiral Karpfanger, and she was then employed, very successfully as a heavily armed Convoy Escort Ship. He engaged and sank a large number pirate ships during her short but colourful career. On October 10th, 1683 fire broke out on board in the port of Cadiz. The magazine exploded killing Admiral Karpfinger and 22 others and destroyed the ship. This model unique of its kind, has been designed to offer an excellent model in terms of quality.
