Santa Maria

Santa Maria was Columbus's famous flagship in 1492, when he discovered America. His fleet included three ships, "Santa Maria", "Pinta", and "Nina".
About the model
Kit: Artesania Latina, 1:110 scale

Modifications: Several, mostly on rigging and deck.

Notes: The guidance sheet of the kit was too simple, so I used Bjorn Landstrom's book "Kolumbus" as a guide. We must remember, that there are no pictures available of the actual Santa Maria, so all pictures of it are only "best guesses" based on knowledge of ships during those days.
