Caldercraft HM Granado Wooden Model Kit
Model Number: 9015
The Caldercraft HM Granado wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real life ship. Granado was ordered on September 14th 1741 and the keel was laid on November 18th 1741. Although it is uncertain who designed the Granado, it is commonly attributed to Thomas Slade, the naval Surveyor who oversaw the construction of the ship at Ipswich. Thomas Slade also went on to design famous ships such as H.M.S. Victory.
Launched on June 22nd 1742, Granado was taken to Harwich, fitted out and put in commission as a sloop.
On January 22nd 1759 Granado and the squadron under command of Commodore John Moore anchored off Basse Terre. The following morning the citadel and batteries of Basse Terre were engaged. On February 7th, the fleet moved to engage Fort Louis at the entrance to Cul de Sac Bay. The engagement began the following day and by February 15 had ceased with the capture of the Fort.
