This is Latina 1/65 Scale La Nina Wooden Model Ship Kit. Discover La Niña, a wooden model of one of the three Spanish caravels used by Christopher Columbus on the first voyage to the New World in 1492. Built in the shipyards of the Port of Moguer (Huelva, Andalusia) a few years before the voyage, it had to be the flagship of the expedition after the stranding of the Santa Maria. The expedition departed from Puerto de Palos to the Canary Islands on August 3, 1492. On this scale, the Latin sailboat we represent in this model was transformed into square sails. After discovering the New World La Niña would return with Christopher Columbus on board reaching Lisbon on March 4 and finally the port of Palos on March 15, 1493.
The model has high precision laser cut board parts, wood and birch veneer, various pieces of brass, foundry and fabric as accessories, high-quality brass engraved parts, as well as ready-to-fit hand-sewn sails. For the assembly of the model of La Niña, one of the most famous ships in history, you can follow our complete step-by-step full-colour instructions in 7 languages, accompanied by the full-scale drawings of the completed boat.
